The 15 Best Places to Stay in Hermanus

The 15 Best Places to Stay in Hermanus

From luxe lodges to contemporary self-catering villas and cliff-hugging escapes, here’s the cream of accommodation in this once-sleepy fishing village.

Occupying pride of place on Walker Bay’s spectacular sunshine coast, Hermanus is widely known as the best land-based whale-watching destination in the world! As such, this once-sleepy fishing village is now a bustling seaside resort, with an impressive array of places to stay, excellent seafood restaurants to feast at, boisterous bars, quirky boutiques and galleries, and a bountiful Saturday morning farmers’ market that brims with delicious local produce and treats.

During whale season (June to December), the town gets ridiculously busy, and accommodation fills up quickly. But fortunately, Hermanus has year-round appeal – its beautiful beaches, exhilarating hikes, and the world famous Hemel-en-Aarde wine valley are just some of the attractions that make it such a sought-after escape. If you’re looking to spend a day or more in this magnificent part of the world, you might like to check out our favourite places to stay in Hermanus.

If you know of any wonderful Walker Bay sojourns you think we’d love, let us know in the comments below.

Please note The road between Hermanus and Stanford is currently under construction until 2021, and while it is open to vehicles, delays can be expected due to a stop-go system.

Just a three-minute drive from the bustling village of Hermanus, this guest lodge is perfectly positioned for those who cherish seclusion but also enjoy dipping in and out of the action.
The lodgings The hotel boasts a particular glam-beach-resort feel, with pillars and marble floors setting the scene throughout, and deep, white slip-covered couches in all the communal lounge areas. There are 11 uniquely decorated rooms – divided into Deluxe Superior, Superior, Luxury, and Standard – each of which has its own private balcony.
Onsite and nearby attractions In addition to two pools (one of which is ocean-facing), a sun deck and cliff-hugging dining area (where breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served), there are a couple of ocean-facing sofas, where sipping a G&T while watching the whales and dolphins frolic in the bay is imperative. Nanny’s Beach, arguably the most stunning beach in the Western Cape, beckons below, while the town centre is a three-minute drive away.
