“Nice Accommodation”
Reviewed March 11, 2011

I think I'm the first person to write a review since the new owners took over in June 2010. Chris and his wife are very friendly (Chris loves a joke) and seem to be settling in nicely. The rooms are spacious, not much storage space, but then people usually only stay for a couple of nights. They are clean and have all that is necessary for a comfortable stay. The pool though small is nice, set in a small inner courtyard. Breakfast was hearty. Within walking distance of town and the cliff top walk. Would we return - Yes

The rooms here have a lovely beach feel about them, and the hosts are very welcoming. Parking is readily available and its only a short walk to town if you want to leave the car behind. Breakfast is very filling with a lot of variety, including cooked choices. Everything is clean including the pool.

Easy to find (off main road from Cape Town) and good walking distance from centre of Hermanus. The rooms are on the basic side (no air con or safe) but it was nice to have a kettle in the room. The service was very personal & the fruit salad at breakfast was amazing. The pool is very small, but that's not really what you would stay here for. All in all, this was a great value place to stay & nice base to experience Hermanus.

We stayed at the Baleia guest house on November 3rd last year for two nights. We were so impressed that we stopped again on November 17 for one night on the way from Knysna to Franshoek. The rooms are large and are equipped with high quality furnishings with huge en-suite bathrooms which are kept spotlessly clean. Frank, the owner makes the best breakfast that you can eat and provides excellent service to all guests. If you ever find yourself in Hermanus, this Guest House comes very highly recommended for quality, service and location.
