restaurant was decent...not to die for, but the hotel was great. Wonderful balconies to overlook the ocean and easy to get around from the location. Price point was decent and the service was friendly with a hint of country charm.

My wife and i spent one night in a romantic room/suite and it was perfect. From the check in, to the drinks by the pool, peaceful night and delicious breakfast. We celebrated our anniversary and received a complementary bottle of wine. The room was neat and very comfortable.

We were really impressed with the hotel. We arrived a little early in a rainstorm and were warmly greeted by the front staff and shown where to park our car. The room was beautifully appointed with a view of the ocean to the front and side. We were lucky enough to get one of the penthouse rooms. The rooms are...

Me and my girlfriend stayed at the Harbour house hotel, we didn't have a reservation, but was helped by friendly staff at the reception. The room was really elegant and comfortable with the most amazing view on the old harbour, sea, coast and town. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. However with such an incredible location, and constant supply of patrons,...

Had a wonderful stay at this hotel for a few days. Our room was sea facing with a small balcony, very comfortable bed, lovely size room and a fabulous open plan bathroom with a huge bath and open shower - just loved this room. Staff were friendly especially one guy who was absolutely superb (Thokazwile - spelling?). The swimming pool...

We stayed one night at this hotel- excellent room on the first floor at the front.Only criticism was the poor quality pillows and the fact that you had to pay extra for WiFi (no other hotel in this price range does charge). Underground parking too. We went over to the Burgundy Restaurant for dinner- excellent.

This is definitely worth a visit. The Hotel is small and cosy with all the normal benefits of a bigger hotel. The room was clean and nice. There was no aircon unit in our room. Only a loose standing fan. The breakfast is also good. Parking is also catered for by using facilities next door that is secure.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated in the heart of the historical village, Harbour House Hotel has been modelled after its original architecture, a thatched roof seaside manor house built in 1920. Being perfectly located above the Old Harbour, the hotel's understated luxury is offset by the soothing surrounds of the ocean. The magnificent Lookout Terrace invites guests to relax around the infinity pool overlooking the ocean and savour a sundowner from the pool bar in the Pavilion. Harbour House Hotel consists of the restored Manor House with intimate Romantic Rooms, all with views, as well as the New Wing with 18 spacious suites, featuring sophisticated modern decor, a kitchenette and lounge leading out onto a private balcony. Guests are afforded luxury at every turn, from 100% fine white cotton bedding to marble and granite finishes. Sleek lines and carefully curated art pieces add to the modern aesthetic of each room. ... more   less
