"Had an amazing weekend at Abalone Lodges. Extremely comfortable with an amazing view. Would definitely revisit. We got more than we expected keep it up!"


"Close to everything"

(South Africa) Anonymous | 25 October 2017

"The space is a bit cramped and right next to the other units. Cutlery wasn't clean. The booking.com experience to book the unit was terrible. All aggravated by a terrible booking experience from Safarinow."

"We stayed at Abalone Lodges for 1 night as a stop-over and were surprised by the size and cleanliness of the wooden lodge. The wooden style creates a cozy atmosphere which separates them from the other obvious choices of accommodation. The laggos view is not so spectacular as it is compromised by other premises in front of it but can be spotted from the first floor balcony. The kitchen was fully equipped and clean."


"Stayed with my daughter - fantastic"

"Lovely helpful staff and beautiful views."


"Great views"

"We stayed for three nights in November in a semi detached lodge. The room was spotlessly clean and the bathroom with spa bath lovely - only thing missing was a shower if you wanted a quick wash. There was a shower attachment on the bath but only suitable for washing your hair. The room was compact but there was a table and two chairs on the balcony which would have been lovely to sit on if the weather was good. Would visit again."


"Relaxing"

(South Africa) Gaylene Ford | 14 October 2013

"This is very clean and comfortable accommodation. It is so nice to be able to relax on the balcony and look out at the great view. Loved the bath, and definitely can recommend this as a 'pleasurable experience'. Much Thanks to the friendly staff. "

"The lodges are really nicely designed around a family's needs. The kitchen is well suited to make small and even larger meals, and is a inviting place for a 'Team-Breakfast'. Rooms and baths are very inviting. Definitively a place to come back to.

(South Africa) Mr Smith | 21 April 2015

"I had a good stay at Abalone Lodges. It was clean and the staff were friendly. We had a small problem with the bath that was leaking and they were more than willing to fix it for us. We stayed there a few years ago and had a good time, we had an equally good time this time around."

"My family and I spent 4 nights at Abalone Lodges during September and absolutely loved it! Initially we were sceptical, as authentic wooden lodges are generally unkempt and unpleasant. Abalone Lodges was the complete opposite - the lodges are beautifully maintained and cosy, with some of the most spectacular lagoon views I have ever witnessed! The kitchen was fully equipped, the beds unbelievably comfortable, and the bathroom was just bliss (bathing was possibly my favourite activity during our stay in Knysna). The rates are also fantastic, considering how magnificent the lodges are. I would definitely stay at Abalone Lodges again."


"First Class!"

(South Africa) T. Naidoo | 17 July 2012

"Thank you very much for the wonderful stay.
The lodges are really 5 star with all the best for self-catering.
Lodge is in immaculate condition and very clean!!
We were a family of 8 and did not feel cramped at all, very spacious and lovely view.
Will definitely come again!!! "


"Bit of luxury in a beautiful location"

(United Kingdom) Sean Manning | 23 May 2012

"Abalone lodges was brilliant. We had a self-catering cottage with views over the Knysna lagoon, just 5 minutes from the town and waterfront. Our cottage was very well equipped and comfortable and the staff were very helpful, friendly and professional. What a find!"


"Great value for money"

(Germany) Moehrle | 25 January 2012

"It is a beautiful place with stunning views over the lagoon. Especially the bathroom, it was impressive!"

Every bungalow has its own braai area and there is also a very small swimming pool for the guests of the lodge. The service was very good and helpful."


"Lovely Getaway"

(South Africa) Mr Estima | 12 January 2010

"We spent a long weekend at the Abalone Lodge. It was very nice, a bit small however. The room was very clean and the view of the lagoon is excellent. I would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting a nice escape from the city."

We enjoyed the lodges being serviced daily!

Only two suggestions. Perhaps some bushes could be planted against the back fences and between the braais and it would be really cool if a braai area could be built at the pool so that we could have a braai there while the kiddies are swimming.

I have no doubt - we will be back!
Thank you!"


"Very nice stay"

(Netherlands) Mr Du Plessis | 24 September 2009
