Whalesong Lodge, De Kelders
Loved Whalesong Lodge
What a lovely property. We highly recommend Whalesong Lodge. Great location, friendly hosts and delicious breakfast. A wonderful quiet spot next to the sea.

Whalesong Lodge, De Kelders
This place is amazing
We stayed here for two nights and had a suite. If you stay here you must get a suite. The view of the sea is amazing with the large windows across the front of the room. If you don't have a suite you can still get the same view from the communal balcony downstairs. The staff are very sweet. Breakfast is good. It is continental but they also cook egg and bacon to order for you. It is located on a really quiet but safe area along with a few other holiday residences so it is completely quiet. For eating of an evening they book you a table at the local restaurant which is excellent and very cheap. We also ate in Hermanus which about 30 minutes away. The room was spotlessly clean and we loved the truffles they left every night. There is also an honesty bar.

Fab location
Lovely hosts very friendly and amazing views. Saw more whales from the hotel balcony than from the whale watching boat. Downside no door on loo or bathroom, so unless you don't mind hearing your partner on the toilet this room is not for you.
