We had a lovely week in the Whale rock lodge. Fantastic rooms, great pool, lovely breakfast and awesome service. The owners and manager know how to make your holidays relaxed with their very warm service and help in booking restaurants, day activities etc. We will come back for sure!

Stayed: January 2014, travelled as a couple

We have just returned from another superb stay at this delightful lodge. The new owners have made considerable improvements, modernising the rooms and bathrooms, and we like what they have achieved.
We are so happy that Mel remains in charge. With her knowledge of the area, her friendly and efficient leadership guarantees a most enjoyable stay.

Whale Rock Luxury Lodge has an enviable garden and superb pool and is ideally located for taking long cliff top and beach walks.

We have already booked our return visit

We are return visitors to Whale Rock Lodge which is under "new" management. We were delighted to find that Mel was still very much present and that the new owners had retained her. We were welcomed back to find beautifully refurbished rooms with neutral colour schemes and crisp white bedding and towels. Delightful quality products in the bathroom also added to the theme. We had a turn town service with weather forecast for the following day. The team were most helpful when it came to restaurant bookings and recommendations. Nothing is too much trouble. The pool area is spacious and the sun loungers are all new and comfortable. We absolutely love Whale Rock Lodge and all it stands for.

Whale rock is a very comfortable pleasant base to enjoy Hermanus.
Lovely appointed bedrooms and garden and pool area.
Breakfast in the morning is a real treat with great food. Staff and very friendly and helpful.
Pleasant walks in to Hermanus and would recommend la pentola in town for food or a 30 minute trip to Stanford and a new German food paradise called springfontein

After two weeks of traveling along the W C we arrived at the Whale Rock for a four nights stay.
From arrival till leave, great stay and perfect ending of a stunning trip. The staff was very friendly and helpfull, making reservations for dinner, pointing out travelroutes (wineries), practical tips. We really had a being at home feeling, last day we stayed at the pool (afternoon) they served us drinks and even ordered take away for us (we didn't want to go out). As promissed, the laundry was done on time, so no complains what so ever!

We like to thank you once more for making our stay part of an unforgetable holiday!
