Baleens Hotel is a highly recommended Hermanus hotel providing accommodation in 21 guest rooms for tourists visiting the Cape Overberg region.

About Baleens Hotel

Baleens is a small, privately owned hotel situated close to Grotto Beach in the picturesque town of Hermanus. Hermanus offers magnificent ocean vistas against a majestic mountain backdrop. Hermanus claims to have the best land based whale watching platform in the world from its elevated cliffs. From as early as May and June the Southern Right Whales can be spotted in Walker Bay, staying until late November.

We are situated six kilometers from the town centre in Voelklip, just one road from the beach and the lagoon. The lagoon is a paradise for bird watchers and flamingos are often seen.

Accommodation

Baleens Hotel has 21 rooms; all double, triple or family. The emphasis is on inexpensive and non frilly accommodation, striving to offer the best possible value for money. All the rooms are ensuite with showers and two have shower and bath. The sea facing rooms have a panoramic wide view of the bay. Children are welcome and we provide cots on request.

The lounge areas are decorated with original artwork and interesting artifacts, mainly of African origin. We encourage a relaxed atmosphere and the guests seem to particularly enjoy the informality offered.

All the rooms have television and cable television is available in the public areas.

Additional Facilities

There is a popular A La Carte restaurant, open in the evenings with a full bar. Many of our patrons elect to spend the day exploring the region and the town, returning to the Hotel in the evening for a drink and dinner. In the morning, the guests often step out for an early walk or run on the beach before breakfast.

Wifi is accessible in the lounges and there is a computer terminal for guests to use free of charge. We recently installed a swimming pool, which is solar heated. On cold evenings, a wood fire crackles in the lounge and in the pub and the atmosphere is most inviting. Guests can enjoy a game of pool.

Breakfast

Breakfast is a freshly prepared simple English breakfast (eggs and bacon), with cereals, yoghurt and a big fresh fruit salad.

Verified reviewvery good

Lovely rustic guesthouse, made excellent by the hospitality extended by Roco and his team. Great place to stay to visit Hermanus and the surrounding area. They offer a hearty breakfast to set you up for the day and the coffee is delicious.
