Friendly helpful staff. Clean and all you need. Upgraded our room without request or cost. Love to just relax and feel the sea. Breakfast was a bit ( what we can eat at home ). Otherwise we love the venue and staff. Will be sure to be back when the whales make their appearance

Thank you so much to the Windsor Hotel for another fantastic stay. A peaceful and gentle healing of the soul in the champagne air, watching the giant crashing waves. I am grateful to RUN Hermanus for a wonderful run along the sea-cliffs. And to the Marine Tidal Pool for its wild, yet safe, swimming haven.

Stunning location with the best views will make for a great vacation. The hotel is really central and ideal for walking and exploring the town. If i could make one recommendation it would suggest disability parking.

Good morning Christell Thank you for your review and for taking the time to let us know how your stay was. We are delighted to hear you enjoyed the views and that you found the hotel to be so central. Unfortunately our parking lot is rather small, and we are not able to implement any disability parking, however we do provide parking cones, and in the event that someone needs us to block a parking bay off for them due to disability access, we are able to do so. We hope to welcome you back to the Hotel again soon. Kind regards, Madeleine On Behalf of the Windsor Team

Such a treat to get away during covid 19, after a long Lockdown. The hotel is such a lovely, retreat, on the seaside in Hermanus. Friendly staff, and nice rooms that are beautifully decorated. A wonder place to enjoy the sea and fresh air. Will return
