Our group had problems getting anyone to carry luggage to and from our rooms. The service at breakfast was not very good either---no coffee offered, and no milk for coffee available. Apparently not enough employees on duty. Our room had a sliver of an ocean view, between two other buildings. But the room was nice enough, and was fairly large.... More

We stayed in one of their suites, we had one beautiful room with a living room and bath in the bedroom, where you could enjoy watching the tv. We were very close to the sea front and got picture of a whale basking in the bay from the veranda.

Location is brilliant, fronting the water and close to the restaurants, shops etc. Decor is finished to a very high standard, really nicely done. Comfort is 5/5. The bed is massive, really comfortable, with a really nice couch in the room as well. The food was brilliant. Had lunch and breakfast here, and was very impressed with both. Lastly, the... More

We had a beautiful suite across from the main building. Appeared to be fairly new - all perfect condition. Breakfast was across the road and we weren't too impressed by it(we saw some guests sending some cooked items back) but we stuck with the continental items and it was more than enough for us. Location can't be beaten - we... More

Great location hotel, clean, neat and great standard. Breakfast was delicious and high level! Ocean front at the center of the town. the only draw back was the fact that we expected to stay in the building we had seen in the photos, but we were taken to a near by building which also belongs to the hotel, and clearly...

My wife and I stayed at the hotel in early August 2016. The location is perfect and our room overlooked the bay. Unfortunately for us, August is early whale session, so we did not manage to see any during our 3 day stay. Resuarants are a stone throw away and the view of the bay from our bedroom was priceless.... More

Loved the location and the quaint garden with pool overlooking the bay. The rooms are comfortable and having the kitchenette useful. The Internet access was irritating. It was not working properly and it is rationed despite being advertised as complimentary in our package. Could not connect multiple devices so had to use a hotspot. No big deal but unnecessary irritation... More

A lovely hotel right on the sea front overlooking the bay, lovely pool, we were lucky enough to have rooms on the front which are large and spacious and we could lay in bed and watch the whales in the bay, the room was nice and clean and the staff very pleasant.

We stayed here for a night on our honeymoon. The room was lovely, nice and big with a great bathroom incorporated into the room with heaters to help ward off the cold at night. Few small things let it down though: some of the staff weren't very friendly and the TV was tiny. Small things but SA has such good... More

The Harbour House Hotel professes to allocate ocean views however like many hotels the reality is that unless lucky a partial view is the most one can expect. Our room was set back behind the hotel but the sea could be seen at the top of our picture window. The rooms are spacious and spotlessly clean & more akin to... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated in the heart of the historical village, Harbour House Hotel has been modelled after its original architecture, a thatched roof seaside manor house built in 1920. Being perfectly located above the Old Harbour, the hotel's understated luxury is offset by the soothing surrounds of the ocean. The magnificent Lookout Terrace invites guests to relax around the infinity pool overlooking the ocean and savour a sundowner from the pool bar in the Pavilion. Harbour House Hotel consists of the restored Manor House with intimate Romantic Rooms, all with views, as well as the New Wing with 18 spacious suites, featuring sophisticated modern decor, a kitchenette and lounge leading out onto a private balcony. Guests are afforded luxury at every turn, from 100% fine white cotton bedding to marble and granite finishes. Sleek lines and carefully curated art pieces add to the modern aesthetic of each room. ... more   less
