Birkenhead House

Tailored Just For You

Our personal travel specialists go above and beyond to give you the best luxury experience, and every holiday we create is tailored just for you by our experts.

‘Contemporary Beach House On a Cliff’

Perched atop a cliff overlooking Walker Bay, Birkenhead House offers 11 rooms across 3 different houses which make up the 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. For a few months a year, guests can enjoy views of the humpback whales and there are many activities to enjoy in Hermanus, including surfing, mussel picking and wine tasting.

In Our Opinion

‘Visit the spa, with its comprehensive menu of treatments. Most days you can enjoy your spa treatments outside with relaxing views of the sea.’
