We stayed at Lilly Pond for two days during our journey along the coast. The staff was very hospitable, breakfast and dinner were excellent and we stayed in a nice and comfortable room. It is a great place to relax. We hope to come back one day!

The location, service, food was absolutely fantastic and the accommodation, well the attention to detail was unbelievable. When we were taken into our apartment I welled up with emotion, it was unbelievable. We stayed here for 2 nights but could have easily have stayed longer. If you stay here I really recommend the evening meals and breakfast.

Excellent location while travelling along the Garden Route. The accommodation was luxurious with large patio doors looking out on to the most beautiful lily pond and gardens. Staff was friendly and very helpful with suggestions of places to visit nearby. Loved the little touches offered, e.g. our car was cleaned early every morning.

Warm reception! Excellent room. With an amazing view of the lily ponds which give the Hotel its name. We had a peaceful stroll and then sat on a bench watching the lilies. The evening meal was very good. A vegetarian option for me. Breakfast was an excellent buffet with a freshly cooked hot meal of choice. We enjoyed our stay...

Only 20 minutes drive from Plettenberg Bay and yet a world away in the splendid isolation of Nature's Valley. We love returning to Lily Pond Lodge every year that we revisit the Garden Route. It's an exceptional Guest Lodge set in wonderfully tranquil surroundings. Maria and Tony (who manage the property) have put together a great team (special thanks to...
