We stayed from 14th May 2015 until 17th May 2015. The Seafood Restaurant - the first evening the food was very good but on our 2nd last evening we tried the vegetable soup and it wasn't as we have imagined. More like sweet corn soup which was absolutely terrible. The Pasta dish was a bit drab and needed a bit... More

We arrived early afternoon at the Marine Hotel, perched on the cliffs. Our itinerary stated a luxury room with roll in shower confirmed but although we were taken to a lovely room with sea view, the toilet and shower were not accessible. The manageress immediately offered us an alternative: a suite with a 4 poster bed, large sitting area with... More

We have recently returned to the UK from a stay at the Marine and would love to come back. We were given the Suite with a balcony over the front door, unfortunately the weather wasn't quite good enough for us to sit out on the balcony very often. The food and service here were brilliant. I booked myself in for... More

Our fourth visit to Hermanus and the Marine. Perfect location with very friendly staff. Lovely dining options; the taster menu in the Pavillion was excellent, and the more informal Seafood Restaurant was just as nice for something stylish but a bit less low key. One highlight is to enjoy afternoon tea in the bar - fab selection of cakes and... More

Ideally positioned, right in front of the sea, with excellent staff and excellent restaurants within the hotel. All staff remembered you by name and even which cocktail I ordered when I went back for cocktails the next day! The breakfast where good- both the buffet and the cooked one. The bar and lounge area face the sea, and have tables... More

After Morukuru Family, Madikwe, and Taj Hotel, Cape Town, I had invited my friends to spend Easter with me at The Marine, Hermanus. We had 1 suite and 2 rooms - different in colors and furniture. They were all special and had a lot of ambience, like the rest of the hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and... More

We were served the most delicious lunch by a very friendly team and had such a great afternoon at the Marine, which overlooks the beautiful Hermanus bay. Highly recommendable, pricey but great value for money. All aspects of the restaurant was outstanding.

Fantastic food to be had in the seafood restuarant with great views decor, staff and cuisine. Book the round table and share the vibe with the chef and support team. Wine menu complimented the great food.

We got a great room at The Marine. Lot of place, very comfortable, great bathroom, lots of natural light and a nice balcony/garden. Best of all is the staff. WIFI was better than any other we try in ZA, but not great.
