We had room number 12 which not only had the road side noise ( very busy main road) but was at the top of the stairs so anyone using the outside stairway could look straight into the room. There was no phone in the room so you needed to go to the reception area if you needed anything The staff...

Wow, what an absolutely beautiful weekend my wife and I had at Abalone Lodge in Hermanus. We stayed in a beautiful sea facing room which was clean, magnificent décor, and a balcony overlooking the sea. The lodge is nestled on the side of the cliffs with the sound of the sea putting us to sleep and greeting us each morning....

We had a very efficient check in with Benuel and our rooms had super sea views (even from the glass-walled bathroom!) I had emailed in advance and the receptionist had made all our dinner reservations in the splendid restaurants in Hermanus. As golfers we had early starts on 2 days and breakfast was a little chaotic, but very good when...

The guest lodge offers everything almost possible. The house is beautifully designed and the have a terrace facing seaside which is a stunner. Rooms are modern, with AC and proper bathrooms. The pool is very nice, decent in size to cool down. Not for long swimming though. In addition this lodge offers a gym which only few places in Hermanus...

Beautiful property very well done. The suite we had came with a king bed and ensuite all of the highest quality. Have been to MANY properties purporting to be 4 star that aren't. This ticked all the boxes. You won't be disappointed. Personally I thought the mattress was a little hard but that's my personal choice. I can't fault the...

From our arrival to our departure days later we were looked after by friendly and well trained staff. Our room was near enough the sea for us to enjoy the beautiful views. We walked the coastal park and discovered plenty of places for an evening meal. The trip to wineries and local places made this an excellent base of high...

We spent a couple of nights here in an ocean view room. It is a very modern light and airy lodge. Lots of glass. Rooms 2 - 5 all have great views of the ocean, even from the glass walled bathroom!! Short (R60) taxi ride to good restaurants in town. Very good breakfast. Staff were friendly and helpful and not...

We had a two night stay here on our journey along the garden route. Tilly and the team were wonderful from start to finish. Room 6 had dual aspect sea views and a lovely balcony. The mini bar and tea/coffee facilities were great and the room was light, spacious and lovely. The Africology toiletries are beautiful. The pool area is...
