We came here with our children. This is a quiet place in a beautiful setting, next to the cliff path. The (small) swimming pool with terrace and honesty bar are very inviting. The breakfast is top. Very clean.

We were greeted by a friendly member of staff who offered us a drink and then informed us of practicalities. We had a garden room with small patio and a sea view when standing. The room was spacious, breakfast slightly disappointing needing a serving tongue to get the fruit salad and coffee lukewarm - however when we asked for fresh...

Location, feel and look, service delivery, security and friendly staff exceeded our expectation. I enjoyex the serenity and long walks to from town. A hidden gem. I will make this my annual retreat destination.

I can really recommend Abalone lodge. It is new, clean, very friendly and flexible staff, nice breakfast, nice pool and beautiful view with direct access to the sea. You need to have a car though since it is a little bit outside Hermanus.

The location is beautiful with very nice sea views and not far from Hermanus itself. The room was spacious even though we were not sure if it was the one shown when you booked through Agoda. It just lacks personality.

Friendly and modern, great breakfast and fantastic views from the deck. You can start from the B&B a nice walk along the sea. The rooms are modern and the floor heating in the bathroom is a nice surprise

We stayed there for 3 nights end of Nov and loved it. Good service, top room quality, impressive view.... They only serve breakfast (which is ok as there are plenty of great restaurants around) and that is excellent. They gave us good recommendation of what to do (e.g. where to best whale watch) and where to eat. Make sure you...
