Sadly we were only there one night, great place in a great setting. The room was very good, spotlessly clean with all the facilities you require, lounges and dining room were stunning and well set out. Nearby Hermanus offered good restaurant's and shops as well as small galleries to explore. Breakfast was fantastic with food served by friendly and helpful...

Breakfast was delicious and the owner came in each morning to say 'Hello' and to see if she could help in any...

Stayed as a couple, 4 nights at Les Baleines after a busy time in cosmopolitan Cape Town and wineland Franshhoek. What a contrast. This place is a very stylish and high quality, peaceful retreat. It's on the fringes of Hermanus and at night you can hear the ocean pounding the endless beach. Our room was exceptional. Lots of thoughtful decoration...

The house was a bit "old style" for us. It is a great place though to disconnect. It has very unique common areas to sit and relax. It is quite far from the village but has a nice pool with views to the ocean. The service was great!

Really nice rooms, good communal areas, nice pool, good breakfast, personal touch in welcome and checking satisfaction. Taxi advisable as a few km from town/restaurants but taxis very reasonably priced. The only small negative is that guests have to carry own bags up to rooms which is a little taxing with luggage for an extended trip and youth slipping into...

This was the 2nd stop on our drive from Port Elizabeth and it didn't disappoint. We had a gorgeous room with fabulous wet room and, with the library and balcony right next door, it almost felt like we had a private suite. Just Being slightly out of time was no hassle. We had a car but for dinner we chose...

After a week of "proper" hotels this was a home from home. We had a fantastic room with a huge balcony overlooking the bay, eyes peeled for whale watching. When we arrived the lady told us that dinner reservations were made in town and a boat trip for the following day as well. Not obligatory, of course, but our advice...
