We stayed at Baleia for one night only following a shark diving tour but would happily have stayed extra nights as both the B&B and Hermanus were lovely. The owner was very welcoming and made us feel at home and the rooms were spacious and very clean and tidy. We were 2 adults and 2 children sharing the family room...

Beautiful, clean and friendly guest house. The owners were very nice and helpful, breakfast was excellent. The pool is clean and the quite courtyard is priceless. The location is good, it is a walkable distance to the waterfront.

We had a room round the swimming pool which was just heaven after two flights from Europe to CapeTown. The rooms were comfortable and airy, the breakfast was substantial (and I say that as an endurance cyclist) and it was a short walk from the sea. We all enjoyed our stay there, and would certainly come again. I liked the...

Whilst having fewer amenities than other 4* places we've stayed on this trip (air con, safe, hairdryer in room etc), this was reflected in the price and made a lovely one night stopover for us with a genuine welcome from the owners and a very good cooked breakfast. The cliff walk was stunning.

I stayed here for as part of a Garden Route road trip. Unfortunate I was only here one night - I could have happily stayed a month. I had room 3, which is at the end of a shady patio with a nice little swimming pool. The couch outside the room is a lovely place to sit with a beer...

A small B&B with rooms around a small pool. We couldn´t use the pool due to the weather but it gave the place a cozy atmosphere. Nice rooms, nothing special. If they remove the carpet in the room and had wooden floor it would be better.

We previously stayed here in 2014 and had enjoyed it so much that we returned again. We were made really welcome on arrival and soon settled in. The rooms are comfortable and it is nice having the small courtyard with the swimming pool. When we were on the early morning boat trip to see the whales the owners were accommodating...

When planning a trip to Hermanus (or nearby) and needing a place to stay, Balaeia is definitely one B and B to recommend. Set in a quiet residential neighborhood not far from the town center, Balaeia offers cozy comfort, safety and panache. The rooms are very spacious, beds are very comfortable and all furniture is well assigned with enough closet...

My girlfriend and I stayed here for the evening. It's a very nice B&B, the bathroom seemed spotless and the bedroom very neat and clean which is 1st prize for me. The location is spot on meaning it's very close to the center of Hermanus town which means it's walking distance to all the the best amenities.
