Baleens is just fantastic! Old school hospitality and charm that is perfect when travelling with small children. We loved how close to the lagoon and Voelklip it is. And then the pool and games room is another win if you don't fancy heading out. The rooms were spacious and comfortable and priced right for a quick family get away. We will definitely be back!

The facilities were clean, staff was friendly, breakfast was delicious, very comfortable stay and value for money. My daughter enjoyed the pool more as she’s 9 and it’s not that deep. I’d definitely recommend this establishment to my friends and family.

Baleens Hotel is a perfectly located guest house in walking distance of Grotto Beach. The accommodation has sufficient parking for guests. The rooms are a good size with comfortable beds and decent bed linen. We stayed in pool facing rooms. Family room doesn't have a fridge but our double room did. Service was great and the manager was attentive throughout our stay. WIFI recption was good. Room towels were not great, size was limited to both towel and some had holes in them. The TV is tiny. Breakfast is limited you would be bored with the menu after two mornings.

The staff were very friendly and tried their best to be as accommodating as much as they could. The breakfast was good, however the rooms and gaming room could use some attention, as it's very outdated. We had bad weather during our stay so we were in the room most of the weekend and our kids hated that the tv was so little.

We had the most wonderful stay at Baleens. Jacques was friendly, professional and so accommodating. Our room was beautiful, with an amazing view of the ocean and a short walk to the beach. We will definitely be back!

I`ve experienced a couple with 2 small children demanding the waiter to take their breakfast order 1st, this after they entered last in the dining room. I was so disgusted with this behavior, that I actually did not order any breakfast for my wife and I, and just packed up and left. For whatever reason sparked this, I will never condone such behavior in future again. This will need to change, as I felt so sorry for the poor waiter that was only trying to please everybody. But never again in your town, nothing wrong with the Hotel though. I cannot deal with racist people that has no place in this country any longer. Your ethics in the hotel has to change though, your visitors should know to treat any person irrespective of colour, creed or race -Staff or fellow visitors with the respect they deserve. I think Jacque is an excellent manager, my wife and I were treated like royalty. Thanks for a memorable experience though.
