This was something different because you basically stay in the mall ! But what a great stay was it not. The kids especially enjoyed the fact that Checkers was just a minute away. The best feature of of Whale Coast Hotel is that it is located very central and walking distance from a number attractions.

This was our last getaway before Ramadaan started and it was one of the best weekends i've had in a very long time. Hermanus is a must see, everything is in walking distance from the Whale Coast hotel. They stay at the hotel was amazing, the staff was friendly and very helpful, they attended to all our needs with haste. They even provided some toys for son to play with. The apartment was well equipped and maintained and the views from the balcony are to die for. Although i would like to ask if they could provide some plastic cups and plates for the kiddies, and also look into changing out the lounge carpet (room 201). But other than that it was a wonderful stay!!!
