We spent one night at On the Cliff and loved it. The rooms are comfortable and well appointed. However, what really sets the hotel apart is the location. From your room you can watch whales cavorting in the sea kelp just feet from the cliff's edge. The service was excellent. We visited Hermanus doing research for the Tango in Tahiti travel book. Our focus is affordable, romantic travel for couples and we were looking for a less expensive alternative to the exclusive Birkenhead House. On the Cliff feels like a small boutique hotel with a bit of a Tuscan feel. The rooms and the pool area are quite lovely. Some of the common areas are less well decorated but overall the standard is quite high. Plan on doing lots of walking along the cliff paths in front of the hotel.
