We had a very nice view at sea, so we could spot whales. The hotel is situated outside the centre. However you can walk to the centre along the coast. Parking is no problem. It is not possible to have diner in the hotel, and in the evening you have to take care for your own drinks.

I stayed here with my boyfriend while we were doing a wine tour and whale watching in Hermanus. We had a rental car and they provided free parking on their gated property, which was very convenient. The staff was friendly and gave us restaurant recommendations and called cabs for us whenever we needed them. The cliff walk, which is right...

Stopped here for a night with our kids whilst travelling the Garden Route, should have stayed longer. Beautiful lodge in a breathtaking setting: we arrived on a sunny afternoon and watched whales breaching from our balcony. Nothing was too much trouble and the staff booked a whale watching trip for us, organising transport as well. Very comfortable beds and great...

Very beautiful hotel facing the sea from where it is possible to watch whales!! The room was big, very clean and quiet with a large bathroom with shower and bath tube, hairdryer, towels...the breakfast very good! Private parking available. It is necessary to take the car or a taxi to reach the main centre of Hermanus (5 minutes).
