Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Property's Favourite Review
We spent two nights at Bayside Lodge and wished we had booked for longer. It is a beautiful place in a lovely neighbourhood, and a short walk to the beach. We stayed in the Honeysuckle room which was a nice size, with a big comfy bed and everything we needed. The hosts, Adrienne and Bernie, are a really lovely couple, they have added many little touches that make this a most welcoming B&B. They are the perfect hosts, and spent time sharing useful tips on places to visit, great hikes and local eateries. Bernie even kindly booked some golf for us. Being able to get our laundry done was an added bonus. We will definitely recommend Bayside to our friends and family and look forward to a return visit soon.

We had a great stay at the Bayside Lodge. The room and the breakfast were perfect. But what our stay made really memorable were the hosts, with their personal welcome, great tips and advice and nice chats.

The bayside lodge is the most beautiful lodge. Everything was perfect. No wish remained unfulfilled. Bernie and Adrienne are warm hosts who know exactly what guests expect and treat their guests like dear friends. We had a varied, delicious breakfast, wonderful rooms with every comfort including tea and coffee, beach towels, sun and mosquito protection, beach equipment and adapters for our German electrics. Nothing was missing. The excursion tips and tips for restaurants with everything that needs to be taken into account were particularly valuable. The hosts were always available to us. We would like to come again. This lodge is an absolute must for Plettenberg bay. A big, big thank you to Adrienne and Bernie.

Fantastic breakfast. Both Adrienne and her husband gave very usefull advice about the area of Plettenburg Bay. Very clean and well kept room. English people would be jealous about their garden. The guests can feel that the hotel is run with love.

Lovely hosts - friendly and exceptionally helpful. Great location, a short walk from the beach and several lovely restaurants. Ideally located for days out on the garden route. A very good breakfast and comfortable room complete the picture. Highly recommended.

We couldn't fault our visit. From the wonderful hosts & their wealth of local knowledge that enhanced our trip. The proximity to the beach Bayside lodge also provided a raft of beach essentials from towels umbrellas picnic basket and boogie boards of course one can use the pool at the bottom of the garden The communal space was very comfortable with an honesty box for the bar. The breakfast was served with a smile and offering home made pancakes and breads as well as cooked options Our cottage apartment was perfect with it's private seating and Braii area Local restaurants were a short walk Happy to highly recommend Bayside Lodge Thank you Adrienne, Bernie & the team Our stay wasn't long enough Hugs Helen & Jim Scotland
