    We were advised that the property is wheelchair friendly, if you are a paraplegic traveling on your own or do not have a strong man or two accompanying you, I would not recommend this property if you are wheelchair bound. The rooms, side access as well as main entrance have a ridge you have to get over at the base of the doorway, even if you can get over that ridge, the central courtyard furniture on the stoep/ patio is too wide for a wheelchair to maneuver past - which means you have to go down one fairly high step to get around the furniture then climb the high step without a ramp to get to your room entrance door. I’m really sorry I did not take any pictures of the set up to further validate this claim. Even the shower has a sliding door with lip at the base for the door rollers, no chair was placed inside and the shower head is not handheld, showering is near impossible if you can’t support yourself with your legs. The location of the establishment is great, breakfast was decent and the staff were friendly enough.

    Nothing, everything was great

    Spacious room with all the amenities we needed. Short and safe walk into the main areas, owner very informative. The secure parking is nice, but the entire area looked very safe (we got back from town walking at night without any issues). Breakfast was great, nice touch with the homemade jams ;) As it was off-season we were the only guests, that means everything was quiet, but we couldn't use the pool (too cold outside).

    We had a great stay. Booked two double rooms with single use, big rooms and comfortable. Everything there we could need. Comfy sofas by the pool to chat when we came back to the accommodation. And a honesty bar, so if we would have liked some drinks or even chocolate we could buy it 24/7. A short walk to the harbour pool, beautiful walks and some nice restaurants. Beautiful city. We only stayed one night and would have loved to stay much longer.

    After booking a twin room at the agreed rate with Booking.com the management informed us that the booking was for 1 person only and that they charge per person and not per room. This information was only given upon checking out - very cheeky. Very unprofessional and uncurtious towards their guests.

    The WiFi , WiFi isnt there between 23 hours and 6 in the morning. Thats not that we wanted. And it was not in the information when I booked 5 rooms for 8 pers. And when we arrived back at the room After Dinner in Hermanus , in the evening we had no WiFi at 22 hours ... so that was very bad. When you want send something to your family far at home. When something at the breakfast was empty , you couldn't get extra. Other people eat the yoghurt. So our group of 8 persons couldn't eat yoghurt as breakfast. So for the next time wifi 24 hours a day and this place is a 9

    The lady was very kind , rooms are clean, big , beds are good. At breakfast the lady cooked and baked eggs for us, we liked that very much! She was very kind. We saw her also when we were walking in Hermanus and she greeted us. Also very kind

    • Leisure trip
    • Family with young children

    Travelling with young kids and 4 grandparents, especially after a 5 hour trip can be quite exhausting. There are too many rules that need to be read as the hosts did not take the time to explain them to us in any detail. Suffice to say that we all missed the fact that a hot breakfast is only served between 8 and 9 in the morning, do after an enhausting trip and a late night, our party of 8 got to breakfast at 9h30 to find that we could only have a cold breakfast on a very cold and wet day. No exception could be made even though we occupied 3 of the 7 guest rooms! The kids could not make a sound in the pool area, as other guests couldn't be disturbed, even in broad daylight. The irony is that there is a display of how guests come first at Baleia, however those words don't materialise.

    Baleia was a neat, clean place with a very convenient location.

    The 4 person family suite has only 1 shower-room, so a bit of a queue after a day on the beach.

    A short walk to the centre of Hermanus. Breakfasts are good.

    The room was clean and reasonably spacious but was tired and in need of an upgrade.

    Room was ready before time and the breakfast was good if limited in choice. The owners were friendly and helpful and we would go back again if occasion arose

    Cheaper but then I say that about everything.

    The rooms are situated around a lovely peaceful courtyard with a plunge pool in the middle, perfect for reading with a a cool beer from the honesty bar.
