This is an excellent hotel nicely located in Hermanus within walking distance to town and port.
Very friendly arrival and check-in and Sam (the GM) couldn't do enough to help us in booking car hire and restaurants.
The pool area is small but nice and clean but must recommend the private cinema where Ryan put on the rugby and football for us - a great facility.
We had an annexe family room (for 2 people) which was massive and great value.
Will be back to stay again !

Room Tip: Use the cinema - you can select a film !

For a fifth year we have come to Misty Waves for two weeks and for a fifth year we have enjoyed every moment. We love it because it is so very much a family affair and the Lerm family are a delight. One real up front star of the show is the beautifully elegant Samantha, Head Manager, an ageless Tinkerbell figure for whom nothing is too much trouble. And working alongside her on reception:.... the amazing and lovely Nobs with the biggest smile in Hermanus, Nicoline,who is not only pretty but is the politest and most modest girl in the world, the handsome and vivacious Lorenzo and the super courteous Ryan who appears totally unphased by anything and should have been part of the Downton Abbey cast. Housekeeper Shelly-Ann goes quietly about the hotel covering a countless multitude of things both small and great which makes her one of the unsung stars of the show. Samantha will introduce you to her friend the hotel cat Misty who ensures he is the only cat around and (for those not over-fond of cats) is spotlessly clean. These are all great people who create the perfect hotel with kind courtesy, charm, and much good humour.. Cheerful General Workers are always at hand. Be sure to look out for the never to be repeated Andries who has been with the family for some thirty five years. He together with such as James, Desmond and George are always there to help and will not allow you carry anything without their assistance. The bedrooms are fabulous, spacious and comfortable.... and there is a great variety so do ask about different choices. The ladies who clean the rooms go about their duties quietly and politely and will also ensure you have everything you need. After a Misty Waves breakfast we personally have no need of lunch... a huge choice of fresh fruit, cold meats, and a fine choice of cooked goodies. And if you cant find something you like it will be there for you next day. In our case it was blueberries! Charming and friendly service.
Finally the hotel atmosphere is one of great tranquility and peacefulness. Of course there are the occasional moments when there is busy bustle when a lot of new guests arrive, but before long the impressive main hall returns to its usual calm with just a tiny suggestion of music in the background which echoes very quietly up and around the mounting staircase .... although after a few days you may have heard 'Fur Elise' or 'Don't cry for me Argentina' possibly just once too often!! But that is being very picky and I only slip it in in case you thought I had no criticisms at all!
They say there is no place like home and that is true. But if I ever had a second home I think Misty Waves would be it.

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.
