We had 3 nights in this very chic hotel. The views of the ocean were amazing . The only criticism was it was quite a long way from town so had to get a taxi which was easy to get from the hotel. Direct line through to a very good taxi service. Really enjoyed our stay

This hotel is ideal for travellers looking for peace and quiet. It is beautifully decorated with a sea animal theme throughout: it must have taken years to build such a collection of items and memorabilia ! While the place itself is situated away from the town centre, there is a wonderful view of Hermanus bay from the living room and... More

quiet so very nice, had the pool to ourselves, even though it was very cold. The room are very nice especially the shower as it is just wood on the floor and it feels like you have lots of space. the snooker table was so fun I played as soon I got back to the hotel and until I went... More

Well I suppose it has to rain sometimes in South Africa and seaside towns off season are much the same everywhere a bit dreary and sad. It's not hard to find and only a few minutes from Hermanus proper. Nice room with (wet!) view of the sea and distant waves to rock you to sleep. After a run of full... More

We were surprised at how far out of town we had to drive to find this place. We knew the town would probably be quiet as we were out of season, so instead of staying two nights we had knocked it down to one. the guest house its self is nicely done with a large dining and chilling area with... More

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
