Never have I had such a warm welcome! The duty manager greeted us in the grounds no sooner than we had opened the car doors. We were taken to one of the communal lounges where we were given a welcome drink and an explanation of the lodge services.
We spent two nights at this beautiful lodge, my two teenage sons occupying the interlocking adjacent room. The rooms were probably big enough to accommodate four beds and the en suite bathrooms were plush.
The breakfasts were great with plenty to choose from by way of continental or cooked.
The lodge is literally 1 minute walk from the coastal path. It is about a 10 minute walk along the (safe) path into Hermanus which has plenty of eateries to choose from. The coastal scenery along the walk is spectacular! In the opposite direction and less than 5 minutes stroll away is Hermanus new harbor which also has a nice looking restaurant and wine bar (but we did not eat here). This is where the whale watching boats depart from as well.
Fantastic place to stay, away from the hustle and bustle of the centre of Hermanus.
Highly recommend the Whale Rock Lodge.

Situated across the road from the New Harbour and the start of the cliff path, it is but a 3 minute walk down to the edge of the cliff and a 5 minute drive to the centre of town. The Lodge has 11 beautifully decorated en suite Rooms & Suites, extensive and well manicured lawns and gardens, a koi pond and probably one of the the largest swimming pools in Hermanus and it is solar heated! ... more less
