We had THE nicest stay at Lily Pond Country Lodge. The food, the rooms, the style, the whole atmosphere and the kindness we experienced made our time so special. It really was the nicest lodge we stayed at during our three week travel through South Africa. Highly recommend!

LOVELY LOCATION< FIRST CLASS ACCOMMODATION
We loved this place. We enjoyed everything about it, from the quality accommodation to the delicious food and lovely gardens. We had a large, very pleasant room overlooking the lily pond, with comfortable bed, great shower and excellent breakfast. Super hosts, super place to stay.

A PLACE LIKE IN PARADISE
Lily Pond Country Lodge was the most beautiful place on our two weeks travel on the Garden Route in South Africa. Unfortunately, we spent only two Nights at this lodge. The service and the meals at breakfast and at dinner were excellent. A carafe with fresh orange juice on the table and so many fresh fruits for breakfast. The location is very beautiful, especially the lake with the water lily – a wonderful view while having a glass of wine. The room service opens the bed for night, placed a little chocolate and the car was cleaned every morning.
The people are always very friendly and you are welcome all the time. We felt like being in the honeymoon
You should visit definitely the Tsitsikamma National Park near Stormsriver and also Robberg Nature Reserve near Plettenberg Bay which are not too far away. The nature you can expe-rience at these places is simply amazing. But also Nature´s Valley nearby is a wonderful place whith an incredibly beach – very wide and so less people. Our journey has passed now almost one year ago but we are still keeping this experiences in mind and we will come back to South Africa once again.
NOT TO BE MISSED! THIS PLACE IS HEAVEN ON EARTH !!
This is by far THE BEST PLACE we've been to in SA and in general. The level of service is so high you won't believe it. The room is beautiful with gorgeous view to the pond. It was top clean with premium bedding. The in house restaurant is amazing. Food was delicious and service was perfect. The owners spend time with each guest every day asking them how was their day and what are their plans for the next days. Breakfast at tge garden was also delicious and made for order. Our car has been washed every day! To sum up: GO THERE! Great value for money and you'll have the best stay for sure! We spent 2 nights there and we were very sad to leave.
A WONDERFUL PLACE TO STAY
When we arrived at Lily Pond we immediately felt a feeling of calm. The lodge is in a beautiful setting. Our room, which the Lily Pond had upgraded was lovely, very large, peaceful, private and with lovely views. All the staff we spoke to had worked at the Lily Pond since it opened or very soon after which is a credit to the owners and it was obvious in the service they provided. A slight negative for the Lily Pond is that it is a little remote and it's a little too far to drive anywhere else to eat in the evening. Because of this we decided to eat at the Lily Pond each night and very quickly agreed that we were glad it was to far away from anywhere else as the 4 course meals we had were fantastic, superbly presented and high quality. Our only regret was that we had booked only a 3 night stay.

A LOVELY STOP IN NATURES VALLEY
We were delighted to stay here on our trip around the Western Cape. We were able to do some walking around Natures Valley which is quieter than Storms River but this must also be visited. The reception and help were first class as was the food in their restaurant.

OUTSTANDING SERVICE, BEAUTIFUL ROOM AND A GREAT TEAM.
We were delighted with our stay at Lily Pond. The Proprietors were so welcoming and interested in all of their guests. The room provided was of a very high quality with great space. We had dinner on one night of our stay and the food was fantastic.

THE BEST STAY WE FOUND ON OUR GARDEN ROUTE TRIP.
Wished to have booked more than just one night, to have a chance to get deeper into the Lily Pond mode. Ambiance, interior, kitchen, hosts - everything top class. We will come again, but then longer....

We spent two nights here to chill out after a hectic but enjoyable few days on safari. It was much better than our wildest dreams and the setting, accommodation, welcome and culinary delights were above the norm.We would happily recommend Lily Pond to anyone.

We were really impressed with the lodge. The surroundings and the facilities were all faultless. The staff were friendly and incredibly helfpul, helping us to plan our days activities. We felt thoroughly pampered throughout our stay. Dinner was well prepared and served in lovely surroundings starting with drinks in front of a roaring fire.A really nice touch was on chilly evenings to find a hot water bottle warming the bed.Cannot recommend it highly enough - and such good value.

This place is just stunning. The decor and outside areas are beautiful. Our room was huge, comfortable with a stunning bathroom. It had everything we needed and more. The staff were amazing. I wish we could have stayed longer

One of the most beautiful areas in South Africa. So relaxing and tranquil. Great location. Very close to natures valley beach. Dinner was excellent and breakfast every morning was just as great. Staff are extremely helpful to make your stay great!
