Accommodations good for land based whale watching

Hi! We will be in Cape Town next August and plan on going to Gansbaai for white shark cage diving. I believe August is a good month for whales and we would like to find a place to stay that is close to an area that has great land based whale watching opportunities. Sightings from our room would be ideal.

Have a look at Harbour House Hotel in Hermanus, brilliantly located and within easy reach for whale watching. August is the start of the whales arriving in the bay at Hermanus. The numbers might be low at the same time, but who knows.

I enjoyed my stay at The Auberge Burgundy in Hermanus. It's literally a hop, skip and jump from rocks that overlook the bay.
