The bed was very noisy, coffee was terrible, hostess not eager to help out with breakfast, even tho it was Booking.com that messed up my booking. However I sent a personal email to Whalers asking them to correct the booking to include breakfast. We were told by the host to go to the shop and buy cereal.

The hosts were very nice and we enjoyed our stay. We only arrived late and stayed one night, but Amy helped us finding accommodation for the following night and gave good tips for Hermanus and the Whale Festival!

Place is great, would suit perfectly a group of 4 to 6 people. Backyard with nice swimming pool and braai facility. Close to the main road, easy to access. Could do with premier dstv. Lovely though...

Spent a night here in the double room. Great facilities. Amy made us feel very welcome and we had a good time. And very modestly priced with the convenience of close to the town centre. I recommend Whalers.

Well priced self catering accommodation in within 10 min drive of the center of Hermanus. Units are clean and sparsely furnished..beds a bit uncomfortable. Common areas consist of a kitchen, lounge area with a pool board and a outside pool.Off street parking for all units but can be a challenge in season. Hostess was friendly and accommodating. Ideal place from which to explore all that Hermanus has to offer...less than 2 km from the favourite whale watching spots and most restaurants.

Property is on main road - very noisy. Small but adequate bedroom with huge bathroom; bath towels smelled like a well-used dishcloth. Owner was very friendly & helpful but disorganized. We left without taking a shower & skipped breakfast.

Parking is a problem as it is on a main road which is extremely busy and it is difficult to get in and out easily. It is not too far from Hermanus Central to walk if you are energetic and do not have too many things to carry with you. For a base to visit the area it is good for its price.

Hermanus is a wonderful place to stay. The owner of this B&B is very kind and provides you with everything you need (and even more on demand). It's easy to find and not far from the city centre and to the coast. Parking space is available und the room has a beautiful balcony, the bathroom is clean and there is even space for a third bed for children. WiFi has a very good quality and is strong enough to watch movies in the evening. We stayed there for two nights and the price was very good. I can strongly recommend Whalers B&B to any traveller coming to Hermanus.
