Short and sweet as only agreeing with other posters. Location and rooms amazing, staff friendly and approachable, breakfast excellent and the evening meals!!!!!!!! Margret's food was stunning in both looks and taste and was a real highlight each night. Spent a couple of my days down at Natures valley beach doing the various walks and will no doubt draw me back again next year. PS Niels How is the German lady who broke her ankle?
Margaret and team were Excellent. The rooms, food and the accommodation were amazing. I’m planning to bring hubby with me soon. Thank you again for the extraordinary experience. My birthday was just a bliss
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Lily Pond Lodge. The hosts are extremely friendly and very helpful. Absolutely loved their property. So very tranquil and peaceful, you can’t help but relax. The food was exceptional as well as the staff. The surrounding area is also incredibly beautiful and we loved the hikes and the mountain biking. We would highly recommend stopping in at Lily Pond Lodge.
Our stay was absolutely amazing. The owners, Niels and Margaret supported by their super friendly and hospitable staff made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. The food at the restaurant was really excellent. The well designed lodge near Natures Valley has a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere with a well kept large garden with the highlight of three lilyponds. We will certainly stay there again when we are in that area.
Lillypond is a truly breath taking location. Both the grounds and the rooms were absolutely delightful but the grounds are definitely the star of the show. I spent a number of hours just sitting overlooking the lily pond and soaking it in. Set 10 minutes drive away from the bustle of Plettenberg Bay in December/January, it was the perfect jump off point for our many excursions into this spectacular part of the Garden route. Niels and Margret were wonderful hosts with Neils personally taking responsibility for my caffeine addition. The food was was beautifully prepared and presented in their intimate dining area with both indoor and outdoor options. Breakfast was served every morning on the front terrace by the very friendly and efficient staff with a wide array of options. All round, I couldn't recommend it strongly enough and we will definitely be back for another visit soon.…
Good location, lovely gardens and lilly ponds, warm welcome. Very clean. Rooms spacious and very big bathroom with big showers. Dinner was excellent . Good breakfast in a lovely outdoor area. Location near Birds of Eden
The design of the hotel is great. View is exceptional. Quiet and relaxing place, with high quality staff and very friendly owners. Nice food and music at the restaurant . Definitely place to stay and highly recommended.
Surrounded by nature only, you can recreate in a wonderful lodge with the highlight of three lilyponds and a huge, well-kept garden. Thanks to Margret, Niels and their staff for a (too) short, but very pleasant stay near Tsitsikamma and Storm‘s River. For a daytrip to Storm‘s River you will be sure our first choice again!
We had the most wonderful time at Lily Pond Country Lodge! We came to spend 4 days there and decided to extend after the first night. The whole lodge is beautiful, in a great location, in the middle of the countryside, but still close to do lots of things (hiking, canoeing, zipline tours, horse riding, see animals, beach, Plettenberg,...). But it is also so beautiful there in the lodge that you just want to stay in the lodge! Niels and Margret are such attentive and great hosts, we immediately felt super comfortable. The breakfasts and dinners there are fabulous and we can only recommend everyone to experience the dinners there - we were already looking forward to it in the morning. Charming all round, we will definitely be back!
Wonderful stay in a beautiful location! Friendly and attentive staff. The owners Niels and Margret went out of their way to make us feel at home. They were recommended to us by family members and we can understand why. Thank you!
