“Nice hotel, good location”
Reviewed November 15, 2011

This is hotel is right beside the beach in Hermanus. Its a small hotel with only a number of staff but was adequate. We got a partial sea view room and the interiors were done beautifully. The hotel have a bar but doesn't have a restaurant, but there enuf good restaurants jus across the road which is only a stone-throw distance from the hotel. very cordial staff, clean atmosphere.

Room Tip: You got two types of sea views, one overlooking the road, shops and beach and another one overlookin...

Stayed two nights, 13th and 14th of November 2011. All the staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are big and comfortable with flat screen TV, sofa, queen sized bed, small kitchenette, deep bath, toilet and shower. The rooms are stylish and very comfortable. Tip get a room with view and you can watch the whales from your own balcony so take your binoculars.
Whale season is August-September-October and November but they are starting to leave the bay now.

Room Tip: A room with a view.

Dear Management of Harbour House Hotel,

It has been an absolute please staying with you. The venue, rooms, location is all terrific, i could not find any fault with anything.
The view we had from our room over the pool area and the old harbour was just magnificent, especially when the whales was out playing. Your staff is extremely friendly, cleaners are all greeting, regardless if they were busy or not and your night shift security was friendly and quick to allocate a parking bay for me, at a fantastic rate of R20 a nite,

I can really recommend the Harbour House Hotel, i could not have asked for a better weekend away,
Thank you very much

If you are on holiday in the cape, then you must go to Hermanus and you must stay at Harbour House. Lots of hotels have a view of the bay but this is has to be the prime spot. Book early and make sure you get a room at the front over looking the harbour.
The rooms look a bit "pastey" in the pictures but actually they are very stylish and very good size. The kitchen area is a nice touch giving you a little more space but really the restaurants are too good to stay in. The new harbour house development looks as though it will be superb, but I hope it doesn't lose the personal touch that the guest house has. This was one of those, died and gone to heaven places....and I haven't even mentioned the Whales!
