Stayed as a 1 night stopover going back to Capetown, very last minute so we were lucky to get in, I thought the staff were all excellent, location was excellent, a little on the expensive side, however if you want views like the hotel offers, then I suppose you expect to pay for them. The minibar in the room was...

Stayed in the apartments in separate block which was previously Quarters Hotel where we've stayed three times before. Apartments just as good although missed having reception onsite and the works to form the new entrance were not completed. Excellent breakfast in the main hotel. Poolside views across the bay are amazing although sadly far too cold to sit out for...

We only stayed at this hotel for 1 night in early December and on the accommodation alone it was ok, our least favourite hotel during our 3 week trip across South Africa. The breakfast was average. However, we accidentally left 2 items of expensive clothing in the wardrobe and due to the unreliability & untrustworthy nature of the staff,they were...

Restuarant outside has gorgeous view, but the waitress had no idea of what the seafood dishes consist. She said the prawns are 3,4 or 5 outside with something inside, but you must leave the shells. All tables were smoking and when requested for non-smoking, we were pointed inside. Sad on such a beautifull day to sit inside because of inconsiderate...

We stayed in the new building across the main hotel (room 13). Mostly comfortable but a few problems: bed too short, some of the bed linen was Winter fabric. Continual intermittent rumbling noise throughout day and night. Hotel maintenance were unable to locate the source. No coffee pods for the Nespresso coffee maker. Parking underground was a nightmare as it...

Great location in the middle of Hermanus. We stayed at harbour square (room 7) which is opposite the main hotel. Room was modern and comfortable but on closer inspection things were not perfect. Empty minibar and no glasses, not a single capsule for the nespresso machine (apparently can be gotten from reception but too much hassle). Bed was too short...

Stunning pool area, with the most amazing view! The bar also serves the best strawberry daiquiris at the pool. Our room was very spacious, modern and comfortable with a balcony overlooking the ocean. There was a wide breakfast variety with good service. Great for a getaway weekend!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated in the heart of the historical village, Harbour House Hotel has been modelled after its original architecture, a thatched roof seaside manor house built in 1920. Being perfectly located above the Old Harbour, the hotel's understated luxury is offset by the soothing surrounds of the ocean. The magnificent Lookout Terrace invites guests to relax around the infinity pool overlooking the ocean and savour a sundowner from the pool bar in the Pavilion. Harbour House Hotel consists of the restored Manor House with intimate Romantic Rooms, all with views, as well as the New Wing with 18 spacious suites, featuring sophisticated modern decor, a kitchenette and lounge leading out onto a private balcony. Guests are afforded luxury at every turn, from 100% fine white cotton bedding to marble and granite finishes. Sleek lines and carefully curated art pieces add to the modern aesthetic of each room. ... more   less
