We stopped at Hermanus for lunch after a recommendation the previous night by some fellow travellers. Within 10 minutes of arriving into this quaint, clean, beautiful town, we made the decision to stay in Hermanus for a couple of nigts. We wandered over to the Harbour House Hotel to make some inquiries, and even though it was a day prior to the Whale Festival, they accommodated us for 2 nights without having made a booking. We were immediately upgraded from the basic room to the romantic room which had stunning views across the harbour and was perfect for whale watching. My husband stepped out to the balcony the first morning to see several whales frollicking right in front of us! We're not really breakfast people but it was included and was just fine. We had dinner one evening in the restaurant as well which was lovely and the staff couldn't be more attentive. My only criticism would be the wifi - had to go to the business centre downstairs to connect - however when we checked in, they did acknowledge that this was an issue and they were looking into changed providers. The weather unfortunately was not pleasant, but would loved to have walked along the coastal path each morning. We will definitely return to Hermanus and the Harbour House Hotel and would recommend it to anyone.
