Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 22, 2014

We were welcomed with warm hearts.
My boyfriend and I spent two nights at Abalone Guest Lodge.
It was the BEST weekend we had in a long time.
The people at the lodge were very friendly and made us feel at home.
The place was very neat and tidy, my favourite part was when I went to bed at night all I could hear was the sound of the waves beyond awesomeness!
I surely would want to go again!

Room Tip: Room that can be taken are the ones on the south side its very quite.

A wonderfully warm welcome was the beginning of our great stay at this superbly located guest lodge in Hermanus. Tania was a gem hostess, the staff were charming and the breakfasts sumptuous. From your balcony, we watched whales frolicking in the bay - spectacular! Thoroughly recommend!

My husband and I spent one night at the Abalone Guest Lodge and it was our favorite place in SA hands down. We requested an ocean view room and they delivered-it was beautiful. The room was tastefully decorated and their attention to detail is phenomenal. You want for nothing here. Everything was very clean and the rain shower heads are awesome. The living room is modern and beachy and is very inviting. We were given a glass of complimentary wine and we sat and relaxed in the living area looking at the ocean. The breakfast was excellent! You have your choice of meats, cheeses, fruit, cereal or a hot breakfast cooked to order. The lodge itself sits next to an ocean side path that you can walk into town, which was really nice. The staff was attentive, friendly and professional. I cannot say enough great things about Abalone and can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Ask for ocean view. It will make your stay even better.

Stayed over 1 night at Abalone Guest Lodge and it was undoubtedly 1 of my fav fav fav night in my entire trip to SA. Rooms were clean, spacious, neat and felt very homely. Especially love the fact that the toilets have a shower head plus a rainshower to offer guests a choice. Staff were friendly, helpful and gave us perfect personalised service. Definitely will come back again!!!!

We stayed for 1 night at Abalone Guest Lodge. Perfect room, excellent hospitality and service, good advice for dinning. Perfect location with view to the sea. Nice breakfast, nothing missing

Certainly a Lodge to recommend.

Abalone Lodge almost reminded me of home...really great spot close to the wonderful cliff walk, very friendly service and loved the little lounge area! The gym helped a bit to rid some of the calories I acquired at the restaurants :D Will be back!

Room Tip: I liked Room #2 - very nice view of the ocean and a lot of natural light! there are garden and sea f...

We stopped over in Hermanus for a night and found Abalone Guest Lodge after several of the previous Guesthouses did not answer their phones and gates. Abalone Guesthouse is very neat, comfortable and friendly. We had an amazing night's rest and had a delicious breakfast the next morning! Great value for money. We'll definitely be back to try the spa out next time.
