A really warm welcome from the hosts started the stay off really well. A beautiful lodge in gardens any British gardener would have been proud of. We stayed in a cottage in the grounds near the pool, which was lovely. An open plan lounge/kitchen was very comfortable with a separate bedroom with bathroom ensuite was up a few stairs, very...

INNKEEPER’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

Visited Plettenberg Bay in late February and we really really got very lucky indeed. Adrienne and Bernie are superb hosts. Assisting organising trips, options and must do's/see's. Way over and above the call of duty. I cannot recommend Bayside Lodge enough. Simply wonderful and thank you again Adrienne and Bernie. We will return.

Everything was perfect extremely friendly, clean and in a perfect location. We were travelling and were only there for one night but really wish we could have stayed longer. The Bayside is definitely one that we would recommend and we will definitely revisit.

We stayed 2 nights in Bayside lodge during our South Africa round tour end of February 2017 and it was absolute magnificent! We can say that it was the best arranged lodge we've had an overnight stay. Adrienne and Bernie did their very best to help with finding our way in Plettenberg Bay, what a wonderful location. Their perfectionism, cleanliness...

The guest house has an attractive and comfortable lounge and dining room. Our room was rather cramped, with little space for baggage, but a comfortable bed. The hosts were very friendly and helpful with information about the area and in booking meals. There is a small pool in the lower part of the compact garden

Thank you for this review - we wish we knew which suite you stayed in so that we could address the baggage storage concern. Our guests enjoy the pool when it gets too hot on the beach as it is in a quiet shady private section of the garden. We are pleased you found our local information useful.

There is absolutely nothing bad to be said about Bayside Lodge. From the warm welcome by Bernie and Adrienne, to the fond goodbye, it was perfect. We arrived after a longish, but very warm drive (problems with car a/c) to be greeted by Bernie and Adrienne with a cold towel and a refreshing apple juice. Before being shown to our...

Adrienne and Bernie are great hosts and very helpful in organizing everything a "tourist" needs. The location is quiet and yet central. The breakfast is fantastic. The recommendations for restaurants completely met our expectations.

Bayside lodge very nice relaxing time had there. Would have liked to stay longer but they were already booked for us to extend our time there. The proprietors were very helpful, knowledgeable about other places we were on route to. They even printed our return flight tickets and wouldn't take any money for printing this- how nice was this!

Great room, great breakfasts, and such great hosts who just can`t do enough for their guests, what more could you ask for? We would most certainly recommend this accommodation to anyone wishing to spend a few days in Plettenberg
