We had a great time, fantastic views, rooms with high end fittings but the best thing were Rita and Frank. Rita was a hive of local information, where to eat and where to go. Rita is a fantastic host and definitely make the Lodge a very special place, will definately be going back again and will recommend to all our... More

This guest house is very good and Rita makes the place amazing. The house is new and rooms are very modern and clean, all seemingly with a great view. Our room was a little small for two people. apparently a great location for whale watching, we would love to return here during the whale season. great walk from the house... More

We found this place by pure luck! My boyfriend and I were due to stay in Cape town at a Hilton hotel the night we stayed at Sea star lodge, but we're very disappointed with the hotel, so we needed to book somewhere else for that night. We found the Sea star lodge on booking.com and were hoping the pictures... More

You could not wish for a better hostess! Friendly and very knowledgeable about the area. Great location with views across the bay towards Hermanus. Spacious rooms and a delicious breakfast. Ask her about her friend Neil and his restaurant in his home

We had initially booked the smallest room for one night but upon arrival we asked if we could stay two nights as we wanted to do shark diving and kayaking with whales, see Hermanus and spend some time at the beach... The manager Rita was very welcoming and friendly. She could not offer us the small room for another night... More

We stayed for 2 nights in the Master suite which not only has an amazing bathroom, but better still, amazing views over the Bay, and yes you can see Whales from there if you are lucky. Rita & Frank (managers) go above and beyond the call of duty to make sure that you have everything you require to make your... More

We really enjoyed our stay (we were only able to stay 1 night) at this lodge. It's neat, modern & clean, but without a doubt, it's greatest asset is the excellent service from the manager (Rita) - So very accomodating of our requirements. The view from the lodge is amazing - An ideal spot to relax.

Another couple and we spent one night at this "lodge"/B&B. We were greeted by Rita and Frank who helped us with our luggage, provided us with tea and coffee, made our reservations for dinner, and pointed out the whales in the bay. The views from the sitting and dining areas are stupendous, and it was an easy walk along to... More

Very stylish B&B with great views from the rooms. Rita and Frank are extremely customer focussed and you must definitely discuss any plans you want to make with them so that you can be told of the hidden gems in the area. The room is great with a bath and a Nespresso machine in the room. I would recommend the... More
