“Quarters Hermanus”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

Excellent location to the sea, shops and restaurants. We had stayed at The Quarters in Florida Road, Durban which is why we decided to stay at Quarters Hermanus. Although totally different in furnishing, the staff were just as obliging and welcoming. Our room was well-appointed, breakfast at Oscars excellent. Would definitely stay there again.

Excellent location in the middle of town, easy walking distance to restaurants shops, and best of all can see the see ( and whales in the right season!) from balcony. Breakfast over the road is lovely, but beware the bread basket which is lovely but huge ( giant scone and muffin as well as croissants!) so only for those with large appetites. Helpful front desk staff who booked our whale watching trip and provided good restaurant recommendations. Room lovely ( a suite) , decor attractive and comfortable and there are shops nearby should you wish to self cater. Strange noise outside the first night but after that it was fine, pool out of action but too cold for swimming anyway. Would recommend to anyone - also has free parking underneath.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony overlooking the sea

Quarters Hermanus has a perfect position right on the cliff front and in the heart of town. We could watch the whales in the harbour from our room (room 12) , which was a spacious self catering suite with the kids sleeping in the living room. Kitchen was well stocked and there is a woolworths nearby so we self catered one night but there are plenty of restaurants right on the doorstep as well. Secure parking is available under the hotel. Decor lovely and breakfast across the road at Oskars deli was very nice. The staff were all terrific, going out of their way to help us with our varying requirements, particularly Elizba and Olivia. All in all: delightful and highly recommended.

We spent 2 nights at Quarters last week. Room 14 has a fantastic view! The staff are very friendly and professional. The only niggle was our first night when it was very windy - there was a constant tapping sound on the roof which made sleep difficult. Fortunately the second night there was no wind... The manager did say that they would check on this
For the rest - fabulous rooms, impeccably clean!!! and very comfortable. The parking is so convenient too - in an underground garage. Walking distance to everything - you don't need your car at all.

Room Tip: Suite 14 - great view of the harbour - and the bay from your bed

We recently stayed at Quarters, Hermanus in the last week of Aug'12. Very neat and clean property with well appointed rooms. Though rooms were a bit small for a family of 4, they more than made it up with the welcome - children bedding with welcome chocolates were all ready at check-in! Location is excellent just meters away from the rocks from where you can watch the whales. Other big pluses are the breakfast at OSKARs and the excellent service - we left back a pair of shoes, which their staff led by the very professional Bronwyn couriered back to us all the way in Dubai!

Really Nice rooms with awesome views, We had a great top floor room with a balconcy overlooking the bay. Great breakfast, they will bring it to your room for a very small fee so you can eat on the balcony. The staff goes way above and beyond, very pleasant. Could not have been happier

Room Tip: High floors, the view is worth paying a bit more

For a hotel this price and in this area, it's missing a lot of basics. That said, if you need to stay in Hermanus and this is the best option you can find, I wouldn't warn people away from it.

Some complaints:
- They charge for the wifi and have the most convoluted system known to man. When you login, you are directed to a payment portal that doesn't actually work (although you only discover this after wasting 30 minutes trying). Instead, you need to buy access by the megabyte from the front desk. It isn't cheap, it's incredibly slow, and if you run out of megabytes in the middle of the night you have to wait until morning to find someone at the front desk.
- There are no free electrical outlets... None! Including none anywhere in or near the bathroom, so shavers and hair dryers are out. Once you do unplug something in the room to get a free outlet, there are no european plus in the room (I'm from the US and our plug adapters don't fit the South African plugs--my guess is this is also true for most Aussies, Europeans, etc. but most medium to large hotels in SA have a power-strip with Euro plugs. Here, you have to go downstairs to reception (although they were happy to loan me one).

The bed was also uncomfortable and the white sheets were yellowed at the bottom (not a small stain -- about half the sheet). I own white sheets and it looks like it from normal wear, so I don't think it was dirty but definitely time to buy new sheets!

That said the views of the Bay were great, and the location is also very good.
