I would like to say that my stay was certainly a memorable one. The accommodation is excellent and just as the website shows it to be. The manager Barry is wonderful. I went with my 2 year old daughter and to -date she always talk about him and even wants to go back to visit. I definitely recommend this beautiful place. The owner Sanmarie is great aswell, very sweet and welcoming over our conversation on the phone. I will definitely go back and stay at Harbour Vue on my next trip to Hermanus. Thank You Barry :-)

This is an extremely comfortable guest house in a splendid location, and the rooms are large and well-furnished. However, what makes it truly special is the service. Barry really impressed us with his genuine interest in our comfort, his conversation with all the guests, and his advice on the local restaurants and sights in the whole area of Hermanus. He also served superb breakfasts. We would certainly recommend this guest house to anyone

Our stay at this Guest House was very pleasant, wish we had been there longer.
Barry, the manager, was very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful.
Only problem we had was mosquitos buzzing around in our room at night time.

we really enjoyed our 5 night stay in the neptune suite, the rooms were beautiful,clean and well furnished.Barry was an excellent host providing us with lots of information on restaurants, places to visit etc. He even raised the welsh flag for us each day on the flag pole in the garden. We would certainly stay here again .

Really enjoyed staying here and only regret that it was not for longer. The rooms are very spacious, clean and quiet. The location is about a 5 min taxi ride from the centre of town but worth the ride in the local tuk-tuk. Barry served us our breakfast and was fun, interesting and a star!

Room Tip: Room facing the sea as you can sleep listening to the waves.

We stayed here as part of a 30th wedding anniversary trip in January 2012 - and we were truly bowled over by the place. A guesthouse with a pool??? We own a B&B in the UK and something like this would take us way into the 5 star league.
Barry, the manager could not have been more helpful and was not fazed by the arrival of two sets of guests at once - wouldn't you know it:-))
Our room overlooked the ocean and the vast floor to ceiling slide-back windows were open on our arrival and we thoroughly enjoyed the view after a journey from Stellenbosch.
Barry gave us ideas to eat and we took a walk along the cliff path.
One reviewer on this site made mention of the distance to the old harbour - I have to say I find this disappointing, as that same reviewer used this worldwide tool to raise their concerns to a worldwide audience, when they could quite as easily have used that same tool to take a street view of the Harbour Vue and work out themselves just how far it was without leaving home.
Hey-ho that's human-nature I suppose.
Our breakfast the next day was lovely and the people we met were great.
Keep it up Barry and your team - we'll be back to see the whales.

We spent a wonderful, spontaneous mini-getaway weekend at Harbour Vue and were warmly welcomed and spoiled by Barry from the moment we arrived (unexpected) on the doorstep! The rooms are tastefully appointed with stunning views, and all our needs were more than sufficiently met by Barry and his friendly staff. We enjoyed good laughs and chats and look forward to visiting Harbour Vue for another "breakaway" in the near future.
