What a great place to stay in hermanus! Situated right on the cliffs of hermanus for 24/7 whale watching from the lounge and bedroom windows, you can access both the cliff path from the front and the town from the back within a few minutes. The breakfast is outstanding: great omlettes, freshly cut fruit, properly ripened cheese and fresh muffins...

Would have liked a proper coffee. Waitre did not know a latte or cappuccino. Tv in the room was not working! Otherwise the service was very good. The location is great. The rooms are very basic. No stopper on curtain rail. Had to hang the curtains as it was all on the floor after i tried to open it!

An unpretentious, comfortable hotel, where the waves almost visit the front door. The room in the annex had no view, however the bed was comfortable, the room practical and the shower water hot. Despite the chaos in the lobby sorting rooms for a tour group, our check-in was efficient and friendly. The location allowed easy access to the restaurants and...

this is a very homely well run hotel. I have been going for many years, and always go back. The position is outstanding, and you can walk everywhere. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay.........a real gem. Had a room with a sea view. The breakfast can be called brunch, as you do not need to eat until dinner time.

It was my first visit to your Hotel and I will definitely make use of your guys again in future. It is so central and me and my family felt safe and warm through our whole stay. We were in one of the annexures due to the silly season but still will enjoyed very much.
