Whale Rock Luxury Lodge is considered to be one of the most beautiful buildings in Hermanus and had a complete internal makeover into a warm contemporary style in 2014. In December 2017, a new more contemporary Villa was added to the property. Situated across the road from the New Harbour and the start of the cliff path, it is but a 3 minute walk down to the edge of the cliff and a 5 minute drive to the centre of town. The Lodge & Villa now have 17 beautifully decorated en suite Rooms & Suites, lovely gardens, a koi pond and 2 pools of which one is probably one of the the largest swimming pools in Hermanus !

We have visited Whale Rock 3 times and enjoyed it's comfortable rooms, friendly staff, excellent breakfasts and lovely swimming pool. For the older customer it is quite a long, but very pleasant, walk from central Hermanus. The area is very quiet. Excellent stay.

I was fortunate to find this delightful place last year and my return visit was just as good. The rooms and facilities are excellent, the welcome warm and the overall experience is beyond reproach. They even put up with the vicissitudes of power cuts on a daily basis caused by the continued incompetence of Eskom with quick response with a generator and a smile. I will be back

A charming environment with a nice garden. Delicious breakfast. A short distance from the beach hiking trail and ca. 45 min walk from the center of Hermanus. The rooms are spacious - yet, some of the bathrooms are rather small.

Dear 559hansp, thanks for your lovely review. I believe you stayed in 2 different suites during your stay and the 2nd part of your stay you stayed in the Pool Suite at the Villa. This Suite is suite consisting of 2 floors, with it's own private lounge on the ground floor overlooking the pool and on the 1st floor the bedroom with bathroom. The bathroom of this suite is indeed a bit smaller than all other rooms and suites which are all rather large. This particular bathroom only consists of a single basin, toilet and walk-in shower and is the only bathroom without a bath. We were unfortunately constraint in size, but it suits the purpose and it has a lovely comfortable shower of approx. 1,2 x 1,1 m. The bathroom in the other Suite (Distant "SeaView" Suite, no.4) you stayed in, is a lot larger in size and does have a separate bath and shower, toilet and double basin. We are glad though to hear that you enjoyed the charming environment, nice garden and breakfast. We are indeed a short walk (200m) from the famous Cliff Path and across the road from the new harbour. Kind regards, Dave & The Whale Rock Team
