One would be forgiven to think that, as one approaches it, The Marine would be nothing special. HOW WRONG COULD YOU BE. What a wonderful place to stay. Hamish and his staff from the check-in staff to the parking attendants and the housekeeping staff to the restaurant staff were all attentive, friendly and concerned that both my wife qould enkoy...

The hotel is very well situated as well as extremely well designed and interiors are quite pretty. The unfortunate part was the service at the hotel was poor and especially the concierge coudnt be bothered to really help out or direct to what could be good things to do in Hermanus. We were booked in the hotel as honeymooners and... More

Thank you for comments and I am sorry that you felt we did not go the extra mile. I have spoken to my concierge who assures me that there must have been some sort of miscommunication in your dealings with her. If only you had communicated your dissatisfaction we would would have been able to find a solution. I do... More

Beautiful, well-managed and serviced with excellent staff. Nothing lacked at this hotel. Definitely recommend. The little touches were great, and the amenities were fabulous. Will always go back when in Hermanus!

From the outside this hotel is the most stunning of all of the ones we saw in Hermanus and really is as stunning from the inside as it is outside. You can see whales out at sea from the dining room and day rooms in the hotel. It leads on to the Hermanus cliff top path where you can do... More

Amazing start to our holiday. Arrived early in the morning direct from Cape Town and were welcomed with open arms. This fantastic service continued for the next three evenings and set the benchmark for the rest of our holiday! Saw the whales on several occasions from the gardens of the hotel which was an added bonus. You also need to... More

We spent three days at the hotel. My wife and I cannot fault the helpfulness of all the staff. The rooms and food are first class. After checkout a courtesy room was made available at no charge to freshen up before our night flight home. The cliff top position means you can see the whales while having a very good... More

An exquisite hotel in a perfect location - a great view of the whales while enjoying Eggs Benedict for breakfast! Both the Seafood and the Pavilion restaurants provide excellent food and ambience.

Disclaimer--didn't stay here, but went in to have some tea while, and get out of the wind/cold while Whale watching. BEAUTIFUL hotel. The bar/tea area is very well appointed and decorated. Huge windows/doors that look out into the ocean. Very relaxing. We all had teas and coffees, but a full service bar is also situated. While we were looking around... More

Not many 'locals' have the opportunity to stay in this beloved hotel overlooking Walker Bay, being pampered by the dedicated team. We were hosting friends from the UK who wanted to explore the area and see the whales. We achieved all. From the time of arrival and the warm efficient welcome, to sadly our departure two days later, we were... More
