Reviews for Birkenhead House
Probably the best address in Hermanus. The setting is spectacular and one can watch the wales right from the restaurant/pool terrace. The rooms are spacious and luxurious and the food is delicious. For lunch they do a tapas selection. The staff is friendly and professional and will go out of their way to accommodate you.
Pricey, but the service is incredible. I highly recommend it if you want to visit Hermanus.
Lovely spot with great views. Friendly service. Can recommend the spa.
Had family staying there and joined them for lunches and dinner. Food was more than excellent and the service was outstanding. Recommended without hesitation.
I have found my paradise on earth. Birkenhead House is truly an amazing boutique hotel to stay. With only 11 rooms and all styled in a unique way around different themes, from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave you will feel incredibly special.I recommend the full board option if you are staying here, there is nothing that isn't included. Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner all exceptional and the location of the infinity pool will have you wishing you'd booked more nights. We sat and watched wales only 100m from shore with a morning mimosa. Something we will never forget. A very romantic and memorable stay as part of our honeymoon indeed. I can't wait to return to this heaven hotel in Hermanus!!
Wow what a great treat. A real hidden gem in hermanua.You have to try Chef Oliver's 5 stars prepared food...ask for his d3ath by chocolate dessert, not on their menu but if you tell him JP sent you he will whip it up just for you. Enjoy
Amazing location, right on the rocks, views of the ocean and whales. The breakfast though lacked in variety.
Just beautiful. Position perfect. Service exemplary.
The staff are extremely friendly and the reception entices one to stay at the house and forget about exploring Hermanus. Everything you could possibly need or want is provided. The views are breathtaking - lie in the swimming pool and look out over the ocean and stunning beach. This is a place to forget about your travels. Thanks for the great stay!
