Enjoy a leisurely breakfast at noon, enjoy a cocktail at dusk and watch whales migrate in the ocean below. Birkenhead House can offer this, and much more. Set on a Hermanus cliff overlooking Walker Bay, this contemporary, quirky hotel is a wonderful spot to unwind.
The hotel mixes a classic beach house ambience with eclectic artwork and furnishings. The pace of life here is utterly laid back with friendly service, leisurely meals and all-around luxury.
The rooms offer unrivalled modern comfort. The pale soft colours inspire tranquillity, while the bold colours of the art provide a touch of vibrant personality. Enjoy stunning views of Walker Bay or the Kleinrivier mountain range, admire the zebra-print fabrics, shell-framed mirrors and silk love couches.
The award-winning cuisine is as fabulous as the décor. Dine in the glass-fronted restaurant or in your suite, and enjoy breakfast on the terrace.
Between May and December spotting a whale is almost guaranteed, while stunning beaches, coastal walks, diving, boat-charters, horse-riding and penguin spotting are all available close by. For a more leisurely day, indulge in the sumptuous spa.
