“Swimmingpool was great!”
Reviewed 26 November 2009

We stayed for 2 nights at livesey lodge. The owner is very friendly and the breakfast very nice. The room was comfortable and had everything you need. The bed was very good :) It's a bit of a stroll to the city centre, but you can walk along the ocean which makes the stroll a lot more interesting :)

Reviewed 5 February 2009

The room was of a good standard with a large comfortable bed and sitting area, although some updating/refurbishment was needed and we felt that the numerous notices posted around were rather unnecessary. The friendly owner was always willing to chat and advise on restaurants and places to visit. We were disappointed with 'The Burgundy' which had been recommended by her, as my ostrich was inedible. This was a quiet guest house but we would have preferred something nearer the centre of the town. The garden area and pool were delightful and the breakfasts were very good.

  • Liked — The garden and pool area.
  • Disliked — The notices posted everywhere.

Reviewed 5 October 2007

We found the accommodation via the Portfolio Collection website, when looking for accommodation in Hermanus.

Overall a good standard of accommodation if a little dated. The accommodation is clean and tidy, but gives the impression of being stuck in the 1980s from a decoration and management approach point of view.

The rooms all face around a pool area which is very nice and clean, very inviting for a dip if you have the time - but we didn't.

The owners/management are a little over the top with the notices to do this and don't do that. Not the most friendly hosts we met on our SA holiday, but not difficult either - just a typical B&B host and hostess.

We asked for recommendations for an evening meal , but received no real recommendations, just a couple of suggestions - one was a fish and chip place (Ocean Basket) and the other which we tried (The Burgundy) was a restaurant on the front in the centre of town - we were very disappointed with this restaurant and we and other diners complained about the meals.

The breakfast was good, but we had to fill out a plastic form with a wax pencil and again it felt a little too controlling and not at all relaxed.

  • Liked — Pool area
  • Disliked — Too many notices about what to do and what not to do
