Walked into this hotel looking for a cooked breakfast after many long miles driving whilst we were on tour. Sunday 19th April at 11a.m. Woman at the bar tells us that breakfast is not available. When we asked "already"? We were snapped at in no uncertain terms and told" did we not know what was involved in preparing lunch.!?" Quite... More

I had lunch here today and have to admit the choices on the menu were good and the quality of the food fine. Both my partner and I opted for the fish and chips and we weren't disappointed. Only gripe I would have was that we were sitting in the glass area at the front of the hotel which was... More

Spent 2 days at The Harbour House Hotel self catering apartments. I would rate our apartment Lighthouse View as top end accommodation. Super clean, above average fixtures and fittings, modern and very clean. The kitchen/living area was large and most comfortable. It had all the necessary appliances and a nice touch was the coffee.tea and condiments not normally supplied in... More

Always great service from Jude and the staff. Food is top quality and the rooms are modern and comfortable with stunning views of the harbour and bay. We are regular visitors and are made to feel like family every time we stay. Also dog friendly which is a big bonus to us.

With a pool which must be the envy of every hotel in Hermanus, every other aspect of the hotel is beyond reproach. The staff helpull and friendly, the breakfast is a delight and the rooms so comfortable. The location could not be better, right on the waterfront, but also right in town.
