The Marine, Hermanus

A lovely positioned hotel right on the cliff top. Our superior room was on the ground floor with access to a private patio overlooking the ocean in two directions.

Unfortunate the weather was cool so we only sat there one sunny morning for about one hour. We did see whales - they have had a bad season - so we were happy. The town of Hermanus seems to close for the off season and the restaurants were not up to the standard at Franschoek being mainly grill type with very similar menus. I think if you had a car or were prepared to walk away from the cliff side road you might do better.

When we left we could not pay by card as they were having problems with their wifi - it had been fine everywhere else. So we had to pay in cash as our driver was waiting. However when I checked the bill when we arrived at Plettenberg there was a 200R additional charge. I queried this as the hotels are in the same group and they said it was for an additional key which we never had. They agreed with us as we had not asked for one at Plettenberg. It should be being refunded. Don't have my credit card statement yet but this left a slight concern. Not a lots of money but the principle is clear.

Also whilst they very pleasant the receptionists were the least efficient and knowledgeable. We had come to expect really high standards of customer service from SA staff.

What a lovely place to finish our honeymoon

A lovely hotel and a beautiful room with amazing sea views. The hotel manager took us on a tour of the hotel and made us feel very welcome.

The hotel was very well positioned and we felt very spoilt. The fish restaurant and breakfast was amazing, we just wish we had stayed for two nights rather than one.

I also had a pedicure that was lovely and my nails three weeks later still look great.

Ideal hotel for whale watching

We were given a lovely room overlooking the bay.

Everything was of the standard expected of such a hotel.

We ate in both restaurants and had very good food.

Very luxurious and peaceful

Staff were very friendly and attentive.

The bottle of bubbly in our room was a very welcome gesture. Food and service were of the highest standard.

This hotel is beautifully located overlooking Walker Bay, where Southern Right Whales can be seen for much of the year.
