My husband and I spent 3 nights at Birkenhead House and loved every minute there. The actual house is stunning, basically a cool beach house with every possible facility you would need. We had room 5 which was lovely and although it didn’t have a...More
The small hotel is perfectly located in front of the ocean. Easy walks to either direction offering amazing views of both the ocean, rocks and gardens. The views are stunning, the service outstanding and so is the food.
A fantastic view from the cliff tops. A boutique hotel (twelve rooms all large and very comfortable) with a 1st class restaurant and a fresh menu for every meal. The staff are very caring and there whenever you need them. Excellent transport vehicle to take...More

We left a tip for the maid in each room we occupied over a 3 night stay and we tipped the drivers who took us Shark diving etc and when collected from Hermanus.We didn't tip general staff,I have never tipped hotel staff in the past only cleaner and porters,I'm now feeling quilty and wondered if we should have,but it's not something we do in the UK.The only hotel staff we tipped were at the Safari lodge we stayed at as there lifestyle was slightly different to those at the Birkenhead or the hotel in Cape Town.The Birkenhead is wonderful,enjoy!
