Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 January 2014

A top place to stay with lovely friendly staff and fabulous host - would definately recommend and stay there again.
Close to Gansbaai for shark Diving, and a great base for the Hermanus area. Good games room and very reasonably priced.The Italian restaurant in town is worth a visit too - authentic!

it was worth the money to stay with u,except for the stains on the ceiling and curtains in room 6.the destination out of town is also far but it is in a quit area so that makes up for that.I must mention the front desk attentands is very friendly and makes u feel at home at Baleens,so that`s why i would go back there.

Recently we stayed two nights at Baleens Guesthouse; fine room, excellent breakfast and super service by owner and other staff members. Good advice on local restaurants. We can recommend Baleens to everyone.

I stayed here during a cycling holiday over Christmas and New year. I guess a disadvantage of is hotel is its distance, 6k, from the centre off Hermanus. You do need a car, bicycle or good walking legs. That said the cliff walk to Hermanus is spectacular and exhilerating and the excellent Grotto Beach is close by.

The owner gave our party of 11 a very warm welcome. I echo what others have said about the breakfast, great choice and great quality. The room was fine, quite spacious, good sleep quality and everything worked.

Room Tip: We were on the ground floor. I think those on the higher floors looking towards the beach probably...

Great service overall with a great sea view from the room and its just 6km from town so you can go have a great time, a few metres from the beach so you can go back as late as you like, definately reccommendable

A friendly and a nice african atmosphere. Close to the beach and just a few kilometers from the center and the restaurants. So you need a car or call the tuk-tuk in the evenings. Good breakfast and helpful service.

We loved this B&B- great location, friendly service, reasonable price, delicious food! We enjoyed a walk along the nearby beach, and a visit to the charming town of Hermanus just a short drive away! Will be sure to come back!
