“Amazing Guesthouse”
Reviewed 9 February 2013

Stayed in Christiana Lodge as part of our honeymoon but could have stayed here for the full two weeks. Architecture of building is amazing, very modern but still very warm and comfortable. The owner is a very warm and welcoming and offers some excellent advise on the area, restaurants etc

Rooms are bright and very comfortable

The breakfast was probably the best we ate anywhere on the garden route, freshly made, really delicious.

Cant recommend Christiana enough, we recommend it to our friends who stayed here recently in the honeymoon Suite and are still talking about it!

We were looking for something special for a short breakaway. Christiana Lodge exceeded our expectations. The location is perfect with beautiful and peaceful surroundings and very close to Robberg Beach. The rooms are spacious, attractive and with many extras that one does not normally find in similar guesthouses. Our balcony offered us a lovely view over Robberg, as well as over the sea. The lodge offer safe undercover parking, as well as a sparkling pool.

Breakfast was a highlight with the mos delicious fruit pancakes and omelettes.

Christa, Marie and the rest of the staff were always available and prepared to assist us.

Christiana Lodge is a very professional and friendly establishment

Room Tip: Room 4 offers a beautiful view over the sea and Robberg

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!

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.

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.
