Stayed one night in a clean and spacious room. Very comfortable and location was excellent with a gate leading directly to the cliff walk. We were there mid November, but sadly saw no whales! Only slight criticism is that the breakfast was good on paper, but did not live up to expectations. Otherwise, good stopover.

The service was not what we expected. We did not like the room. Breakfast was ok. Location is very good. Crew was friendly although there is a clear difference between owner run lodges and manages lodges.

Decor like mediteranean meets south africa. Clean, bright, airy. Staff very helpful and kind. Bit far out of centre around the bay but used tuk tuk in evening. What a novelty! Agree with the previous 3 reviews so wont repeat.

Stayed here for 2 nights. very comfortable, Fabulous views of the bay with whales easliy visible. Staff could not do enough to please, nothing a problem. Restaurants and taxis booked, snacks and meals served on request. Good laundry service especially if you are driving the Garden Route and living out of a suitcase. Lovely pool -everything spotless.

We regretted only having one night to spend at Abalone Lodge. The location was ideal, we could enjoy lots of whale watching from the deck and from the cliff walk, which is a perfect way to get into town. The facility was spotlessly clean, the welcome was warm and efficient. We opted for an easy dinner there rather than heading...

This lodge is a gem of a guest house which is enlivened by the excellent hospitality offered by the staff there. We stayed there for one night on our honeymoon and are glad that we did. There is ample parking space at the lodge. Whilst the lodge is a good 20-30 minute walk out of the middle of town, the...

The perfect place to stay with service second to none. Wonderful location. Beautifully clean. Excellent breakfasts and facilities. All this tied together by the most helpful and friendly staff who made it their job to ensure that our stay was memorable. It certainly was!!
