First impressions were good and Sanmarie was welcoming and helpful. Our bedroom, with balcony overlooking the bay was very comfortable and well fitted out. A fridge on our landing was very handy for wine etc. Barry is the star of the show. I felt I had known him for years. Terrific humour and constant attention to detail made our stay... More

As many others have said Harbour Vue is a great option for a stay in Hermanus, the only drawback is the location being slightly out of town but that was known in advance so not a complaint. But Barrys care and attention make the experience so much more - thanks very much for a memorable stay!

We only had one night here but we were made to feel right at home from the second we arrived. Barry is quite a character and gave us a good comedic tour of the property. He told us to make sure we had a look at the front of the house in the morning because he had a surprise for... More

The house itself is lovely , spacious and is filled with lots of tasteful art and antiques. The rooms are vey spacious and comfortable with high quality linen etc. The breakfasts are delicious. The best room I think is the Southern Right as it has fantastic views over the sea and is accessed through a guest lounge which almost feels... More

It was the third time we spent time at HV Guesthouse and it is simply fantastic. Barry is still there ( I hope for a long time) and is mastering everything you need. His always good mood makes the stay even more enjoyable. Thx Mr Barry for everything. We love to stay in Hermanus and hope to come back soon.... More

Barry & team, you rock. The Harbour View Guest House is the place to stay, competitive rates and service that will blow you away! The Southern right is the best room, especially with the extra lounge and a view to die for from the balcony. Highly Recomended! Sanmarie thanks for an awesome Guesthouse will definately visit you in September again.... More

Pros: Great staff. Barry was a great host. Lovely premises and rooms. Comfy bed, great shower, lovely breakfast. Wonderful view. Good restaurant and bar nearby (at old harbour). Location is right on the cliff walk which is fantastic. Cons: Location is a little far from town for a walk home after dinner (but we did it anyway!). A family member... More

Difficult to say what is the best bit about the Harbour Vue but on reflection in must be the outstanding welcome and help throughout our stay provided by Barry. That is not to say that the room FYNBOS wasn't good because it was and the breakfast was probably the best we have had this trip. The location is great for... More

We had such a wonderful stay at Harbour Vue. Our room was really lovely with a wonderful view. Barry is brilliant & takes great care of you, and makes a scrumptious breakfast for your day ahead! The location is great as you can walk along the coast watching the whales as you go & if you are lucky you can... More

On arrival were greeted by Barry who is the manager. He is a source of information and also very funny. The rooms are very comfortable with balcony overlooking the ocean. We even saw the whales from there. Lovely coastal path from the guest house to Hermanus which is a delightful town. Breakfast was excellent with home made bread and jams.... More
