Lovely 2 night stay in September. The staff were both friendly and helpful. They upgraded us so we could see the sea from our room. There is the most amazing view of whales swimming in the harbour from the swimming pool and grounds. Breakfast was good as was the cream tea which we just couldn't resist Hermanus itself is great...

We did a one-night stop-over en-route from Cape Town to Knysna, so didn't really do the hotel justice. The welcome from the staff was great ad the room we had was truly superb - huge, well-equipped, spotless, modern and a view out over the harbour-front. Watch this when booking; we had specifically paid for a sea view and what we... More

The Harbour House is in a great spot for two reasons. 1 it is close to a lot of bars, restaurants, shops etc. It basically in the main part of town. Secondly its close to the coast and so you can literally walk out your door to see whales just swimming in the waters. The rooms were clean comfortable and... More

Just back from a 3 night whale watching trip. A first visit at whale watching time so weren't too sure what to expect but irrespective - the hotel delivered. Having been in Hermanus in December we knew we wanted to stay IN the buzz. Where we could, ideally, park the car on arrival and not use it again until we... More

We only stayed 1 night at the Harbour house hotel as a stop over between Cape Town and Plettenberg bay but having sampled the town, seen many whales close up and enjoyed the Hotel we wish we'd planned a longer stay. The staff were very friendly, the rooms were bright, spacious and spotlessly clean (we had asked for an adjoining... More

We stayed two nights in Hermanus and were lucky to have a room at Harbour House. The view of the Bay is excellent and the hotel is within easy walking distance of everything you could want. The breakfast service was quite nice and everyone on staff was helpful and friendly. The hotel is very well-maintained and I would not hesitate... More

We stayed for 2 nights in September on our way along the Garden Route. This is great hotel located right on the front with great views across the bay. Hermanus is a great town to visit and this hotel is central with easy road access out to places of interest. The room was excellent, although we received an upgrade to... More

Great location ! Friendly staff. Clean rooms. Spacious. Great vibe. Walking distance to restaurants, pubs, etc. We just love this hotel, and went back another time as well. Not cheap, but good value for money. The people from "Transvaal" will think this is heaven !!

We stayed here recently and were rewarded with a fantastic room with a sensational view out over the bay where from the balcony we could see whales passing and breaching only tens of metres from shore. The staff were friendly and attentive and overall we were delighted with the hotel.
