“Did not want to leave!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2014

Well run by lady with great attention to little details that makes your stay memorable. Well appointed facilities with bath and shower en suite. Beautiful setting with stunning sea and mountain views and easy walking distance from the blue flag Grotto Beach. Highly recommended!

Upon arriving at The Lavender Manor Guest Lodge, we were greeted by the owner Kobos, who runs the guest lodge with his wife Isabel. We were made to feel welcome and shown around the guest lodge and offered a choice of two different rooms. Both rooms were very nice, we decided to go for the room with the sea view and balcony. The room had its own minibar fridge which was well stocked and the prices are very reasonable. There's also a self service bar in the upstairs lounge area, which also has a nice patio to sit out on with a sea view. The guest house itself is nicely laid out and very well kept. There's a small pool with patio area and sunbeds. The guest house has plenty of on site parking. The breakfast which is included in the price, is of a high standard. There are cereals, meats, breads, cheeses, yogurts, fruits, fruit salad, fruit juices, tea and coffee to help yourself to, as well as an order taken from your table for cooked breakfasts.
We went to the nearby Grotto Beach which was only a 5 minute walk away. This was a nice, pleasant beach and wasn't particularly busy. There are toilets and beachside showers here as well as a restaurant facing onto the beach. If travelling by car, there's a large car park.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Lavender Manor Guest Lodge. We only stayed for 2 nights as we were moving onto Mossel Bay. Our only regret is that we didn't have time to stay for longer. Definitely a place that we'd like to go back to stay at.

Wonderful Guesthouse, clean well maintained 5 star quality, with attention to personal detail, we really enjoyed our stay, great location near the best beach. One recommendation would be to have air-conditions in the rooms.

Sometimes you find a real treasure and Lavender Lodge fits the bill. It is about 3 miles outside the busy and noisy centre of Hermanus in an upmarket residential area and 5 mins walk to the beach.
The welcome was perfect and the rooms and common parts are very tastefully done with high quality fittings. The bedroom had a large bed and big fluffy towels. Nothing was too much trouble for mein host. The breakfast was a delight.
We dined twice at Dutchies restaurant on the beach just 5 mins walk away as the fish was so fresh and the wines were a treat.
Would we come back- you bet

Exquisite room overlooking sea and mountains. Attention to detail and luxury. Great breakfast. Wonderful hosts and service. Loved the patio and bar.
Location a bit far from town but very close to Grotto Beach and lovely walks.

Situated just outside town with excellent views of the bay. Our room had views of the mountains and bay with a small veranda to soak in the views from. The dining and Bar areas are very clean, well decorated and full of character. Two exterior veranda's are available to soak in the views and do a spot of whale watching - we managed to see one whale from this position during our stay.Our room had a massive bed , huge bathroom ans shower and tasteful furnishings. Breakfast was varied, plentiful and served by very pleasant and effective staff. Our hosts pre booked dinner at local restaurants and arrange transport for us which was much appreciated. A great place to stay to explore Hermanus and conduct the obligatory Whale watching.

If you are going to Hermanus about 2 hours drive from Cape Town then you won't be disappointed if you stay at this nice guest house very friendly owner who was so helpful when I had a health issue whilst we were there couldn't do enough to help the rooms are very good but there are some stairs to climb to most this would not be a problem but if you are not to good on your feet they might be I managed but only just other wise don't be put of as the rest of this place and the service was very very good.
