The Whale Coast All Suite Hotel
Ranked #3 of 11 Hotels in Hermanus
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 August 2013

My family used to live in Hermanus so we were locals and really grew to love this beautiful town. Returning for a weekend getaway every now and then is a priority on my calendar, and we are so glad to have stayed at the Whale Coast Hotel...it will definately be our go-to accommodation from now on as it feels like a home away from home. Reservations, to check-in, the porters and cleaners, everyone is friendly and helpful! The apartments are spacious, clean, beautifully decorated and the beds are super comfortable. Everything still looks shiny and new, and my son said 'this is the best vacation spot we've ever stayed at'. Being inside a mall means the shops are right on your doorstep for self-catering purchases, it is centrally located to restaurants, beach and the old harbour (whale watching spots) so we walked everywhere and the usual parking problem is immediately sorted out. We were thoroughly impressed with the hotel and I'm very excited about our next trip to Hermanus...whenever that may be!

Staying at the Whale Coast Hotel, was one of the most pleasant vacations we had in ages. The adage, location, location, location, is definitely one that springs to mind when staying here. Within walking distance to the beach, walks and ABOVE a shopping mall, what more can I say! The rooms are nice and spacious the whole apartment well equipped and we even had a BBQ on the balcony in the fireplace set up for that purpose! the Kitchen is fully equipped for those wanting a bit of home cooked meals or on a budget, but with sooo many fantastic restaurants in the area who would want to! The Rates for staying here are impressive!!! Fantastic value for money!! Also the staff are very helpful and willing to go the extra mile for you!

A great unwinding experience with the family at these well appointed, very comfortably furnished apartments. It was a bit disconcerting arriving in a shopping mall but any reservations about the location were swept away as it did not detract from a great relaxing experience. In fact, it proved convenient to be able to pop down to the supermarket for some snacks & drinks.Close to all the excellent restaurants in the heart of Hermanus. We will be back for sure!

We enjoyed our stay at the Whale Coast. It had lots of room for 5 people and was situated above a shopping centre. Although we only stayed 1 night we would have liked to be able to stay longer. The massive kitchen was very well supplied and would be great for a longer stay.
Next time we wouldn't choose breakfast from what we were offered. We would just choose our own and pay when at the cafe. The cafe were very slow, they took an hour to prepare our breakfast! Overall we would highly recommend a stay here.

We booked into the Whale Coast Hotel for 2 nights mid-week and absolutely loved it. The apartment was spotless and modern with lovely views and good walking distance from the beach front and restaurants. I would highly recommend it.

With many of the deals you get on these special/discount websites, you never really know what you're going to get. We arrived at the apartments and were slightly perplexed as we arrived at a shopping mall...?

However, that's where the perplexity ended. We were ushered to the (seamless) check-in desk and accompanied to the apartment. And boy were we in for a surprise! The apartment is tastefully decorated with everything that you need - down to the baby gates at the top and bottom of the stairs they installed specially for us (we have 2 kids still in the small numbers).

The rooms are spacious with lots of cupboard space and the novelty of having 2 en-suite bathrooms rather than just one to share was great.

The close proximity of everything that we needed ensured that we didn't have to use our car at all during the trip. Checkers was downstairs and Woolworths is literally across the road. The ocean is a short 5 minute walk and we leisured and lazed in the playpark by the restaurants on the promenade. We could go for a walk on the cliff's edge and was even blessed by a whale bobbing in waves right in front of us.

At first we were concerned that the noise from the mall would wake us, but that too was misplaced - we slept like babies. And the mall provided us with the opportunity to also get in some retail therapy.

We had a very pleasant stay and highly recommend these apartments to people who want to explore Hermanus and stay centrally. Parking does become a problem in town especially during whale season so the benefit of not having to use our car was huge.

A note to the owners - the only thing missing from the apartment, was a good frying pan.

All in all, very happy. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Very nice upmarket modern unit ; the only small gripe was the Wi-Fi didn't work in our unit (001) presumably because we were furthest away from reception ? However, we were offered use of unit 002 to get Wi-Fi. Would stay again.
