Perched on top of the cliffs at Hermanus, The Marine has one of the southern hemisphere's most spectacular seascapes. The hotel has commanding views that extend across Walker Bay or over the beautiful internal courtyard, finely manicured gardens and the Overberg Mountains. The Marine offers guests the unique opportunity to experience the finest land-based whale watching in the world. From June to September guests are able to view these majestic creatures from the comfort of their beautiful sea view room.
The Marine offers 43 guest rooms including standard rooms, luxury rooms, suites and premier suites. World-class cuisine is served in the award-winning Seafood at the Marine and Pavillion at the Marine. Relax over afternoon tea or cocktails in The Orangery or Reading Room. There is also an on-site spa.
The Marine is approximately 1 hour's drive from Cape Town and the winelands and a 4 ½ hour drive from the Garden Route.
Cliff walks, whale watching from boat and the shore (in season Jun - Nov), golf, swimming in the sea (directly in front of the hotel is a tidal pool where you can swim as close to 100m away from the whales), relaxing on the beach and eating out.

Review of The Marine
Lovely hotel in a stunning location,lovely breakfasts. We don't normally eat in hotel restaurants in the evening, preferring to eat locally. Due to poor weather we dined in the hotel restaurant and it turned out to be one of our favourite meals during our stay in South Africa. Beautiful freshly prepared food, full of flavour and at a reasonable price.
