We stayed for thee nights in a very modern, clean and well equipped apartment in Harbour House Square. We had a massive balcony overlooking a small pool and Walker Bay. It was just a short walk across the road to the main hotel for a nice breakfast with the usual cold buffet plus hot breakfasts made to order. We had underground parking and could walk to all the local shops and restaurants. We loved Hermanus though we didn't see many whales, just glimpses of the backs or tails!

We chose this hotel because of its central location right on seafront and adjacent to restaurants and cafes. Unfortunately our room was on ground floor with windows directly looking on to pavement and road, which were right outside, so we had to keep curtains closed at all times. Poorly furnished room with non functioning air conditioning. Breakfast was good but fairly limited choices.
Although the pool is advertised as an 'infinity pool', it is on the ground level directly adjacent to open road and pavement which lie between the pool and the sea!

Stayed two nights in a lovely room with sea views overlooking Walker Bay. Exceptionally clean and well maintained, with excellent breakfast. Ideally situated in the heart of Hermanus nightlife at Gearing's Point, close to Main Street, with all local attractions to hand.

The small hotel is situated in the heart of Hermanus with a view over the bay. It is near the shops and restaurants.

Our room was clean but not great from our perspective. There is no wardrobe but what look like oversized hanging rails with a couple of hangers each.

We did not,like the bathroom and toilet arrangements as the toilet was a glass (partially obscure) cubicle which in a bedroom/bathroom is not great. It looks like considerable effort has been made to modernise the facilities and it looks nice but not good to use from my view. The shower offered no modesty at all and if you walked into the bedroom when the front door was open you would be on full view to the corridor!!

The staff are really helpful and although there is no evening restaurant which is a missed opportunity, they do a nice lunch that you can sit outside and eat whilst whale, dolphin and seal watching.

On a personal note I really disliked the plastic chairs in the breakfast/lunch eating area. It is a real turn off for me.

My husband and I stayed at Harbour House Square and we were very impressed with the lodge. The room was well equipped clean and very luxurious. I will recommend it to anyone looking for quality when staying in Hermanus.

Room Tip: Ask to book at the main hotel and not the square as the rooms at the square only has partial sea views.
