This was our first night in South Africa. We had flown into Port Elizabeth, hired a car and set off in baking sunshine. By the time we got to Tsitsikamma the cloud was so low we could hardly see a thing and the rain was beating down. We drove over the gorges in the mountains but we only knew because...

This is an old country house which has become a hotel. It is located opposite the Knysna Elephant Sanctuary which is very convenient except that you need to book this attraction in advance, so we missed it!

Excellent beautiful hotel with fabulous lounges and incredible staff, all very friendly and helpful. One thing to note is that dinner is a set menu with communal dining - a nice idea and we enjoyed the evening and excellent food, however would have been nice to know prior to arrival.

The bar was too small for the number of guests. While the internet speeds were OK for rural South Africa, the wifi coverage in...

We stayed here for 4 nights. Initially we were not too happy with the room allocated but the hotel offered us a much more attractive room which we happily accepted. This was spacious, very clean and well equipped. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfasts were very good, with an extensive range of items on offer. There are two issues...

Lairds Lodge was one of six hotels we stayed in in South Africa and stood out for its warmth & friendliness from the moment we walked in. There was a cosy feel to the whole place, both public areas and excellent bedrooms, the staff couldn`t have been more helpful & friendly and the food superb. We would love to go...

The staff were so nice and very helpful. We relaxed straight away, helped by a complimentary glass of fizz. They had great knowledge of the area and plenty of suggestions of what we could do with our time. Rooms, food and general surroundings were all amazing. Thank you all so much.

Two nights stay, wished it was more. From the moment we arrived we were treated to wonderful service in sumptuous surroundings. The rooms are large and tastefully decorated with beautiful artwork. The building offers so many outdoor and indoor areas to lounge around, all tastes are catered for. The food was terrific as was the service and the setting. Help...
