We stayed here for a 4-day weekend in early October and were very pleased with our choice. We were in the Fynbos room which has an ocean view. The host, Barry, makes an amazing cooked breakfast and is very knowledgeable about the area and we followed a number of his suggestions and were delighted. Visiting De Kelders is worth the 30 minute drive and the Rotary drive up the hill rewards you with an amazing view of Hermanus. We would definitely stay there again. Next time I would like to see more TV channels on offer since the guesthouse is rated 4 stars. There were two pay-TV channels. Sanmanie, the owner of Harbour Vue, also runs Oskars in town and the food there is well worth popping in for.

My wife & I have stayed at Harbour Vue a number of times....& the fact that we keep going back speaks volumes.....the rooms, the service & the tasty breakfasts are all first class. Barry has become more of a good friend & is ALWAYS prepared to go that extra mile to accomodate one!

Room Tip: ....definitely a room with a view of the sea....especially so when the whales are in the bay!!!

The hotel is beautiful and very comfortable,
but what makes it so special is the staff!
the owner called us to see if we will be hungry when we arrive (we arrived at nine in the evening), and stayed extra time just to serve us some hot soup when we finally got there!
it was very touching, and felt like coming home!
the next morning they made a special effort to make us an early breakfast (delicious!), so we can make it in time to the whale watch trip.
the staff was very very friendly, and when we left I told my husband I felt like visiting a family!

My wife and I found this little hideaway driving along the Garden Route and wished we could have stayed another night. Barry was certainly one of the highlights of our trip, providing us with great hospitality and a load of wonderful humor. The house is one of the nicest places we stayed at along the coast and traveling during the winter, the heated floors and well insulated rooms were a great addition to the fantastic view out our bedroom window for sunrise. Down the street is the whale watching launch point and a great restaurant overlooking the harbor (recommended by Barry!). Moreover, we arrived late in the evening for check-in and Barry kindly waited for us to arrive. We will certainly recommend this place to our friends and look forward to saying here in the future!

Room Tip: Choose the top floor for a great view!

I only managed to stay 1 night but this place deserves more than that. The accommodation is very comfortable and the position over looking the sea beautiful. The accommodation is very clean, the breakfast fabulous and plentiful and service 5 star. Great place to walk from to see the whales which are just starting to arrive for their breeding season.
