The Marine Hermanus in Hermanus
Following the purchase of the Marine by David Rawdon in the early 1980's and four years of painstaking renovation, thirteen years of successful management ensued.
However a new custodian was required to take this grand old lady into the new millennium. Liz McGrath became the new owner of The Marine Hotel in March 1998 and so began the complete makeover of this historic hotel.
As with the sister properties of The Collection, namely The Cellars-Hohenort and The Plettenberg, The world-class quality that has become the hallmark of Liz McGrath was injected into The Marine. This was achieved by using exceptionally talented designers to ensure the highest standards of style, elegance, and comfort in both the bedrooms and the public areas of the hotel.
After a concerted nine month restoration period, The Marine reopened in October 1998 as a 5 Star hotel. This grand old lady has never looked so glamorous - a fitting tribute to those who built The Marine a century ago - but now possesses all the amenities a modern sojourner could wish for.
The Marine offers 40 individually decorated bedrooms and suites, each with its own private facilities. Commanding views extend across Walker Bay or over the beautiful internal courtyard, finely manicured gardens, and The Overberg Mountains.

Reviews for The Marine Hermanus
It's an amazing place ... but they tried to stick me with a tiny room with no sit out while others in my group got really nice rooms :-( ...not a nice way to start what could be an amazing trip. This is an outstanding location ... saw a dozen whales on an evening walk.
Wonderful up market restaurant by the seaside. I really enjoy their meals
Wonderful food. A tottaly amazing experience. Would definitely suggest the Marine for a holiday getaway.
Amazing and romantic, the beach view is wonderful, more than 100 year hotel, quite and cosy my wife fell in love with it, recommend for honeymooners
One of the most beautiful hotels our family has stayed. A beautiful pool area, STUNNING room with plenty of space for a child and a lovely lounge area. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The pool was heated and made our stay all the better as despite the cooling temps, we were able to swim twice a day!
Outstandingly understated with 5star luxury and friendly experienced staff.Unique sea views.Great winter food specials.Secure parking.
We went to celebrate my husband's birthday with his parents, a little sad that we couldn't get a reservation at our usual place. We were in for a memorable evening. Really attentive waiters and excellence service from Theo. Everything was tasty, from the two starters I had as a main to the sirlion steak (which hubby said was the best he ever had) to the delectable desserts. This kind of experience is what one expects on a special night out - and we were suitably impressed! Will be back again!
Stunning hotel and beautiful views. Always visit when we are in that town.
An older and traditional style of hotel. Excellent level of service and equally excellent location.
Fabulous location and very friendly staff. The food is also wonderful!!
The place we wish to get back. Lovely and cozy full of charm and beauty. Large rooms full of light facing the ocean, large fernkloof territory animated by climbing turtles and jumping dassi. We were lucky to see the hunt of dolphins and large group od whales.Dont miss The Origins, the restaurant deserves its own review
The Marine is a beautiful hotel located 100m from the cafe's and restaurants in Hermanus. The hotel restaurant is great (the food better than I expected), the staff are lovely and we were able to watch whales just off shore from our hotel window (a very lucky sight to see indeed). Hermanus is a fabulous/relaxing place to vacation and and if you're looking for a 5 star hotel that's right amongst it all then The Marine Hermanus is for you.
