“Best stay ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2013

We chose a chalet, everything you'd want - great bed, actual ground coffee, wine glasses (obvs needed), double shower, a view. And dinner is highly recommended - great food and service and no problem with us bringing our own wine. We were treated to the best lightning storm too, obviously not something on the menu but what a great vantage point to watch it!

We had a terrific stop over on garden route. It was our 25 wedding anniversary so we wanted something special and we got it. Luxury room honeymoon suit with spa overlooking ravine and sea. Stunning views and excellent hospitality by lodge team.

I took my wife for a night at the Fernery for her 30th birthday. What a wonderful location, amazing bed, great views, great food and great service. Only negatives were no wifi, a bit dated decor in lodge (80's pine) and 7km dirt road...not great for my car, need a bakkie...

Thank you David A for the positive feedback.

We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us...we take great pride in our surroundings, facilities and staff and it is nice to know guests enjoy them as much as we do.

I am happy you were able to take advantage of South Africans favorite past time we like to call a "braai" (BBQ), in South Africa braai's are associated with fun, sun and good memories and it sounds like you had all three.

We hope to see you again soon. Until next time!
Kind regards and best wishes from the entire Fernery Lodge & Chalets team

My husband and I spend our honeymoon here. There was an error with our booking and the staff was not aware that we were on honeymoon. This could have been a huge disappointment but they were quick to rectify their error. The lodge is beautiful and one just wants to sit on the deck from morning to noon to night. Watching the birds, whales and waves whilst sipping wine with the sound of the waterfall in the background. We had the opportunity to have our own private braai at the pool and that was awesome. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. We also had a picnic at one of the picnic spots. Again the food was awesome. You can walk or cycle on the farm, there is even a couple of jacuzzis to choose from. The room is spacious and has everything you need. The bathrooms are gorgeous with a door that opens completely and you can have your bath "in the forest". We can recommend The Fernery

We spent three nights at the Fernery and it was probably the highlight of our recent trip! AN amazing location with fabulous views from the chalet and restaurant. Great to have a fire in the room when the temperature was cool. The staff were wonderful and very helpful. Food excellent with good high quality imaginative meals. Definitely recommended.

We loved the place; accommodation was excellent as well as the food and staff. A lovely ambience. The view from the rooms and balconies was awe inspiring. The lounge area was lovely. We will certainly be back.
