“Lovely weekend”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

I enjoyed my stay at Abalone Lodge, from the beautiful warm and cosy room, to the lovely spa and gym. It was a weekend well spent. The staff were all very friendly and made sure that we enjoyed every bit of our getaway.

We really had a wonderful stay. We were upgraded to a better room which was very nice. Garden views and room large with very nice bathroom. The breakfast, with freshly baked croissants, was just out of this world. The interior is beautifully done.

I highly recommend Abalone Lodge - I cannot think of anything negative to say. The staff, decor, location, food and ambience were all of the highest standard. Even our 3 and 5 year old girls were treated like royalty with special touches like lunch bags for our long walk and even a mini manicure! Thank you!

We spent a lovely weekend at the Abalone Lodge a month ago. what a pleasure when we arrived to be offered either a glass of Sherry, Coffee and (gorgeous) Cheese Cake in the reception Lounge overlooking the garden and spectacular views of the sea. The staff were friendly and helpful. Our accommodation was excellent, the only down side was the DSTV Channels where not working. We had friends staying at their Holiday Home and we were able to invite them to join us for breakfast which they so enjoyed. so we will most definately visit Abalone Guest Lodge again.

Abalone has a wonderful position in Hermanus, in that you can sit on the patio and see the shrubs and the sea by the cliff path. There is a gate which allows one to step directly onto the cliff path which is an awesome walk right next to the waves smashing against the boulders. Staff were the best we've ever dealt with- so helpful and friendly. Breakfast was great.perfectly poached eggs :) Rooms were spacious,lovely comfortable beds. Great bathroom-strong shower-loved that.Lovely outside pool. Very chilled,like home from home,you can relax in the main lounge with a glass of sherry.Negative things i can bring up- we had the end room closest to the main road, so one does tend to hear the traffic going by early in the morning-such a pity!! So get a front sea view room if you can. We went on a Daddy's Deal - so it was real value for money - don't think I would pay normal price for a garden view room. Also - they had a dstv magazine, but we could only get sabc123- clearly no reason to watch then!! Would go back on another DDeal. :)

Thank-you for a perfect long weekend at Abalone. My husband surprised me for my birthday (which was in April) and it was well worth the wait. The room was beautiful, breakfast yummy and the staff friendly. The spa was an added bonus and I really enjoyed my treatments. We will definately be back. Only negative was that the DSTV wasn`t working.

Attentive and friendly staff. Nice touch was being called to ask if we'd make breakfast way after the kitchen had closed.

Excellent sea views from the lounge with easy access trail leading to the sea.
