We stayed for a couple of nights in Misty Waves on our tour of the Garden Route. What a charming hotel. Helpul attentive staff. Beautiful rooms. Lovely pool area. Secure parking. Easy walking distance to the center. We loved our stay and hope to return at some point in the future.

Dear Guest To start of we really appreciate your lovely review about the hotel and restaurant. We regret that you were not totally satisfied with the room you received. However it is a fact that we ALWAYS just as a treat do upgrade or move our guests into a better level room if available. It is standard procedure at Misty...

Second time at Misty Waves and didn't disappoint. Rooms nicely decorated and very spacious. Breakfast has a super spread and, for us a really nice touch is the private cinema where we could watch the DVD of our shark cage diving trip in comfort whilst Lorenzo the duty manager brought up drinks and snacks. Great place.

A must when travelling along the coastline. Very nice rooms, superbly located, great breakfast and excellent service. In walking distance from the town center. Using the cliff walk is particularly enjoyable. We stayed for two nights and loved it!

Unfortunately the hotel is expensive for what you get. It is a nice hotel and the view from in front of the hotel is breathtaking. However, for this price the pool wasn't even up and running. The rooms looked a little outdated. The salad I ordered was very good though.

Dear Guest As you stated the views are breathtaking and the sound of the waves is mesmerizing and sometimes at night it sounds as if it splash on your verandah. Our registered logo is just that "Lie in bed and watch the Whales" :) It is unclear what you mean by the pool was not up and running? It is...

We spent a night in Hermans at the misty waves hotel. Our room was clean, spacious and very nice.

The reception was very good and friendly. Our room was very spacious and beautiful. We were welcomed in the room with a bottle of wine of our choice. The breakfast was good and we enjoyed it very much. The outside restaurant is a bit outdated and the food choices not very good.

We recently stayed for one night in room 101. Check- in was pleasant and friendly, the room was nice but dated, especially the bathroom, which is old and tired but was clean.

Dear Guest We regret that your stay was not to your satisfaction. There are but a few darker colour rooms (not dated just different) the rest of the rooms is all in a light colour.

Dear Sir We find this review for The Misty Waves Hotel very unfair, as the issues relate to The Deck & Galley at Mon Desir, which is a restaurant by different owners, and is a separate entity. We however take your unhappiness very serious and will discuss with the owners of the restaurant as your comments reflects negatively on the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Misty Waves Boutique Hotel**** Lie in bed and watch the whales from your luxury suite. Amazing new additions done to the already stunning hotel! Very impressive Penthouse Level Suites like most rooms with magnificent views on the whales in season. The hotel outsourced their restaurant to two well known restauranteurs and it moved to the popular fisherman's heritage cottage "Mon Desir" next to the hotel pool. The buffet breakfast is still outstanding and hotel management on duty ensure that the restaurant provide the same high quality, presentation and service as in the past. Enjoy the sun heated pool and whirlpool or the private Jacuzzi! Just a four minute walk to the historic Hermanus Village Centre with craft markets, Whale House Museum, Old Harbour Museum and 30 plus excellent restaurants to choose from. Hotel also arranges a variety of nature experiences such as water rafting, water tubing, shark cage diving, whale watching in season, forest adventures such as tree top sliding, rock climbing and scenic quadbike trips through the Hemel & Aarde with world famous wine estates. New additions such as addiditonal luxury suites and a lovely 16 seater cinema/theater are now available for the use of our guests. ... more   less
