Birkenhead House

‘Contemporary Beach House On a Cliff’

Perched atop a cliff overlooking Walker Bay, Birkenhead House offers eleven rooms across the three different houses that make up this beautiful, five star, boutique hotel. Although each room features a balcony, they each feature a unique decor and a different position for varying views of the mountains or sea.
From July till November each year, guests can enjoy views of the humpback whales just metres from the shore.
There are many activities to enjoy in Hermanus, including whale watching, shark cage diving, golf, horse riding on the beach, hiking, surfing, mussel picking and wine tasting at one of the local wine estates.
