A very tranquil and relaxing atmosphere with the most beautiful views of our beautiful ocean. Superb seafood in a warm and friendly ambience. Excellent service and beautiful wines from the Hermanus Area and wider Western Cape Surroundings. A definite must to visit when in the area.

Forget the picture chosen to illustrate this hotel!!!! It is of the parking area?? The actual hotel has very nicely appointed rooms, I believe all with both seas and mountain views. The location is very central to a great "cliff walk" that goes for many kilometers in both directions along the ocean. Restaurants and bars abound, and no cars or...

restaurant was decent...not to die for, but the hotel was great. Wonderful balconies to overlook the ocean and easy to get around from the location. Price point was decent and the service was friendly with a hint of country charm.

My wife and i spent one night in a romantic room/suite and it was perfect. From the check in, to the drinks by the pool, peaceful night and delicious breakfast. We celebrated our anniversary and received a complementary bottle of wine. The room was neat and very comfortable.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated in the heart of the historical village, Harbour House Hotel has been modelled after its original architecture, a thatched roof seaside manor house built in 1920. Being perfectly located above the Old Harbour, the hotel's understated luxury is offset by the soothing surrounds of the ocean. The magnificent Lookout Terrace invites guests to relax around the infinity pool overlooking the ocean and savour a sundowner from the pool bar in the Pavilion. Harbour House Hotel consists of the restored Manor House with intimate Romantic Rooms, all with views, as well as the New Wing with 18 spacious suites, featuring sophisticated modern decor, a kitchenette and lounge leading out onto a private balcony. Guests are afforded luxury at every turn, from 100% fine white cotton bedding to marble and granite finishes. Sleek lines and carefully curated art pieces add to the modern aesthetic of each room. ... more   less
