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.
We stayed only one night during our tour on the coast towards the wine route. Beautiful location of this modern and perfectly run Gest Lodge. They also suggested a very good seafood restaurant on the new port. Ùnfortunatly we had bad raining weather.
