We stayed for three nights at this hotel. The room had a delightful view over the lily pond, but there was no separate bathroom- only a half wall between the bedroom-not ideal. The breakfasts and the dinners were enjoyable -but there was no choice (other than a vegetarian option) and it was a long way from any other restaurants. The... More

We enjoyed our stay at Lily Pond despite the weather (mist and rain). it is a good location. The food is very good. The room was pleasant but had a few design flaws.

This is a great setting for romantic break but not much to do around there the hotel itself is lovely with a lovely pond and the staff are very helpful but we got bored The nearest town is about 20 miles away so be prepared to drive

On the old N2 road between Plettenberg Bay, the uplands of the The Crags, and the tiny resort of Nature's Valley lies a beautiiful "colonial-style" country hotel called Lily Pond. Gracious, gorgeously appointed, and with a cuisine fit for a Persian satrap, the Lily Pond is for those who enjoy Old Skool Grace and Charm.

One of our best places we have stayed in the last 7 years here in South Africa. If you can make it possible try to get one or more nights here in Natures Valley.

We stayed at Lily Pond Lodge for a couple of nights during our recent honeymoon journey along the Garden Route in South Africa. The staff are all very friendly and helpful; the rooms look out onto the lily pond and are grouped around the main building so you close to the outdoor pool and restaurant. Wherever we ate in South... More

We just came for a day visit and the induction lunch of the incoming Rotary Club Plettenberg Bay President. What a stunning setting and the peace and positive energy to fill up your flat batteries. Would have loved to stay over but had to work the same day still.

This is primarily listed as a hotel but we weren't staying here and still managed to eat here two out of three nights of our stay in the area. The hotel diners do, of course, get the first chance to eat here but the management does take bookings from non-residents. The fact that we ate here twice in three nights... More
