Birkenhead House

Discover Birkenhead House

The regal Birkenhead House is perched on the cliffs of Hermanus, overlooking the whale watchers' paradise of Walker Bay. It is the most exclusive hotel in Hermanus.

With a decor that is an artful mix of beach-house and quirky opulence, the 11 rooms, with either sea or mountain views offer balconies, underfloor heating and huge bathtubs. The Birkenhead House spa is designed to relax the senses as is the fully equipped gym and swimming pool. Just a few steps away from the hotel and overlooked by the terrace is Voelklip beach and Kamma Bay, two of Hermanus' finest beaches.
