The Marine Hotel

5* out of 5 stars

Perched atop a cliff on the spectacular Walker Bay, The Marine Hotel in Hermanus boasts one of the greatest views this side of South Africa. Moreover, you can see whales from June to September from your ocean-facing room.

But the unparalleled location is not the only virtue of this magnificent hotel built in 1902. With 42 beautifully appointed guestrooms and suites featuring individual decor, and a long list of luxury facilities that includes a heated salt water swimmingpool and a spa, The Marine Hotel is certainly not short of impressive details. The hotel's very own tidal pool is located right by the sea, a fantastic place where you can be swimming just a hundred metres away from the whales.

The Marine Hotel also has many dining alternatives and bars. In short, it has an option for everyone and a place for any occasion.

The Origin

Inspired by Mrs. McGrath's visit to the Harrods' seafood counter, Seafood at The Marine is a must-try whether you're staying at The Marine or just visiting Hermanus. Offering diners a contemporary and relaxed environment, with an emphasis on fresh fish, Seafood showcases a sustainable taste of the Walker Bay region.

The Pavilion

The Pavilion proffers views of the awe-inspiring Walker Bay. This view, complimented by the contemporary décor, adds an additional dimension to this unique dining experience.
