Although slightly out of the centre this guest house was fabulous. We had a room which led out on to the deck where the pool was. The owner had booked a restaurant for us for the first evening (which could be cancelled if we didn't want it) but it was lovely. A taxi ride into and from town was easy and cheap. The second night we walked down and ate at a restaurant on the beach which was good, Breakfast was provided - which was good and the room was very comfortable with all the usual amenities provided. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to visit the area

We stayed two nights at this lovely guest house. Our room, beluga whale, was very clean and comfortable with a balcony, sun loungers and a wonderful sea view. Teresa the owner was very welcoming, with helpful advice. Breakfast was nice. Would highly recommend.

We have just returned from our trip travelling round South Africa. Les Baleines never fails to please. Lovely location, very bright room with nice view over to the sea,perfect. But best of all is the great service and friendliness of Natalie, the housekeeper. She is amazing. That was our 5th visit to Les Baleines and it never fails to please.we love everything about Hermanus! The town the beach ,the cliff walk all amazing. We definitely look forward to hopefully returning in the future.

Very welcoming and very comfortable accommodation. Nothing appears to be too much trouble with evening meals on arrival pre booked at a local restaurant for convienience. Breakfast adequate but a little over fussy. Tea and coffee facilities in the room which were welcome with a complimentary glass of sherry ( but who drinks sherry these days?). Great pool area to relax by and soak up the sun. As others have stated it is over an hours walk into town, but you can call for a taxi on the house phone for free, which makes sense if you are intending to drink alchohol with your meal, taxi fare 95 rand

Enjoyed the facilities at Les Baleines but had expected to be on the outskirts of town as opposed to nearly 6 kms out. Found it a little overpowering to come in at 5 p.m. and be told a restaurant had been booked for you for that night and whale watching trip the next day. Went to the restraint which was good although would have liked to looked around ourselves but did not go out on the whale watching trip the next day. I don't like boats but it also was the whole day and expensive.
