Definitely thee most beautiful boutique hotel I have ever come across. Had an amazing stay, and our duty manager Edmond were absolutely wonderful and so helpful ! Can't wait for my next visit. Definitely more like a 5 star hotel in my opinion. High quality beautiful hotel, amazing views, inviting atmosphere, beautiful exquisite taste in decor and lovely bedding. Would definitely want to come back whenever I'm in Hermanus again. I'm still in awe of this beautiful Boutique Hotel.

We stayed in the Penthouse. I dressed in our room for our BIG DAY! Wow wow wow! The room was absolutely exquisite! Any Bride's dream! My husband and I started our new chapter in the ultimate lap of luxury! The beauty is in the attention to the smallest detail such as rose petals, chocolates, sparkiling wine to the breath taking ocean view from the luxury of your super king size bed / or the beautiful balcony... The decor of the room is worthy of a high end art gallery to say the least! I can go on and on and on.... A definite must stay if ever you are in the beautiful Hermanus!

We stayed at the penthouse. It was a great stay. The hotel and its very old style décor was well done with great interiors. The room was very (VERY) large. Although we had a good discount, it was a bit expensive. Everything worked well, but I did miss all the DSTV stations (which one would expect for a top establishment), as one could not watch the top sports channels. Covid-19 brought strange times. I still struggle to get used to an empty mini-bar. Personally, I am also not in favour of a bed inside the room, and not in a separate bathroom, as it tends to be cold. But except for this, it was a great stay, and we may return.

Response from Maxie Lerm, Owner at Misty Waves Boutique Hotel Hermanus
Responded 08 Jun 2021
Dear Johan Appreciate your lovely comments. Thank you very much. On arrival you could use our complimentary offer of a choice of three wines or sparkling wine? There is a note on the minibar indicating guests to please dial 9 before 18h00 to get it stocked. Covid-19 really place a lot of restrictions ;) The Penthouse suites as on our website www.mistywaves.co.za are very modern and in high demand. On a next visit please just indicate you prefer a different option. Which is available. (The Channels package we have: Movie 5 Sport 10 Children 4 Music 2 Lifestyle 1 Religion 6 News and Commerce 9. If there is any which you still needed you could have the cinema for your own use. We would have arranged it immediately) Hope to welcome you back in the near future. Kind regards Maxie Lerm
