    excellent location. Very nice size room. Always nice to have a kitchenette with crockery and cutlery at your disposal. Chair in our room needed attention, bottom falling apart. Light in bathroom mirror was out, but otherwise very clean. excellent wifi.

    Very relaxed. Great staff. Lovely breakfasts. Unfortunately our room overlooked the car park. What should one ask for to get am upper room with a view across the Old Harbour ? (for next time).

    Fantastic location!

    What a fantastic location! Close to the cliff pathwalk and the Hermanus centre, this superb hotel offers a comfortable and memorable stay. Breakfast offers everything you expect including sea view, if they open the terrace during nice weather. The pool is simply stunning. I was however located in another building across the street which I was not aware of during booking. Not a big deal, but the main house seems to be even nicer.
