What a view!!! The Windsor Hotel looks out onto the ocean. We were there just before whale season officially started but apparently there was one whale swimming about the morning of our arrival.
Our room was lovely overlooking the ocean. Yes the Windsor is a little old and perhaps a little tired looking, but that is the beauty of the place. My husband and I took the time to wander around and check out the old paintings and find out some history of the hotel. Incredible. There are more modern hotels in Hermanus but none with the character of the Windsor.
The staff were very accommodation and friendly and the breakfast (which was part of our accommodation) could not be faulted.
It is very central to the markets and restaurants. We enjoyed our two day stay.
