Excellent Accommodation

Lisburn, United Kingdom

We stayed two nights at this lovely guest house. Our room, beluga whale, was very clean and comfortable with a balcony, sun loungers and a wonderful sea view. Teresa the owner was very welcoming, with helpful advice. Breakfast was nice. Would highly recommend.

We have just returned from our trip travelling round South Africa. Les Baleines never fails to please. Lovely location, very bright room with nice view over to the sea,perfect. But best of all is the great service and friendliness of Natalie, the housekeeper. She is amazing. That was our 5th visit to Les Baleines and it never fails to please.we love everything about Hermanus! The town the beach ,the cliff walk all amazing. We definitely look forward to hopefully returning in the future.
