Friendliness and cleanliness. Hermanus is small, but tourist friendly.
No bad experiences.
No sockets to use a blowdryer near a mirror ; Wi Fi didn't work; inconvenient for carrying suitcases upstairs ; no views to the port; checking out time of 10 am is too early for a holiday traveller
Decent sized apartment, clean and tidy throughout. Wi-fi good. Only thing it lacked was a waching machine! (we have 2 small children...). Handy to be above shops but woudl rather have had something overlooking coast line.
Noise. First night we could hear the person in the room next to us snoring.. the 2nd night we had noise from 4 young people partying so the apartment has very thin walls... traffic noise early in the morning is also quite loud (although this is perhaps to be expected).
It was my husband's 80th birthday and so we treated ourselves and my sister and her husband to 2 nights in Hermanus at the very excellent Whale Coast Hotel. Not only were the staff friendly and helpful in every way - they even made a note of why we were there and presented the birthday 'boy' with a card and a bottle of wine on the day. We could find no fault and believe me we have travelled a lot and stayed in some pretty great places.
Nothing was amiss.
Location in centre of Hermanus. Well appointed and comfortable accommodation.
Wi-Fi was patchy
Our apartment could see the sea. It was clean and comfortable. Central location and secure parking.
Location Beds were really comfortable Staff was good
Cleanliness was a serious problem, especially in the kitchen No washing machine or tumble dryer Minimum crockery
excellent location, very friendly, helpful and professional hotel staff. excellent décor very clean and well maintained
Enjoyed the fact that everything you would find in your own home was available to you. The accommodation was wonderfully spacious. The staff constantly kept you advised of what was happening even the possibility of load shedding. They provided candles, etc. The cleaning staff came to service the rooms when it was convenient for us. The convenience of having the shops and restaurants nearby was a bonus.
Loved the location as it was easy to walk everywhere to shops and restaurants. no hassling with parking in town. The underground parking was safe and secure and that impressed the husband. A very spacious and clean apartment and friendly, helpful staff. Would definitely use again!!
not much of a view, however we were out most of the time so it didn't really get us down that much. small DSTV selection.
Great Proximity Clean and Spacious
Been in a shopping Centre wanted a balcony with Sea View
The location was perfect for us. Swimming beach just minutes away. The apartment was sufficient for us with 3 teenage girls and an 8 year old.
Sometimes the noise of the shoppers downstairs and the traffic.
loved the lodge, it is only 5 minutes walk from the sea and restaurants. one minute from small shopping and a big super market as the lodge above the center but you don't feel it as it is quite. Staff are so helpful , very secure car park. We felt we are at home. Flat is divided into two floor, can cook, we bought our meat and had bbq in the balcony. Love it, nice view from our lounge, spacious and luxury. Recommended, don't look for a different lodge, better than the impression on the internet
Nothing i didn't like except I had to stay only for one night
The accommodation was very clean, comfortable and staff were very accommodating and friendly. Very central and we could walk to restaurants and shops.
The fact that the Hotel was located on top of a shopping center. It was noisy as it was December and the patio overlooked the parking lot. It is a very busy tome of the year and shops were open from very early until late.
Close to centre of town
Noise on top of shopping centre Time of cleaning...some days only after 4 Cleaning not thorough
Broken toilet seats. Aircon not working properly. Aircon only available in main bedroom. Not enough towels for a family of 4.
Well appointed appointments. Good central location, we did not take the cars out at all. Lots of space for 6 adults. We did not try the new eating facility but maybe next time
lack of view but understandable considering the location. Limited DSTV channels
The location is right in the heart of Hermanus, at the Checkers shopping centre which is easy to find and the town and main harbour areas are easy to reach. We had a 3 bedroom apartment which was spacious and very clean and nicely appointed. The staff, particularly Jaco the Assistant GM and Brenda, were very friendly and attentive and the warm hospitality was appreciated. It's very good space and braai area are great for hosting your own parties and if you have children, they have a lot of room to run around. They also recommended that we have Christmas lunch at La Pentola, a nearby restaurant which was excellent. The staff were most helpful with suggestions and arranging airport transfers and reservations.
We were there during a particularly windy few days, and at night, the howling of the wind in the master bedroom roof is very loud. Also, there is only one air conditioner in the master bedroom, and none in the other two bedrooms, so we all slept in the master bedroom as the weather was very hot during the season we stayed. There were fans in the other rooms but they were quite noisy, so we opted to stay in the air conditioned bedroom. If you don't require air conditioning, then this won't be an issue. Wifi worked well upstairs when connected but seemed to run out quickly. However, the staff were very accomodating to provide more wifi vouchers when we asked them. There's no swimming pool with the hotel, but we went to the nearby Marine Tidal pool, which was spectacular.
Location Comfortable rooms Peace and quiet Close to shops, restaurants, centre of town Close walking distance
location and comfort of the apartment
carpets were filthy! never replaced any coffee, toilet paper ect and servicing of the apartment was done very poorly
The hotel was reasonably clean.
The apartment was stunning, so clean and spacious. The beds were really comfy and the kitchen had all the facilities you'd need! The staff were exceptional and it's absolutely excellent value for money. Would highly recommend!
The apartment was spacious with neutral decor and a downstairs bathroom. The white linen and towels, heated towel rail. Helpful, friendly staff. Excellent kitchen, well equipped
The apartment was well finished and very comfortable and spacious, ideal for a larger family.
Location overlooking a car park was noisy and ruined the holiday.. Difficult to sleep and intrusive when out on the balcony.
The apartment is spacious with comfortable rooms. You feel like at home! The staff knows how to treat their clients... We strongly recommend this hotel!!
