I recently had the pleasure of staying The Marine Hermanus Hotel during, from the moment I walked in, I was impressed by the warm and welcoming atmosphere. The rooms were spacious, impeccably clean, and tastefully decorated. The bed was incredibly comfortable, ensuring a good night’s sleep after a day of exploring the city.

From the view of the ocean in our room, to the outstanding food and the impeccable service, a couple of days break at The Marine felt like a two-week retreat. We returned home feeling rejuvenated, relaxed and very happy. Michel and his excellent team made us feel like royalty and we were extremely well looked after. All our needs were met with a smile and with respect. In particular Chef Leslie, Duty Manager Bianca - and Joycelynn and Samantha at the Spa simply made our stay that extra special. The Winter Warmer Menu is exellent and can be enjoyed as a Day Visitor too - well worth it! We shall definitely return to this beautiful hotel! Read less

Summary: Stunning! One of the Top 2% of hotels we have stayed in. Received quintessential, top-notch and continuous customer service from the entire staff from pre-arrival to check-in to check-out. The little “extras” and the “attention to details” all add up to an unforgettable stay: -1) Responsiveness & assistance of the staff during our planning/pre-arrival stage was second-to-none. -2) Arrangements for our transfer from Cape Town Airport to the Marine, for our day tour of the area, and the subsequent ride to Cape Town were flawless. -3) Coordination for spa treatment appointments and dinner reservations (both inside and outside the hotel) catered to our schedules. -4) Personally escorted tour of the hotel grounds and description of the amenities as we were guided to our spacious room with the “million dollar” view of Walker Bay. Our only regret was not being able to stay longer… The general manager runs a well-coordinated, well-versed staff; it is one to emulate and venerate. The Marine hotel, the grand dame of Hermanus, is definitely the place to stay on our future visits to Hermanus. Read less
