Reviewed 6 July 2017 via mobile

What an amazing hotel. We were given the executive suite 212 and it was just sublime. Huge bed, lounge and monster bathroom.
The staff are accommodating beyond the call of duty, friendly and you just feel at home away from home.
We walked to Grotto bay from the hotel which is an hour there and an hour back but worth it. Phenomenal views and houses along the way.
The dinning experience was fantastic and breakfast a real treat.
There is plenty to do and see in Hermanus and an awesome holiday all round. We will be back.

Dear Cameron1974,

We are thrilled to hear that you found the Marine to be an amazing hotel and that Room 212 and that dinner & breakfast exceeded your expectations. I am glad you took time to walk along the cliff path, really is such a lovely walk. Hermanus as a town certainly has a vast amount of activities on offer.

Look forward to welcoming you back!

Kind Regards,

Annemie and the Marine Team

This was an unforgettable experience. The staff are so well trained and it seemed that they anticipate your needs even before you yourself realise it. The food was excellent made even better by the view. The room was very comfortable and luxurious. This is a must when in Hermanus.

Wonderful staff, great food and service and luxury rooms made our weekend. The cliffside walks and the little town of Hermanus were enough to keep us happily occupied. The Hermanus wine route is a must. Unfortunately it was not the right time for whale watching so We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Seaview rooms are spectacular

True 5 star everything included from the mini bar including a complimentary bottle of wine we found staff attentive and friendly.
We did not use the restaurant's apart from breakfast which was of a high standard and stunning view.
WiFi coverage is good as they have numerous locations.
To early for the Wales but the coast line is stunning.

Dear John H,

Thank you for posting this lovely review of the Marine Hotel. Wonderful to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. We are blessed with wonderful views so even if the whales are not around yet it is still breath-taking, although we have started spotting a few whales already.

We hope to welcome you back!

We booked a room at the Marine Hermanus about three months ahead of our visit and asked for a sea view. Shortly before our arrival they advised that a sea view room was not available. The garden view room was very nice but the closet doors and the bathroom door did not close properly. The warm and cold water indicators on the basin taps were the wrong way round and there were no pods for the coffee machine when we arrived. When we returned from an excursion the next day, the pods had been supplied but some dirty glasses had not been removed. The hotel's Origins restaurant did not deliver at all. Our lamb and seafood curries were not satisfactory. The lamb pieces were chewy and the seafood curry more like soup (not even chowder!).
We did not have a bad stay but were underwhelmed by the experience, especially because it was the most expensive of our week-long trip to the western cape.

Room Tip: sea view rooms are preferable

Dear Mr Snyman,

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback.

It is disappointing to read of your experiences at the Hotel, your comments are valid and not acceptable for a 5 star property.

I have looked into your above mentioned points that was communicated with me on departure from the Hotel and these have been actioned accordingly. Your valued feedback has been taken into consideration.

We do look forward to welcome you back in the future.

Warm regards,

Melissa Burns
Assistant General Manager
