We stayed in Misty Waves Hotel for 3 nights and loved everything about it. The restaurant has spectacular views over the bay and we saw Whales swimming out in the bay. We would recommend a stay in this hotel and also to try the private Jacuzzi for a half hour session is very worth it. We would stay again if we ever go back. United Kingdom
Mr Morule

I booked online for an Annex room which was easy to do with no hassles.

My wife and I arrived in the most atrocious conditions, howling wind & driving rain, and much to our delight we were put in the main hotel wing at no extra charge, and saved us from getting very wet.

The check-in was friendly & efficient.

With the wind still howling and enormous waves, there was a knock on our door at around 18:00, and there was a waiter delivering soup. On being told that we had not ordered any, the reply was "management thought you may enjoy the soup as it was so miserable and cold outside". What a nice touch!

Needless to say we ate in the Hotel, and had a most enjoyable meal and very interesting discussion with one of the owner’s sons Dillon. What a character he is! A great advert for the hotel.

Breakfast was brilliant with a huge variety of food available from a buffet.

We did the touristy thing on Sunday: Napier, Bredarsdorp, Arniston Hotel for lunch, Birkenhead Bewery and Wine estate and back for a rest!

We stayed for the two nights booked and would have stayed longer if we had not had another booking in Bantry Bay.

The staff were wonderful, friendly and efficient, and we will definitely stay at Misty Waves again, a great Boutique Hotel.

Only stayed for one night to break up a long drive. Found the hotel to be very welcoming and our family room very comfortable for 2 adults and 2 children. Staff were very helpful and pleasant and recommended an excellent restaurant for dinner (Fabio's). Kids loved the swimming pool and we enjoyed the view from the restaurant over breakfast. Short walk to the town centre. Decor a little dated perhaps, but definitely would not stop us returning. Sorry we could only stay the one night - we will be back, hopefully when the whales are in the

We enjoyed a pleasant 4 night stay at Misty Waves Boutique Hotel. The staff were great and most helpful with tips on where to eat and what to do. The rooms were more than comfortable with loads of room. We felt pampered, having our beds turned back every night. We also received a welcome chocolate fondue on arrival. We ate in the hotel one night and had an excellent meal and the breakfasts were also good. The hotel is well furnished and very comfortable. I think it has recently been refurbished because everything looks new. Overall we had a very pleasant stay. South Africa

The reception area/breakfast room is lovely and decorated in quite a funky way. Our room was fantastic with a balcony overlooking the sea and whales on full view. We were treated to a chocolate fondue with marshmallows in the room, a spa bath decorated with rose petals and candles and within minutes of settling in, champagne was brought to the room. Overall - excellent service, lovely setting, only a few minutes walk from the main shops and restaurants and perfect for whale watching. United Kingdom

Lester Naidoo
A haven of friendly staff and kindness that will make you feel like staying another night or two! My stay at the Misty Waves Boutique Hotel not only recharged my body and mind, but also helped me get back in touch with my best friend, my wife. My stay at Misty Waves felt too short in a place where time stands still.... Thank you to everyone at Misty Waves. South Africa
It was for us a marvellous, beautiful place to stay and for visiting the country.
To feel the Indian Ocean, and to have a rest at your pool drinking a glass of white wine of your delicious South Africa vineyard. In the evening we have had the pleasure to enjoy your lovely restaurant with tasteful meal.
The room was beautiful and lovely.
All the staff was full of kindness and very style, always ready to help us if we need.
Thank you for all, we don't forget the "Misty Waves Hotel" for a future travel in South Africa.
Mr Freeman
A warm welocme - we loved the 'goody' tray. A lovely spacious room with a great sea view just a few steps from the beach. The delightful restaurant with fabulous food provides a good end to the day in this lovely resort. We hope to return one day at the right time for the whales. United Kingdom
Mr Jackson

Hoped to see some Whales but late December is the wrong time, nevetheless had a relaxing stay at this lovely spot. Lots of lovely beaches, vineyards, restaurants around. The hotel has a small swimming pool which was most welcome during the very hot days. The staff are wonderful and great with the children. Very helpful throughout our stay. Evening meal slightly disappointing. United Kingdom
Mr Tennant
Nice hotel, if you want to see the sea easily I'd recommend a 1st floor room. Service very nice and friendly. Their restaurant was fantastic, good value and great food. United Kingdom
Mr Strachan
We enjoyed our stay very much. One night was definitely too short to enjoy the facilities. Very well situated and a helpful staff. It might help to warn guests beforehand if they want to book a table in the restaurant - we missed out! United Kingdom

Mr Crouse
Our Stay at the Misty Hotel was a nice haven after having traveled through cold and rainy weather and arriving to a warm fire place in the reception area was a nice welcome. The reception and service was nothing but spectacular with staff always having been courteous and friendly. The food was to say the least divine and Major, who seemed to be always around, had some good suggestions which I generally followed ensuring that I had a good stay.

The Misty Hotel definitely deserves its reputation and I can wholeheartedly endorse their 4 star rating.

Grant Fourie
Misty Waves is a lovely place with great sea views and friendly staff, that make you feel like you are the only guest. Their breakfasts were fantastic, and we were never left hungry. Leaving Misty Waves front door and you are on a lovely trail over the cliffs, with breathtaking scenery and lots of small rock pools and the occasional “dassie”. ( What a fantastic long weekend. South Africa
Ms Matthysen/Brizzolari
We only had the pleasure for a very short stay passing through Hermanus as part of our honeymoon road trip. On arrival we were received warmly and felt truly welcome.

The rooms are exquisitely decorated, both spectacular and homely at the same time. The restaurant is intimate and the food delectable, and then there is the views which are simply breathtaking.

The meticulous trouble the staff went through to ensure our stay was comfortable was greatly appreciated. They went beyond expectation providing us with complementary champaign, chocolate fondue and a myriad of small things that truly made this stop the highlight of our honeymoon.

We look forward to the next time we can stay over in this truly spectacular facility, with the views to match and truly superb staff
that make you feel like royalty. This was a truly memorable
South Africa
Mr Giordano
The setting was very romantic. We could see the water from our room. The service was Excellant. We would stay here again. The staff to management was perfect. The only problem was we needed to stay longer.
Thank you
