Fabulous 3 days
We spent 3 amazing nights at the Abalone Guest Lodge. We had an Ocean View Suite which had a balcony and beautiful sea views. The guesthouse is modern and tastefully decorated and has all the amenities which one requires. It was an absolute pleasure to have underfloor heating and heated towel rails as the weather was quite cold at night. The guest house is close to the golf course and set overlooking the sea and cliff path. It is a beautiful walk along the coastline. Ansley was a fabulous host and catered to our every need. Our breakfasts were fabulous and he couldn't have been more obliging and helpful any more than he was. I highly recommend this establishment.
Excellent stay during troubled times.
We stayed at the Abalone guest house just as the Coronavirus Pandemic was beginning to get a hold on South Africa. The service we received was beyond expectations both in helpfulness from the management and from the chef who came in to cook for just the two of us, and the meals were superb, simple but cooked to perfection. We had to arrange repatriation whilst staying there and Ansley and his staff were excellent, arranging for an additional nights accommodation on our way back to Cape Town. We could not praise them highly enough.
From the moment we arrived until we left, we found the service excellent. The staff were always on hand to help. The rooms were spotless and very comfortable. We would definitely make it our preferred place to stay should we return to Hermanus.
The Perfect Spot
We stayed at Abalone Lodge in Hermanus for two nights with friends from Scotland. Everything from the booking to the welcome to breakfast to the quality of the rooms was amazing. Jan welcomed us, and I don't think there was anything he wouldn't do to make us comfortable! He was amazing, the staff were amazing. It was one of those memorable and happy stays that stick in your mind - and you want to go back.
From the moment we were greeted at our car I felt welcome and important. The staff is so professional and yet could be family at the same time. The rooms are beautifully decorated with attention to detail all the way throughout. From the garden gate guests can link onto a beautiful hiking trail that goes on for kilometers along the sea front and takes you into town or leads you to breathtaking beaches and view points. Our view from our balcony was stunning and we spend many ours there with a glass of wine and a book. We also cycled in the area and enjoyed what nature had to offer. Truly a magical experience.
