We are newly weds and stayed at this establishment for an evening. Perfect self catering facility with everything you need including a braai on the balcony. The most breathtaking views overlooking Walkbay, Hermanus.

We had the most wonderful stay at this lovely hotel.......we could not wish for a better view than the one we had for two days. The self-catering apartment was clean, well equipped, spacious and situated in a perfect spot. The beds are comfortable and we slept like babies with the sound of the ocean coming through our open windows. Friendly... More

We (family of 3 adults) stayed at 45 Marine Drive for 2 nights while in Hermanus to see the whales from shore and to do a shark cage dive. 45 Marine Drive is a building full of apartments, some of which are occupied permanently and some of which are rented to tourists. The building had been recently bought by the... More

We stayed in a three bedroom apartment in September 2012. We had a breathtaking seaview! The apartment was very spacious and clean, with a huge patio overlooking the sea. We saw the whales every day from our patio! Very affordable self catering accommodation with parking inside the complex. Walking distance to all the shops. We will definitely return.

I've written a very good review for this establishment a few years ago - this was my 6th stay here in the past 12 years... First - nothing beats the view!! A+...but... Unfortunately the place is not really keeping up with time...the only thing that has changed in the past 12 years is a new TV... We found the place... More

The facility is very nice and spacious, self catering with beautiful seaview. It is within walking distance from the town centre where mst of the activities and restaurants are located.A bistro is located next to it that serves divine food. We had a fantastic stay

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
