The decor and attention to detail were wonderful, the view great. Really enjoyed our host who gave spot-on recommendations for where to go during our stay. Breakfast was top tier, and would drive up just to eat there again! :)

We had the pleasure of having the most amazing stay at One Marine Drive, which had the most exquisite interiors, beautiful decor and best views over the ocean. We spent the day lounging by the heated pool and Sandisa took care of our every need, his service far exceeded any expectation we had. The breakfast was plentiful and simply delicious. We will most certainly be back soon. I would highly recommend this boutique hotel to anyone who needs a brief break away to recharge. Thank you all for an excellent stay!

My wife and I chose to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary with a 3 day getaway break in Hermanus. Choosing your establishment was a highlight, the attention to detail and the absolutely wonderful staff who were extremely helpful with all of our requests. I looked forward to the breakfast every morning which was both varied and nutritious. The complimentary tea, coffee, hot chocolate, cake and fruit was a nice surprise. We would love to stay there again.

My girlfriend and I checked into a Sea View room on New Years Eve for a two night stay, and absolutely loved our stay. The room itself was spacious and stylishly furnished with a very comfortable King bed, lounge chair, small desk and a large flat screen TV. The room has a large private patio with stunning sea views. Natasha, the hostess, made us feel right at home, and oversaw excellent service throughout our entire stay. Unlike most hotel breakfasts, you will absolutely look forward to their offerings every morning; a buffet featuring charcuterie, cheeses, fruits, croissants, and different daily features, as well as a menu offering several delicious English breakfast options. Great , luxurious hotel with a very cool vibe and kind staff.
