      The hotel is near all the amenities and would suit anybody who likes shopping, the outdoors, wildlife, sports and other outdoor activities. The staff are helpful and knowledgeable about the activities and bookings for the activities which Hermanus caters for. There are many restaurants within walking distance and the location is therefore suitable for older people.

      I did not find anything lacking or that I disliked. My stay was pleasant and the hotel is a little better or similar to other hotels I stayed at most recently in Australia.

      Mainly the position.rooms were neat. staff were fine.

      Staff did not give information. Like where to park ones car. Simple things like bringing toast to the table that has little space and leavig a large plate with nospace for anything else. Small buit irritating

      Being able to see whales from the bedroom window. Comfortable old hotel.

      Lack of a lift may be difficult for old or infirm guests on the 3rd floor..

      Cold room, cold water, run down

    • Older travelers

      The view from the room can't be beaten. There are however some rooms at the back which don't have any views, but the rocks and rock pools are as close as five metres from the hotels front door.

      It does not seem to have a bar, nor does it serve lunch and dinner. The rooms don't have Mnet

      Great staff. Very accomodating and helpful. Well situated and safe. Old world charm.

      Waiting for breakfast -eventually could not wait anymore and went elsewhere for breakfast. Room ran out of hot water on sunday morning.

      The help we received from Henriet in accommodating my mom in a wheelchair.

    • Older travelers
      7.0

      Quiet peaceful surroundings with unobscured view fo the bay.

      No DStv in the rooms, feather pillows (just my preference for a comfortable/good night's sleep). No teaspoons with the coffee machine

      Its old and qauint charm. Its proximity to the sea and the Hermanus cbd. The reasonable prices for a comfortable stay.

      The breakfasts have remained the same and are not appertizingly cooked. This weekend past the bacon for example was white and looked barely cooked. One can diversify without breaking the bank and cook and present things better. The hotel is old and quant but perhaps a little upgrade and modernizing without loosing the charm E.G. redo all the wood and revarnish. Replace carpets they are getting musty. Beds are hard from over use. Get dstv

      Fabulous location and sea views. Lovely stylish old Hotel.

      The bedrooms seem to have have lacked attention for some time. Furniture is old and poorly maintained. A great ptiy.

    • Family with children
      8.0

      Very pleasant stay, friendly staff. Delicious breakfast. Great location. Very reasonable.

      The only comment would be that the interior of the reception rooms could do with an improvement.

      Breakfast and View

      Sense of non-cleanliness I.E. carpets, towels been washed so many times it is scary, bedding also old. I stay in the Windsor for the past 3 year whalewatching and it is obvious how it is deteriorating. The stay is currently not value for money r 1350 P.N.

    • Older travelers

      Some couple moved into the room next door and kept us awake till late. Tv channels need to be upgraded and the tv itself is not to standard.

    • Older travelers

      Breakfast was reasonable but well overpriced compared to more stately hotels

      Bed and pillows were hard and uncomfortable the room was basic
