“Beautiful rooms”
Reviewed 15 January 2013

We stayed in the Christiana Lodge in Plettenberg Bay for 5 nights and had a wonderful time (can't beat walking along the beach on your first day and seeing a whale jumping out the water right next to you!!). The building and rooms are absolutely beautiful, immaculately clean and well stocked. Breakfast was lovely and freshly cooked in front of you. Admittedly is it right at the end of the beach so a taxi is required to get to the town, but if you time it right, a lovely walk along the beach as the sun goes down builds up a well rewarded appetite. The staff were extremely friendly and smiley, especially (we think Michael but our memories aren't the best!) who greeted us in the car park on arrival home each night.

At Christiana Lodge you'll feel as though you've been received into your own home. Hostess Christa really understands the concept of hospitality - of making the guest feel truly at home. This is a rare gift, and the reason why I will always return to Christiana Lodge when next in the area.
Our room was spacious and tranquil and the attention to detail was impressive, especially the very practical and efficient bedside lamps - I could actually read my book!

We just had a fabulous week long stay at this Guest Lodge and highly recommend it. The atmosphere was inviting, the staff were friendly and went the extra mile. Rooms impeccable and the food was delicious!

The only place to stay in Plettenberg bay. We haven't stayed anywhere else but with Christiana Lodge there is no need. Exceptionally friendly and informative welcome. Marie & Christa are more than happy to make recommendations (and reservations) for eating in and around town - at the best places, of course. Also, they are more than happy to make calls on one's behalf for actives in the area.
The rooms are light and airy, the bed very, very comfortable, and great views over the the wetlands. Rooms have a balcony to enjoy the sunsets, and are equipped with fridges to keep your drinks cool for a sundowners (optional in large comfortable wicker chairs). The rooms are spacious and clean, with a safe and ample space for baggage and clothing.
The bathroom is clean and modern with his and her's sinks and mirrors, deep bathtub, separate shower and underfloor heating.
Private (secure) parking is included in the price as is wireless internet, and so is access to the beautiful private Solar Beach.
The breakfast is excellent and caters for all, the pancakes with stewed apple and yoghurt are very tasty indeed.
We hope to be back. A beautiful house run by great people.

Thank you so much for this review. A lot of time was spent planning the detail in each room and I can't ask for much more than such appreciation from one of our guests. Kind regards. Christa.

After following detailed directions we found this very comfortable lodge, our home for 2 nights. Our room was very airy and creatively decorated. We had a lovely view and plenty of space to relax. We appreciated the hot water bottle warming our bed on a chilly night. The lounge area was delightful with the views and the very tasteful furnishings. Christa gave us a very friendly welcome and was a wealth of information about activities and restaurant recommendations. Breakfast was delicious and included an especially yummy locally produced museli. It was also great to have pancakes one morning. Christa also gave us some great advice about our onward route to Hermanus which was terrific. Thankyou for a great stay, Christa, and for the wine on our arrival.

We stayed here for our honeymoon and we were very impressed. The rooms are bright, airy and very comfortable. The decor is simple but stylish and you can tell a lot of thought has gone into the place. We stayed in a room overlooking the wetlands an while it was not a sea view like other places we had stayed, it didn't detract from the room - in fact we loved hearing the frogs croacking wildly at night.

The staff were all extremely friendly and we got some amazing recommendations from Christa about where to see and eat. We had some amazing meals out both for lunch and dinner based on where she suggested.

While you are not right in the town centre (you need a car/taxi to get in) you are a short walk from the beach and we easily walked into the town one morning. Be sure to check the tide times though as we nearly got caught out.

Christa obviously knows the area like the back of her hand - make the most of this knowledge or you may miss something. She also booked us a taxi driver (Yohan) who took us out every night. He was charming and also able to recommend places to go out.

The breakfast was also lovely - filling but not huge. If you like fresh fruit and juice, you're onto a winner.

We would recommend this place to others, we had a very comfortable stay and touches like the complimentary champagne really enhanced our holiday.

A great experience. This guest house is well located for anyone with their own vehicle. Easy walk to the beach and the estuary. The accommodation is very spacious (with a lovely sitting area and balcony) and the modern, paired back decor and styling is very 'modern South African' and it appealed to us. The place was spotless, the bathroom goodies and the quality tea and coffee in the room was appreciated. good quality linen, beds - comfortably firm. Christa and her team were lovely. Christa's suggestions to help us explore the best of the region made our trip feel very special. She was there for advice if you needed her thoughts and left you alone if you didn't. Breakfast was in a beautiful room, again spacious and extremely comfortable. The breakfast super was fresh and quite adaptable to anyones needs. Guests are treated to some really good quality local produce as well. You left feeling satisfied and healthy.

Room Tip: the upstairs rooms had a view but the lower levels are still elevated and have lovely aspects.
