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

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
