The hotel is right on the sea front with a lovely harbour walk. Room was excellent and well equipped. The breakfast was good with lots of choice and good quality.. Surrounded by local eateries and bars which were well used.

Stayed in suite connected to breakfast area, great view of the coast and mountains. Lots of windows, seemed to be close to several places to eat and have a couple of drinks. Favorite place to eat, short drive was B's Steakhouse by far. On honeymoon my new wife and I loved the breakfast and room, but service was below par.... More

Great venue just the service could be improved and certain bar spirits range widened. Perhaps also a better variety of music seeing as we heard the same song repeat for 4 hours. Other than that the venue is very comfortable and will be back again. Only hope that the above has been sorted.

This hotel is in the heart of Hermanus. Walking distance to all restaurants and shops. Parking is easy off the road or secure parking behind the hotel. Top floor ocean view rooms have great small balconys to watch the spectacular view but are noisier than the rooms that face the back of the hotel with a small partial ocean view.... More

Spent 2 nights in Hermanus in April 2015 to be close to shark cage diving in Gansbaai. Initially wanted to be somewhere a little quieter and on the beach however opted for the Harbour House Hotel which overlooks the ocean and the old harbour. The hotel is perfectly located, only a few steps away from a range of restaurants (try... More

Clean, bright and modern rooms with great (partial) views of the sea. The pool was lovely. Location on seafront was perfect only a couple of minutes walks to a variety of evening meal options and next to the cliffside path. Free parking out front and tasty breakfast of continental and cooked foods...one of our top hotels on our tour of... More

we stayed here for two nights en route to Plettenberg Bay. We had a top floor room which was very comfy and spacious. The added bonus was the small kitchen when were just to tired to eat out. Breakfast was lovely with lots of choice but overall Hermanus didn't grab us in the same way other places we have visited... More

We spent two nights at Harbour House Hotel. My brother and sister-in-law were visiting from overseas. We had two luxury rooms, each with a balcony overlooking the beautiful bay and the mountains. Breakfast was included and it was a wonderful breakfast - so much to choose from from the cold buffet and then we could choose a hot breakfast as... More

Great location, great view, great pool with loungers. Right overlooking seafront, walking distance to shops and restaurants. Room 7 good quality fixtures and fittings, great free standing bath in bedroom if you like that and a very romantic room with large balcony. Breakfast good.
