“Wonderful few days in this lovely hotel”
Reviewed 13 February 2017 via mobile

We were recommended Misty Waves as a place to stay in Hermanus. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome. The hotel decor is very stylish, actually quite ornate. We had a "honeymoon suite" which overlooks the pool and the sea. Four poster bed and enormous bathroom. Lovely little touches like cupcakes in the fridge, complimentary bottle of wine and flowers and chocolates on your pillow at night. The restaurant is separate so you can't charge to your room but it all works fine. The pool is small but adequate and we always found a space. The whole experience has been wonderful.

Stayed February 2017, travelled as a couple

Nice hotel with real sea view. The rockey coast is just in front of you and you hear the waves smashing on the rocks. The restaurant is offering a nice surprising menu. The service is great.
Walking distance from Hermanus centre.

We stayed for a couple of nights in Misty Waves on our tour of the Garden Route. What a charming hotel. Helpul attentive staff. Beautiful rooms. Lovely pool area. Secure parking. Easy walking distance to the center. We loved our stay and hope to return at some point in the future.

Our room was booked by friends and it met our expections in full. It was large, had a big bathroom and a fine view over the garden and sea. The service on arrival was excelent and very helpful. Parking facilities secure and good. Breakfast was good and as we had an early golfbooking we had it served half an hour earlier than the opening hour. However, the lightning in the bathroom is too weak.

Checked in for 2 night and had only glanced at reviews which were all pretty good. Was given room in the annex area at the rear and not in the main hotel building, requested a better room but was told none were available, we got a room at the rear in 2nd floor without a balcony although as it turned out nearly all the rooms to the front with balcony and sea view were empty as the door were open showing so.

The breakfast was good and the location is stunning. Bar is good and to be fair the main hotel building is pretty stunning inside.

Review is average as a reflection of the room given

Dear Guest
To start of we really appreciate your lovely review about the hotel and restaurant.
We regret that you were not totally satisfied with the room you received.
However it is a fact that we ALWAYS just as a treat do upgrade or move our guests into a better level room if available. It is standard procedure at Misty Waves.
I can promise you that if my managers say there is no room available it will be the case. You might have seen "vacant" rooms being cleaned with guests moving in and out. But at no stage will they withheld you the choice of a sea view.
To be honest we were totally fully booked for the past few months.
At a future visit I will personally arrange a Penthouse suite for you to give you a positive Misty experience.
Once again your lovely review of our hotel are highly appreciated!
Kindest Regards
