The decor and gardens are charming. The property is very well maintained, the bathrooms are modern and the bed linens are very high quality. The breakfast was delicious. Across the street there is access to a walking path with incredible views of the ocean and beaches.

We had fun and Maryke is a very good host. She has a lot of tips for ur stay in Hermanus but also for our trip to mossel baai and wilderness. We had also great fun with other guests. Breakfast was great as well as the garden and the lounge inside.

The room was very clean, neat and tidy. Marijke is a great host. A bit disappointing for the price paid especially at a higer rate for peak season: shower leaks, closet door broken, paid for a 3rd person in room yet towels provided only for 2. Also note no coffee or TV facilities in the room. Other than that it was a nice stay.

Response from Marijke Mosimann, Owner at Walker Bay Manor Mansion
Responded 11 Jan 2024
Dear Denille, Thank you taking the time to write a review. We are glad you found a clean room and that you liked your stay. As for your remarks: I could not find a leak in the shower, it is not dripping. I always appreciate it when guests tell me of problems in the room during their stay and not afterwards, so we can attend to it immediately. I truly apologise for not providing you with a 3rd towel. This may have happened one day of your stay as we had a new cleaning girl. I am sure you would have contacted me about this if it happened more than once and one can always ask for more towels. As for the broken hinge; we could not find a carpenter during the holidays who could fix it. The hinge is fixed now. On my website there are all the facilities and amenities listed for each room. I am sorry that your room did not have the facilities you would have wanted. It was a pleasure to have you at Walker Bay Manor and I wish you a wonderful New Year. Warm regards, Marijke

Travelling with a friend we had two nice, clean and comfortable rooms. Our hostess was charming, very helpful with advice and directions. Breakfast was taken in the beautiful, immaculate garden. We only had to cross the road to be on the cliff path

We stayed in the Junior suite and the pool room. It was great to have our own private space as we were two families travelling together. Excellent and clean rooms with beautiful decor, Marijke was very helpful and the breakfast was delicious. The location is convenient to the bay for whale watching. Will definitely stay here again.

Lovely comfortable property and a warm, welcoming host. Fantastic to be able to cross the road and immediately be on the cliff path walk. I booked very late, and then extended my stay close to check out and everything was handled smoothly. Will definitely be back.

Marijke was a fabulous host. She made our stay extremely comfortable and gave us a lot of tips on things to do around which was very helpful. She even managed to book us for a whale watching tour in peak season on a Sunday, even though we requested it at the very last minute. There's a lovely cliff walk exactly outside the property, from where you can easily spot whales. The room and amenities were extremely good, they even had bed warmers, which were such a blessing in the cold. Would highly recommend the property!

Sadly we only spent one night here but what a little gem of a place. Spacious rooms with stunning views, beautiful gardens with a pool area and breakfast was fabulous. Literally across the road was the Fernkloof Nature Reserve Cliff path with stunning views of the ocean and mountains. Overall a wonderful stay and a lovely host (Marikje).
