Great Hotel - just confirm your room selection
We stayed here for two nights on our honeymoon and really loved Hermanus. The hotel's location can't be beat for all the activities and restaurants in town. The manager even treated us to cupcakes and a bottle of MCC to honor the occasion. Both of which we loved, and makes it hard to take the overall score down a little bit, but two key factors: 1. We had booked a room with a balcony via, however after we checked in and got to the room - there was no balcony. We were told that the room wasn't available due to the hotel being sold out. The Staff were very kind about it all, but in the end just not able to accommodate or offer up any other solution than "talk to". If it matters to you it might be worth double checking with the hotel after booking to confirm room selection. 2. The in room wifi didn't work and wasn't fixed by the hotel. If it matters to you it's something to consider, but otherwise you're most likely here for vacation and should go out and see Hermanus!

Nice weekend away
The hotel is lovely, rooms very pretty, pool is really nice and good views, local area also good. Reception not the friendliest but okay, breakfast nicely presented but not the best food.

Not worth the money
I was put in a building down the road behind a restaurant which was very noisy, you could hear the air conditioning from the restaurants and the garbage trucks, the curtains didn’t block out the light, one of the windows wouldn’t close, the pillows were awfull, the shower ran like a trickle of water. When I booked online I paid a high price thinking I was being put in the main building or the building next door, I was very disssapointed when I was put in a building down the road. They should inform guests where they will be staying. Overall I did not enjoying staying at the hotel. Also the room smelt of bubblegum, disgusting!
