The stay was great. No issues with the accommodation or the breakfasts. The service was great and the guest house is well situated to travel around the Hermanus and the surrounding towns. Try and get a sea facing room!

Warm welcome from Barry and Scottie (the scottie dog) and a suite with a view, and wonderful bathroom, of the harbour. Great local knowledge and help booking restaurants and activities. Definitely recommend.

The bed was comfortable - perfect for some R&R. The bathroom was also spacious and very clean. The guesthouse also has a lounge with sofas and chairs upstairs with a... More

We have been staying at Harbour Vue on several occasions since 2013 and although we are sure there must be other lovely guesthouses in Hermanus, for us there was no need to look for any alternatives. Situated between the CBD and the new harbour and virtually on top of the cliff path the location is as convenient as we could... More
