Any info on Whale Sanctuary Lodge? (vs. Auberge Burgundy)

Hi!

Does anyone have any information on the Whale Sanctuary Lodge in De Kelders? My wife and I are considering it versus the Auberge Burgundy.

The cost is 300/400 rand higher and it looks like it COULD be a nice splurge for our one night in Hermanus.

BUT, the pictures on their website do a poor job showing the actual building and grounds. (This is too often not accidental!) And the AB seems to have great reviews across the board for less $$.

Any thoughts or help would be much appreciated!

Hi Henry

We stayed at Whalesong Lodge in de Kelders in March for two nights and it was wonderful, depending on what you want. De Kelders is only a small hamlet with one coffee bar/cafe and one restaurant, but the Lodge does dinner every alternate night. Great views over Walker Bay across to Hermanus and in fact we just sat on the terrace all day with a bottle/glass of wine and a good book and binoculars. If you want more action then go to Hermanus but we loved the Lodge. The hosts are great, and very informal - honesty bar, free tea and coffee and loads of books etc. Part of the portfolio collection guest houses - we stayed in 7 of these during our month stay in SA and all were great.

Have a great time

We've returned from our trip and just a note of clarification if anyone is researching: thanks for the reply Joyce, but the Whale Santuary Lodge is actually a different residence. I found no information here about it, and will post a review of the accommodations.
