Arrived for a two day stay at Misty Waves, was shown to our very luxurious room, the staff couldn't do enough to help. Breakfast was lovely with a big selection. We travelled with our 9 year old son and was given an adequate second bedroom. Will return. Thank you

An extremely well run small boutique hotel which is within a 5 minute walk to the centre of Hermanus and it sits opposite the ocean. Décor is purposely of a traditional South African slightly colonial style but it absolutely suits the property totally. Nothing fuddy-duddy about it at all. Extremely helpful staff. No restaurant within the main building but it... More

Dear Guest Thank you for all the very positive points you raised. We would have loved to have a discussion with you with regards to the negative points. Such as the light switches. The architects and developers of our new rooms were of the opinion that automatic light switches would make life so much easier for guests. As soon as... More

This is a small independent hotel that acts like a very classy big city hotel. The décor in the public areas is beautiful. You feel as though you are in a Fairmount or similar property.

Stayed for 2 nights in Hermanus to hopefully see the whales - we did..! Misty Waves was chosen for the location and the informative web site. It overlooks the cliffs where you can watch the whales relaxing and at play and is also within a 5/10 minute walk of the town centre. We had a first floor room with balcony... More

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 fisher mans heritage cottage "Mon Desir" next to the hotel pool. The Buffet breakfasts 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.
