It accommodates guests in the utmost luxury and is the most exclusive hotel in Hermanus. That said relaxation is the order of the day with an easy going atmosphere where you can breakfast at noon, take tea on your balcony, then watch the ocean at dusk over a cocktail or two. Dinners are leisurely, staffs are friendly and knowledgeable.
