Perched high on the cliffs of Hermanus, the truly wonderful Birkenhead House offers a sophisticated, intimate 'house party-style' atmosphere and attentive, friendly staff. It also boasts an incredible bird’s-eye-view of one of the world's most famous whale-watching locations, Walker Bay, which is home to Southern Right Whales from May to December – watch them from the hotel's lovely clifftop, infinity-edge plunge pool, the expansive terrace, most of the eleven luxurious guest bedrooms and through the expansive floor-to-ceiling windows in the splendid lounge. The world-class cuisine served in the stylish dining room is sublime – combining Cape seafood, the freshest ingredients and African, French, Italian and Asian flavours – while guests who enjoy pampering will relish the thought of a relaxing treatment in one of the two treatment rooms. Beyond the hotel, nature-lovers will relish the local reserves, coastal walks and fabulous swathes of beach, while for gourmands, there are four amazing vineyards nearby, whose award-winning wines include one of the world's top ten Chardonnays.
