In their PR the lodge mentioned that you can stay at you balcony o see the whales but it was at least 300 m to the see. And at least 9 km från the city without any restaurants in the near. We got very disappointed and choose to leave the hotel in spite we hade to pay. We found a very nice hotel just oppesite the ocean.
False information I couldn´t have seen a whale from that distance. Not every hotel in Hermanus can see whales an dolphins.
We only stayed two nights at the Lavender Manor, but we could happily of stayed longer if our travel plans had allowed. Our lovely hosts immediately made us feel welcome and at home. The bedroom was roomy, clean and very comfortable with immaculate crisp white linen on the bed. This was our first visit to South Africa, but the welcome and hospitality which we received at the Lavender Manor was typical of all that is best about this beautiful country. We sincerely hope to return in the not too distant future.
We were very impressed with the accommodation which was a large double room with a great ensuite facility along with a timber decked balcony. All the facilities that you wouldrequire were on hand in our room and the house was open to guests and this was also excellently furnished and very comfortable. The honesty bar was a revelation - greta place.

The personal welcome, wonderful room, beautiful attention to detail with the use of Lavender and little personal touches.
I liked the views from both balconies.also the size of the room and the peaceful surroundings.
