“Small rooms, nice pool area”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2013 via mobile

We have stayed in other guesthouses in Hermanus before. I had high expectations after reading the rewiews on Tripadvisor. I was a bit disaponted. The room was very small. The bathrooms had a good size, but the oversized shower did't leave much room for a basin. Average breakfast. A little variation from day to day would be nice when you stay for several nights.The pool area is very nice. So are th location, within walking distance to the restaurants.

A wonderful welcome by Lotte who was so helpful throughout our stay. Always ready with suggestions and interested to hear how things had gone. Room lovely and clean and comfortable - a few suggestions might be location of plug sockets so that you can dry hair in front of a mirror and small desk or shelf to sit at. We did feel a lack of public areas for relaxing in indoors, and breakfast was spoilt by being outside when the weather was inclement. Also breakfast (if ordering cooked) was incredibly slow. But still a lovely place to stay and the pool area is very smart and comfortable.

This was our first accommodation on the Garden Route and a great start to the vacation.

Lotta runs a great guesthouse with a friendly staff, modern, clean facilities and a great location. We were lucky to get their last room available, a triple with a newly renovated bathroom. The rooms are light, airy and nicely decorated. There is a nice pool in the middle and the breakfast is great.

The hotel is in a good location if you have a car and a short walk to the main area of the town, including a variety of restaurants.I'd be happy to stay here again.

Lotta was very accommodating with our late check-in request and made us very welcome. The giraffe room, as with all areas of the guest house, was beautifully decorated, well maintained and spotlessly clean. The facilities and quality of the fixtures and fittings were superb. The pool area is stunning. Great location - easy walk to downtown. For us, breakfast was a little too slow and laid back given that it wasn't served until 08:45, however, the quality was excellent. We can definately recommend Beluga House.

Traveling solo I recently stayed at Beluga House. Very clean and nicely appointed rooms. Room not large but very pretty. Great location - easy walk to downtown. Breakfast was nice fruit salad, yogurt, assorted bread and cereal. Also eggs bacon on request. Great coffee

Only negative was the room I was in only had small bathroom window - no way to get any ventilation. No ac and the room was little stuffy. There is a portable fan that was quite noisy. Very limited tv stations but that was ok. Pool is very nice - most rooms open on to pool
