The hotel feels very friendly, excellent breakfast, lovely rooms and very friendly staff.
I would highly recommend it as a family friendly hotel. The views from the restaurant are stunning and very centrally located.

Our second visit to Misty Waves hotel was a wonderful experience.
We were upgraded on arrival since there was a room still available with magnificent sea views.
The hotel is a mere few minutes walk to the centre of town which was very comfortable.

The staff and their service and the love and effection this place excudes is worth mentioning.
a Visit to the wine estates in the Hemel & Aarde Valley was a pleasant experience and compete
extremely well with similar areas.

We have noted several upgrading to the centre of town which was pleasant to the eye.
The Whalehouse Museum was a gem and worth visiting.

We will definitely stay at Misty Waves on future travels.

This was the best hotel on our trip in SA. Had to visit my mother who lives in Cape Town and we went on a round trip of the Western Cape. Beautiful town Hermanus and Misty Waves Hotel was the perfect setting. Minutes from town centre but not the hassle of late night clubbing in the mid centre of town.
We totally loved the ocean views and the restaurant and our special penthouse suite. Which was amazing. Will be having our family get together there next year with all the siblings. Cannot wait to introduced this little gem to them.

We stayed here as a couple recently whilst touring. Our suite (room 404) was a very good size with separate sitting area and a veranda with nice views across the seafront. The view is stated (very honestly) as 'partial sea view'. This is solely because there are houses across the road between the hotel and the sea. The veranda is on the first floor, so the impact of these buildings is minimal. The pool was very quite, clean and pleasant. The car was safely parked between locked gates. In fact the whole place was secure behind these gates. We had dinner in the hotel restaurant and the food was very good. Throughout our stay the staff were extremely courteous and helpful. The town and seafront is a short and pleasant stroll.

Stated simply - this is a beautiful hotel. The restaurant on the top floor serves excellent food and the tables by the window, if you can book them provide an beautiful view. Especially nice (beside the decor of the rooms), is the arrangement of the many seating areas in alcoves that overlook the main floor creating a very lovely appearance.

Be aware that the numbering of residences on the street is not sequential (e.g. #49 could be next to #65 which could be followed by residence #3) - so Misty Waves is in reality about 2 blocks away from where it should be on any map. That was not the fault of the hotel - but does merit a mention for future visitors.

Unfortunetaly, the price we paid was well in excess of the internet price shown here - but in all fairness we just popped in and requested a room (since we could not obtain internet access having come from a hotel in Namibia which did not have wireless) - so a word to the wise - use TripAdvisor and you will be very happy with your choice.

Room Tip: Has an outdoor pool. Excellent view of the waterfront from the balcony in certain rooms (#202)

A visit to this delightful hotel has become an annual "must do" during our stay in South Africa.
We bought my cousin & her husband with us this year, and all of us were enchanted by the wonderful setting, and lovely sea views from our first floor suites. I was particularly pleased with the restaurant, having been a little critical at the lack of choice a couple of years ago. This has now been transformed, and we stayed in to eat for each night of our stay. My cousin, who lives locally, was bowled over with the Karoo lamb, and my wife & I particularly enjoyed their line fish. Get down to breakfast early, and the sea views from the window tables are stunning.
The service generally was extremely attentive, the rooms beautifully furnished and very comfortable. Misty Waves is simply a gem.
