Reviews for Baleens
A good place to stay in Hermanus when travelling on a budget. Their rooms are small but some have a glimpse of a sea view. The place is clean and well kept. Staff is friendly. Breakfast is ok.
good service,friendly stuff will be surely coming bck in future
Eveything is amazing just the mosquitos
Very homely. Breakfast enough to choose from. Staff accomodating and friendly. Our room.was downstairs and facing the rd . we were very uncomfortable with the very revealing curtain hanging on the sliding door.during the day no ccould see in, but at night when the lights were on .we had no privacy. We covered the windows. I would recommend the hotel as the price was better than i had at any place before and parking was available.
"Fantastic value for money"
Before booking at any establishment, I always read as many reviews as possible. Although there have been some really negative reviews about Baleens, I have seen many more positive reviews. The price was good so I booked and hoped for the best. I'm so glad that I did.From the moment we stepped through the door till the moment we left, everything was just perfect. A lovely fire was burning in the communal lounge area. All the staff we met throughout the weekend were so friendly and helpful. The decor throughout the hotel is lovely - beautiful furniture, bowls of unusual and beautiful works of art (decorated ostrich eggs, stunningly creative balls made from seed pods etc etc). The art on the walls was exquisite. The furniture in all public areas was homely and lovely.We had the most amazing room (18). It had a bath and shower, king size bed and a lovely roomy private balcony overlooking the sea and Hermanus lagoon. We could sea whales breaching from our balcony. Anything similar in Hermanus would easily cost 3 times more.The breakfast that is included in the price (R950 for two people per night!!!!!) was amazing. Eggs anyway you like them, a generous portion of bacon, fruit, yoghurt, cheese, juice, coffee, tea etc etcWhen we asked for extra towels - no problem.When we asked for a heater and hair dryer - no problem.I really do not understand how people can negatively review this Hotel. It is everything they advertise and more.It is close enough to the town centre without the noise and crowds that comes with that.A truly enjoyable weekend - we would love to come and stay for at least a week or more in the future.Well done guys.....we will definitely be back again and again.
Not a bad place to stay. Very cozy rooms with balcony with amazing views. I would recommend this place. Very friendly staff and an awesome welcoming. Thanks for the stay. The gent that helped us book out this morning was very friendly. As was the lady that booked us in well done.
