“An outstanding B&B”
Reviewed March 4, 2012

We visited this B&B after trying to find somewhere at the Information Centre so had no prior knowledge of the place but it was a great experience. Tremendous attnetion to detail throughout and the area around the pool is lovely. Easy walking distance to town.

Stayed February 2012, traveled as a couple

My wife and I stayed in this modern accommodation for two nights as we travelled along the Garden Route. Everything associated with it – room, breakfast, pool and advice – was of high quality. Lotta, assisted by Ann, maintains an excellent guesthouse. We would certainly stay here again.

We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of a wonderful 3 week road trip in the Western and Eastern Cape. It is run by a Scandinavian couple (who we did not meet) and is beautifully designed and decorated in great taste. Furniture and furnishings are excellent, as is the breakfast (though it starts very late at 8.45am). It is spotlessly clean. However there are flaws which no amount of style can compensate for. The primary one is a lack of space both in the size of the room and particularly storage. There is no air conditioning (though there is a fan) and as all rooms have one wall of glass facing the public areas, curtains have to be drawn most of the time. We enjoyed our stay but the lack of space would mean we wouldn't be happy for more than a couple of nights. Location is very good, a couple of minutes walk to the cliff path for whale watching in season and 10 minutes to town along safe streets. The free wifi is very good and fast. A stylish choice but not perfect.

Room Tip: Some rooms face the pool and some the side garden - take your choice.

This is a perfect place to chill and relax. It's a guesthouse as opposed to B&B so the service is friendly but efficient and minimal. The rooms are beautifully and simply decorated with everything you need but th walls could definitely be thicker- you hear almost everything through the walls!! The breakfast is fresh and very good! The pool area is very nice and an added bonus is the honesty bar. Location is walking distance from town but I didn't feel that comfortable walking back to the guesthouse Once it was dark although we were told it was fine.

Just completed my second visit to Beluga House. Hopefully there will be many more visits in the future. Lotta and her staff are very welcoming and the service is second to none. The rooms are well appointed and anything extra you need is available at reception (hair dryers supplied on request). The rooms can get a little warm at night though high quality, quiet fans are provided.
The location is excellent both as a base for exploring the wider area or for a relaxing break staying in the local area.
The breakfast is delicious served outside each day by the pool.
A great, modern and relaxed property with lots of personal touches.

We have just returned from our third visit to Beluga House. This is the 21st consecutive year we have holidayed in the Western Cape. We have a large experience of guest accommodation and Beluga House is of the highest possible standard. The rooms are spotless, the staff are charming, helpful, friendly and professional. Lotta is very considered as to the comfort and convenience of her guests. The breakfast is lovely and so is the pool and the outside area. We will definitely be back to stay again and I couldn't recommend Beluga House highly enough.

Room Tip: The side rooms are a bit bigger

However short it was, our two night stay at Beluga House was absolutely wonderful. We experienced the best breakfast ever. Everything was carefully thought ! For a first trip to Hermanus, we definitely fell in love with this guesthouse and will come again. A must !
