The Harbour House Hotel’s crowning glory, and arguably the most enjoyable whale watching site, is the magnificent 18 x 4 metre infinity pool. Just a stone's throw away from the sea, the pool enjoys prime position at the front of the hotel, offering uninterrupted views of the sea through glass wall surrounds and modern, sophisticated finishes.

Guests staying in Harbour Square rooms have access to the infinity pool, as well as the roof deck pool at Harbour Square.

Lookout Terrace

The magnificent Lookout Terrace is arguably the best spot in Hermanus to enjoy whale watching. Guests are invited to sit and enjoy sundowners and cocktail snacks with sweeping views of Walker Bay.

Bicycle rentals
