The place was lovely... We stayed in the four poster bed room, which has quite a huge and high bed, which requires a bit of a climb. We enjoyed our stay, just a pity that we had no hot water on our last morning there.

We stayed here for two nights. One night we stayed in the honeymoon suite and the other night we stayed in the bottom room. The honeymoon suite is beautiful and spacious and has a lovely balcony and freestanding bath. Also twin showers! Very tastefully decorated. We were quite disappointed with the bottom room we moved to as it was quite... More

Located near Robberg and at a 5 minute drive from the town center, Whale Rock Guest House is a great pick. Lelani owns the place and she offers this nice B&B with two spacious rooms. Our room was very comfortable, well furnitured and spotless. The shared living area has a dining table, tv/radio, couches and a balcony with a table... More

What a wonderful week we (with my best friends from the UK) spent at Whale Rock Guest House. We couldn't have wished for more - the welcome we received - even though Lelani and her family were away in Cape Town - was so muchmore than we expected. The rooms are beautiful, spacious and I had the privilege of staying... More

My husband and myself from the UK and our best friend from Johannesburg, spent a perfect week at Whale Rock House in October 2013 splendidly looked after by Lelani van Rooyen, her family and staff, who welcomed us like friends, not strangers. The accommodation was second to none, the breakfasts delicious and the information about places of interest in the... More

On our second trip to ZA (Plett) we spent another couple of nights at the lovely whale rock lodge. We really most appreciated the clean, beautifully decorated and tasteful room, the nice and healthy prepared breakfast on the balcony, with discreet music on the background. If you get up early in the morning you can soak up a terrific sunrise... More

My husband and I stayed at Whale Rock for 2 nights in mid Feb 2013 and had such a lovely time there! We truly were hosted like we were known by the couple who own the place. We had ultimate comfort and loved staying in the Honeymoon suite. From the shower to the bed to the guest lounge, everything was... More
