Breakfast was great
The food and view
The beds weren't made up properly - no fitted sheet, no duvet The tv was connected to a very unsafe two point electricity connection. No two point plugs available in the room The kettle had to be plugged in at the bedside table due to no plug near the tray it was standing on
I wish that there were sun loungers on the lawns overlooking the sea. From a personal point of view I found the beds a bit hard for my liking.
The location is breathtaking, food excellent, staff couldn't be more helpful. Highly recommended!
The location is amazing - Hermanus is a wonderful gem on this beautiful coast! The Marine is a hotel that you would want to return to again!
Room facilities were a little dated - eg Nescafé sachet and kettle vs Nespresso machine
Dined in both restaurants - and both times the meal was delicious. And the staff throughout the hotel were excellent - immediately knew our names, remembered our preferences etc. terrific attention to detail.
The rooms were so tired and scruffy bathrooms desperate need of updating poor water pressure and temperature in the showers. Poor pool side service and food no staff around. Terrible wifi . Very over priced accommodation ..
Friendly staff good food in the restaurants. Bed was comfortable
poor wifi; very average breakfast for 5* hotel bathroom : water warm but not hot, no shower in the room, only a bathtub. Hotel over priced for what you get
location and very good taste of the room & living areas. Nice atmosphere
Paper napkins in all eating areas,not Relais standards.Towels dressing gowns old and abrasive
good room and close to the of Hermanus
We thought that there should be a gym....
The views, super friendly, helpful staff...delicious tea bread for breakfast!
I cannot think of anything that I didn't like.
We loved everything. It was faultless to us... their guests are their prime concern, and they do more than a hundred per cent to make the stay memorable.
Comfort food luxury
The staff were exemplary!
The bed appeared to be too short and my friend enquired at reception as to whether this was normally a room for a child.
Beautiful position and lovely hotel
Avoid at all costs, at their current rates anyway. Very tired and in dire need of a makeover. Breakfast very poor with staff placing all b/fast items at 7am with zero cooling. If you plan to have b/fast at 9.45am prepare for a hot breakfast in every sense of the word. Only hting that was cold was the toast. Wifi in rooms pretty much non existant. Windows and doors and handles in shabby condition. Bathrooms pluged with silicon. Would'nt stay again but it seems the hotel catches enough tourists to make ends meet. These tourists will probably only be caught once too like we were. When checking out zero question from mgt about what I thought of my stay.. but took cash quicker than you can say cold toast!
2 x poached eggs
TV did not work on our second day we were offered to move rooms but was too much trouble.breakfast was good but not great.
The hotel has an old world charm,our suite was sea facing large and beautifully appointed.the position of the hotel is with a magnificent sea view.the village with many shops and restaurants is close.
Way too expensive compared to other hotels in major cities also in good locations
Price - it's a "special occasion only" event Food - nothing to complain about but nothing really memorable
The location - when the whales are in only a sea view will do Decor- peaceful and not overdone Service - outstanding but not fussy Food - nothing to complain about but nothing really memorable
We still had leaking bidet. How can you have that in this class of hotel? The receptionist whom we called to report this, did not know what "bidet" is at all, so I wonder how could she have reported it to the superviser.... The restaurant SEAFOOD is a no-go item. Terrible.
The location is out of this world fantastic. Beautiful rooms, very spacy walk-in wardrobe. Very efficient staff to organize this and that in town. Gorgeous halls, garden.
Late night noise of people right at our window, and when we called to ask for help nothing really happened. Only response after the 2nd call . No rooibosch tea in the room in a SA Hotel? We were given both restaurants ' menus to make a decision. So we wanted to book at the seafood restaurant and was THEN told that is was fully booked for a group- staff should know this when you book in !
We liked our room and the restaurant was excellent. Staff very helpfull
staff went out of their way to please
Breakfast choice was a little limited and the Marine, aside from being a great hotel, isnt cheap
Location Staff, specifically the General Manager who couldnt do enough Views Whales Weather
Room nor aspect of room.
did not stay long enough
Grandstand view of the southern right whales out of our room window..Fantastic
Maintenance on the room needs a bit of attention
The Pavilion is a must and not be missed at absolutely fantastic food!!!
