We have nothing but praise for this property. We enjoyed everything, from the welcome to the views to the amenities. Being so close to the cliff walk was an extar treat. Barry was an excellent host and Sanmarie was very gracious.

Harbour Vue is a gorgeous guest house in Hermanus. The rooms are large, airy and beautifully furnished. Breakfast was delicious with home made muffins, choice of eggs, etc. and great coffee. Barry is a wonderful host and has lots of information about events and places to see. It was handy for us because our family lives just around the corner,... More

Best place to stay in Hermanus! Our second time round was awesome. Barry deserves special mention. He is just the perfect host and quite an entertaining person, good cook also! The room was cosy, beautiful sea view added joy to our overall experience of a lovely destination.

We only stayed one night, but everything was wonderful, from the welcome to the room to the breakfast. Our room (#6) had a view of the sea, an enormous, beautifully appointed bathroom, and a gorgeous comfortable bed. I'd like to come back one day and stay for a week.

Family arrived to be greeted by Barry who is a major asset to the establishment. We found his energy to be very uplifting whereby he goes the extra mile to assist the guests & make them feel welcome. Found the rooms to be very well kept whereby we immediately felt at home. The location is great for the Hermanus cliff... More

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

Great ocean view, the staff are very friendly and helpful. Have a nice stroll along the cliff path up to the little town. Great photo opportunities of the wave spray. Roads to the guest house is in a very good condition.

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
