★ ★ ★ ★ ★

The Birkenhead House Hermanus is an award-winning seaside hotel that is renowned for its fantastic location, superior service, and excellent dining

The Birkenhead Hermanus is within two hours drive of Cape Town, and activities and attractions are abundant in the area to enjoy.

Accommodation is in 11 suites, each individually decorated with beautiful artworks and furnishings. The suites each enjoy magnificent views of either Walker Bay or the towering Kleinrivier mountain range backdrop. An establishment devoted to the refinement of comfort and relaxation.

The lounge chairs overlooking the magnificent ocean and bay invite for relaxing afternoons in the warm, African sunshine while the outdoor swimming pool invites for a refreshing dip.

Birkenhead hotel guests staying have the opportunity to enjoy rejuvenating health and beauty treatments in the luxurious spa.

The Health and Beauty Spa at the House is a tantalising oasis of relaxation and wellness offering a medley of treatments including massage, aromatherapy and reflexology. The two quiet treatment rooms are under the caring hands of qualified therapists. For those who wish to exert themselves, a fully-equipped fitness centre is at the disposal of guests.

The town is particularly famous for the annual congregation of Whales that visit these waters during their breeding migration. What sets the town apart in this regard, is the excellent viewing from the craggy cliffs around Birkenhead bay where one can experience the sheer majesty of the whales literally at your feet.
