This was our first stay at Abalone guest house. It was absolutely wonderful!! Ansley and Siwo provided a warm welcome taking care of bags and showing us around the guest house. The house was immaculate and inviting. Breakfast was always fresh and delicious with happy smiling faces eager to serve a great breakfast. We had the added bonus of being able to have dinner at the guest house as well. The views of the sea were stunning and it was so convenient to enjoy the cliff paths. This is a wonderful place to stay Hermanus. Thank you for lovely visit!

Delightful staff made our visit extremely comfortable. Nothing was too much trouble, the room very well equipped maybe a smart tv would have helped a little. Its on a main road so you have to keep some windows closed and use the fans. That way the odd traffic noise is no problem. The Cliff walk from outside the back door are beautiful, and town is in easy reach. The Golf Club is almost opposite. Breakfast buffet first rate. Would definitely stay again

The location of this place is difficult to beat if you want access to the cliff walks, the views and a 5 minute walk to Hermanus golf course. The rooms are immaculate and the service is first class. The place has a very relaxed atmosphere and the staff are very helpful, friendly and obliging. It's a 5 minute drive to where the restaurants are but you can dine at the hotel. We only had the ve4y good breakfast so cannot comment on dinner. The price is high for what we have paid acrossthe Garden Route, but generally it was good value

Booked a luxury sea facing room with fantastic view onto the ocean and cliff walk. Had a lovely dinner on Friday night at the lodge. Very friendly, helpful staff. Nice pool area (although pool needs cleaning). Large room (spacious enough to place 2 large suitcases plus backpacks etc.). Only downturn: no air conditioning.

We had a 3-night stay at Abalone guest lodge in Hermanus. We have 2 busy boys, and they were patient with us, catered for fussy eaters. Lovely pool area, food was fantastic, room was spacious however they can do with new pillows. I am a clean freak, and the bathroom could have been a bit cleaner and more sterile. But overall, a great experience with Abalone and we will definitely be back.
