About Bitou River Lodge B&B

Watch the birds on the river from your bed; explore the wetlands by canoe; relax in a hammock at the pool or swim at one of Plettenberg Bay's nearby beaches. Enjoy a traditional country breakfast and then go for a short walk along the eco-trail and keep a lookout for otters and birds.

Each spacious, tranquil room has its own entrance and patio with garden and river views; an overhead fan and under-floor heating; a bar fridge and TV with M-Net. The golf courses, game drive, horse-riding, beaches, restaurants and shops just a 10 minute drive away. Monkeys, birds, elephants and wild cats can be visited at the Crags, fifteen minutes away.

Not feeling that energetic. Enjoy the birds in our large indigenous garden; wander along the Eco-Stroll and learn the names of the trees; cook your own supper on a fire next to the river; count the stars.

          One of the best stays ever at any establishment, amazing breakfasts. Sue is an excellent hostess!

          This was the best B & B of our trip. Everything about it was wonderful - the tastefully furnished bedrooms with ultra-comfortable beds, the location by the river with all the birds, the splendid breakfasts with fresh baking every morning, the friendly and helpful host family. We would recommend anyone we know to stay there for as long as possible!

          This really was a farm--the rooms are lined up as if in a stable, one by one. But the rooms are nice, and the bed was very comfortable. You are pretty much left on your own, except for breakfast, which is very good (and a lot). Sue always had a home made specialty bread included with all the other usual stuff served buffet style (except of course the made to order egg dish). We were very comfortable, and it was only a short drive to the downtown area and golf courses and restaurants. You do get the country feeling, and the bird life is plentiful and enjoyable to watch. Kayak paddles are...

          This is the best accommodation we had in South Africa, the breakfasts were excellent everthing you could possibly want you could have, fresh baked scones & pancakes to die for. With the river right there & with canoes to use plus the walks & Braai on your own front porch no need to go out in your car. The underfloor heating works very well. Any local information needed was provided by our hosts & eating out was a pleasure so was the exploring. Would make a point of returning on any future visit to South Africa.
