We only stayed at this hotel for 1 night but the hotel is positioned in the prime spot in the town. The views are breath-taking. As we had previous arrangements in the evening we only ate breakfast at the hotel which offered a reasonable buffet and hot food cooked to order. The swimming pool was in a courtyard so didn't...

Certainly the best hotel in Hermanus and perfect for a 3 - 4 day stay in the area. We stayed in 7 4/5* hotels in 2 weeks and apart from The One and Only Hotel in Cape Town, this was the best. Food and wine prices in South Africa are noticeably less than in the UK or Europe and the... More

We love The Marine and will come back again I am sure. This is our second visit. But there are things that need to be improved to warrant the Relais and Chateau listing. The food is good but it is not exceptional (eg no fresh juice or special fresh fruit for breakfast) and the main dining room is closed on... More

A little piece of heaven in Hermanus is the luxurious The Marine Hotel. This establishment has a wonderful team of staff happy to oblige at every turn. The hotel itself is very comfortable and clean and our stay could not have been better- we would highly recommend this establishment.

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
