“Great service and location”
Reviewed 18 February 2014

We just spent one night at the Harbour House and would strongly recommend the location, service and general ambience.
Unfortunately it rained on the main day, so we could not try the very inviting pool and sun loungers. The room was modern, clean and welcoming (the only negative a leaking shower door) and we would definitely return.
As we were returning home that day, Mariane (the Manageress) even found us a room that we could use until 6.00pm, which was great...and very kind (although in the end we travelled early to find some sun).
Many thanks!

Would have loved to have stayed longer. The staff and hotel were excellent. Hermanus is a great place to visit. Had a great walk along the cliffs path in early evening - such fabulous views. Will live long in our memory.

We spent six nights in this delightful hotel. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The hotel is well managed, in an ideal location in the heart of Hermanus, with views across the bay to rival any anywhere! We were loathe to leave as the staff were so courteous, helpful and efficient. We will certainly hope to return for much longer next time.

We would have loved to have stayed here longer but only booked in for one night. It's a lovely place with great rooms and sea views. It wasn't warm enough to use the pool which was a shame. We had dinner there and that was good too. If we visit this area again I would definitely stay here again.

What a hotel, just a pity we were only here for one night. The penthouse room was beautifully furnished and well equiped. A small balcony gave a view of the ocean. Breakfast made to your order and hotel staff charming. Good quality restaurants in walking distance.

Room Tip: Judging from the room we were given I would imagine any room would be good quality and if not the st...

An excellent location in the very centre of Hermanus with wonderful views of the coastline, fully supported by friendly staff and great facilities. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and strongly recommend that you choose this hotel when planning a trip to this area.

Stayed in this fantastic hotel 29th & 30th Jan and booked as 'walk-in'guests. We managed to get our room -the last one available for these 2 nights. Room very clean , modern and comfortable - the only downside being the balcony overlooking the car park though at such short notice couldn't grumble! Pool area was lovely, overlooking the sea - only separated by the road - great for people-watching! Thoroughly enjoyed breakfast - better the first morning than the second, probably down to waiting staff on second morning and backlog in kitchen as we were told only 1 chef on duty. On the first night ate in a small restaurant called 'the Bistro' - great meal and attentive staff. The second night we ate in restaurant opposite the hotel 'Burgundy' - again a lovely meal but had to book as tried there the first night but fully booked.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wish we'd been there longer. Would certainly recommend this place and definitely stay again.
