There are other hotels of more recent construction on the beachfront at Hermanus but none offer the same secluded yet central position or the same sense of historical charm.
Service from the superb staff was excellent and the setting is sublime.
Our double room was large and quaintly designed with a large separate sunken lounge area and a side view of the sea. Floors creak, the shower leaks and while everything is clean, nothing is sterile or shiny and new. All quite fine for a romantic evening and plenty of room for a longer stay.
We tried the Pavilion for supper and the sun lounge for afternoon tea; both were terrific and quite good value for the product.

From June to September guests are able to view these majestic creatures from the comfort of their beautiful sea-facing bedroom.
