We booked in for one night and extended our stay for another night as we enjoyed our accommodation so much. The rooms are well appointed and spacious with attention to detail. The breakfast was scrumptious and well presented. Views are really lovely, I can recommend a nature walk through the fynbos along the ocean. This is such a lovely guest...

We stayed for two days and had a room with sea view. The rooms are lovely decorated and very cosy. The view from the balcony is wonderful. You can start a walk along the coast directly from the hotel. The pool deck is also very nice. I will return if I visit this area again.

A visit to the Abalone Lodge and Wellness Centre in Hermanus is a wonderful experience not to be missed. The lodge is very tranquil and just walking distance from the ocean. The Spa is small but the treatments is off hight quality. I can really recommend it

I would highly recommend this Guest House to anyone looking for a few nights stay in Hermanus. Especially those intending to play golf when the course is within a few hundred yards. We were made very welcome and staff went out of their way to accommodate our early start times for golf. Very friendly atmosphere, very comfortable accomodation.

We stayed here for just a single night and were impressed not only by the spotlessly clean, light and airy beach house type decor and ambience throughout the property , the views from the deck and from the indoor communal reception area over the directly accessible flower strewn cliff top walk with the sea behind but also the welcome and...
