This luxurious guest house faces the Atlantic Ocean, and is located just 5 minutes’ walk from both the beach and the centre of Hermanus. This is a popular destination for whale watching.

This hotel is within easy walking distance, 330 yards, of the business center, pubs and restaurants in Hermanus and less than a 10 minute walk from the town’s old harbor.

Overlooking Walker Bay, each apartment at the 45 Marine Drive has self-catering facilities. Located along the cliffs of Hermanus, it is just 300 metres from the town centre.

Operated by the nicest people, great location, a 15 minute walk on the most beautiful path overlooking the ocean, from the front of the property to the center of Hermanus. Great breakfast with choices of cereal, yogurt, bread and cold cuts as well as eggs, sausages, bacon, omelletes etc... cooked to order.

Everything was fabulous...a 10.
The staff was wonderful along with the beautiful view. Best of all the very charming couple that owns it, Charmaine and Hylton. We will return for sure !!

Would have appreciated a small fridge for ice and some refreshments

Road noise... That stands between the guest house and the actual cliff... No one on site (at least at sight) from 5:30pm.
Sympathy from the person who received us.

Fantastic guesthouse. The room was most luxurious with a good size balcony giving fantastic whale watching views out to sea. We were greeted by Charmaine as we got out of our car and the warm welcome continued for the rest of our short stay. Great cooked breakfast in the morning and we were sorry to leave.

Within walking distance to the center. The owners were very friendly and very helpful. Ample private parking on the premises.

It would be hard to criticise anything except maybe the road outside is busy and could be noisy. But that wasn't an issue.
Excellent room with stunning views. In fact we saw some whales from our room. Friendly staff, good breakfast and very clean. The coastal path was just across the road and you could walk into town or the harbour in about 15 minutes.

We just so enjoy the view, the convenience and proximity to the town, just not enough time to walk along the cliffs.

The location a bit far to walk to the town center for senior citizens.
The view, the honesty bar and the room size.

Unfortunately we were there at the wrong time of the year and saw no whales!!
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.
