Dear Guest

Thank you for your fine comments and we hope you had a lovely stay at Misty Waves.

There should be ample secure parking and the car watch usually indicate specific parking areas to the guests especially at night time when the hotel fill up completely..
Will look into it.

We traveled to Hermanus to visit and support a family member who faces many immediate potential life threatening challenges. We needed a pleasant “home from home” atmosphere and welcoming environment to underpin ourselves during this time. We selected Misty Waves from its web page data relative to its equals and peers. What a pleasant surprise!! This is definitely not a "plastic, mechanically well rehearsed" service like most traditional 4 and 5 star chain hotels. From the first engagement with reception to the provision of local information, porter service, room service, restaurant, business lounge, hotel amenities and surroundings to the final farewell was nothing short of superb, friendly, courteous and professional. What a jewel!! It is so easy to recommend Misty Waves to any traveler, holiday family or business person with the utmost confidence.

Room Tip: Book direct and experience true courtesy and professionalism.

Misty Waves feels… I guess luxurious, but a bit aged, when you walk in to the main building. We first got a room in the small "cottage" in the garden, but we did not even have time to unpack until we got an upgrade to a room in the main building. Both rooms were great, but the latter had a big nice bathtub and was the size of an average Stockholm apartment. So we were very satisfied :) Misty Waves is located right at the oceanside, and you actually see the whales from the hotel! As we were having breakfast there was a mom and baby whale playing around just in front of us. The breakfast is standard I would say, and the dining room is a bit dated, with carpeted floors and dark wood interior. The staff was friendly and helpful, we had a few laughs. Overall a nice stay, nothing extraordinary, but I think it was quite cheap even though we stayed there in the middle of whale season.

We were only able to spend 1 night here, on entering our room we wished we could stay longer. Our room was huge and tastefully decorated with a jacuzzi in bathroom. We were able to walk into town. The staff were very friendly and the buffet breakfast was a bonus. Dining room overlooks the sea. On booking the lady said if there was an upgraded room available upon checking in, we could have it, but unfortunately the hotel was full. But our room was really great.

We spent 2 nights in this hotel and we must say that it was fantastic, wonderful room, very friendly staff, and very good breakfast buffet. Once we will be back in South Africa we will definitely stay again in this lovely hotel.

From the moment we arrived, the service from the staff was exceptional. We were upgraded upon arrival to a suite with a great viewing area. They had recently opened a restaurtant in the Hotel, and the food was so good we ate there two nights in a row...awesome prawns.
Breakfast is in cluded and has a lot of great options including eggs cooked to order.
Location is just a few minutes from town, so it was very quiet.
We were there for the Whale Festival and for the nearby cage diving.
Would definitely stay there if in the area again.

Room Tip: Cattle Baron has some great steaks.
