The heart of Hermanus!
Oct 2019
This largely pedestrianised area has much to reccomend it - providing a shopping experience from high-end boutiques through to tourist souvenirs, local arts and crafts and a wide variety of restaurants, cafes and ice cream parlours. I was impressed by the cleanliness of the surroundings - what a pleasure it was to wander round and enjoy the charm of this special historic centre!

Lovely Apartments
Nov 2018 • Couples
We stayed for 2 nights in the Village Square Apartment. In Gallery 01, we faced the back of the building so there was not much view. It was however a very comfortable stay with a well furnished kitchen with microwave and heated towel racks, and sofa. There is no washing machine nor area for hanging so you will need to ask them for laundry to wash some clothes. Staff was superbly friendly at reception and restaurant. We headed to the harbour house restaurant (5min Walk) for selection of hot and cold breakfast. Pool was too cold to get in but provided a great view of the coast. The location is perfect with many restaurants below. One thing to note is that there was no phone to dial reception. Also, lift stops at level 1 so you still need to walk a flight of steps to reach ground floor. Car park is at level 1 but separately paid at R60 per day.

There is a great salon LAB who filled up my lashes very professionally. They do nails and massage too!

Restoring my faith in humanity
May 2018 • Friends
During a recent visit to the Village Square (sharing the delights of Hermanus with a guest from the UK), I accidentally forgot my wallet in one of the public restrooms.

Within minutes after it happened, I received a call from the landlord of the Village Square, informing me that he has found my wallet and that I am welcome to collect it from him. (He got my personal details by phoning the emergency contact as indicated on my Medical Aid card)

All my credits cards, cash and ID cards were still in the wallet and an experience which could lead to a lot of stress and admin, was avoided my the HONEST, FAST action of the landlord.

This restored my faith in the honesty of people and I am eternally grateful for his pro-activeness!!!

Lovely Town

Hermanus is a charming town with the village square at it’s centre. The square is surrounded by shops, restaurants and cafes etc. Everything is within easy walking distance and you are literally a stones thrown from the bay.

An unforgettable experience
Mar 2018 • Family
We booked in at the Harbour House Hotel and chose the penthouse apartment for our holiday destination. It was an amazing place perched upon the roof of the Village Square. The square itself was designed for and met our every expectation as tourists to the area. Most people go on holidays and get caught up doing so much away from their hotels that they come away feeling tired. This building offered my family and I every bit of convenience that a conventional hotel could not normally do. We were a short walking distance from every main attraction in the Bay Area from Romantiques and Hemingways to more than a handful of the best restaurants I could imagine. My wife felt for cake one evening and we just popped down and bought four slices of delicious cake from one of the restaurants to take back. This Square is also well positioned within easy walking distance to every other amenity there was or attraction to see, and if we are ever in Hermanus again, this is the venue we are selecting again. The only downside was that there was a ship been renovated downstairs and during the day the noise carried through very loudly upstairs which disturbed us whilst we were getting ready to go out for breakfast and during the day when we got back for naps.

Shopping and restaurants
Feb 2018 • Couples
It has been done quite attractively with wood boarding / cladding type finishes and there are plants of shops in this area. The layouts, if you are looking for a particular shop are not so easy. I had to use a fire map in the main building and it still took me ages to find the unit!

Hello SimplyFred, Thank you for your review. Sorry for the confusion, the square is under construction at the moment so this probably added to your frustration. We have noted your concern and will look ar redoing the layouts once construction is complete. We hope this will not deter you from visiting us again soon.

Such a beautiful square where you can dine, shop and walk. Many South African dresses and jewels. We bought typical SA necklace made from wood for a reasonable price.

Awesome visit
Oct 2017 • Friends
Excellent mall, the mall is very well located clean and well lighted, most of the restaurants are seafronted, so you can watch the whales playing in the water while having lunch. The big variety of shops makes it a must visit.

This is a fantastic place to spend the day with friends and family. Lots to do and a wide variety of food to eat. Great place for shopping. Buzzing with locals and tourists. Lots of nice art galleries and souvenir shops.

We stayed in a gallery apartment in the vallage square, it was very nice, clean and cozy. Staffs were very friedndly. I had a very nice cheap massage. Exciting whale experienced. Nice spot to chill, eat and drink. It has something for everyone. Wonderful place, definitely worth a visit.
