A truly wonderful location and an old hotel which in places shows its age but work seems ongoing. Generally well staffed by helpful people. There are other plus factors, a beautiful breakfast room with generous and good quality breakfasts. Rooms are clean and comfortable and wi fi is very good. On the minus side, and very much to our disappointment...

Absolutely the best hotel in Hermanus. The staff are so friendly and very accommodating. We took my sister and brother-in-law, who are visiting from Scotland with us and they really enjoyed their stay. We will be back soon. Linda & Duncan

As regular guests for the past 10 years, we always felt at home in the Windsor Hotel. And the staff plays an important role in this regard. Thank you all. One little niggle though: unpleasant cold white light bulbs; warm white would make the rooms so much more cosy at night.

This hotel is so gorgeous we just kept taking pictures from the window in our room - looking out onto the ocean straight from your room is just incredible. The hotel itself has the feel of a historical monument, so classic and elegant. We had some dietary requirements and the staff was exceptionally accommodating. We absolutely loved staying at the...

We liked staying at Hermanus's Windsor Hotel with its sea front location, attentive staff and amazing breakfast room with views over the ocean. It has a good car park at the back and a reputation stretching back over a hundred years. But our room (at the back) was small, un-airconditioned and without a fridge. Also adjacent building work meant the...

Really amazing stay, old fashioned hotel. Loved the furniture. Slept well listening to the waves as you fall asleep and awoke. So close to all the amendments in town. Had a wonderful experience and stunning weekend and will be back

We have stayed at this 3 star hotel 4 times and we have found it a very relaxing hotel each time we have been here. The view is excellent and it is very convenient for the centre of town. Plenty of parking and the breakfast which is included in the price is very good. The staff are always very helpful....

Awesome sea view. Friendly staff with great service. So relaxing. Home away from home. We have been going to Windsor Hotel and 45 Marine Drive for many years. After a weekend in Hermanus you feel like a new person.
