First night stopover out of Cape Town on motorbike tour. Room was very well appointed, modern and clean. Small kitchen facility included as well would be good if staying for a few nights.

Town is a major whale watching location so would be ideal place later in the year when migration is taking place. Read less

Stayed in one of the one bedroom apartments with large balcony with view of Walker Bay and Village Square. Well equipped and furnished facility with friendly and helpful staff. Serves one of the best breakfasts we’ve had in a long time. Can recommend staying here.

We were looking forward to our visit to Hermanus. Harbour House was in a great location for restaurants, walking, etc. Our room was nice but in a poor location in the lower level of the hotel with no real ocean views. We complained to the hotel reception with no luck. We liked the breakfast very much.
