Nadine and I found the accommodation to be just what we needed. It was clean, comfortable and priced right for what we wanted to pay We will gladly recommend it and would certainly come again.
Kind regards

Very nice (and new) apartments, located in a shopping center 5 minutes walk from the sea.

We booked a big unit with three bedrooms and two fully equipped bathrooms. It was divided in two floors, with kitchen, living area and balcony on the ground floor, and all rooms on the upper floor.
We found it very nice, clean and complete, thanks to the big lcd tv with audio syste and usb, kitchen was definitely great and there is also a bbq on the balcony (we could not use it beacuse of the weather).
One little note could be the size of the double rooms upstairs: the main one is large, while the other two are kind of small.

Wifi internet is provided for free, but there is a data cap of 300Mb for your stay and it doesnt seem to work on the ground floor (which is where we stayed most of the time).
Parking is free in a large underground garage, accessible with electronic key.

Unfortunately we were only given one key at check-in and it turned a bit difficult to handle the many security measures they are using.. As it is impossible to go out in the early morning, when all the entrance doors are locked and therefore not accessible from outside and from inside (!!)

Managers were very kind and friendly, while the other reception staff did not look to be too worried about us being without hot water for all morning and again when we told them that it was raining Inside one of our rooms.

However we would definitely suggest this place, which is very convenient and offers a good service at a fair price.

We have been staying at this place for two nights. The rooms are very nice and we got lots of good advice about what to do / not to do in Hermanus. Very friendly staff. We would definitely go there again. It was only a short walk to the sea where we could see lots of whales that got really close to the shore.

This place is a great base for staying in the Hermanus area. It's easy to walk in to town and to the coastal path and it's like a home from home so you can bbq and cook if needs be. Our room was spotless. We'd have no hesitation in recommending it to others.

Room was quite neat and place is spacious and peaceful during the night, you can't find any other place like this at such a bargain price. The place is located closely to the town center and it is just a 5-minute walk distance. Thanks to Janette for the arrangement, you are very kind.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2013 via mobile

we visited Hermanus on a spur of the moment weekend trip just to see the whales and were lucky enough to get accomodation that was both pretty and comfortable and allowed children under the age of 3. The room we had was tge southern right whale room and jad a king size bed and double bunker- it was spacious and comfortable. There was a heater, dstv enabled tv and dvd player and even adapter for charging your cell (perfect as we had forgotten to pack ours). The bathroom had a spa bath and shower. The self catering aspect to the place meant a communal kitchen and lounge with fireplace. We would visit and stay again especially since our baby (3 months old) was welcomed and not an issue also we would stay again if we went over with family booking the entire house.

We booked on Wikki deals with the lodge for the whale Festival weekend in September? Dan was our host, and provided good ideas on what to do, where to eat and how to avoid some of the crowds? Fortunately the lodge is situated slightly out of the main CBD area, and it was indeed a pleasure to return to the quiet surrounds of the lodge after a busy lunch or dinner out.

We felt spoiled and we'll looked after. Breakfast was great and out room was magnificent. great value on the Wikkideal And we would love to return.

Room Tip: All round nice and quite.
