Whale-watch out your window at One Marine Drive

One Marine Drive Boutique Hotel is located on the seafront of Hermanus, within easy walking distance of the seaside town's exciting shops, art galleries, bars and restaurants, and the Cliff Path – which offers the best shore-based whale watching in the world.

Easy access is available for mountain hikes or gentle walks through the unique fynbos in the nature reserves, which have over 1600 different plant species. With birding being one of the fastest growing eco-tourist sectors in the world, Hermanus is a bird watcher's paradise – 111 recorded species are found in the diverse areas of fynbos, mountain, coastal, river, and estuarine habitats (all within a very small area of terrain). 

Luxurious, spacious, sea-facing rooms with private balconies, have wonderful sea views of Walker Bay and the surrounding coastline. Enjoy the sunshine on a comfortable lounger next to the heated swimming pool in the secluded courtyard garden. In the winter months, a log burning fire in the living area ensures comfort. A full homemade breakfast is served in the welcoming dining area, and the adjoining living room is the perfect place to relax with a cup of tea or a drink and enjoy the panoramic sea views.
