Stayed here for only one night but wish we could have stayed longer. I felt like I was living in luxury. Huge apartment with 3 bedrooms, 2 doubles and a single. Plenty of space and another well equipped kitchen although we ate out. Every room has its own bathroom/shower room. If staying here there is plenty balcony space for BBQ...

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment for 10 nights. These well appointed and attractive apartments are being ruined by poor maintenance and housekeeping. On entering the apartment there was an unpleasant smell, I can only describe it as "wet dog". There was jam stuck to the wall in the dining area and sticky fingermarks on the table. In the...

Our group of two couples spent three nights in a 2-bedroom unit here -- these apartments are good value and located ideally in the town centre, minutes on foot from everything. They are modern and spacious, well appointed and offer everything needed for a short self-catering stay. Both bedrooms bright and airy, direct access to a balcony. Kitchen was perfectly...

When you think of Hermanus - you think sea views. This hotel does not have sea views. We had booked into the hotel as the place where we normally stay with sea views was full. But don't get me wrong - the hotel is stunning. As many have mentioned its very close to 2 supermarkets- a Checkers and a Woolworths...

We arrived Hermanus for 1 night and spent it in Marine Square apartments. The apartment was very nice. Big enough with one bedroom for the children, living room, kitchen and upstairs room for the parents. It was a bit cold on that day and an air conditioning for t he whole apartment would have been better but still it didn't...

Marine Square Luxury Apartments are all they are cracked up to be. I had a one bedroom which was very comfortable indeed. Only drawback for me was a steep staircase to the bedroom and bathroom, which was cold and hard to the feet and not conducive to easy access as I had had a recent operation on my foot. Bathroom...

The self-catering suites at Marine Square are well appointed, comfortable and close to the cliff walk in Hermanus. The luxury finishings are well selected and comfortable. The close proximity to Woolworths makes food and self catering very easy and relatively inexpensive. Close enough to the cliff walk and town centre to make enjoying the views and vistas very easy.

Well equipped and priced self catering Hotel. Spacious rooms , clean and well decorated. Close to main restaurants and shops in Hermanus, not a charming location though. We stayed in the 3 bedrooms unit (they have 1,2 and 3 bedroom suites.
