Awesome setting. Clean and serviced fresh bedrooms - although "old" interior. Fresh buffet breakfast included in stay. Safe and secure parking. Free Wi-Fi. Centrally located. Beautiful views! !!! Will definitely be back.

I was woefully disappointed in the Windsor Hotel. This was my first trip to Hermanus and I chose to stay at the hotel because it offered breathtaking views. Our room was quite cosy, but looked like it has not been touched since the 80's. The furniture was old and weathered and the balcony, which offered sea views to die for,...
