We had stayed with the older Blackheath Lodge property of the same group in Cape Town and liked it. This property has a very different atmosphere as it is brand new with a nice layout that allows the sea air and light into the property. Its comfortable and well run and the staff are very helpful (just like Blackheath Lodge). It has the added bonus of being a safe and 10minute walk from restaurants, and for day time a lovely seaside walk from which you can see whales, seals and rock hyrax. Note the endemic plants in the garden,

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms have poor sea view. But have gardens.

Beautiful boutique hotel located in Hermanus. We were two couples nearing the end of our visit to South Africa who were only able to spend one night at One Marine Drive - wish we had known how fabulous it is, I would have changed our itinerary! We were greeted upon arrival by Nicole who couldn't do enough for us during our short stay. Great location - the hotel is within walking distance from the town. It is just across the street from the cliff pathway from which you can spot the cavorting Right Whales who are plentiful during the months of September-December. My husband and I stayed in "Caroline" - a corner, sea-facing room which was absolutely delightful. Comfy bed, beautiful view and personable and helpful staff. Every detail has been meticulously planned out - from a chef's breakfast (included), to the decor with local artwork, to the fireplace in the sitting area, to the planning of a private dinner in the evening. We spent quite a bit of time on the balcony and were fortunate to see the whales very close to shore. Walking the cliff path to the town provided a great photographic opportunity. A lovely way to spend our last night - would love to visit again!

Room Tip: The "Caroline" room, a corner, sea-facing room, is large, quiet and has a great view of the bay.

Terrific accommodation in Hermanus. Staff who can't do enough for you, wonderful decor & facilities, delicious breakfasts, every little detail perfect. Great location just steps away from dramatic cliff top pathways, whale watching spots and great restaurants. Would love to come back for more....

I had read several reviews about this place before booking almost a year in advance. We were not disappointed at all. From the wonderful and helpful staff to the beautiful decoration and views from our room, this place exceeded all our expectations. We were only able to spend one night there and unfortunately saw no whales from land, only on our boat trip, but we would still go back as Hermanus is a lovely town and this place was just great. Many thanks for a lovely stay on the last night of our trip to your beautiful country!
