We only got two night but felt totally welcomed when we arrived and when we had a full day just chilling we were made to feel welcome and comfortable in the main room with the sofas. The staff were so helpful and wanted us to have the best stay

Danie & Louise, Thank you so much for your wonderful review. We hope all is well with the two of you and that you got to spend time with Louise's nieces. I'm not going to ask who the new card game champion is because I already have an idea. Having you stay at the lodge has been "a breath of fresh air". It is so good to see people enjoy themselves while on vacation. We honestly hope to see you again, hopefully on your next visit to South Africa. Until then, stay safe and healthy and we are hoping all the best for you.

A beautiful view and loved that you could access the walkway along the coast from the hotel. Breakfast was yummy, so many things to choose from. Friendly and helpful staff, made us feel welcome and cared for. The TV didn't work but looked nice :p

Breathtaking views from our rooms and the best breakfast on our trip. We have never been told "these are the ingredients we have and we can make you whatever you like", plus a buffet table . A beautiful walk into town and nice deck and pool for relaxing. Thank you Ansley and all the team for your incredible welcome and hospitality. We will be back for whale watching. .

My husband and I stayed a night at this lodge and it was outstanding. Ainsley and his staff's hospitality is very proffesional and welcoming. Our room was super comfortable and we lived the rustic modern decor of the whole hotel/lodge. The pool area is also fun and quiet. The place us very close to attractions in Hermanus, like Dutchies. The deck is fabulously set up with a wide view of Walkers Bay. We will definately be back

We truly enjoyed our stay at Abalone Lodge in Hermanus. The view is spectacular which is only enhanced with the wonderful staff. Every need was met with the friendliest services. The rooms are spacious and complements the relaxed easy feel one wants when overlooking the ocean. Breakfast was a highlight, fresh and made to perfection.

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights at Abalone, we wish we had stayed for longer. The views across the bay are spectacular. The coastal walk to the centre of Hermanus (which takes about half an hour) was enjoyable both for the scenery and wildlife. Everything at the lodge was perfect, Ansley and his team looked after us royally. The room was spotless and fitted out to a high standard, and the breakfast was great. Would definitely recommend, and will hopefully return ourselves some day!

Experience was divine. Warm welcome by gracious Ainsley and other staff. Room had perfect view no matter where you stood; I never wanted to depart. Perfect place to retire after experiencing the local Walker Bay Wine Region. Breakfast was legendary! Anything you can imagine. Thankful that a local friend introduced a world traveler from New York like me to this secret gem. I’ll return many times!

Nice size room. The property is beautifully located BUT on a busy road. We did not hear any of the traffic as we had a sea facing suite. Very well kept, very friendly and helpful staff. Great breakfast selection.
