We have stayed at Misty Waves before, so knew what to expect.  Reception area is quite grand, with wood everywhere and "antiques".  Not quite our style, but luckily the bedrooms are large, well furnished and modern, with good bathrooms, complete with walk in shower and bath.  We had a nice balcony, with sea view.

Service at hotel is consistently good and breakfasts in the top floor dining room were both scenic and satisfying.

Only real complaint is the pool area.  We thought this less than good two years ago, and were convinced that the hotel would have done something in the meantime with this unattractive feature.  Sadly that was not the case and the attempts to improve the grip on the slippy tiles with anti slip paint looked like algae growth!   Please refurbish this area Misty Waves- it lets the place down.

Of course, if you are a winter visitor, there to watch whales, then the pool is of little interest to you!

Room tip:  avoid 'heritage rooms'.  Not nearly as good as rest of hotel rooms.

I had a chance to getaway and only place that I would chose was Misty Waves Hotel in Hermanus. I stayed there for 6 glorious nights and the room was amazing with everything in it that a person needs and the breakfasts were scrumptious with a varied assortment of goodies. The staff, well all I can say that they are genuinely welcome and friendly and will do everything in their power to help and attend to your needs. I felt like a queen staying there and would go back as soon as I can. The pool and the gardens and fish ponds are very tranquil and gives you the feeling of relaxation. The decor of the hotel and rooms are amazing and beautifully decorated. I would recommend highly that everyone should go to Hermanus and to stay at Misty Waves Hotel as this hotel makes your stay complete.

Room Tip: All the rooms are amazing and it does not matter which room you take.

We had my mom's 80th birthday brunch at the beautiful Misty Waves Boutique and stayed there overnight as well. The hotel has lots of character and exquisite furniture, many choices at the breakfast buffet, stunning sea view and most important for us, was that the staff were so friendly and helpful - they made it a memorable experience for all who attended the function! Thank you Samantha and staff, your cheerful attitude was greatly appreciated. Fond regards and lots of blessings, hope to see you in the near future, Judi Muller & family, Gauteng, South Africa

Room Tip: If you're a "hottie" like me, choose a room with airconditioning.

Was delighted to stay in "Mon Plesir" fishermans cottage for four nights in early Feb. The hotel retains a charming feel of old style service sadly missing from so many places these days.

Made to feel genuinely welcome by all the staff who were always keen to help and knowledgeable in their advice about restaurants, activities etc.

The hotel is just a five minute walk from some great seafront eateries and bars and am happy to recommend Misty Waves to anyone wishing to stay somewhere with a bit of personality.........oh yes and they do a cracking breakfast.

We booked this hotel through Toursit Information on the day of our arrival in Hermanus. We got a "special rate" of 1800 rand , reduced from 2500 rand. The sea view room was beautifully furnished with tea/coffee making facilities etc. The spa bath was a nice touch in the very spacious bathroom but at these prices I would have expected towelling bath robes. It would have been nice to relax on the balcony afterwards without having to get dressed immediately.

Room service was very efficient. Drinks can be ordered to your room but unfortunately, there is no bar where fellow guests can get together. The in room information was out of date - it mentioned the honesty bar in the safari room but when we went to look for it we were told it was no longer in use.

The Indian restaurant served excellent food but for me, personally, was very limiting. I would not eat Indian food 2 nights running so did not use it again. The restaurant did advertise alternatives: chicken and chips or fish of the day, but when I asked for fish of the day they did not have any.

The hotel had a good library of local interest books but I do feel it would have been nice to have had a focal point for people to socialise if they so chose. It was as though everyone disappeared into their rooms after about 8pm so if you just want somewhere to sleep then I don't see the point of paying these prices. For a four star rating I think it lacked a few basic touches
