First of all the location is spot on, you can not get any better in Hermanus. It is in walking distance of the shops, which is already very convenient, but it is also accross probably the best restaurant in Hermanus, Burgundy (see my other review). Our room also overlooked the bay, which was amazing watching the sun set and rise from your balcony gave it an extra touch.
The room was very modern and had everything we required, we were so happy that we extended our stay by a night, unfortunately we couldn't stay in the same room, but the second rooms was even more to our liking. There the only downside was that we could hear people passing our room and hearing them talk during breakfast.
The staff were very friendly and helpfull. On our first night we had a lovely chat with Prince, who is a gem, very funny, so cheerful and motivated. It is nice to see people actually enjoying their jobs.
Breakfast was outstanding, the buffet was beautiful and fresh, with the choice of many items available. Their muffins stood out for me, tasting of caramel and still warm when you grab them, they were delicious. They also come to your table to take your hot-breakfast order.
This place is a bit more expensive, but we found it to be totally worth our money and when we return we will book here again, 100% value for money.
