Location is not quite everything. The "Marine" certainly seems to have the best or one of the best locations in Hermanus. The hotel is a throwback to a time of quiet elegance. Our room/suite had a partial view of the ocean and very clean. We were very disappointed ,however, by the fact that the furnishings and general decor was beyond... More

Although Hermanus itself was not what I expected, the Marine Hermanus far exceeded my expectations. Very clean, wonderful; restaurant, great pool, complete spa. In short it is a luxury hotel well worth the few dollars more you may have to spend to stay there. The hotel itself has a lot of history to it and is fun to stay in... More

We stopped by the Marine for a late lunch, and even though we had no reservation - the manager went out of his way to get us a table. The views were amazing, the food was amazing, and the service was even better. Very knowledgable staff and a great wine list. We would definitely visit it again. Note: during whale... More

Ideal location, over loking the cliffs on the sea front, within easy 5 mins walk of all shops, restaurants and bars. Our room was large and very comfortable. The doors opened onto a small terrace with table and chairs again overllooking the cliff. Breakfast was plentifull and very good. The food in the restaurant was excellent and the service in... More

We enjoyed both the Seafood restaurant (Bistro style) and the mre formal Pavillion restaurant very much. Excellent quality of food and very friendly service with a smile and humor. A great place that we intend to go back to. Sibylle & Bert

We had been on a 6 week journey by the time our tired bones got to Hermanus.....and there was The Marine waiting to comfort and pamper us. The accommodations were spacious, very well-appointed and cozy. The staff made every effort to attend to our needs and was courteous and friendly. The location along the Garden Route, high above the crashing... More

We wish we'd stayed for longer! This upmarket B&B is in the most stunning location on the whale-watching coast. The whole house has been designed to make you want look out to sea, but it doesn't scrimp on the inside, providing beautiful bedrooms and bathrooms, with plenty of room. There's a lounge for residents on the first floor with a... More

My wife and I stayed at the Marine for two nights in December 2014. We had visited the hotel on previous occasions for food and refreshments and decided we would like to stay and see what it was like. We were not disappointed and would certainly stay again without any hesitation. It is furnished and presented to a very high... More

We do hope to see you again in the near future and until then, safe travels and wishing you a very happy new... More

So our first stop in my honeymoon was in Hermanus - The Marien Hotel. The staff greet us well and made us felt at home. They were so helpful and patient with our questions for the the time we stayed there. The room was amazing and the view was stunning. They have also helped my father to send me flowers... More

We greatly enjoyed our 3 night stay last week. Raymond, supervising the car park set a really positive tone for the rest of our visit. Staff were friendly and helpful without being obsequious- all of them. On our first night - a Sunday - we ate in The Seafood Restaurant. We enjoyed our meal. The atmosphere was convivial yet not...
