“Our stay in Hermanus in Abalone Lodge”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

We enjoyed the night in Abalone Lodge, because everything was as we expected. Exellent Welcome, Breakfast and even the recommendations for Dinner in Burgundys met our needs. Looking forward to our next stay there.

Stayed one night in a clean and spacious room. Very comfortable and location was excellent with a gate leading directly to the cliff walk. We were there mid November, but sadly saw no whales! Only slight criticism is that the breakfast was good on paper, but did not live up to expectations. Otherwise, good stopover.

The service was not what we expected. We did not like the room. Breakfast was ok. Location is very good. Crew was friendly although there is a clear difference between owner run lodges and manages lodges.

Decor like mediteranean meets south africa. Clean, bright, airy. Staff very helpful and kind. Bit far out of centre around the bay but used tuk tuk in evening. What a novelty! Agree with the previous 3 reviews so wont repeat.

Room Tip: only 1 room appeared to have sea view, which is a great shame.

Stayed here for 2 nights. very comfortable, Fabulous views of the bay with whales easliy visible. Staff could not do enough to please, nothing a problem. Restaurants and taxis booked, snacks and meals served on request. Good laundry service especially if you are driving the Garden Route and living out of a suitcase. Lovely pool -everything spotless.

Really warm welcome. All staff very friendly and kind to children. even made special breakfast to tempt youngest. Great location. Cliff path behind house. Whales came right up to rocks. Breakfast on verandah watching whales in bay - what a memory

We regretted only having one night to spend at Abalone Lodge. The location was ideal, we could enjoy lots of whale watching from the deck and from the cliff walk, which is a perfect way to get into town. The facility was spotlessly clean, the welcome was warm and efficient. We opted for an easy dinner there rather than heading back into town, and Erica made a delicious pizza and salad. Great breakfast! We would highly recommend this facility, and suggest a longer stay.

Room Tip: Our ground floor street side room was more than adequate, but no view. We spent so much time out of...
