We have just spent 3 wonderful days here totally relaxing. The breakfast is fantastic. The owners are nice and friendly and made our stay exceedingly pleasant. The lodge has the perfect location with proximity to everything. We will be using this as our base for future visits.

Such a gem to find and very central. .. The owners are the heart of this gem, always willing to help, give directions and more... We have been staying here for a couple of times and will always go back (it's like visiting family)... Love it love it love it.... See you soon

Arriving late in the evening to Mossel Bay, with no accommodations booked, we stumbled upon Blue Whale Lodge. From the moment we were greeted by the owners, to the time we left, they couldn't have been more gracious. The room and house were very quaint and tidy.
