We aare a family of five travelling from Capetown around the Garden Route for my sons 21st. We arrived quite late at Les Baleines having had a few problems. Our host Teresa was most welcoming and very understanding. We stayed for 2 nights as we were on a tight schedule and we were going shark cage diving in the area... More

Nice guest house, but for us something was lacking. The host was rather invisible, this was a little disappointing as I see the personal interaction being important for such a property to act as a differential between a guest house and a larger hotel. The property was very clean and rather fancy. Huge bath! The issue is that it is... More

We recently spent 1 night here on our Garden Route tour and thought it was wonderful. Was lovely to be away from the town and have total tranquility for a night. The hosts were very accomodating and had booked us dinner at The Burgundy which was superb. We stayed in the Mountain Monkey room which was quiet and luxurious with... More

My husband I are have stayed here about 5 times now, and it is always pleasant. This time round we stayed in the room next to the dining area (only realized it was this one until we got there). It did get quite noisy, so will certainly not recommend this and suggest you properly understand which room you will be... More

We stayed here for two nights. It is situated just outside of the town centre on a hillside withe views to the sea. The facilities are superb, the blue whale suite was lovely, as described it is a suite with its own doors to the pool and sun deck, there were lots of lovely little homely touches in the room...

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.
