Location, location, location ... and food

Posted Nov 19, 2016
The Marine must occupy one of the world's great natural locations. Perched on the cliffs overlooking the Indian Ocean in the resort town of Hermanus, there is no better place to enjoy breakfast. Walk along the cliffs, visit the beach, watch for whales ... what's not to like? BTW - the food is great.

Room noisy, you can hear the guests in the room above even just walking around in room , not acceptable for a 5 star hotel .

Great hotel for viewing whales - views from bedroo

Posted Sep 20, 2016
Pros: Location and views over the sea.
Cons: The food - hot dishes seemed to be over cooked.
Location: Perfect for whale watching and just a short stroll from the town centre. Right on the cliff path which is a beautiful walk.
The hotel was very welcoming. Drinks and warm towels on arrival, plenty of information. The swimming pool turned out not to be well heated so did not yet used which was a disappointment. It had the chill taken off the water but not much more! The rooms were lovely. Definitely worth paying extra for one with a sea view. You can watch the whales from your window. The restaurant was a little disappointing. The food was OK but not as special as we had thought it would be, and over priced. We ended up having breakfast in a little bistro around the corner.

The area is beautiful, and our room had a fantastic view of the sea with access to the cliff walk. The wifi could be variable.

lovely people & place

It's such a pleasure to still be here at the Marine (our 2nd stay with a 4 day side trip). What makes this hotel so special is the people - the extra smiles, the little touches - they really went the extra mile for us. The very kindly found us a room with a little extra space so we could unexpectedly have our niece and nephew with us for a night. They made us special food in the middle of an insane new years eve serivce (the food is by far the best in the area) and just made the experience fantastic. The setting is incredible - right on the water. The building needs a bit of work, but it's charm is certainly in tact.

Hotel on a cliff top in Hermanus.

Posted Nov 20, 2015
Pros: The location, the staff, the food, the decor.
Cons: A small night light in the bathrooms would be very helpful.
Location: Mostly whale watching, but nobody told the whales I had come to see them.
Lovely hotel and wonderful staff. The only light in the bathroom was blinding - bad in the middle of the night. Otherwise all was lovely and the food was superb.
