About Windsor Hotel Hermanus

If you're looking for Hermanus accommodation, you won't find a location as picturesque as this. The Windsor Hotel is situated on a cliff edge with spectacular panoramic views of the Indian Ocean below, visible from almost all its rooms. This Hermanus hotel is perfect for a relaxing seaside holiday break, and the frolicking whales in the Indian Ocean will add to your enjoyment.

Windsor Hotel has a 3 Star rating and was built in 1896 - making it the oldest accommodation in Hermanus. Of all the Hermanus hotels to be built since then, the Windsor has remained a popular holiday option. Since it was taken over by Garth and Etricia Clark-Brown, many exciting changes and renovations have taken place.

Hermanus offers some of the best land-based whale watching in the world. This is because its waters are the breeding ground and nursery of the famous Southern Right whale. September's whale breeding season sets the scene for the vibey and popular Hermanus whale festival. With its mild Mediterranean climate and safe, clean, sandy beaches, Hermanus is popular all year round.

Although primarily known for the spectacular whale watching opportunities, Hermanus offers a treasure trove of holiday activities to choose from. The attractions are diverse and range from adventure activities to golfing and beach-combing, all of which you can explore from the Windsor Hotel.

          I had the most amazing experience at Hermanus Windsor Hotel. Staff were most friendly and very eager to assist with any requests. The hotel itself is beautiful and spotless. The view from the room is amazing. I even managed to see a few whales. I would recommend the Windsor to anybody. I intend going back in the future.

          for the price a guest house would have been nicer. The hotel needs new and updated linen and mattresses, they are old and worn. The whole place is just dated. The only plus is the view.

          The great position of the Windsor in Hermanus, the friendly and helpful staff and the accessibility to the sights and restaurants of Hermanus made our two night break a memorable one, even out of whale season!
