If you want to be close to the whales and the centre of Hermanus at a very reasonable price then you can't go wrong. It is literally across the road from one of the best whale watching spots in town and a 2 minute walk to the shops/ restaurants. For the price and convenience I would definitely recommend. This is not luxury accommodation though, it is pretty basic. The apartments are around a courtyard, so no sea views, the interiors are clean and well maintained, but dated and definitely not stylish and whilst there is everything you need to cook, it's not what I would call well equipped. For a night or two go for it - for a luxury break, look elsewhere.
