The Marine

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.

Review of The Marine

John Best

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.
