Auberge Burgundy
Ranked #17 of 87 Hermanus B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 October 2012

We stayed 3 nights and enjoyed our stay. The location could not be more convenient to the town, restaurants and as for the Whales we watched them breaching, tail slapping from our balcony....not bad eh! Breakfast across the road at the Burgundy restaurant was fab, with excellent food and service.

Stayed only one night at this Hotel for the whale-watching, but found it to be eminently comfortable, beautifully clean, and our room, at the front of the Hotel, was large, very well appointed, and very French. Truly delightful. Meals were taken at the Auberge Restaurant across the road, which was also excellent.

Location perfect, This is a guest house with character and comfort. It has a charming little sitting room, and a small garden courtyard. If you are driving along the garden route this inn makes a change from hotels and although you have to cross the street to get breakfast you do enjoy a look at the sea as you do so. We came to see the whales in Hermanus - and were pleased to say they were there, just across the street from the Auberge.

After browsing through tripadvisor and reading numerous reviews I finally decided to book at Auberge Burgandy. I really wanted somewhere centrally located and within walking distance to shops, restaurants, markets and the most popular whale viewing areas. Auberge Burgandy provided all of this and more. I was very pleased and would highly recommend Auberge Burgandy to all the people I know. A lot of the B & B’s including the number 1 rated B & B are located away from central Hermanus which means you would have to drive everywhere. From the booking to our departure Esme and the staff were fantastic.

I booked two garden rooms as they were easily accessible for my mother and elderly grandparents (less stairs) while my husband and I stayed in a pool suite. The rooms were gorgeous. I really can’t understand why people complained about the furniture etc in previous posts as everything was lovely. I really liked the fact there were walk in closets and we had more than enough space to put our clothes and things. They were kind enough to provide milk and tea and coffee making facilities for free (including a coffee press for those who don’t drink instant coffee). The suite was great because it had a little kitchen with everything you could possible need. We also had a fireplace and they also provided everything you would need to make a fire.

We were in the corner suite and had a view of the bay but didn’t bring binoculars so couldn’t really see the whales from our balcony. Other people with balconies nearby had binoculars and had a good view of the whales. However when we were having breakfast in the outdoor seating area of ‘The Burgandy’ restaurant there were 5 whales playing in the sea directly in front of us. The breakfast was lovely and I really liked the location. It was not a buffet or anything so if you are expecting to gorge yourself you will be sorely disappointed. You can order anything on the breakfast menu and have a coffee/tea and an orange juice. My family ordered different things from smoked salmon to a normal English style breakfast and we were all very happy.

I would describe Auberge as more of a boutique hotel with rooms and suites than a B&B. It wasn’t like you were staying in someone’s house where they cook you a homemade breakfast. If you are expecting that you should book elsewhere.

On a side note if you have want to eat out at a restaurant at the weekend they get fully booked quickly. We didn’t book and were lucky to get a table at our chosen restaurant.

We, family, stayed for one night in Hermanus as part of our 2 week S Africa tour. This is a beautiful guest house, with stunning rooms fabulous decorated and with great character. We had two rooms in the 'courtyard' area adjacent to the main house and swimming pool.
Very good service, - though your breakfast is taken at restaurant on the other side of the road - very good too.
Location is excellent - they have parking on site, and whole town is walkable - and you can literally see the whales from your bedroom door. Hermanus is a delightful spot - dozens of whales around on the day we visited which of course helped, and weather superb too.
Would certainly recommend this accommodation to anyone.

Room Tip: The two room s we had between us were both excellent furnished, spotlessly clean and with lots of ch...

Perfectly situated within walking distance of town and wonderful harbour. The hotel's gardens are a treat and their rooms perfectly adequate for an 'Auberge'. They make no pretence that they are a 5 star hotel, however to not stay here you will be missing out of one of the experiences Hermanus offers!

We arrived in Hermanus after a long drive and were greeted warmly. The receptionist recommended some things to do nearby and a lovely spot for lunch down by the sea. Our room was gorgeous with lovely airy and relaxed decor, sitting room area and balcony with views of the sea. It is very centrally located too. We had such a great time relaxing in the room we decided to make the most of it and get takeaway and drink lovely local wines on the balcony. Lovely area downstairs too with books and sherry and port. Made our holiday.

Room Tip: The balcony rooms are great
