We visited the Marine restaurant at lunchtime on Saturday 22 April. We 'discovered' the restaurant by chance and because of its location overlooking the ocean we decided to lunch there. The fish dish had the most delicate flavour and the stir fried vegetables were a nice touch. My daughter enjoyed her vegetarian burger very much. We only had time for...

We were in South Africa for two weeks and stayed in some very nice hotels but this was the best by a significant margin. We arrived early, around noon, intending only to park before walking along the Hermanus cliff walk but the staff got our room ready early - which was a nice touch. The location is amazing and you...

We were expecting to be impresses and we certainly were. The setting at the top of the cliff is spectacular and the walk along the top is fun. The hotel breakfast was plentiful and very good.

On checking in we were shown to a room overlooking the side of an apartment block – not what we had booked, however after a few minutes we were offered two other rooms that did meet our booking. We were delighted with Room 230 – superb views towards the mountains and across Walkers Bay. The hotel has recently been refurbished...

I reserved a table at Origins on the advice of a friend who lives and operates a business in Hermanus and was so glad that we chose to dine there. The whole atmosphere and ambience was just perfect.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Marine is one of the southern hemisphere's most spectacular seaside Relais & Chateaux properties. Perched on the cliffs, overlooking Hermanus's Walker Bay, The Marine boasts 40 individually decorated bedrooms and suites. This unforgettable property overlooks South Africa's most pristine whale sanctuary, and it is just a stone's throw from one of the greatest densities of the endangered Great White Shark, and selection of fynbos species in the Cape. The Marine offers guests the unique opportunity to experience the finest land-based whale watching in the world. From June to September guests are able to view these majestic creatures from the comfort of their beautiful sea-facing bedroom. The attention to detail is apparent in every aspect of this remarkable owner managed property - from the personal service to the exceptional cuisine which is overseen by The Collection by Liz McGrath's Grand Chef, Peter Tempelhoff, the perfect-for-sundowners Sun Lounge and the in-house Carchele Beauty Spa. Each piece of The Marine story adds another element to an unforgettable stay. ... more   less
