Thank you for a lovely stay in Hermanus! This guest house is beautiful and the staff are extremely thoughtful and hospitable. The location is perfect just above the misty cliffs path and minutes from the habour for whale watching. Loved it!

Great place to stay for a couple of days! Berry will do anything to make your stay as comfortable as possible, on top of the delicious breakfast! The rooms are spacious and well decorated. We actually seen whales from our bedroom.

Staying at Harbour Vue was an absolute treat. We were welcomed so warmly that we felt like family. The house is adorable and so comfy. We even spotted a whale from the balcony. The breakfast was delicious and Barry provided such excellent service. Staying here is a must.

There were three of us travelling and we had two rooms at the Harbour View in Hermanus. The accommodation is truly fantastic: Clean, neat and fully equipped - perfectly positioned close to town (but not too close!) and close to the harbour area. Spectacular views and within two minutes walk of the beach / coast walk. As good as the... More

Barry was one of the best hosts we had during our two week tour around South Africa. He did everything that was expected from a good host (offering to book reservations at restraunts and whale watching). The rooms were a very good size, with big beds and good sized bathrooms. Harbour rock grill was very good. Also 'lemon butta' along... More

A perfect haven with lovely view of the harbour, ideal for relaxing and visiting Hermanus. The rooms were beautiful, comfortable and impecable clean. The breakfast was superb and Barry, the host, was very professional, helpful and did everything to make us feel welcome. We would definitely recommend it!

This is the second time that we have stayed at Harbour Vue, and the décor, comfort, views and the service which Barry gives remain of the highest standard. Located close to the new harbour, but need a car to drive into the town centre in the evenings.

Situated 1km from the town center and a few hundred meters from the harbor. The view is breathtaking! The rooms are beautiful and comfortable with en suite bathroom. The breakfast is superb and Barry, the host, is a hoot. Definitely a must for local and international guests

The view over the ocean and new harbour from our room, Southern Right, was lovely but unfortunately our stay was a little tarnished by not being given our booked choice of room, Fynbos, which had a balcony. We were told this was because the owner had received a longer booking than ours a few months after confirming our booking. Southern... More
