A fabulous boutique style hotel in a wonderful location. Very friendly staff, large comfortable rooms, ours had a sea view, toaster, kettle and fridge. Plentiful breakfast. Stunning views from the pool area. The only negative aspects were the lack of a bar area and no evening meals although ready to suggest where to eat locally.

Loved this hotel. Nice, helpful staff. Best breakfast in Hermanus. Even locals go there for breakfast. Lovely infinity pool. Great view from our balcony. By the seafront and in main part of town. Town has interesting shops. Great cliff side walk by hotel

Ideally placed for exploring Hermanus, it is just across the road to the Cliff walk and there is a wide selection of shops and restaurants nearby. The staff are wonderful and couldn't do enough to help. Stayed in a large comfortable suite in a separate building only a couple of minutes walk to the excellent breakfast. Definitelty recommended.

We recently stayed here for a couple of nights. The check in was a bit fraught through no fault of the staff as it was the middle of a power cut, so we were escorted to the car park,( Harbour house is in 3 blocks) by a member of staff and then climbed 4 flights of stairs with our luggage, again helped by another member of staff.

We recently stayed here for a couple of nights. The check in was a bit fraught through no fault of the staff as it was the middle of a power cut, so we were escorted to the car park,( Harbour house is in 3 blocks) by a member of staff and then climbed 4 flights of stairs with our luggage, again helped by another member of staff. Our apartment had a lovely bright lounge and well equipped kitchen with everything helpfully labelled. The bedroom was quite small but adequate and the strange practice of the bath in the bedroom separated by a blind. There was also a walk in shower and a separate toilet, all of which were great quality with lovely toiletries. The very special part of our apartment was the bifold doors on the balcony and the stunning view over Hermanus bay, the view took your breath away. The Harbour house is close to the all restaurants and shops around Hermanus and of course the sea front. Breakfast was included and taken in the main building. The service was ok, as front of house staff were helping out due to staff shortage. The food was pleasant and plentiful. I would definitely stay here again, the view alone was enough to bring me back. Read less

We enjoyed our stay at the Harbour House Hotel. Our room was clean, a good size, well appointed and comfortable. Hermanus was lovely, and we had a very central location, with great views over the bay. There's easy parking, with a fixed space per room. Breakfast was good, in a lovely airy room. We were rather disconcerted when it looked like there was no partition or wall or anything between the bathroom and the bedroom, which would have made for interesting showers! But then we noticed a blind that we could pull down to protect our modesty :-). Perhaps that could be made clearer on check in, or in the documentation in the room. But overall, we'd definitely recommend the Harbour House Hotel for a comfortable stay in Hermanus. Read less
