Accommodation in Hermanus

Birkenhead House

There’s a healthy imagination at work in the design of this eclectic property, with huge decorated mirrors, plush oversized furnishings and fabulous chandeliers in the public spaces. A couple of the rooms have great balconies and though the hotel has a couple of pools, the ocean is right outside.

Families are well catered for in the adjacent villa, with another pool, easy access to the beach, glorious views, a communal TV room, and simply divine meals, with an all-inclusive plan. From May to November you just have to look out your window to witness a Southern Right Whale, possibly with calf in tow – a spellbinding sight.

Or you can take a stunning walk along the cliffs into Hermanus, about 3 miles (5 kms) and Birkenhead staff will come and pick you up to bring you home. Soothing spa treatments are available at the hotel, as is a simple gym.
