Beautiful location on the river, comfortable and warm sleep on the king bed, lovely restaurant, friendly staff at the lodge and restaurant. Located outside of Plett itself so was very peaceful. Overall a great stay.

From arrival to check-out, the friendliness and service provided by the staff was excellent. Any request was promptly actioned with a smile. The room was perfect for our needs, excellent privacy and the bed was super comfortable. We will definitely be returning for a repeat experience.

Great hotel Only negatives where no a/conditioning- it was so hot and the fans provided did nothing to help other than make a noise The WiFi was no good ( I connected but so slow and therefore of no use) otherwise perfect. Staff very friendly and rooms where nice and clean. I would stay again in cooler months

Very nice place to stay at for some peace and quietness. Rooms are very clean and spacious. Town is close enough for food and restaurant on site. The room didn't have an aircon, which wasn't a problem for the trip, but might be in summer. Over all the people are very freindly and professional, thanks.

Plett River Lodge's location is perfect for exploration of the multitude of Garden Route attractions, Vinyards of the Crags and there are numerous eateries in close proximity. The tranquil setting of the lodge and my room was perfect for reflection and to simply enjoy the river and mountain views.

Worst accomodation we had in South Africa. Nearly everything is missing, no WIFI, no Safe, no Minibar, and a lot more was missing. No breakfast was available. No chance to buy anything to drink (water, Coke, Wine...) at this place The rooms were old and not renovated.

This place is a little odd. Not sure what the relationship is to the restaurant there. We stayed there New Year’s Eve and hotel staff said the restaurant would be open for breakfast the next day but it wasn’t. No safe in the room. Property is gate locked at nite with no staff on grounds. Not much in the way of soap or shampoo provided. Bathtub and shower were not in bathroom, but outside the bathroom. It is located on a wetland so there are lots of mosquitos around. No screens on windows and no way to get fresh air unless the windows are open. Closed windows means the rooms heat up. Shower door fell off in other bedroom we booked for family. Staff were friendly. I’m not too keen on properties built in a wetland but there was nothing else available. Thought it was a bit over priced for what we got.
