Great to be so far out into the wilderness. Brilliant to have the animals wandering around the lodge. Food is pretty standard fare but well cooked. Staff are delightful. Place is a little tired, but good value. Other more expensive resorts would probably be more luxurious. For us, it was perfect, a little rustic, and down to earth. Open fires...

I had booked this place as a bit of luxury. We have stayed in much cheaper safari lodges which were much more luxurious! We arrived early afternoon and were met by a woman who took our details etc but did not offer us either a seat or a drink. She briefly showed us around and informed us we were the...

We had a nice stay. However, if compared to our other numerous travel experiences, especially in South Africa, it is absolutely NOT value for money. Simple food, glass missing in windows, leak stains on the ceiling, and many more things like that. It is more of a three-star lodge. Otherwise, the staff were very friendly. Would not stay there again.

Be aware: If you´re looking for amenities like free wifi in each room or tv or an excellent barkeepe and dico beats then it is the wrong place.

We asked for the double bedroom with en suite bathrooms as we were hosting my sister from the USA, and we wanted us all to have privacy.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our beautiful Plett Accommodation is a historic and charming colonial-style Safari Lodge that was built in early 1800 by Baron Joachim von Plettenberg, an early South African pioneer and conservationist, who used the original, smaller Lodge as his base to explore the then untamed African landscapes. Built from local stone, the Safari Lodge has lost little of its original 'out of Africa' feel and has spectacular views across rolling lawns where zebra and antelope roam freely, to the indigenous forests and majestic Tsitsikamma mountains in the distance. ... more   less
