Plettenberg river lodge is right on the river, waking up to the most amazing views. The rooms are well designed and beds are comfortable. A few warnings that may put people off: - No safe in the room (a must in Africa) - No restaurant at night or room service - No breakfast on Sunday or public holiday without prior...

We visited on our Honeymoon, and stayed for a couple of days in the Honeymoon Suite. It was great value for money, was nice having our own space, and had a lovely view over the river. Though its actually quite a basic set up, the place was decorated nicely and it we really enjoyed or stay. Its nice an easy...

Love the Lodge's layout. Stunning view and ambiance being on the river. Lovely big room. Bedding can do with change (old style base with posts - too big for mattress). Restaurant a bit limited but understandable with distance from town.

Thank you for Staying with Plett River Lodge and your review. At the restaurant we are trying to focus on a smaller menu so that we can deliver quality. But maybe we can also look at expanding the menu to suit more tastes. We apologize about the mattress and hope that your still enjoyed your stay. Have a lovely day

The place was beautiful, right next to the calm river with an amazing view on it. The garden with the flowers was stunning as well as the smell of it.. We loved the romantic bed and bathroom of the honeymoon lodge. We would love to come back!

Such a cute and darling place. The grounds were beautiful.... The room was lovely, the food we ordered was delicious and the service was impeccable. Would Definitely stay here again with out a doubt. The only negative I could think of is I wish the restaurant stayed open later, other than that everything was great.

We were lucky enough to book the honeymoon suite for our honeymoon trip along the Garden Route. We were looked after so well during our stay. The ladies who run the front desk are just delightful and so, so friendly!! We adored them. The restaurant which is housed in the adjoining building is so, so good for breakfast, lunch or...

We enjoyed our stay at the river lodge! The rooms were tidy and serviced very well. The restaurant situated at the venue is perfect for breakfast and lunch and it is convenient that it closes at 16:00, as this does not influence the nights rest at the rooms area.

We booked the honeymoon room for 4 nights and the setting is really beautiful, with a full view of the Bitou river. The lodge is very close to the N2 and about 4 km from Plett therefore a good location to explore Plett and the Crags. The N2 however did not bother us at all. The room is separate from...
