We stayed one night in the new wing, the staff are very good at their job but not very friendly. We had a large room on the ground floor, with no view, it would have been great for a disabled person as the bath room was really a wet room with a roll in shower and a seat and hand... More

We actually stayed at The Quarters Hotel which is across the road from The Harbour House Hotel but as they now belong to the same company, the check in and meals for both hotels are now done at Harbour House. We had breakfast on two mornings and they were both excellent. Once we had spent time walking around Hermanus, we... More

It even had a kitchenette and you could self cater if you wish. the only minus point was that our air con was... More

We knew Harbour House hotel was the position we wanted - right in town and right overlooking the sea but we felt like a change from a hotel room so decided to try their apartments : Le Paradis. These are right behind the hotel so position is fabulous and still with a great view. We stayed in Le Paradis 5... More

We had a 3-night stay at this hotel recently and found ourselves allocated to the room with facilities for the disabled. BEWARE....it has very good facilities but has no outlook at all and unless one draws the curtains, even during daylight hours, occupants are overlooked by staff members using the ramp to access the basement area of the main residential...

If you are looking for a great location in Hermanus, this one can't be beaten !! The rooms are spacious and we had one with a great view over the ocean - truly spectacular. It does seem like the hotel is in need of some general maintenance ... the bathroom had some damp / mould on the ceiling and the... More

We were hot and wanted a cold drink but all the bars seemed to be teeming with people. Then we spotted the HHH and asked if we could get a drink their.They said yes, and we sat in the garden near the pool which was really chilled. Really nice people and good service. Next time we go we would try... More

The main attraction must be the spectacular location, right on the Old Harbour in this center of the whale-watching universe. But we dropped in casually on a Sunday, for lunch, and were not disappointed. Service is dead slow yet friendly, but the food (a lamb chop for one, and a pan-fried hake and chips for the other) was really good.... More
