We spent one night in the roof top room. The rooms amenities were on key. Nice size bedroom hotel quality bed and bedding. The bathroom had only a bath with a shower in the bath - it did not bother us too much. The hosts were very friendly and great. The only down side I suppose is that it felt... More

We found this place by pure luck! My boyfriend and I were due to stay in Cape town at a Hilton hotel the night we stayed at Sea star lodge, but we're very disappointed with the hotel, so we needed to book somewhere else for that night. We found the Sea star lodge on booking.com and were hoping the pictures... More

You could not wish for a better hostess! Friendly and very knowledgeable about the area. Great location with views across the bay towards Hermanus. Spacious rooms and a delicious breakfast. Ask her about her friend Neil and his restaurant in his home

We had initially booked the smallest room for one night but upon arrival we asked if we could stay two nights as we wanted to do shark diving and kayaking with whales, see Hermanus and spend some time at the beach...

We stayed for 2 nights in the Master suite which not only has an amazing bathroom, but better still, amazing views over the Bay, and yes you can see Whales from there if you are lucky.

We really enjoyed our stay (we were only able to stay 1 night) at this lodge. It's neat, modern & clean, but without a doubt, it's greatest asset is the excellent service from the manager (Rita) - So very accomodating of our requirements. The view from the lodge is amazing - An ideal spot to relax.
