Les Baleines
Ranked #39 of 88 Hermanus B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 October 2017 via mobile

We booked Les Baleines as part of our 20th wedding anniversary. We were not disappointed the local area is stunningly beautiful which is equalled by this exquisite home. There has been a lot of thought, care and attention put into the interior of this property and it has a truly luxurious but homely feel to it.

We stayed in the Beluga Whale room with its own private balcony and stunning sea views, this room would give any Five Star hotel a run for its money.

Our hosts were amazing making us feel very welcome, they arranged everything for us including booking restaurants, great white shark cage diving and whale watching. The breakfast offered was professionally presented and extremely tasty.

We can not recommend this place highly enough and will definitely be back for another stay.

A friendly B&B, quiet location - our room had a great view of the ocean so we were lucky, not sure any others had that. Very good breakfast and friendly staff.
Plenty of whales to be seen. Easy drive to Franschoek and the Mullineux vineyard over the passes which was a stunning drive and worth the effort.

Lovely B&B, well kitted out. Ideal location in quiet street about 4km from Hermanus town. Teresa welcomed us, had dinner for that night booked in Burgundy for us (if we wanted which we did). Lovely views from pool deck / snooker room of ocean. 15min walk to grotto beach and dutchies cafe for a lovely snack! Won't go wrong staying here.

I loved my stay at this place, we were lucky enough to stay in the top suite which is situated right next to the main area where you have breakfast, it has fabulous views out to the pool and further on to the sea. There is direct access through the French doors out to the pool area which was a lovely touch. I actually viewed all the rooms at the guest house and they were all done to an exceptionally high standard so any room won't disappoint.
The breakfast was the best I had on my 2 week trip, so beautifully presented and cooked to perfection!
Please don't hesitate in staying here, you will love it!!

Sadly we were only there one night, great place in a great setting. The room was very good, spotlessly clean with all the facilities you require, lounges and dining room were stunning and well set out. Nearby Hermanus offered good restaurant's and shops as well as small galleries to explore. Breakfast was fantastic with food served by friendly and helpful staff. Very peaceful setting and my wife used the pool. Overall we had a great stay and I would not hesitate in recommending anyone to stay there.
