My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon travelling along the garden route. The house is gorgeous and very grand. There's a terrace to sit out on and the views are amazing. We were lucky that it wasn't busy when we stayed (end of August) so our room got upgraded to a front room which had a sea view.

The couple who run the guest house are very friendly. The man (sorry can't remember his name) was very chatty and gave us some advice on where to go in Hermanus.

The only downside we experienced was that our room was freezing. The temperature wasn't hot anyway due to the time of year and the room had minimal heating. It was front facing so had the full force of the sea breeze and it was quite windy when we stayed. There was a little heater in the bathroom and a small electric heater in the bedroom but they didn't help much. We ended up sat in bed to keep warm.

The house is spotlessly clean and the breakfast was lovely. The staff were very friendly. The bed in our room was very comfortable. There's also an honesty bar to use in the communal area. It's very close to the beach which also has a lovely restaurant called Dutchies which we ate at. I would definitely recommend that.

Without any hesitations I would recommend this hotel. It is a beautiful, cozy, smaller hotel, in which you will feel like home. The owner is incredibly polite and helpful with any information. I had a room with the ocean view which was really magnificent. The room it self was very cozy, with a special atmosphere. If you book a room without ocean view you can use a common room/bar upstairs with the same fantastic view. In the neighborhood there is a good restaurant recommended by Lavender Manor. The restaurant will not disappoint you.
Overall, it is worth to stay at Lavender Manor

We stayed for 2 nights in room 1, which was beautiful with a small balcony and views across the bay. We could see the whales from our room. The whole atmosphere is relaxed and nothing is too much trouble, there is a guest honesty bar where you can help yourself and it has fantastic views, with a roaring fire too! Breakfast was fab with eggs cooked to perfection. The owners were very knowledgeable of the area and gave us tips on places to eat (Lisettes and Dutchies on the beach) which were both fab. They also told us of a quiet area from which to watch the whales. Thoroughly recommend a stay.

We stayed for three nights at Lavender Lodge and cannot fault it. The owners are so helpful and welcoming and the staff are great. The views from the loyalty bar are second to none and breakfast was delicious. I would definitely recommend this place!
