Stay at Birkenhead House

With its unbeatable cliff-top position overlooking the famous whale watching paradise of Walker Bay, Birkenhead House offers the perfect luxury Hermanus hotel accommodation for those seeking an unforgettable seaside experience. From its extraordinary viewpoint, observe surfers cutting through the waves, and for several months each year, witness Southern Right Whales breaching just metres from the shore.

Incredibly, what lies within Birkenhead House is as breath-taking as what lies beyond. The hotel’s contemporary decor is an artful mix of classic beach house style and quirky

luxury. What’s more, the furnishing and artwork is eclectic and arresting. While Birkenhead House is Hermanus luxury accommodation at its finest, the hotel is characterised by a laid back and easy-going atmosphere. Following a relaxed breakfast at noon, have afternoon tea on your balcony, then gaze over the ocean at sunset over a cocktail or two. Dinners are leisurely, staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and the pace is comfortable. Alternatively, cool down in the infinity pool, which runs down the centre of Birkenhead House and looks out towards the sea.

Missy & Harry

Absolutely amazing holiday. Garonga is heaven! We did everything possible and our guide was brilliant and hilarious. I can definitely recommend True Travel for their excellent advice and professionalism – they clearly are very knowledgeable about where they send their clients and made sure we had a worry-free holiday that perfectly suited us. We were particular grateful for the collection off our flight and help onto our transfer in Johannesburg, which included a very nifty queue jump due to their reputation!
