Reviewed 9 August 2011

What a wonderful, warm experience - from the totally professional, helpful and friendly staff to the beautiful decor, the picturesque setting and the breath-taking views of the bay. As an added bonus, what an awesome and touching sight it was to witness, from a mere few hundred metres away, a Southern Right Whale and her newly-born calf frolic in the waves. The staff are to be highly commended - they were like a breath of fresh air! It was fantastic to be so warmly greeted, eagerly assisted, and made to feel completely "at home". Our advice, when visiting Hermanus, is definitely look no further - Misty Waves will not disappoint!

Dear Guest

We appreciate your positive response. Thank you so much!
Our guests totally love the whales frolicking in front of the hotel. I am so glad you could enjoy it as well. Thank you once again for your comments!

The Misty Waves Hotel has a registered trademark: "Lie in bed and watch the whales" and with good reason. However our area has so much more to offer the visitors.
Thank you also to all the other guests responding! You cannot imagine how much excitement it creates amongst the personnel. As soon as the Duty Manager inform the staff that they received a response it almost creates chaos as everybody wants to read the response!
It is a highlight of the day, and urge personnel to even excel. Misty Waves is well-known for the excellent service of their personnel.

Thanks again

Manager

Having been made aware of the room special via an advert in the Burger we booked for a short weekend stay to get away from the city hustle and bustle. From the ease of booking to the checking out we could not fault the service provided from all at Misty Waves. Sam of the front office however deserves a special mention.

We had booked a normal room but when a large group of ladies booked into rooms close to us Sam being proactive and concerned that we would be bothered by possible noise moved us to a room that would have cost more than double what would have paid.
Normally one would have had to complain for this to happen. Well done Sam.

Of course we felt rather special in our new room not that there was anything lacking in the original room but nonetheless you get very good and then you get really good.

We decided to eat in at the Indian restuarant. What a good choice. The food and service was the equal of any of the fancy curry places in Cape Town. A real gem.

The hotel is well placed and we did not need to use the car during our stay as everything was within walking distance.

Hermanus is a great little town to explore on foot, what with the coastal walk and the quant little shops to explore.

So if you are needing a break and wish to be spoilt, give the folk at Misty Waves a call and let them do the rest.

Easy online booking with variety of accomodation options to choose from. As we were a couple with a 13 year old, we had the perfect suite which allowed for privacy. Beautiful sea view from lounge area in room. Delicious English breakfast every morning with stunning view of the bay. Thanks to Sam for arranging 2 heaters for our rooms when arriving on that cold, rainy afternoon! Will definately return.

Room Tip: Rooms on first and second level have stunning view

Stayed here in Feb for a weekend break visiting the wine farms. We booked one of the fisherman's cottage suites but were upgraded to a lovely suite in the hotel. Rooms are absolutely lovely with fresh flowers brought every evening. Breakfast excellent. Indian restaurant to be recommended

Writing this somewhat retrospectively as its a Hotel that we felt passionate about. We loved this place so much that we returned a month later ...
Clinton, Natasha, Norah, and his totally friendly and efficient staff really go out of their way to make us at home ...beautiful rooms ( to rival the Marine Hotel)amazing sea views with fantastic en-suites and hearty breakfasts conspired to make the perfect stay.
Particularly helpful was advice regarding dining out and about and things to do.
There are lots of dining options within walking distance... Ocean Basket delicious seafood and wines at a very reasonable price. Misty Waves of an evening provides authentic Indian food absolutely delicious with wholesome portions.
Treated ourselves to the most delicious cocktails at the Marine Hotel (prices to stay 3 times more than Misty Waves) uber cool lounge with great seaviews..
Particularly noteworthy was the trip they booked for us to fly along the coast (African Wings) Evan the pilot met us so very friendy (great commentary) ... we taxied to take off through a vineyard ...then it was up and away he even managed to find us some whales swimming with their calf's...it is a journey that will stay with us forever....beyond spectacular. There are some great swimming beaches 10mins drive
Free internet access a boon.
Would recommend that you stay here ...

We booked at Misty's for our honeymoon which should have happened beginning of April. Unfortunately we had to phone and inform them that due to unforseen circumstances we could not make the booked dates. They went out of their way to accommodate us at a later stage which was really special.

The location of the hotel is great. The view is spectacular to say the least. The room was so spacious and had such a lovely feel of warmth to it. Not to mention the spa bath and bubbly followe by a lovely chocolate fondue. The Indian restaurant served lovely dinners. Breakfast was also great and the friendly staff made it even more enjoyable.

The staff really made us feel so special and it was such a pleasure that we actually extended our stay with them.

A very big thank you to everyone at Misty's and we will most definitely be seeing you again!
