Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 December 2016

My husband and I spent a week at this hotel over Xmas. We had the most wonderful experience. The hotel staff from the Manager to the cleaning lady were exceptional. We were spoilt with great service, helpful hints and ideas of where to go. Each evening our bed was turned down with a divine chocolate on each side.
The restaurant where we ate breakfast each morning was great with an amazing variety of choice. I can highly recommend this hotel which is opposite a non swimming beach, but the view from our room was spectacular. The pool area was great and on windy days is secluded - so great to be there. They also have a covered seating area at the pool which is wonderful for a peaceful read after breakfast.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea facing room from the first floor up. We had room 202 which was fantastic with a large...

Dear Guest
We appreciate your time to write us a lovely review. Just have to mention however the office officially close at 10 /11 or sometimes later with late check-ins..... our night manager is staying still on duty - in an overnight room 4 metres away from the office. By calling reception you will have attention immediately. (This is also indicated in the room files) Apart from that we have a gate watch on duty through-out the night walking the premises and sitting in his guardhouse at the entrance gate to the hotel. There are another three staff members of which two are our reception ladies also staying on the premises.

Would love to welcome you back.

Took the family to Hermanus for quick getaway. We had luxury apartment in the Annex (which is close to main hotel). We ate dinner and breakfast at hotel. Truly a great experience. It's not our first stay and as always we leave with a huge smile.

We had the privilege of staying at this hotel for two nights which is to short.
From the moment we arrived we made to feel very welcome in every way possible.
The manager checked us in and they showed us up to our room which had awesome views of the ocean and if there were whales we would have seen them from the comfort of our own bedroom/balcony.
The place is beautifully decorated and done in very good taste.
The menu for lunch and dinner is small but more than adequate and they put on a great spread for breakfast.
The location is great as if there is to much traffic you could walk into town and enjoy some of their fine eating places as well.
You also have choices of family rooms, suites and standard rooms but I must say that there is nothing standard about this hotel.
You arrive as strangers and you leave as friends this is a true gem of a hotel who will definitely be seeing me and my family again.
