On checking in we were shown to a room overlooking the side of an apartment block – not what we had booked, however after a few minutes we were offered two other rooms that did meet our booking. We were delighted with Room 230 – superb views towards the mountains and across Walkers Bay. The hotel has recently been refurbished...

I reserved a table at Origins on the advice of a friend who lives and operates a business in Hermanus and was so glad that we chose to dine there. The whole atmosphere and ambience was just perfect. Staff are highly professional; although the restaurant was full everything ran like clockwork. The layout of the restaurant was excellent. The menu...

Beautiful setting on top of the hills in Hermanus overlooking the sea, a charming town in which to spend time and relax with great vineyards nearby. Rooms are spacious and well-appointed, majority are sea facing. The little touches were great, amenities were fabulous and staff are amazing.

We thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay at The Marine. Staff were very helpful and friendly, our sea front room was very comfortable, and the hotel bar/ lounge and restaurant were excellent. In addition to that, the treatments we had at the spa were excellent. A most enjoyable stay.

At very heart of Hermanus this spot is both convenient and private enough to get lost away from the action. Not all rooms have views but come with all modern amenities you expect at this end of the market.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Marine is one of the southern hemisphere's most spectacular seaside Relais & Chateaux properties. Perched on the cliffs, overlooking Hermanus's Walker Bay, The Marine boasts 40 individually decorated bedrooms and suites. This unforgettable property overlooks South Africa's most pristine whale sanctuary, and it is just a stone's throw from one of the greatest densities of the endangered Great White Shark, and selection of fynbos species in the Cape. The Marine offers guests the unique opportunity to experience the finest land-based whale watching in the world. From June to September guests are able to view these majestic creatures from the comfort of their beautiful sea-facing bedroom. The attention to detail is apparent in every aspect of this remarkable owner managed property - from the personal service to the exceptional cuisine which is overseen by The Collection by Liz McGrath's Grand Chef, Peter Tempelhoff, the perfect-for-sundowners Sun Lounge and the in-house Carchele Beauty Spa. Each piece of The Marine story adds another element to an unforgettable stay. ... more   less
