We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Whale Coast Lodge.  Cheryl was very friendly, helpful and obliging. Nothing was too much trouble and she went out of her way to make our stay comfortable. A bit of sprucing up needs to be done but she assured us this is going to be happening this year. We will definitely come back. Thank you for a lovely rest.

Guest house is very average in terms of furnishing and quality. We alsoreserved a room for two children and one adult and were provided with a roomwith only a double bed. The manager did not know how to deal with this situationand the idea that she should find another bed / stretcher (or buy one) wascompletely foreign to her.Some of the other guests in the house alsothought it was a good idea to start a party in the garden at 3am.Suggest you stay somewhere else

Unfortunately we were moved to the Guest House as they had a burst pipe in the room we were originally booked into. They were extremely apologetic for the move, but had made an excellent alternate plan, so our stay was short but we were well looked after. The room was well appointed, had plenty of space and was neat and clean. Overall a very good place to stay.

Our stay was spoilt by the fact that the unit next door was rented out to a group of men that had a very rowdy party right through the night and the management was powerless to stop them. We were promised a refund but unfortunately they didn't keep their word.

Comfortable room, friendly staff. But the room we were given was noisy as the window faced the reception gate though which  new guests were arriving, so afternoon naps were out.  The bathroom was in a state of repair with cracked shower and incomplete concrete work. We were also locked out at night and had to phone for help
