“Great Location, nice B&B”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

We stayed at this B&B for 1 night in February. Although we arrived very late in the evening, Barry was so nice to wait for us. The hotel is in a quiet area, close to the ocean. The room was big and very comfortable, decorated in a specific style. Breakfast was at a big table with more guests, a great opportunity to meet other travellers and exchange experiences. Right across the house we started our cliff walk towards the town centre...

This was our 2nd visit to Harbour Vue Guest House, it is an excellent choice, warm, friendly and gives an excellent service. Breakfast is great and nothing is too much trouble for the wonderful manager Barry.

An overall excellent choice for a stay in Hermanus

Room Tip: go for the sea view, its worth it

The Harbour Vue has beautiful large rooms. Ours had a sea view (over a quite road). Living room area outside bedrooms very cosy and well equipped. Breakfast was excellent. The cliff walk into town was pretty spectacular. A very nice stay

This is one of those guesthouses where you feel welcome from the moment you arrive. It's cosy and tastefully decorated (in a nice old fashioned way), most of the rooms are spacious and several of them have sea views, the breakfast at a communal table is lovely, and Barry manages everything with endless charm and friendliness. The location is a little out of town but it is a pleasant 30 mins walk along the cliffs which are just across the road so no problem (in return you are close to the New Harbour). Given the size of the rooms and the facilities the rates are reasonable. A nice find and we would certainly come back!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Neptune Room at the back of the house - no sea views, but very spacious (it's a...

My boyfriend and I found this delightful place online and decided to book. We only had one night so were hoping that the accommodation would be worth it, we were not disappointed! We requested a room with a sea view, and the B n B is literally 1 road away from the sea. We woke up to watch 3 whales from our bed, unbelievable. Barry, the manager, is wonderful and adds to the whole "home away from home" experience. We would highly recommend this place and we will be returning for sure.
