The location is to die for, this is a million dollar view. On first sight the accommodation isn't bad, a bit on the grungy, faded side, with loads of space. What do you expect for three star. But it was dirty. The floors, door handles, taps, eugh. Not nice. My bare feet didn't stay long in their bare existence, but... More

LOCATION : There could not be a better location to stay for anyone visiting Hermanus. The stretch of Marine Drive Road starting from 'The Bistro' adjacent to 45 Marine Drive all the way down to 'The Marine' Hotel is the best place to stay in Hermanus - overlooking the Bay, all the best eateries next door, the Whales swimming past...

I've spent only one night at 45 Marine Drive, while passing through Hermanus, on our first day of the Garden Route trip. The view to the sea is magnificent. The localization is pretty good, close to the nice spots of Hermanus. However, this is not quite a hotel. It is an apartment, a little bit old, but very roomy. The... More

Our priority for our short stay was a sea view and close proximity to shops and restaurants and 45 Marine delivers both. We stayed in unit no. 12 on the second floor. This spacious unit has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, plenty of cupboards, open plan lounge and dining room and a well equipped kitchen. The furniture is not state... More

Stayed at 45 Marine Drive end February 2013. Flat was clean and neat, but desperately needs upgrading. For R1500 for 2 adults - a bit pricey. Stayed on ground floor (Apartment 1) but not one of the apartments had any lounges to sit outside, so could enjoy the huge front area. Furniture is sooooo old and uncomfortable. Both showers leaked... More

The location of these apartments are perfect - walking distance to shops, supermarkets and restaurants! The view is amazing and every time we stayed there (which is usually in August),... More

Great view and all round great experience. The unit (4 sleeper unit no 2) is fully equipped and more than sufficient. Although furniture is old it does not lack anything. I was pleasantly surprised with the underfloor heating in the main lounge, heated towel rails and Satellite Television included in the package. Within walking distance of most main amenities, old...

After reading a few reviews, just before leaving for 45 Marine Drive, which were negative, I was pleasantly surprised and happy to find that the negative reviews were definitely not my experience.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Perfectly situated on the very edge of the sea, yet in the heart of the quaint village of Hermanus, 45 Marine Drive is a place where you can relax without a care in the world...These fully-serviced self-catering apartments offer spectacular panoramic sea views on the famous Champagne Kilometer. So you can wake up to the call of seagulls and the sound of crashing waves — and watch the Southern Right whales play and frolic in the bay right beneath your balcony during the whale season. The 3-bedroom apartments can comfortably sleep up to six people. We also have some 2-bedroom units on offer. ... more   less
