“AMAZING!”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

My husband and I stayed here on our first night of honeymoon. From arrival to our departure we were treated so well. The ladies at reception were so friendly and full of smiles. Our room was all done up with flowers on the bed. It was such a beautiful room! The meals were delicious and we even had our own room to dine in as we were on honeymoon. There was a lovely fireplace while we chatted and waited for our food. Upon our return after dinner the room was lit and the heater and electric blankets were on. It was so nice and cozy. The next morning we went on a game drive. It was great...We saw so many animals and the game driver was very knowledgeable. We were very sad to leave the lodge after only one evening. We will definitely be back. Thank you to the staff at Baroness Lodge for your friendliness and thoughtfulness.

Room Tip: The room above the dinning room is stunning!

Worst game reserve ever. false advertising. Bats in ceiling. no sleep. Wild animals enclosed in sections. more like a big zoo. Very substandard. Food poor. reception full of ants on arrival. Charging 5 star rates for 1 star experience. Left earlier to home.

We arrived later than expected and after reception had closed. But we were greeted so warmly by Melody and Ruby and were made to feel very welcome. We had the lodge to ourselves for 2 nights and everything was tailored to suit us. The accommodation is old world colonial and fits the romantic setting perfectly. There are numerous fireplaces to relax by and awesome views from the deck and boma. Melody has been a truly exceptional host and nothing has been too much trouble. Game drive exceeded our expectations and kept the kids enthralled. We would definitely visit here again and would not hesitate recommending this to our friends and family.

Place was great, we went on a game drive, and saw loads of animals. Every room has a bed, a sofa set and a bathroom. I must say the lighting was a bit limited, the sofas was big chunky, old and has a bit of odour about them, the loo has no door. Pillows and bed was hard, even for my liking. The food was great. I would say manage your expectation going into this one, if you go for the overall experience of a game lodge, boom this is it at a reasonable price!

We made a last minute booking as the place we had booked in Plett was unsatisfactory, and were welcomed by Winnie. Our three rooms were lovely: spacious and comfortable, with free standing baths and huge beds. We were unable to fit in a game drive as time was short, so we were delighted to be given a discount on our room rate. Dinner and breakfast were pleasant and the atmosphere is relaxed and old fashioned. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful. We'd certainly come again. One small thing: no one could find a key for our room (6).

My husband and I visited South Africa from Australia in July/August/September last year and had the most pleasant and romantic experience of our 3 month holiday at the Lodge.

The young lady looking after us, Winnie, was incredibly hospitable, warm and helpful to us during our two night stay. We originally were only planning to stay one night, but extended on arrival as we felt so warmly welcomed, comfortable and relaxed there. Winnie organised with the chef to have our meals made dairy-free for us as requested and we were not disappointed with the quality of the food either, enjoying the cuisine very much!

We are planning a return visit ourselves in 2015 and will be returning to enjoy your hospitality once more.

we stayed on the reserve for four days back in november, we had an awesome time, even though the weather was atrocious we had a fantastic stay, the staff, the game drives, the food and the location where just what we wanted, we will be back sooner than later, you can also make your stay here a bit longer, as it is the perfect location for exploring this part of the garden route,would highly recommend it as your first game reserve, beautiful, paul and sharon de geir
