“Nothing to write home about”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2005

Stayed at the Auburge several years ago but only recently discovered this review facility, so future visitors maybe interested in my stay. It is a pretty building and we had a large room with partial sea-view. The beds were comfortable but the rest of the room was looking a bit tired. The bathroom was in need of refurbishment. However, the staff were very friendly and helpful and the off site restaurant run by the hotel made for a good evening meal. Breakfast was also taken at this restaurant but in a different part to evening meals. This was more akin to a greasy spoon and was very disappointing. The Auburge is very central but we found Hermanus to be quiet and relatively uninteresting although we did see the whales in the bay which went some way to making the visit more memorable.

We had dinner in the Marine one evening and this was quite superb.

Lovely small hotel in the centre of Hermanus, a few meters from the ocean (no beach) and good restaurants. Built in the style of a Provencale Villa, the Auberge Burgundy also has its own well-known restaurant across the street. The owners take personal care of your well-being. Good value for money. Good for whale watching, but not for swimming. Fantastic beaches are just a five minute drive away.
