Cape Town Central, South Africa2 contributions
We had a great stay at the hotel and Petrus and Thabisa were amazing, they really went out of their way to ensure we had the best stay with our children (3 and 8 months). Nothing was too much for then. The food was delicious - the breakfast spread was impressive (even pancakes for the little ones) and the dinners were very tasty too. Great pool to cool off in too! Will definitely be back next time we are in that area.

My family and had a two day stay over at Whalesong between 26-27 Dec 2020. Our stop over was on route to our next holiday destination and didn’t have much expectations. To say we were blown away from the minute we arrived is an understatement. The hotel staff treated us like royalty, accommodating every whim and the world class chefs in the kitchen made us wish we had stayed longer. I hope every visitor has the same superb experience and want to publicly praise the management and team of Whalesong Hotel & Spa for their World class service. The Diamond Family

My husband and I enjoyed the Hotel very much. The staff are superb and go out of their way to make your experience unforgettable. A personal touch makes it feel like home away from home! The food is outstanding and the Chef personally came to take our orders and make suggestions. Gin tasting is an absolute must. The General Manager is well trained, friendly and very chatty. Andries and Thandi excellent service and couldn’t do enough for us. Personalized postcards were left in our room for both Christmas and Condolences due the lost of a close family member. We wanted to extend our stay and were sad to leave. Clean rooms, comfy beds and excellent views. Close to town and very friendly. If you are looking to book, look now further you will be pleasantly surprised.
