We stayed 3 nights at the end of our holiday. Although we were given a glass of wine on arrival there was no offer of help with our luggage. When we asked for a suggestion of a restaurant a booking was arranged and a taxi which was great. After that we had to ask for everything including our "free" bottle... More

My wife and I stayed at the Abalone for four nights. We had a wonderful, quiet, relaxed time there. The room was fantastic. The view over the bay was wonderful giving us every opportunity to view the whales albeit through binoculars- but we couldn't blame the Abalone for that! Breakfasts were excellent. The only issue we had was in finding... More

The Abalone Guest house is aiming for high standards and achieved them during our 3 night stay. Spacious, modern room with fine sea views and balcony, in our case, an excellent breakfast with plenty of choice and friendly, efficient staff. It is sited on a small, walled, plot so a slightly cramped feel, but is adjacent to the cliff path.... More

Our close friends, the wife and I were looking for a place to stay in Hermanus for the night. The place seemed ideal. It was. Discreet, on the shore, clean, all one would need for a short break. It's close enough to the town's centre, far enough not to get bogged down in the hustle and bustle, and around the... More

My fiancé and I stayed for 1 night and it was lovely. Views of the mountains, gardens and ocean while you have breakfast was the highlight for us. A special thank you to Walker Bay Adventures for the referral.

The holiday started at Cape Town and then we went to Hermanus. We went whale watching on a boat but could also see them from Abalone. What a delightful sight. Beautiful walks along the coast. Stayed one night but 2 or 3 would have done the stay more justice.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are delighted to hear you enjoyed your time with us in Hermanus. Yes the cliff path walk is definitely a hi-light. Hermanus has a lot to offer, a 1night stay is too short. Hope to welcome you back to the lodge in the near future. Regards Dijana More

My son and I stayed just one night. unfortunately we missed the whale watching with the boat because of the weather but the accommodation was super and the position fantastic. Breakfast super and the staff very kind and efficient. Only small problem was wifi not working problem in our room which is a problem only because we communicated by web.
