A very good bed and breakfast hotel with superior boutique accommodation and very good food. It's a bit of a walk into town but the local taxis were cheap and readily available. Any chance you could warm up the sea or the swimming pool? In Hermanus the lemon butta restaurant was terrific. Best meal I had in South Africa.

Wonderful place, with stunning views,of the ocean, I only wish we could have stayed there longer. The room had everything you could have wished for. The town is a short drive away (5 minutes) and you need to book restaurants at peak times around xmas /new year.

We came here with our children. This is a quiet place in a beautiful setting, next to the cliff path. The (small) swimming pool with terrace and honesty bar are very inviting. The breakfast is top. Very clean.

The room was spacious, breakfast slightly disappointing needing a serving tongue to get the fruit salad and coffee lukewarm - however when we asked for fresh...

I can really recommend Abalone lodge. It is new, clean, very friendly and flexible staff, nice breakfast, nice pool and beautiful view with direct access to the sea. You need to have a car though since it is a little bit outside Hermanus.
