Centre of Hermanus

Posted Jan 18, 2015
Pros: Location, breakfast, parking, lockable cupboard as well as safe
Cons: WIFI to all rooms, deck chairs on balcony, better cleaning of balcony (number of cigarette butts in evidence)
Location: Nice restaurants, particular lively Tapas Food & Wine Bar overlooking old harbour, which has live music Fri to Sun. Great beaches within short drive.
The Windsor Hotel provides a good base very close to the centre of Hermanus - walking distance from the restaurants etc and right by the cliff path. It's a nice hotel, but without much wow factor - except for the views from the sea facing rooms. Do note, however, the the photos are a bit misleading as there is a road between the hotel and the cliffs. Definitely go for sea facing room - but we found that there was some road noise in our ground floor room and the "balcony/terrace" was too close to pedestrians walking by for much use plus the "pub beer garden" style table/seat combo wasn't comfortable for lazing about - so we'd suggest going for an upper floor. The WIFI does not work in all the rooms.

Great location, staff and service. Bountiful breakfast, lots of choices. Hotel is older and a bit tired. Make sure to get a room overlooking the water.

Great location. Quick walk to all the restaurants.

Posted Oct 21, 2014
Pros: Location and breakfast!
Cons: The rooms do have a tired feeling about them. I would change the lighting in the bathroom and put door handles on the doors. The TV reception was poor
Location: Great location overlooking the sea with olphins and whales com very close to the shore.
2 night stay. Room cleaned and beds made beautifully each day. Staff very warm and friendly. Great breakfasts. Delicious . Room had a slight musty smell and the bathroom lighting was very poor- energy saving bulbs took ages to warm up! Could benefit from door handles on bathroom and room door. Better lighting needed in pool room. My son loved this room. Free easy parking. Overall very good value.

colazione con vista

Posted Sep 7, 2014 on Hotels.com
Albergo di grande fascino sebbene la struttura avrebbe bisogno di qualche lavoro di ammodernamento.La colazione è molto abbondante e viene servita in un sala con vista sulla baia. Con un poco di fortuna, nel periodo giusto, si può mangiare guardando le balene saltare in mare.

Une vue imprennable sur les baleines mais un hotel un peu vieillot

Gute zentrale Lage

Posted Sep 6, 2014
Etwas in die Jahre gekommen, aber alles sehr sauberund gut gepflegt, sehr guter und freundlicher Service, gutes Frühstück, gute und zentrale Lage. Für Gäste stehen separat ein Fernsehraum, Kaminzimmer mit Bibliothek Raum mit Billardtisch und Kicker zur Verfügung. Insgesamt sehr gutes Preis-Leistungsverhältnis. Wer ist nicht unbedingt topmodern braucht, ist bestens aufgehoben. Zimmer mit Meerblick buchen lohnt sich, aber unbedingt darauf achten, dass das Zimmer nicht im Hinter- bzw. Nebenhaus ist.

Sejour agreable

Tres bon sejour dans cet hotel retro. Bien place on peut voir passer les baleines juste devant la chambre. Fantastique!
