Harbour House Hotel in Hermanus enjoys the most prominent of positions in the heart of the old harbor area, flanked by the ocean and the bustling center of this vacation town.
Score from 75 reviews Very good
location, architecture and interior still very appealing for its age.
some maintenance urgent needed in not so obvious areas like wall tiles coming off on balconies etc.
creeky pull out couch inadequate to sleep on. I have made a recommendation on a previous visit but dont think anyone reads it
Spa and location very good.
Warm pool very dirty, stayed 10 nights and 2 items on the floor hasn't been picked up or moved at all one in the bathroom and one in the room.
the service was poor because the waiters did put the orders through to the kitchen as we order it but when we recieved our food it was not what we ordered. Speak to your chef and tell him or her to learn the menu
Great rooms, beautiful spa and pool area. Wonderful service.
none I can think off
Excellent stay. Really enjoyed it. Beautiful. And a lovely way to get away from the daily buzz.
Do not stay for too long or you will get bored. Two or three nights at max is perfect
everything is outstanding
Location is brilliant Golf Course & Spa is great The general outlay of the hotel is great The bathroom is spacious & shower pressure is amazing
Rooms smelled a bit like smoke Rooms need a bit of an upgrade - it's starting to look a bit too "late 90's African" - the rate per room is a bit over priced for the outdated room decor
SPECTACULAR SETTING GREAT SERVICE
HEATED POOL WAS COLD. NEED MORE FACILITIES FOR KIDS
Location and staff service were excellent.
The room shown on booking.com that we booked was not the room we were given. The pictures of the room shown were for the presidential suite while we were actually booked a standard room. As you can imagine this was not the start we wanted especially as the first hour was spent arguing with staff over who's fault this was. We were eventually upgraded to a suite which was an improvement but still far short of what we were promised by booking.com
Helpfull Staff and excellent food.
Kids not allowed in indoor pool
The room was clean and well equipped The Staff were all brilliant The Spa experience was excellent Breakfast was amazing!
Prior to booking the Spa, I struggled to get hold of the staff for specials, as well as a booking confirmation. The in-room snack and drink's pricing was obscene.
- staff - location - premises design / layout - flair - restaurant/food
- general state of repair - wood trimmings coming loose - upholstery showing too much wear not only in the rooms
Lovely location. Specious rooms with a balcony (we had a lagoon view room which was fantastic!). Friendly and helpful staff. Very good breakfast. The dinner "a la carte" at the restaurant was good, but nothing fancy and buffet dinner was just ok. Beautiful golf course, though in need of better maintenance. Good spa facilities and treatments.
Poor and patchy wi-fi in the room, no wi-fi at the restaurant. Messed up with our order at the bar - had to wait for 45 mins for our meals to arrive from the kitchen, but they gave our drinks for free as an excuse. Could be busy with corporate groups.
Overall experience was good.
Gym wasn't operational. No indoor pool for babies or small kids.
This is my second stay at this hotel so clearly I enjoy the hotel and especially the amenties like the golf course, pool, indoor heated pool, spa and the gym (I do not stay at any hotel without a decent gym). The location is beautiful and the hotel is close to some lovely little villages like Kleinmond, Betty's Bay and Hermanus, the epicentre for whale watching. The last time I was at the hotel I had a conversation with the General Manager - Leon about the service, especially the friendliness of the staff as it wasn't good at all, however I am pleased to say this has definitely improved so well done on that, now make it amazing!
Unfortunately though my experience at the gym was 'disgusting' I am sorry to say. As mentioned above, a decent gym for me is an absolute essential component when choosing a hotel and the gym here is okay in terms of equipment, however some of the equipment is over 12 years old and in serious need of an upgrade especially the cross trainer trainer and weights equipment. My 'disgust' however is not the age of the equipment but the cleanliness of the gym equipment (I have included photos below) and as you can see there are sweat marks, dust, spider webs and grime all over the equipment and because I used to import this equipment into South Africa as an agent of Technogym (in Italy) I know the equipment very well and how it needs to be maintained and cleaned. This equipment needs to be cleaned daily because of all the body fluids and sweat on the handles, seats and upholstery and what makes it worse is there are no cleaning materials like antiseptic wipes or bottles of disinfectant spray and paper towels for visitors to use and hence I noticed some people using their own sweaty towels to clean the equipment.... yughhh! I then proceeded to tell someone sitting outside in the spa area and they then brought a cleaner and another person to look and the final result was the cleaning woman came with a duster and dusted the spider webs away. That was it! Please can you guys clean the equipment daily with antiseptic wipes or disinfectant spray including all the floor mats which I am sure haven't been cleaned for weeks if not months (this is evident in the condition of the mats), also the handles on all the equipment like the treadmills and bikes, the upholstery on the weights equipment and so on and so on. This is meant to be a hygienic place of exercise and due to the nature of this kind of facility it needs to be cleaned with disinfectants and not just wiped down with a rag and dusted with a duster. I really hope this will be done starting ASAP!
Room, property and spa facilities were superb. Staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast wonderful.
The views were amazing.
The staff cancelled spa booking because therapist wanted to take time off ! And we were only informed when we went to checkin at the spa.
Lovely rooms, very comfortable bed. Did not have time to use any of facilities on offer.
Adjustable shower, prefer fixed shower head.
Stay way a dream. The room how ever had a few niggles. We could not close the folding door screen between the bathroom and the bedroom and it was actually broken. There was a crack in the tiles in the toliet. Minibar bar prices were crazy so best to avoid. The breakfast is well worth the stay. The dinner menu at the main hotel was well worth it and the food was amazing. I have never seen such an extensive room service menu and a wine list. Great to see a hotel support the local wine farms.
To leave and go home.
