The Marine is a classic hotel, perched on top of the cliffs just a two-minute walk from the centre of Hermanus. In recent years the hotel has joined the luxury-hotel marketing group, Relais & Châteaux - and is marketed very much as a luxurious, high-end property.
Our view of The Marine
Considering The Marine is a five-star hotel we thought it was decidedly unpretentious. It is very elegant and clearly a lot of time and effort has gone into the décor. However, we felt that despite (or perhaps because of?) the rooms having individually chosen fabrics, these weren’t quite to the same standard as the public rooms.
