“Stylish Boutique Guest House”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2014

Just spent the last two nights of our trip here and would highly recommend. Beluga House is a very easy stroll into town or along the cliff path. Although the room was fairly small, it had everything we needed and the pool area was lovely. Lotta was very helpful and the place was spotless. Would definitely book here again.

Our family of five persons spent our two last days in South Africa at Beluga House and it was a great experience. The warm welcome from Lotta and the cosy and tranquil atmosphere was so nice after a day full of activities. The rooms were comfortable and beautifully decorated and the bathrooms big. The poolarea was very tasteful and the honesty bar nice. Because of early activities we did not have any breakfast. The first morning we had breakfast in Kleinsbaai before shark diving and the last morning we had to leave early for our flight. However, Lotte was very kind and prepared sandwiches, youghurt and cereals which was highly appreciated. The location of this B&B is a short and beautiful 10 min walking distance to the town center of Hermanus with a great range of restaurants. The beaches are a short drive away. We would love to come back and give Beluga House our very best recommendations!

Stayed here for 2 nights in November and enjoyed our stay. However, whilst the property is very stylish it does lack in a number of practical areas.

The rooms are on the small side with no real space for storage of luggage. A lack of plug points means that hair drying is almost impossible. Most rooms face the public pool area which can cause problems with privacy.

The property is beautiful though and the pool area is very nice. The breakfast is good albeit a little slow and the earliest breakfast at 8.45am is too late if one wants to do an early trip.

Check in is not possible before 2pm and must be done before 5pm. This is a little restrictive and would appear to be adhered to rigidly. The welcome was a little on the cool side too.

With a little effort a good property could be turned into an excellent option in Hermanus.

We stayed for only one night at this B&B and were satisfied with the room and the service. Our room was rather small, but o.k. for a one-night stay. Might be to small if you carry a lot of luggage, but there are other rooms that offer more space. Anyway, the rooms are clean, modern and comfortably. We missed some AC or fan as it got pretty warm inside at night - so had to leave the door open.
Breakfast is o.k., choices are sufficient. The pool, pool area and lounge area are spacious and nice for a sundowner drink. If you want to take a walk thru the cliffs there's a small path to it opposite the house. For joggers you can do your daily run and enjoy the views.For dinner you can walk along the cliffs downtown in 10-15 min.

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.
