I like the fact that Baleens is a few km out of town as it resides in a quiet neighbourhood and is within walking distance to Grotto beach. It seems as if Hermanus is becoming a haven for teenagers (along with all the tourists) and the downtown/waterfront area is very busy and noisy--so it was nice to stay away from the throngs of people. The breakfast was simple but good, and the coffee was always fresh and strongly brewed. With regard to our room, it was neat, although the staff could do a better job cleaning the walls and ceilings and the tiles in the shower were a bit grotty. The kids loved the place, especially the games room with the Foosball and ping pong table. We would definitely come back to Baleens.
