A fantastic little place with really personal service. Amazing views from the balcony. A short walk down the hill to a great beach. Breakfast was perfect. We needed some help to sort some issues out (nothing to do with the hotel) and the owner Theresa could not have been more helpful. She really went the extra mile to help us.... More

Delightful , a little remote from the town centre, only 5 minutes by car. Breakfast very good, room very good, the bathroom was very spacious with a large shower area. Beautiful view from the veranda looking at the sea. Staff pre booked a restaurant for us which we liked, as we choose to go there the following evening

This guesthouse is located in a residential neighborhood circa 10 minutes drive from Hermanus. Perhaps the onus was on ourselves to research the location a bit better but we were expecting it to be closer to the town. Had the weather been better we might have made use of the nearby beach which would have compensated for the distance from... More

The somewhat harsh commentary from some who have stayed here was we thought unfounded. The vast majority of guests are self-drive,so can get around, and its a pleasure to be in a quiet part of the established secure suburb of Voelklip with lovely views. Not all rooms face the ocean or the mountain, but there is great comfort, and intelligent... More

This place has all the trimmings, elegance and style that could fool you into thinking it is great ... BUT ... The 'welcome' should have been more informative and warmer. We were given misinformation about places to eat nearby (to replace the restaurant that they had chosen and pre-booked - after a long drive it was too far to drive... More

This is a lovely accommodation, no expense has been spared furnishing it with a nautical and antique theme also our wet room was very impressive. We had not realised however that we were actually quite a drive from Hermanus. Was not sure what to think of the idea of a restaurant booking being made for us which we had the... More

Secure and quirky accommodation with lots of artefacts and artwork on the theme of whaling and shipping. There is a reasonable sized plunge pool on the decking area which was great for cooling down in. You are a short stroll from the beach here and although it's a short drive from the centre of Hermanus I felt that this was... More

Our three visits to South Africa over the last four years have shown that guesthouse accommodation is generally of a very high standard. Les Baleines was no exception to this rule. The attention to detail in the lounge areas and dining room was phenomenal. A huge number of artefacts relating to the whaling heritage of Hermanus together with quality books... More

This house is in a residential area a couple of miles from Hermanus, no restaurants nearby. The house itself is lovely, good size rooms and bathrooms but I felt like an intruder in someone's home and therefore difficult to relax in.We found the staff unfriendly and only available by phone even when you were outside the room you knew they...
