Beautiful rooms and setting - only issue for us was the lack of hot water.We managed to have one hot shower each over the entire weekend on Friday night. On Saturday and Sunday we both had to have cold showers due to there being no hot water. When this was brought to the attention of the lady on duty on...

We spent two dayst at Abalone Guest Lodge, the rooms were spotless and catered for everything... it was winter so the underfloor heating was just what we needed. The double bed was enormous and very comfortable. The rooms are decorated in a beachy theme which adds to the peacefulness of the lodge. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The...

We had such an amazing weekend away, the rooms are beautiful with unbelievable views, opened the curtains to just ocean and mountains. The breakfast was one of the best I've had. Would go back any time.

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!

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...
