About Hortensia Lodge

Hortensia Lodge® is ideally situated near the picturesque Old Harbour. Hortensia Lodge offers spacious and comfortable bedrooms in a quiet area within walking distance of the Hermanus Waterfront featuring shops, boutiques and restaurants. Each morning you will wake to bird song and not be woken up by traffic noise.

Accommodation

Hortensia Lodge, set in secluded gardens with sparkling pool offers 4 spacious double bedrooms - all en-suite - in a quiet upmarket area of town.

All bedrooms have access to the gardens. The 2 large garden rooms (30sqm) have a queen bed and twin bed(s) with a possibility of a sleeper couch for a third person. The rooms in the main house, one with bath the other with shower, have twin and double bed respectively. All rooms have hair dryer, fan heater, coffee tray, radio alarm, wall safe, TV, and of course comfortable beds with fine bed linen.

Facilities

The public rooms are spacious and well appointed. The interior of Hortensia Lodge is spotlessly clean and guests comment favourably on the interior décor. Sumptious breakfasts are served on an elegantly laid table.

The public grounds of Hortensia Lodge are an oasis in the village. Blooming shrubs and manicured lawns with Hortensias (hydrangea hortensis) blooming in profusion are a delight to the senses. Indigenous shrubs attract a variety of birds.

Safe off road parking is available on the property. Smoking is permitted outdoors and children over 14 are welcome. Exceptions are made if younger children are able to swim as the salt water pool is not fenced.

Location

Hortensia Lodge is ideally situated for all those guests who like to get around without using their motor car too often. Golf course, shops, restaurants, the Hermanus Waterfront, the famous cliff-top path along the ocean are all within 500 metres of the Lodge. And so is whale watching (June to November) when the giants of the ocean are plentiful in our Bay.

Verified reviewexcellent

Hortensia Lodge is brilliantly situated, it's only a short walk to town or to the beach. After a day spent at the beach or seeing the many marvels of Hermanus I got back to the comfort of my cozy, bright room at the lodge. The garden is spectacular with all the hortensias, spacious and beautifully kept and the large pool just adds to the pleasure of spending time there. The staff is efficient and helpful. Rolf, the owner is always helpful and extremely knowledgeable about all Hermanus has to offer, be it art galleries or the many beautiful nature spots
