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

As we near the end of 3 weeks in SA (and 6 different guest houses), this by far has been our favourite. The room was immaculate with a stunning view and breakfast was great too. The real star of the show though is the host Barry. He is the most charming and lovely man you could ever wish to meet... More

What a lovely house Harbour Vue is. All the rooms are great but only two have a sea view. It's not a problem though as there is an extra balcony at the front where anyone can sit to enjoy the view. Barry helped to make our stay special as nothing was too much trouble and his fruit plate on our... More

Second time in the Harbour Vue and we again thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This is a wonderfully relaxed and charming guesthouse with only 4 rooms that is located at Westcliff Road, close to the New Harbour and just opposite to the cliff path. Barry, the guest house manager, looked after us in a truly delightful way. The rooms are nicely... More

We stayed two nights here in November. We were welcomed by Barry...what a gem he is! While the inn is beautiful Barry's presence and constant looking after you has equal weight in our stellar opinion of this guest house. Our room was beautifully appointed and comfortable, had its own balcony from which we could see the ocean, a nice bathroom,... More

We returned again to this delightful guest house overlooking the harbour at Hermanus because we love the sea view rooms and the manager (Barry) is a delight. We would thoroughly recommend Harbour View Guest house where the comfort & ambience is wonderful.

We stayed here for 2 nights in November are were so impressed with the warm welcome we received, nothing was to much trouble for our hosts. The breakfast was 5 star with a superb choice.
