“Awesome Guest House”
Reviewed 26 December 2011

My 4 night-stay at Harbour Vue was fantastic. The Fynbos room was great and Barry, the manager, was very helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for him and he really went out of his way to make my stay great. I would definitely recommend this guest house to everyone.

We had a room to the court, but it was no problem for us because most of our time we were outside watching whales.
It is a tastfully furnished house in a vintage style.
Great breakfast with ocean view!
Barry the manager put his heart and soul in it, he is everywere and always in a good temper. We enjoyed our stay.

Our room had an amazing view of the ocean, with a bit of luck you'd even be able to see whales from your own balcony! The guest house is also right next to the famous "whale walk" from where one can be sure to spot whales.
Barry, the manager, was a lot of fun and made us feel very welcome.
I would definitely recommend this guest house!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with ocean view

Barry and his team, made our stay a comfortable and enjoyable one! Fantastic breakfast! The room was amazing, with a fabulous view across to the new harbour. Very comfortable, huge bathroom with Spa bath!
Barry really goes the extra mile to enure you have everything you need. Great recommendation for restaurant in New Harbour - Superb food!

My family made a short trip to South Africa. We wished that we had stayed longer to explore more places and experience the beauty of the country and the warmth of the people. Harbour Vue, Hermanus was our 1st stop after getting out from Cape Town airport. It's an hour and a half drive from the airport.

we loved the view from the room - we saw whales frolicking in the water during our 2 days stay. My family loved the walk along the Cliff path (which is just opp. the guesthouse) every morning. The breakfast was excellent, service is good, location is excellent for a homely & quiet stay. Great job, Barry (the Manager who offers good advice) !

Room Tip: Take the sea facing rooms during the whale watching season from June to November.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Harbour Vue Guest House. Such a beautiful house with tranquility and the ocean in front. We liked the mountain side room. More quiet and private. Barry and the staff really took care of us like we were at home. It's only a bit far to the center, so if you want to drink a lot of wine for dinner, it would be better to arrange a cab in the evening. Breakfast was fantastic!

Room Tip: More quiet and cheaper is the mountain side, abalone. We liked it a lot. But if you want an oceanvie...
