We spent 3 nights at the Marine Hotel in Hermanus - the hotel is lovely and very fitting for the area - but what made it special was the wonderful views from our suite - to wake up and be able to see whales breaching only a short distance away is amazing! Even our bathroom had a view! The staff was great and very responsive to a situation that I was a little taken back by - there was the need for construction done on the roof directly over our room and although I understand that the repairs needed to occur while the weather cooperated - a little notice to the guests affected would have been nice. After a call to the front desk - it was strange but they were not at first aware - they immediately responded by offer to move us to a larger suite. We declined the offer since our room was on the second floor and offered a better view. We figured as long as it was not going to last all day or carry over to any other day we could deal with and enjoy the Sun Room in the lobby. All in all - definitely where I would recommend staying in Hermanus.
