The Staff and the leisurely atmosphere and the location are all great
The Baleens is a beautifully kept historic building. The 2nd floor room was comfortable with a balcony and view of the beach. Very quiet and peaceful. Good WiFi. Excellent breakfast. Only there one night - would definitely go back and stay longer.
The bed was very uncomfortable I slept with a spring in my side. Could definitely use replacement. The guest house is situated in a residential neighborhood many kilometers from the down town area, requiring a car or taxi ride to get downtown. There was a restaurant on the beach close by for dinner.
The staff at Baleens are all friendly and helpful. The breakfast was delicious. And the view of the sea from our balcony was AWESOME!
Lovely quiet location out of the main town and a B&B with a lot of character. You can even whale-watch from your own balcony. Owner and staff really helpful and friendly.
Location was excellent. Food was good. Lovely staff.
The noise levels due to close proximity of the rooms. Or maybe because it is wooden floors upstairs.
Big rooms. Location near the beach.
Friendliness, Staff Helpful.
No M-Net available in rooms
Very friendly staff Homely, relaxed atmosphere
Friendly and helpful staff - owner was very helpful. Could see whales frolicking in the sea from our balcony. Lots of interesting artifacts in common areas Clean comfortable rooms Easy,ample parking Excellent breakfast.
Breakfast was excellent.
Only complaint was that the plates were not warm. But will tell manager when next at his loc. Yes I will stay there again.
We stayed one night last year and went back for 3 nights this time. Great views from the balcony over the bay and you can see whales when the sea is calm. Great lounge seating area with plenty of books on the area to browse with a drink from the honesty bar. Good breakfasts too. Nato is so helpful, even to the point of ferrying guests in his car if they don't have their own transport. Hope this won't be our last visit.
Absolutely nothing at all to dislike!
Baleens is a beautiful spot and I would recommend it to anyone. You can walk to Grotto beach from it, the rooms are lovely and the breakfast good. The hosts are marvellous - informative, friendly and helpful. It's a good bit out of town but we found this an advantage as it's very peaceful.
The service was friendly and efficient, the room just what we wanted an the breakfast divine!
That we had to leave!
We have just returned from a 4 stay at the Baleens Guest House and am now planning a much longer stay with them during the next Whale Watching season. We had a car so the location was great as we could just nip into Hermanus or call in at one of the many Whale Watching spots along the coastline. We booked the Family Room which was very spacious and had a Balcony view of both the Mountains and the Bay. The hot breakfast, included in the price of the room, was delicious with freshly cooked eggs and bacon, cereals, toast and jams, a selection of juices, giving us a great start to the day. Can't wait to go back
Ok breakfast Seeview from our room Good terras Friendly staff Good value for money
It's located pretty far from the city centre It wasn't very clean (lots of dust, spiderwebs, clothes from other people still in the cabinets)
Everything was good.
With the floors being wood and the walls being so thin we didn't get much sleep with all the noise of people walking around
Very nice owner who is interested that you have a comfortable stay. It is located 4km outside of Hermanus but with car only 5min from the city. The rooms are comfortable.
Dstv in room
Value for money was good. Atmosphere was relaxed and friendly. Good area and spacious guesthouse.
Bed was lumpy and uncomfortable, curtains are too light, sun shines in early in morning. No tea or coffee station in room.
Easily accessible friendly and value for money
Building with history repurposed for large guest house with many public rooms for guests to watch Tv or play games - all decorated in a comfy Africana style. We had a huge triple with kitchen and view of both mountains and sea. Saw whales from there and on nearby beach. Huge breakfast with eggs cooked to order. Solicitous host was very helpful with luggage and answering questions about area.
We were very pleased with this place. But - old buildings have character - like loose hardware and creaky floorboards. If you are used to the antiseptic look of a five star hotel this is not for you. Also, you would need a car to get back to downtown Hermanus.
Very friendly owner, and helping with a problem I had. It's just a pleasant stay.
The mix of comfort and relaxed atmosphere with good facilities and cleanliness. The location close to the beach and the views.
Nothing I can really think of except fellow guest who rather loudly skyped in the communal upstairs lounge to the extent that we could hear through our wall..
We liked the friendliness of the owner,staff and the setting.Lots of travel books,books and magazines.Table tennis and the football game kept us entertained.The ornaments and pictures set the tone for Baleens.The cash bar was well equiped and prices very fair.
The rooms need a little dusting in places where the cleaning staff omitted to clean and dust.The bed mattress was not of the best quality.
