        A smashing stay!”

        We needed a couple of days by the sea in these troubling Covid times, and chose a special deal on the Agoda website for The Marine, Hermanus. Staff were wonderful and very friendly and Heidi found us a special ground floor room as my husband has difficulty with stairs. Nothing was too much trouble. With that; good weather and excellent service and food, we left refreshed and thoroughly enjoyed it!

        An Environmental, Culinary & Relaxing Delight ”

        Its position on the headland with an unfettered view across Walker Bay. Very classy, top level hotel with impeccable service
        None

        The hotel is a few minutes walk from the shops, village and shoreline. The villages around Walker Bay and nearby vineyards are within an hour by car. The Marine is tranquil and quiet, allowing a complete break away from it all. The rooms, particularly those with a view on the Bay, are excellent, well furnished with extremely comfortable beds. The two restaurants are top quality and menus are varied and well priced. The range of wines is vast with many from the locality. Pre-dinner drinks can be taken in the lounge bar, looking out across the Bay. The staff, at all levels, are happy to interact with Guests in an interesting way and can give plenty of advice on anything in the region. This was our third stay and we will stay at the Marine on future visits.

        Impeccable service and friendliness”

        I would recommend this hotel to the seasoned traveler who appreciates extreme attention to detail, friendliness and impeccable five star quality. We celebrated a 40th birthday here and it will forever remain a fond memory. The staff are extremely professional and well-trained. The cleanliness is top notch and the views, silence and relaxing ambience makes it a wonderful hotel. Thank you to Taahir, Conrad, Melissa, Heidi, Nico, and Florence for making us feel so special and welcome. We will return! Conrad your kindness and professionalism is greatly appreciated!

        Idyllic escape with supreme service ”

        From the moment we arrived, the service from staff was attentive and friendly. The location is central and right on the cliff paths, perfect for stellar views and watching whales during whale season. The room was well appointed, the restaurant was fantastic, breakfast was great with a wide selection but the staff service was next level and will be the factor that brings me back to this hotel in future.

        Service falls short”

        We have a soft spot for The Marine and I'm not sure why. Make sure you tell them you a repeat guest as the system did not pick this up through our Agoda booking. It is very expensive ie London prices but the service is very patchy. Everyone tries hard but there are too many occasions when things go wrong, usually I think because of language problems. Our breakfast order was wrong twice and only rectified on the third time by a Manager intervening. The bar staff do not SEE customers waiting for service. A chicken mayo sandwich came with bacon, the second time came with a fried egg. Rooms are very variable so if you're a repeat guest staying for several nights you might be disappointed, as we were, to be given a very small room. The new restaurant is good, better than we expected.
