My husband and I spent one night at the Abalone Guest Lodge and it was our favorite place in SA hands down. We requested an ocean view room and they delivered-it was beautiful. The room was tastefully decorated and their attention to detail is phenomenal. You want for nothing here. Everything was very clean and the rain shower heads are...

Abalone Lodge almost reminded me of home...really great spot close to the wonderful cliff walk, very friendly service and loved the little lounge area! The gym helped a bit to rid some of the calories I acquired at the restaurants :D Will be back!

We stopped over in Hermanus for a night and found Abalone Guest Lodge after several of the previous Guesthouses did not answer their phones and gates. Abalone Guesthouse is very neat, comfortable and friendly. We had an amazing night's rest and had a delicious breakfast the next morning! Great value for money. We'll definitely be back to try the spa...

We booked in for one night and extended our stay for another night as we enjoyed our accommodation so much. The rooms are well appointed and spacious with attention to detail. The breakfast was scrumptious and well presented. Views are really lovely, I can recommend a nature walk through the fynbos along the ocean. This is such a lovely guest...

We stayed for two days and had a room with sea view. The rooms are lovely decorated and very cosy. The view from the balcony is wonderful. You can start a walk along the coast directly from the hotel. The pool deck is also very nice. I will return if I visit this area again.

A visit to the Abalone Lodge and Wellness Centre in Hermanus is a wonderful experience not to be missed. The lodge is very tranquil and just walking distance from the ocean. The Spa is small but the treatments is off hight quality. I can really recommend it

I would highly recommend this Guest House to anyone looking for a few nights stay in Hermanus. Especially those intending to play golf when the course is within a few hundred yards. We were made very welcome and staff went out of their way to accommodate our early start times for golf. Very friendly atmosphere, very comfortable accomodation.
