Fantastic location!
What a fantastic location! Close to the cliff pathwalk and the Hermanus centre, this superb hotel offers a comfortable and memorable stay. Breakfast offers everything you expect including sea view, if they open the terrace during nice weather. The pool is simply stunning. I was however located in another building across the street which I was not aware of during booking. Not a big deal, but the main house seems to be even nicer.

Hotel was excellent. Perfect location and great rooms. Only miss was the wifi. They need to make it simpler for Apple devices...they have a 'specific procedure' for Apple devices to get on the wifi and it does NOT work easily. Once you are on, you are set. So many GREAT things about this property. Definitely stay there...and hopefully they will get a tech person to help them out.
