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

We were welcomed with a smile and then treated in a friendly and warm manner. Super room, kept to the very highest levels. Breakfasts were great and lots of choice to be had. Nothing was a trouble to Barry and his team (including Scotty the dog!). I would recommend staying here to anyone wanting a good time in Hermanus!

We stayed for 2 nights in the mountain view room. Great breakfast and spacious clean accommodation with its own private secure car park. The manager Barry is the real treasure here, full of local tips and advice which we made full use of. There is a well stocked "honesty" mini bar on the upstairs landing with wine, beer, and soft...

There is a long walk into town from the guest house (20 minutes) but the cliff path is vety scenic. We had the Fynbos room and from the balcony you can have wonderful views of the sea. The carpet in the room needs upgrading & the electrical sockets could be in a better position. The tea/coffee tray is very difficult... More

My wife and I just spent the most amazing weekend at this guesthouse. From the moment we arrived, we were treated like royalty by Barry who is a big asset to the guesthouse as this kind of treatment is often lacking at other establishments. Our sea facing room was amazing, clean and we could see whales from the comfort of... More

booked a room last minute, so only the mountain view was available. We were greeted warmly by Barry who took perfectly care of us. The room was spaceous and clean, with everything one expects. Barry has got lots of local information for you. Breakfast was great, with fresh fruit, own made granolo and bread. The guest house is on walking... More
