We recently spent two nights at this Guest House. On arrival we were shown round by Lena who was very helpful. Our room and bathroom were very nice. We had a balcony overlooking the small pool which gave us an impressive view to the fantastic beach. We could hear the sea from our room even though Les Baleines is not... More

We stayed here for one night in the blue whale suite, beautiful room with double doors opening onto swimming pool deck, this is a perfect home away from home. The staff had booked us a table at Burgundy that evening in Hermanus, it was fabulous. Lots of luxurious little touches and loved the honesty bar, so we could help ourselves.... More

We stayed here for 2 nights on our Garden route journey. The property is lovely with a lot of charm and character very well themed to the whale heritage. The deck area had great views out to the bay. Our room was spacious and nicely decorated with a lovely bathroom and large terrace with loungers. Very light and bright though... More

We stayed here for one night in the surprisingly nice town of Hermanus. The place was beautifully payed out, with exquisite decorations and a real personal touch created by Theresa Louw. Has a great view and access to the wonderful beach. My wife was taking interior decoration ideas from the room it was so nice.

Thoroughly enjoyed our two nights here - impeccable interior decoration, light floods through the floor to ceiling windows and we were able to watch whales cruising along and whacking their tails around from all the sea facing rooms (inclu. Communal library and breakfast room). We had rain for most of one of the days so took a drive our to... More

Just want to say a big thanks to Natalie and the other lovely lady (who's name I didn't get) for minding us so well. As the guest house does not do evening meals and is out a bit from Hermanus Natalie had kindly booked a restaurant for us in Hermanus and showed us how we could arrange for a taxi... More

Just like other travellers we were initially a bit concerned that we were out on the edge of the town but it didn't spoil our trip. It's a quick drive into town either in your own car or taxi. We had read that the owner books you in to 'Burgundy' for dinner and onto a whale watching trip. We appreciated... More

Stayed one night in Les Baleines and we were sorry we did not book to stay more than one night! The decor is beautiful from the main entrance to the bedrooms and there is a beautiful pool too. Beds comfortable. Safe and secure parking behind the main entrance. Guesthouse is located a short drive from Hermanus town. Teresa had pre... More

We stayed here for 2 nights on honeymoon. This place is out of Hermanus town centre about 4K roughly. It's situated on a hill with lovely views of the bay. At this time of the year there are so many whales in the bay that you can regularly see them from the balcony. They had pre booked us for dinner... More
