We stayed at Mercier room, wonderfull views, and close to the Beach. The room service was very good, breakfast delicious. There was a problem with the electricity ( programed short cuts ) at that time in Plettenberg bay, but the manager provided emergency lights everywhere, to be more confortable and safe. She was very kind and helpfull. The property is a non smoking place,even in the exterior balconies or outside rooftop,if you want to smoke a cigarrete you have to do it in the street!! I think that at least in one place of the property it should be allowed to smoke for the confort and safety of the guest. They provided us beach umbrellas, chairs and beach towells. The overall stay was fantastic and I definitely recomend it , but I think it is a little bit overpriced.

Thank you for taking the time to give us such a good honest review. It was a pleasure to be your hosts and nice to hear that you had a fantastic stay. We hear your comments about the smoking, but we are totally a non-smoking establishment, and we have to consider all our guests who choose to stay because of this rule. Your understanding and co-operation during your stay at Lodge on the Bay was highly appreciated, and we hope to see you at our lodge again in the future.

We recently stayed in the Aalto suite for 5 nights. Everywhere we had stayed prior to this on our road trip had been wonderful and I wondered could it live up to my high expectations. It was even better than we could have hoped for. The suite was stunning - huge, full of light, equipped with everything you could wish for.The fridge was stocked with milk and fruit and there was loads of cookies, coffees and teas. Colleen the manageress could not have been more welcoming and helpful and John the chef made us some amazing treats for breakfast and made us a delicious packed lunch to take with us when we left. I cannot reccomend the Loidge highly enough - we absolutely loved staying there and hope to come back as soon as possible

The most welcoming owner, who could do enough for us, add to that the flawless room, facilities, breakfast and location just off the most beautiful beach this is somewhere to return to! We stayed the previous night at another well known and much rated hotel but for us there was no comparison, we’ll be back !

From the minute you walk into the Lodge On The Bay the calm ambience washes away all the weariness of travel. The views of the ocean are absolutely stunning from dawn to dusk and we were lucky enough to experience the sight of dolphins playing in the surf on more than one occasion. Though quiet and unobtrusive the staff are helpful and extremely professional. Would highly recommend to anyone, however, for international travellers looking to experience the beauty of Plettenberg Bay it is a must. Cannot wait to return.
