We only stayed for one night, so everything was quite adequate for our needs. Whilst the location has beautiful views over the bay, you need to be aware that you are literally right on the main road, so it does get noisy. The pool area is fairly restricted and there are not too many sun loungers, so if you are...

We stayed at this hotel for one night and we were quite literally stunned when we opened our hotel room door. It is by far the most romantic and most beautiful room we have ever stayed at. The room was very spacious with all the facilities you ever need for a stay. The bathroom and bath products offered were superior....

Stayed for 1 night at the 1 bedroom apartment which is above the shops & restaurants in a separate building on the opposite side of the square. The apartment itself is very spacious & well equiped. The staff are extremely helpful & friendly. The drawbacks: the carpark is by the main hotel so the luggage had to be carried over....

As other reviewers have noted the hotel on the face of it has everything going for it until you encounter the reception staff where every request is met with an immediate no and only when pushed will they check if it's possible. The bed was ridiculous short and I'm of average height so my feet hung off the edge. The...

We were in Harbour Square for 3 nights. Sublime experience in a new suite 03. Large Verandah outside to complement it. All extremely clean and well looked after by Housekeeping. Hermanus is wonderful and the Harbour House has such a fantastic atmosphere. Could not fault the food, waiting or the Reception services. I have eaten Eggs Benedict all over the...

Stayed here for 3 nights last year so as part of our road trip we decided to stay for one night and weren't disappointed. The rooms are spacious and airy with white,crisp linen and a nice balcony. Sizeable bathroom and a large seating area too. Breakfast is always freshly made and ample choice. Lovely pool area with waiter service. Overall...

I really wanted to like this property. The pros: The location- prime position on the waterfront; The standard of the suites (beautifully appointed to a high standard) The professional welcome by Anousha on front desk However The cons: If you are located in the Village Square, you have to traipse back and forth across the road for breakfast, checkout etc...

4 family members were really looking forward to a lovely stay in Hermanus, Southern Cape. What a disappointment awaited us. The rooms we booked were supposed to have sea views. Well our room had a view of the sea through a very dirty window over a thatched roof & the rest of the family could see the sea from their...

This hotel is in a lovely spot but it could be so much better than it is. Most rooms are nice with great views. Unfortunately the air con hadn't been working for a week which they failed to tell us at any time until we complained. For some reason they wanted full payment before we'd completed our stay which we...

My parents and I were blown away by the Square Suites. Pure, utter indulgence. Beautifully decorated, clean and stunning views. The staff who work in this building are charming and polite. The breakfasts are a combination of an indulgent buffet with enough selection to satisfy the fussiest to the decadent. The hot selection again is overflowing. I must say that...

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
