Tranquil accommodation in lovely setting”

Fernery Lodge is spectacularly located overlooking a gorge. Our chalet was perched on stilts on the gorge edge and appeared completely isolated from our neighbours. A totally relaxing location. Staff were very attentive, the food was excellent and the lodge grounds are beautiful. The restaurant has spectacular views across the gorge and to the sea. Dinner and breakfast were both excellent. There are a number of walking trail options from the lodge. The short trail in the grounds is excellent. However a longer option that takes you through mainly pine plantation we found boring. Well worth the 10km drive in and excellent value for money.

Amazingly picturesque!”

We really enjoyed our stay at The Fernery Lodge. We had the Owners Suite and it was quite indulgent! After almost a month of staying in some very basic accomodations, we knew this was going to be a bit more opulent - and it didn't disappoint! The views are amazing, and the suite consisted of two levels, the entrance level was bedroom and bathroom, with beautiful, strong shower, and lovely bathtub. The downstairs was a living room and almost fully self catering kitchen. I only say almost as there was a little bit of a lack in plates and cutlery (but this was really only a minor inconvenience for us). The living room also had a lovely fireplace. Both levels led out to a beautiful balcony where you could hear birds singing, and the wonderfully soothing sounds of the waterfalls and ocean. We used the braai for two of the three nights, and ate at the restaurant on the other night. The staff were delightful, and always willing to help out with any questions we had! We loved it!

Hidden gem”

My bf and I loved this lodge. It is a bit hidden so finding it after 10 pm due to a delayed flight and 2 hour drive from port Elizabeth wasn't a piece of cake. Gps doesn't locate it. Overall we loved the whole feel of the lodge, it felt very quaint, providing us with a magnificent view of the Indian Ocean. We opted for the owners suite as oppose to the chalet, given we already stayed in chalets for our safari. The room was very clean and spacious, we had an ensuite to the living room, fire place with a kitchen. We had open balcony as well. We stayed two nights October 6 to 8th so weather was still chilly at night. Breakfast was simple but good and dinner was satisfying! The lodge definitely met our expectations, we went for a jog around the lodge vast grounds and even tested out the early evening jaccuzi overlooking the mountains. Location wise, it takes around 20 to 25 mins to get to storms river by car.

A beautiful setting”

You have to drive 6-7 km on bumpy dirt roads to get to The Fernery but it is so worth it. Everything is designed to maximize views of the beautiful gorge, waterfalls and ocean, as well as the surrounding forests. They've also built little lookout points at various points so you can walk around and take in the views from a variety of vantage points. The rooms and cabins are beautifully appointed and the staff is so gracious and accommodating, it was just a pleasure. A wonderful place to just relax, enjoying the birds, butterflies, outdoor jacuzzi, games room etc. but it's also a 45 minute drive to hikes and water activities in Tsitsikamma. Highly recommended.

The lodge and some of the rooms have the most remarkable view over a gorge with a series of small waterfalls running down to the sea. The rooms are extremely comfortable and generously appointed.

Wonderful stay”

Breathtaking location and view, beautiful hotel, wonderful service

We had a wonderful time from the moment we arrived: we were first greeted with tea, then visited the resort with its beautiful view of the gorge, and taken to our cottage where the attendant lit a fire for us. Then we had a very nice 3-course dinner in the lodge, and fell asleep to the sound of the rushing river and glow of our fireplace in our wonderfully comfortable bed. The next morning started with a delicious breakfast in the beautiful lodge. Unfortunately we had to leave at that point.

Fab getaway”

Location! The remote setting overlooking a gorge with a river and waterfall leading to the sea was beautiful. Staff were very attentative. Facilities were varied and well maintained.Pools, jacuzzi etc

Relaxing. Staff gave us a tour of the lodge when we arrived. Room service was on time. Staff even made a fire for us in our chalet. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was varied and freshly made, tastey too.

Amazing location - wish we could have been there longer”

The drive there was a little ominous, but as soon as we arrived we were greeted so kindly and taken to our amazing chalet. It was so big we couldn’t believe it. The views at dinner and from the bar were stunning and we never wanted to leave. The food was excellent and very good value. Breakfast was nice and low key. We didn’t have any time to do anything around the hotel the next day so left wanting more which is always good. Would highly recommend!

Wonderful stay”

Breathtaking location and view, beautiful hotel, wonderful service

We had a wonderful time from the moment we arrived: we were first greeted with tea, then visited the resort with its beautiful view of the gorge, and taken to our cottage where the attendant lit a fire for us. Then we had a very nice 3-course dinner in the lodge, and fell asleep to the sound of the rushing river and glow of our fireplace in our wonderfully comfortable bed. The next morning started with a delicious breakfast in the beautiful lodge. Unfortunately we had to leave at that point.
