This was our second trip to Hermanus but the first time at the Burgundy, We were with two friends and took over the penthouse (three bedrooms two bathrooms and sitting room) which was perfect. The staff were all wonderful, attentive and helpful. They booked shark diving trips for us and could not have been more helpful.
Breakfast is taken across the road at the burgundy restaurant sitting out overlooking the bay was just fabulous, This restaurant is also super in the evenings.
I wouls reccomend this place to anyone who is looking to stay in central Hermanus

Room Tip: For 4 or more peaople go for the penthouse.

We had a lovely couple of nights here. Good central location - brilliant for popping out to see the whales.

Nice tasty breakfast served across the road at The Burgundy (also good for evening meal - we had to book as it got quite busy).

We had a 'basic' room but it was lovely, full of character and very tastefully furnished and decorated. The bed was a bit short in length but so so wide and super comfy.

Would be hard to find fault.

We stayed in the Auberge in Ocober in the Left Suite. It was a really beautiful room and one of my favourites of our South African trip. We were given chocolates and a bottle of bubbly as it was my husband's bithday which was a lovely touch.

The staff were very nice and we had helpful tips on eating and of course whale watching.

The breakfsat at the Burgundy was excellent and would also recommend it for dinner.

Great location right in the centre of town. All in all, wonderful, wish I-was back there.

Room Tip: Right or left suites both lovely with sea views

We booked in for a one-night stay and were immediately pleased with the light and spacious room, from where we could see whales in the sea from our window! The staff are very welcoming and helpful. The building itself is lovely, in the style of a French château and the sitting room area with log fire and complementary port and sherry is a lovely touch. Breakfast is at the nearby restaurant, which is 2 minutes away. Food and service here is also excellent.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front of the house have lovely views. The smaller ones are often cheaper, but are hard...

The Auberge Burgundy is right in the center of Hermanus town, around the corner from Gearings Point for whale watching and right accross the town square, market and restaurants.
Rooms are comfortable, though can do with an update ... a bit tired. Spacious thought, and that goes for the bathroom as well. Each room has a fully stocked mini-bar, televsion, airconditioner, coffee facilities. Close enough to the ocean to smell the sea and hear the waves.
The hotel's location makes it ideal for a walk through town.
There is no public transport in Hermanus though and the hotel does not proved transport to reach the beaches of Onrus, Grotto and Voelklip. If you do not have your own transport, your trip will be limited to the center of town.
