We enjoyed a special family weekend at this lovely hotel and also the apartments. Great service. Lovely staff. Pool menu great. Would go again. Old part of hotel beautiful but no air conditioning. Crickets werrrrre verrrry loud. Great braai area in apartment for a beach front braai/BBQ. Highly recommended.

Spent 2 nights here on way from PE to Cape Town. We were given a big serviced apartment because we asked for adjoining rooms. However this smelled of disinfectant and had loads of grasshoppers in it! We asked to move and were then put into two lovely double rooms, which were not interconnecting. These rooms were in the main building... More

My husband and I stayed at Harbour House on our first year anniversary. We received a complimentary upgrade to a full sea view facing room and cake + rose petals had been scattered around the room! We loved our stay, the staff were extremely helpful and friendly, amazing pool and location. Breakfast was great and we saw whales while sitting... More

We stayed in a romantic room which was beautiful and open plan, with just the toilet in a separate room. It had a lovely big bathtub, walk in shower and his & hers basins. The bed was a good size and very comfortable. The decor was very chic and the room felt lovely and spacious. The burgundy restaurant is right... More

We came from Cape Town for a getaway weekend to eat at the excellent Burgundy restaurant across the road from the hotel and play golf at the beautiful Hermanus Golf course. Also popped in for a drink and light meal at the well positioned Gecko Bar at the New Harbour. The hotel is very well located in Hermanus.The room was... More

Wonderful location overlooking sea. Spacious rooms and restful decor. Close to cliff walks and village centre. Breakfast room very small and noisy. Staff rather unsure about service in garden area where orders were mixed up but they were very charming

We stayed for 2 days in March. On arrival we were greeted by the wonderful reception staff, to be met by such friendly, smiling staff was very refreshing, I have staying in many 5 Star hotels and they could certainly learn from your reception team. We were shown to our room on the first floor in the new part of... More

Stayed here for two nights and had a room with a balcony overlooking the sea on the third floor. Specifically asked for a sea view and pleased that we did because not all the rooms provide this. Large room and en-suite with everything included that you could need. Hotel situation is really convenient for the cliff path and for the... More

Having looked at pictures and read through the reviews on their site we went along and booked from the UK. When we arrived we were blown away by the spectacular views and location. Lovely room, great food and very hospitable staff...what more can we ask for. We were very happy with the peace and quiet after a hectic day. I... More

We stayed here for two nights after six nights in Cape Town. This was pure relaxation in a lovely calm atmosphere. Staff were excellent and the food was well presented. The only downside in our room was no drawer or shelf space for clothes and we had to live out of our suitcase. This was ok for two nights but... More
