Birkenhead House

Republic of South Africa / Hermanus

The luxurious private hotel and the ultimate coastal retreat of Birkenhead House stands on Walker Bay, a true whale-watching paradise. It is only 90 minutes from Cape Town.

It was named after a British ship that sank in the bay in 1852. Birkenhead House stands high on the cliffs in Hermanus, between the mountains on one side and the sea on the other. Its elegant beach-house atmosphere reflects the beauty of its coastal setting.

The hotel offers guests 11 luxury rooms and a suite. All rooms are individually decorated with special attention to detail and their location in the hotel. The rooms feature expansive views of the bay, sea, or mountains. Two of Hermanus’ best beaches are below the house.

Guests can explore the rich floral kingdom with its unbelievably diverse species, enjoy a visit to a vineyard, try sea-fishing, play golf, go for a horse ride, bike ride in the countryside, or go whale, shark, or bird-watching.

In Birkenhead House you feel rejuvenated, with all the fresh air, good food and endless views of the ocean.

It has a gym, restaurant with award-winning chefs, 2 swimming pools, and 2 beautifully appointed treatment rooms.
