My Family and I had pleasant stay in this hotel, although we spent just one night. Close to the town but not walk distance. Unfortunately I had two problems with the same work I don´t know the name: First one lady told my husband that we could make a late checkout. Another lady didn´t so I had to pack up and move alone to my childrens´room. Another problem was with respect a purchases of some products. One of the ladies told me that all the products were wrapped and when I was in Knysna I realized that I was missing something.

We stayed here for two nights and it was really amazing, great views, nice pool and friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast and lunch was lovely. We would highly recommend. We asked for best room with a view and we got it, it made this part of our honeymoon really great.

We had a very pleasant stay in the Abalone Guest Lodge, the view out of the Room was fantastic and the staff was very nice. The Lodge ist very close to a nice walk path to the cliffs. We would definitly recommend this hotel to other guests.

We stayed at Abalone for 2 nights. We arrived when the whales were performing and the views from the terrace were wonderful. The accommodation was wonderful. Our room was large, comfortable and beautifully decorated. The staff were so helpful & friendly particularly Erika, she recommended & booked restaurants & tuc tucs for us. She also sold us her favourite Abalone shell, which is now sitting on our fire place. The breakfasts & light snacks were beautifully presented and delicious. The hotel has direct access on to the cliff top path overlooking the ocean and the whales, there are some perfectly placed benches to just sit and watch. We also spent a very pleasant afternoon sitting on the terrace with a glass of wine, watching the whales.
