Ideally situated on the cliffs of Hermanus, boasting a phenomenal vista of Walker Bay, this guesthouse continues to retain the elegance of colonial architecture.
Score from 136 reviews Excellent
Featuring spectacular views of the ocean, Pelagus House offers rooms with a TV. It’s just a short walk to the cliff top for the best views of dolphins and whales.
Score from 108 reviews Wonderful
Combining the benefits of a self-catering unit with those of a luxury hotel, these apartments are located in the heart of Hermanus - South Africa’s whale-watching capital.
Score from 31 reviews Excellent
Only a 5-minute drive from central Hermanus, overlooking the cliffs and ocean, this guesthouse combines African and European design in the heart of Hermanus.
Score from 110 reviews Very good
We just so enjoy the view, the convenience and proximity to the town, just not enough time to walk along the cliffs.
Everything was just great
Position and view. Relaxed atmosphere, warm welcome.
Great position with wonderful view. Lovely room. Very friendly and helpful hosts. Couldn't have been better.
Room standard. Excellent!! Atmosphere fantastic. Great breakfast. Sea view. Comfort. Lovely surroundings. Very nice service from host family.
The view, the honesty bar and the room size.
The location a bit far to walk to the town center for senior citizens.
One can walk along the cliffs and down to the beach with a wonderfully rocky coastline. At the same time, it is easy (and safe) to walk to downtown Hermanus where there is a wealth of attractions and restaurants.
Unfortunately we were there at the wrong time of the year and saw no whales!!
The guest house was lovely and we had a wonderful time!! Rooms were comfortable and clean. It is in a beautiful postion within walking distance to everything! Would highly recommend it for anyone! The owners were very accomodating!
Relaxed place, large comfortable room with great views straight on to the ocean. Owners were very interesting and informative about holidaying in South Africa. Would definitely return here.
Breakfast room was a bit lacking in ambience. Could perhaps have tables in the courtyard to give more space. Set menu but were happy to go beyond it if asked, e.g very good pancakes.
Loved Charmaine and Hylton - just down to earth lovely hosts.
Warm welcome. Comfortable suite. Good breakfast
Excellent breakfast. Friendly hosts. Glad there was an honest bar policy as there are no pubs/restaurants within easy walking distance. Plenty of restaurants a short drive away.
Nice people, nice room with a great view, easy to get to Town.
Traffic noise was a bit disturbing.
Thank you very much for a woderful stay..we were only there ine night but Hilton made us feel very welcome; will recommend and stay here again
We loved everything here. It feels like home and owners Charmen and Hilton are so warm, and helpful. She has the adapter for charging battery too.the 11 k cliff walk path is just in front of the house. You can sit on the balcony and watch the whales if they are around. 1 k from town and restaurants. Perfect location.
2 nights was too short of a stay.
Bad internet access
A very relaxed time with very friendly and helpful staff. we would stay there agian.
- Need at least one international news channel on the TV. - Nice to greet the staff/owners and have a few words over breakfast - but found it difficult to concentrate eating the nice breakfasts offered as the communications carried on throughout the meal. Some guests like this but we found it a bit much. We prefer a little more privacy over breakfast. -
Big room good facilities
Slightly out of town
Large rooms, sea view with possibility of seeing whales. Lovely staff.
Rooms feeling very humid.
Very nicely appointed, outstandingly comfortable beds, duvets and pillows, quality linen. Very helpful owners. Breakfast stood out as by far the best we had in 5 hotels in the Western Cape. Great location on the cliff, easy walking distance to the Harbour for quality seafood, and to the city centre. Great walks along the cliff path.
Owners are very friendly. Just need to cross the road to join the cliff walking path.
There was a bad smell coming from the pool in front garden. You could small it in downstairs bedroom.
We were especially impressed with the personal attention of the owners. The location for us was perfect - the cliff walk right across the road, excellent view.
Just the best place with a fantastic view over the see The breakfast is very very good. The style is luxury and at same time country side.
Beautiful room with a nice sea view. Very friendly staff and helpful with suggestions of restaurants and things to do in the area.
