“Very cozy and central”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2010

We spent one night at Auberge Burgundy on the way along garden route. It was a very good choice. This small hotel is very good located, in the centre of Hermanus. Just steps away from cliffs (whale whatching) and restaurants/bars.

Rooms are very cozy, generous and have all comfort you need. Everything very clean. Excellent restaurant on the opposite side of the street (part of the hotel)!

This was our second time in hermanus and wanted to be walking distance to the town this time around as some guesthouses can be up to 30 mins walk to town. The Auberge is actually in the one of the best locations in town right on the seafront and the front rooms have unobstructed views of the sea which in November means unobstructed views of the whales from your room or balcony. While the rooms at the back of the hotel may not have the same view, you are less than 1min to the sea wall and the whalewatching.
The accomodation in the Auberge is to a very good standard for a guest house. As there was five of us, we booked the penthouse (3 rooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen and sitting room) which was slightly better value and a lot more practical than three rooms. Two bedrooms and the living room look out to the sea. However, the master bedroom which has the best views and the ensuite may result in infighting among your group but its all good. The living room comes with an open wood fire which is great to sit around regardless if it is a balmy night outside.
There is no lift to bring us to the third floor in the evening but the free brandy/sherry at reception helped us get up there in the end.
There is a pool in the Auberge too and a few wings to the building which we didn't see but other than the sea view I'd say all is a good there too.
Breakfast is across the road in a separate restaurant but there is upside there as the restaurant is one of the best in Hermanus and the breakfast lives up to that reputation also.

we have rtepeatedly returned to the auberge if only to see Salome, Esme & Christine once more. we are treated as old friends but we wouldnt be paying a fairly hefty charge if the place wasn`t so brilliant.. we get, when possible room 15 and we love it..the pool is 2 metres from our door and the terrace has the most gorgeous views over Walker bay.
our breakfast is fine but the restauant (not associated with the auberge ) has deteriorated in the past 2-3 years and one can do better in Hermanus.
it is an amzing little town and if I had to spend the rest of my life anywhere other than N.London it would be hermanus. thank you ladies for another super visit

We found this hotel so delightful! perfect location in the center of Hermanus right near the ocean and close to all the great restaurants and shops. The breakfast was served in the lovely restaurant across the street. Wished we had stayed longer .

We spent three nights at this romantic hideaway in late December and it was great. We arrived late in the evening on Christmas Eve and the staff had made us a restaurant reservation in case we had forgotten as most places were closed and the rest were at capacity. The reservation served us well. The room was large and had a nice balconey overlooking a beautiful courtyard. The two ladies at the front desk helped us find our way around town and I would recommend the town and Inn highly.

This is a lovely hotel right on the harbour at Hermanus. We walked out of the front door, over the road and could see the whales in the bay. The hotel is comfortable - we had one of the rooms in the main building which was large. Breakfast is over the road in the restaurant and is very good with lots of choice. There are lots of restaurants in Hermanus and it is a great place to stop, especially during the whale season.

Our staying in Hermanus couldn't be as great without the Auberge Burgundy.
My husband and I loved the small town as well the Auberge Burgundy.
We stayed in the charming detached building with a few spacious rooms all around the nice pool. Unfortunately we couldn't enjoy it because it was too cold and rainy.
The hotel is close to everything: shops, restaurants and 2 minutes walk to the waterfront where you can watch to the whales.
The owner is very friendly. As we arrived he offered us a glass of sherry in front of the fireplace. I couldn't expect a warmer welcome!
