The place is perfectly located just around the corner of the town centre as well as waterfront. Nicely separated of the road by the houses you have a perfect garden for a tasty BBQ! The rooms are spacious and comfy, the cottages are really lovely! Fine experience, thanks!

After much confusion about whether our online payment had even been received or not, we arrived to find our reservation for a "two bedroomed / pet friendly cottage" was (a) one double bedroom and a small alcove off the living room with twin beds (partly hidden by gauze curtains - no privacy), and our dog was not welcome. They blamed...

It was our Anniversary and my Hubby decided to treat me to a night away in Hermanus. When we got there we stood in front of the gate ringing the bell as the sign instructed us to do. After about 10 minutes we were still standing in front of the gate. My Hubby decided to check the gate, it was...

We booked this place last minute after a most unpleasant experience in a guest house in Somerset West which we left early. Loved the main house, not so much the 'cottages'. I imagine it would be a great party house. Never saw so many drinking glasses and there is a bar and a pool table! We aren't party people.....3 grandparents,...

In serious need of maintenance. Specific attention to bathrooms. No air conditioner or fans. Front doors to cottages remain locked allowing for a serious fire hazard. Bedding of better quality. Cleaning done daily and done well.

Our room was very nice but unfortunately the customer service was not great. We were left feeling unwelcome after a dispute about incorrect email addresses (we just followed what we were given) and we were not offered an apology in any form even though this was not our fault. We were told off for coming around the wrong way, but...

We will stay here again in a heartbeat. Loved the place and got so much more than what we bargained for. This was a last minute booking and we were so lucky to obtain the reservation. Booking this spot will be a great choice. Thanks very much for the awesome service!

A colleague and I stayed at this property for a week in order to work on a scholarly article. She stayed in the house, while I stayed in a cottage. It worked very well. We had peace and quiet, several tables to choose from and a wifi connection. Moreover, we could walk to the seafront and to shops and eateries...

I found the place rather expensive for what you get. From all the accommodations where I stayed (9) this was 2nd place in price. And was on second last on my list. It was old, smelly and I would not recommend this place. Location was fine related to the city center.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Whale Coast Lodge is a luxury, child friendly home where children have space to play. It is a self-catering establishment with four en-suite rooms, fully equipped communal kitchen and a cosy fire place with flat screen TV in the lounge. The Lodge has a barbeque area outside for the guests own use. The Lodge is serviced every day and clean towels and linen are provided. A camping cot is available on request for babies under age 3. If you do not feel like sharing the lodge facilities with other guests, book one of our fully equipped Cottages or The Whale Coast Manor for your own privacy. We have recently renovated and added these three Cottages and The Manor (sleeps max 10 people) to our establishment. New image, new management and ready to assist your every need. ... more   less
