A small B&B with rooms around a small pool. We couldn´t use the pool due to the weather but it gave the place a cozy atmosphere. Nice rooms, nothing special. If they remove the carpet in the room and had wooden floor it would be better.

We previously stayed here in 2014 and had enjoyed it so much that we returned again. We were made really welcome on arrival and soon settled in. The rooms are comfortable and it is nice having the small courtyard with the swimming pool. When we were on the early morning boat trip to see the whales the owners were accommodating...

When planning a trip to Hermanus (or nearby) and needing a place to stay, Balaeia is definitely one B and B to recommend. Set in a quiet residential neighborhood not far from the town center, Balaeia offers cozy comfort, safety and panache. The rooms are very spacious, beds are very comfortable and all furniture is well assigned with enough closet...

My girlfriend and I stayed here for the evening. It's a very nice B&B, the bathroom seemed spotless and the bedroom very neat and clean which is 1st prize for me. The location is spot on meaning it's very close to the center of Hermanus town which means it's walking distance to all the the best amenities.

Baleia is a very comfortable bed and breakfast. As we travel a lot, I was pleasantly surprised with many things. There is secure off the street parking allocated to you. We needed to pay the accommodation before receiving the keys to the room. The rooms doors all face a pool area which is very nice. The rooms are very clean...

The land lady is very accommodating as she was not at all grumpy when we woke her up at 02h30 to let us in. The room is spacious and well appointed, very stylishly decorated and has everything one needs: its own bathroom with shower and bath, and separate entrance. Breakfast was the full English including cereal, yogurt, fresh fruit and...

Stayed for 1 night. Friendly welcome. Room is spacious enough and bathroom even more than that. No airco only a ceiling fan. Carpet in the room makes it even hotter. But they took my advise for using tiles in consideration. Breakfast was good. Around 10min walk to Hermanus. it is a small village with some souvenir and clothingshops. Some restaurants...
