Hostess with the mostest

East Grinstead, United Kingdom

We stayed at Les Baleines for 3 Nights. We had a bit of a nightmare with the airline loosing our luggage but we where warmly welcomed by Teresa who had made us a reservation for dinner and booked us a whale watching trip for the morning. They where provisionally booked so we could cancel should we not want to go but we where pleased to have this aspect taken care of for us! Everything was organised and Teresa was a superb hostess! Our room was beautiful and the sea views from the library where stunning! A short drive from local shops and restaurants and the famous cliff path walk! The room was clean and nicely decorated! The breakfast provided was also lovely and I can’t recommend Les Baleines enough! If your stopping off in Hermanus then this Guest home makes the perfect home from home! Thank you Teresa x

Simply stunning!

Exeter, United Kingdom

We stayed at Les Baeines for 3 nights and it was superb! The decor and attention to detail is amazing, especially if you love whales! Our room had a private balcony and looked straight out across the bay, and we spent plenty of time just sitting here watching the whales! The breakfasts were delicious and beautifully presented, and everyone was very friendly and helpful. The property is on the outskirts of the town, so a car or taxi is required to get into the centre for the main hub of the restaurants, but once there, the choice is very good, or you can just stand on the cliffs and watch the whales.
