We stayed 2 years ago and loved it so booked again for 4 nights. We requested a quiet room We were not given the room (6) we were booked for but a dark ground floor room with no outlook and no privacy. The curtains had to be kept drawn all day. It was next to reception with accompanying noise. Despite repeatedly asking for an explanation none was forthcoming. We were told an alternative room was available/ then told it was being used/ then told we couldn’t look at it/ would have to get permission and so on. We were told that despite load shedding ‘everything worked except AC and hair dryers. In truth nothing worked except dim ceiling lights and Wi-Fi. Given the ongoing issue with load shedding surely a 5* venue should be self sufficient. When asked when load shedding was taking place we were told to down load the app! How about putting up a notice. We found the receptionist to be dismissive with a tendency to minimise issues rather than address and deal with matters raised. We felt that there was an issue with reception staffing having been told that someone had been ‘brought in to sort things out’. Staff there seemed to have just started and reluctant to take responsibility.

Response from Heidri Saayman, Owner at 7 on Marine
Responded 1 week ago
Good day Peter, It really baffles me why a guest would feel that they need to leave a repeat of their negative review on a second online platform, especially as the reason for their unhappiness is their own assumptions regarding free room upgrades and the like. We received your booking in October 2023, requesting a "quiet room please". Your booking was made for our cheapest room (Deluxe Double or Twin Room with an "Inner Courtyard View"). You were given the EXACT room you booked online. Since we are still in high season, all our sea view rooms were booked/occupied. Our new receptionist attempted to find a way of upgrading you to another room, but your wife told her that you are not interested in moving rooms, as the upgrade also did not have a sea view. Regarding loadshedding, our system is able to supply power to the TV, wifi and overhead and emergency lights. We are in the process of adding wall plugs to this system to enable our guests to charge their phones and make coffee even during loadshedding. We have a wonderful team of staff members who are willing to go the extra mile for guests who are respectful and friendly. However, you may find that even the most patient and accommodating staff will react to rude and entitled persons. Our new Receptionist, whom you have been deriding in both your reviews, do indeed need permission to upgrade guests, especially if we are at 90% occupancy. You may find that one gets better results by exchanging goodbye smiles, than leaving behind soiled sheets as a parting gift. Regards, Heidri (owner)

Everything about 7 On Marine is outstanding. The location giving amazing views of the ocean and just a short walk in to Hermanus. The building itself is beautifully designed with stunning interiors. The view from the room is incredible with a large sliding door allowing you to enjoy the sea breeze and the sound of the ocean. Amazingly comfortable bed and stylish bathroom. Breakfast and the service was great

Our experience was terrible. Bad service, no one around to assist you at night or day. Our baths plug never opened and was never attended to, despite being reported twice. Mold in the showers, one day they never serviced our room at all. They provide a stunning breakfast, but we were never asked if we want toast with the breakfast or extras. They have a stunning bar area, but no one there ever to serve you. When you looked for someone to assist, no one was around. The cushions on the patio with beautiful views were never put out, so you could enjoy this area and the views. This is definitely not a 5 star hotel, at best a 2 star bed and breakfast. The daily pricing definitely too expensive for what you get.

Good day Raymond, I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay. We appreciate your feedback and want to improve our service. Unfortunately, I am unable to verify the dates of your stay or the room in which you stayed in order to address the many issues you highlight. I can only offer the following explanations: Our manager lives on the property and an emergency contact number is always displayed and available for guests to contact. Our bar operate on an honesty principle and is therefore "self-help". The patio cushions are placed outside on good weather days and stored during storms and on rainy days. Your stay may have coincided with bad weather and once it cleared, staff may have been slow to place them outside again. We will address all your other issues and undertake to improve further on the cleanliness of the rooms. Regards,

We were greeted by Annie a most helpful receptionist who kept our cases until load shedding ended and the lift was operational. In common with everywhere we stayed the management had obviously gone to considerable expense to mitigate the inconvenience of load shedding. Our top floor room had lovely ocean views and would I assume afford whale watching during the season. Sadly not in February when they have gone. There is secure off street parking. As mentioned in other reviews lovely common areas. However, it’s the first time I’ve ever retrieved a book from our room while waiting for breakfast. There is no fruit selection available just some very ordinary fruit juice, a trio of small smoothie, granola and something else which came eventually. I’m unclear as to why the service was so chaotic. We asked for and got a cafetière of coffee but no cups. Toast with no side plates. I could go on. I suppose I minded as a little input from more senior staff/ owners could have got things sorted. Hot food when order was eventually taken was good. Considering the breakfasts we had everywhere else it was v disappointing.

This place is one of the most modern and and best places we have ever stayed. it is right opposite the beach and the great Ficks restaurant. Clean and modern areas with hot tub availability and views from all bedrooms and communal areas across the ocean. Beautiful on suite facilities and the breakfast was the best i experienced in SA. a short walk away is the cliff top walk of which we we experienced a whale breaching the surface. the staff here could not do enough and very welcoming we loved it, thank you.

A lovely guesthouse on the seafront in Hermanus. Spotlessly clean throughout, lovely room with free standing bath. Great lounge area with honest bar and deck overlooking the sea from which we saw whales one morning. Fabulous breakfast, great hosts and a 5 minute walk into Hermanus. Also opposite a lovely tapas beach bar called Ficks which is well worth a visit. Highly recommend.
