Lovely hotel and very friendly staff. Our room was gorgeous and the location was just perfect. The only thing was that on checking out, we were asked to pay 40 Rand as a tourism fee for every night we stayed there. I know this isn’t a lot but we had everything paid in advance and we weren’t expecting it.

No road or dike interference between hotel and the ocean, direct access to the cliff path, friendly and efficient staff, quick service in the restaurant, clean room, hot swimming pool, good quality mattress make a stay at the Marine a perfect holiday whatever the weather.

Stayed here for 3 nights. The hotel is lovely and very well maintained, breakfast is really very good with a terrific variety. However, we stayed here after staying in 2 much smaller hotels and found it lacked a little of the personal touch. Staff were just a bit distant and it lacked a certain warmth. That having been said, it is in a lovely area and is perfect for whale watching. On our last morning we were treated to a goodbye from a mummy and her baby in the ocean just outside our room.

The Marine Hotel is in a great location in Hermanus. Within minutes of arriving we had spotted a number of whales just off the coast.

Our room was spacious and clean, breakfast was tasty with a good selection and the staff were helpful and friendly.

We had a lovely meal in the restaurant one night and the bar is a great place to relax. The drinks are reasonably priced and it looks out to the ocean.

We were on our honeymoon and on our first night we returned to the room to find a bottle of sparkling wine and flowers on the bed which was a lovely touch.

The turndown service was nice. Each night we would return to the room to find a bottle of water each, a chocolate on the pillow and a weather update for the following day.

We had a little mix up with the parking which the staff on reception kindly sorted out for us promptly.

The Marine is in a great location, right in the heart of Hermanus. We really loved staying here. It has a great bar with really tasty bar snacks and a good restaurant (if not a little hot). The breakfast is really good and oddly served in a restaurant not seemingly used otherwise. Our room was excellent with a superb sea view and the hotel is ideally situated for the coastal path. One real highlight is the spa - the massage is really excellent and really good value,
