The Marine Hermanus
Ranked #4 of 11 Hotels in Hermanus
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 April 2017

The Marine Hotel is elegant and beautifully decorated with lovely rooms in a relaxing and comfortable style. We had a warm welcome by all the staff we encountered they were all very friendly and efficient. The meal we had was excellent and served at a great pace, not rushed bout perfect. A real treasure on the coastline Id highly recommend it.

Room Tip: We had a sea view room some look over a courtyard, but you will pay more as ever for a sea view.

We visited the Marine restaurant at lunchtime on Saturday 22 April. We 'discovered' the restaurant by chance and because of its location overlooking the ocean we decided to lunch there. The fish dish had the most delicate flavour and the stir fried vegetables were a nice touch. My daughter enjoyed her vegetarian burger very much. We only had time for mains but are planning to come back soon to taste other dishes. We will of course try the hotel next time we are in Hermanus!

We were in South Africa for two weeks and stayed in some very nice hotels but this was the best by a significant margin.

We arrived early, around noon, intending only to park before walking along the Hermanus cliff walk but the staff got our room ready early - which was a nice touch.

The location is amazing and you can step onto the cliff path from the hotel garden. The views from the hotel and garden are gorgeous and the level of service was top notch.

Our "suite" of rooms (number 107) was very big and included a dressing area between bedroom and ensuite. Looking at the floor plan ours was one of the smaller rooms on the ground floor - do the others have snooker tables or something ? We had sea "glimpses" from our quiet and beautifully decorated room.

We sampled the bar - good service and decent prices and the view really was excellent.

Overall the hotel is in great order and retains its early 20th century sense of opulence and style.

Breakfast was good and cooked to order, though the pork sausage could maybe be a little tastier but I'm really splitting hairs.

The fire alarm went off a couple of times in the middle of the night but it stopped quickly enough for us not to have to evacuate the room - as long as that's exceptional then it's nothing that other travellers have to worry about.

The final bonus was a complimentary mini-bar. We took a couple of cans of coke on our cliff walk.

We really want to come back and would live there is we could afford it...

Room Tip: First floor (second floor for Americans) may have better views

Dear The_Don_UK,

We so appreciate that you took the time to give us such wonderful and detailed feedback on your stay with us at the Marine. Thank you so much.

We truly are situated in a beautiful location with amazing views and wonderful walks so glad that you made use of this. Great that you made use of our complimentary minibar, we feel that this is a lovely added extra for our guests.

At the Marine we take the safety of our guests very serious and when our fire alarms sound we first check to ensure that all is in order before we silence. This can happen on occasion, but is certainly not something that occur all the time.

I have also given your feedback regarding our pork sausages to our Executive Chef and he will definitely look into this.

We would be happy for you to live hear, so please let us know and we will make the arrangements.

Look forward to welcoming you back.

Kind Regards,

Annemie and the Marine Team

For us the Marine is great.The location is unbeatable and the views are stunning.The rooms are very spacious(more suites than rooms) and the place has a nice seaside charm while being modern enough at the same time.The staff throughout the hotel are VERY friendly and immediately knew our names, remembered our preferences etc,good attention to detail. The only downside was that breakfast choice was limited so we went out instead.We will certainly come back! Happy to recommend.
