The moment we stepped into our room we said....this is it. This is home. Upon arrival we checked in at what looked more like a bar counter than a hotel entrance lobby, but the ladies at the "bar counter" were eager to please and this more than made up for the glitzy glamour of some hotel check-ins. We were placed... More

We had a good ocean-view from out room, that was spacious and comfortable. There are parking places both inside and outside the hotel. Please, note, that it is a good 4* hotel, but in no way 5*, as it is posted in Tripadvisor. Service is very good. Do not miss their lunch - the most tasty Hake fish you can... More

This hotel is in a stunning location right on the shore. The service is also top notch. I had hoped for a room with a view but was fine without one in that you can just walk over to the infinity pool, take a lounge chair and let it sink in. Where I would nitpick is in the bedroom itself.... More

Harbour house is is a great location in the old harbour. We were in the new building on the 3rd floor. Our room was like a mini suite, beautiful and comfortable with a kitchenette with nespresso machine which was a cool touch! Our view of the ocean was amazing. Breakfast was good also, continental or cooked, both had good choices... More

Not only a beautiful location but a beautiful room overlooking the sea. We saw 4 whale breachings from our balcony. The hotel is well situated in Hermanus, close to several shops and restaurants. Great value . Looking forward to our next stay there.

Harbour House Hotel offers a great location with some rooms looking out over the ocean. Very close to various whale watching companies. Staff were both friendly and informative. Standard rooms are basic but spacious. Hermanus itself is fairly small with few activities apart from whale watching. One night would be sufficient.

We booked a 2 bedroomed self catering apartment at Le Paradis which is managed by the Harbour House Hotel. Perfect location. Everything within walking distance. I booked using Airbnb.com. Stunning sea views. Bedrooms are upstairs and the lounge and kitchen downstairs also with sea views.

The location is breathtaking! The hotel is so beautifully set up and prepared for your arrival. The service was great and we were very happy during our stay. There is plenty to do at the hotel, including the salon we visited for manicures, the lovely craft markets set up and there is ample restaurants to dine at. Highly recommended stay.... More

What a pleasant experience. We as weekend guests had the most stylish rooms at the Quarters , part of the Harbour House Hotel. Excellent service from the staff. Well done guys. This is a must for any visitor to Hermanus at affordable rates. The restaurants and whales are on your doorstep.

A group of us stayed in the Birkenhead Apartment owned by the Harbour House Hotel in July. We arrived late, our friends had checked in earlier in the day and were having dinner in one of the local restaurants, so the porter, Prince, who met us in the car park offered to collect the key and escort us to the...

Dear Bhebin, First and foremost thank you for your recent stay at our Birkenhead apartment.
