In a convenient place for access to Hermanus town, and with views out over the ocean this was great place to stay. The rooms were pleasant, airy and light - and like the rest of the hotel, clean and well kept. The staff very friendly & helpful.

Nicely old fashioned.
We stayed for two nights. Lovely old fashioned Hotel. Great views of the rugged coast from the front of the building. We stayed in the back of the hotel but I wish I had paid the extra to have ocean views. Very nice buffet style breakfast and good staff.

Fair 4.0
Didn’t like the stay
The only good thing I have to say about the hotel is the location. Didn’t like the staff, they were not kind or helpful. The hotel is very old, doesn’t have a good smell. No elevator. Would not book this hotel if I would have known the condition of the hotel.

A lovely spot
The Windsor Hotel is a marvelous place to stay in Hermanus, right on the waterfront. Our room was spacious and spotlessly clean, and the hotel itself was elegant and serene.
Donna, us2 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
This hotel is located right on the water with a beautiful view. The hotel room was clean, bed was comfortable, hotel was easy to find with parking in the rear, breakfast was good, and the staff was GREAT. Walking distance to restaurants and a walkway along the water. Laundry was expensive so we opted out of doing that. I would recommend this hotel.
