Reviewed yesterday NEW

This hotel is in the perfect spot but not all rooms look out on the waterfront so one may have to pay a little more to upgrade room but this is worth it - Hermanus is a beautiful place - unfortunately we did not get to see the Whales - quaint place to walk around - we only stayed one...

Great hotel with stunning views and a great buffet breakfast, near the central part of town, with all the shops and restaurants. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable, especially grateful to the receptionist who printed out various documents for me at no charge

Rooms are very old, not up to standard, was not very clean. The room we slept in was a seaview room, but was very dark and the wall between the room and where the sofa is, can be removed to let in light and to be actually able to enjoy the sea.

A truly wonderful location and an old hotel which in places shows its age but work seems ongoing. Generally well staffed by helpful people. There are other plus factors, a beautiful breakfast room with generous and good quality breakfasts. Rooms are clean and comfortable and wi fi is very good. On the minus side, and very much to our disappointment...

As regular guests for the past 10 years, we always felt at home in the Windsor Hotel. And the staff plays an important role in this regard. Thank you all. One little niggle though: unpleasant cold white light bulbs; warm white would make the rooms so much more cosy at night.

This hotel is so gorgeous we just kept taking pictures from the window in our room - looking out onto the ocean straight from your room is just incredible. The hotel itself has the feel of a historical monument, so classic and elegant. We had some dietary requirements and the staff was exceptionally accommodating. We absolutely loved staying at the...

We liked staying at Hermanus's Windsor Hotel with its sea front location, attentive staff and amazing breakfast room with views over the ocean. It has a good car park at the back and a reputation stretching back over a hundred years. But our room (at the back) was small, un-airconditioned and without a fridge. Also adjacent building work meant the...
