We had a lovely stay in les Balinese . It's a very nice easy going place. It was very clean and cosy. The Staff were very helpful , especially Teresa . It's located a little outside hermanus near one of the beaches but local taxi service is available if needed .

Breakfast was quite plain. No fresh orange juice, no fresh cheese or meat platters. I was really disappointed. Everything just preserved so that it can be used for the next one if not touched. The worst was the coffee! The view was also not as impressive. The bar facilities do not cater for any snacks, chocolate bars, peanuts etc. Just... More

We spent 5 nights at Les Baleines and being honest it was probably a night or two too much. It is a lovely house,the staff were good and the cleanliness could not be faulted.BUT the position on the edge of town is a bit isolated and is very quiet (as is Hermanus itself).Luckily we had booked a car before leaving...

Les Baleines is situated outside of Hermanus on a housing estate, which disappointed us somewhat as we could not walk into town. Deluxe rooms were large and one had a lovely balcony with sun loungers. Attie's taxis were a bit of a rip off after Cape Town - 400 rand for a return trip compared to the tuctuc price of... More

Having had a long drive due to road closures it was a pleasant surprise to find that our hostess, Teresa, had already got us booked into a superb restaurant for the evening. Not only that, she'd booked our boat trip for the next day too! She put the 8 of us into the seperate annex rather than the main house,... More

Very enjoyable stay. The room was pleasantly furnished and provided more than everything we needed for our stay. The bathroom was well laid out and the shower was good. There were good communal lounges and balconies to take in the incredible coastal view, and two well maintained pools that could have been used. Yes we saw whales from the balcony... More

Stayed here during our honeymoon in September 2013. It is a beautiful guest house with a really homely feel. Our room was amazing and so comfortably. They had conveniently booked us dinner and onto a whale watching tour as we would not have managed to get in on either otherwise. Sadly the whale watching tour was cancelled but Hermanus offers...

Very pleasant stay. Teresa couldn't have been more helpful, pre-booking restaurants and suggesting whale watching trips. Rooms very tastefully decorated and comfortable, with wifi in the room. The restaurant she recommended was absolutely excellent in fact we went back the second night. It's a little way out of town but taxis are inexpensive and it is well positioned for the... More

Located high on the slopes overlooking the bay this guest house was the first stop for our Cape Town to Shamwari Reserve trip and set the bar high for our subsequent accommodation. ((There had obviously been a recent plumbing leak in the en-suite but the cause had been dealt with and simply awaited very minor decorative touch up - nothing... More
