We arrived with no booking & were treated by the owner as "distant relatives"!!! Or so it felt! A rare occurrence & absolutely delightful! He could not have done more re: efficient, fast check in / information regarding dining opportunities; general tourist information; maps etc. The lodge is small & extremely "homely" -- a pleasant ambience & as one would...

I am very sorry for this customer, They told us they were very happy and did not complain to me about anything but have the courage to write a review like this.

Such a gem to find and very central. .. The owners are the heart of this gem, always willing to help, give directions and more... We have been staying here for a couple of times and will always go back (it's like visiting family)... Love it love it love it.... See you soon

Arriving late in the evening to Mossel Bay, with no accommodations booked, we stumbled upon Blue Whale Lodge. From the moment we were greeted by the owners, to the time we left, they couldn't have been more gracious. The room and house were very quaint and tidy. Included in the nightly rate were fresh towels, tea and biscuits as well...
