Stayed at apartments . Great space fantastic view . Lovely braai on balcony with magnificent sunset. Was just a one night stop over . Couldn't fault it besides low water pressure in bathroom . But weather was awesome so it didn't matter. Would have enjoyed a longer stay

What an awesome position for a hotel to be in , food for breakfast and service was excellent. The room had mold in the bath room , no bottled water or glasses, to run back and forward for ice and glasses daily during our stay. Although the rooms need a revamp they felt clean. A bar fridge would be a...

We enjoyed our stay a lot - Hermanus is beautiful. The only thing re the rooms I maybe could mention is the size of the bath was quite small and the grouting around the bath needs some attention. There is also a small hole in the floor behind the toilet (room 315). It is uncomfortable to shower in the small...

The owners are using the fabulous location to take advantage of guests with rooms and the rest of the hotel looking like they were last refurbished about 30 years ago. Location 5 star, rooms and the rest of the hotel 1 star.

The room was crawling with Ants. Even the bed had trails of busy ants. When the front desk was advised really nothing happened. After a while the staff examined the room but stated that they could do nothing since they were not able to find out where the creatures came from. A pitty such a nice hotel is run by...

Dear Sir/Madam. Thank you for your valued feedback. Your complaint has been taken to heart. The hotel has scheduled preventative ant control measures in place so when something like this happens it is out of the ordinary. We act on it as soon as the room is vacant for the necessary treatment. We wholeheartedly agree that this is not acceptable...

Your rate per day increased from June 2016 - R 1350 to R 1900 - April 2017 - sharp increase with no real difference to the accommodation. Smell in the apartment - I suggest you air the apartment before guests check in - this was noticeable when I stayed there in June 2016 as well as April 2017. I like...

Reviewed 11 April 2017 via mobile

A very old, renovated hotel with lots of charm. We stayed in a seaview room - wow! Loved the proximity to the sea. But, for the price, there were a few things not quite on par. The overall feeling was slightly tacky rather than luxurious. But, it was clean and comfortable, and included a good breakfast.

This is such a stunning location but rooms need serious attention , decor as well. The food was nice but could have been presented in a much better way. Overall this Hotel could be amazing it just needs some love and attention.
