From its exhilarating cliff-top position overlooking the whale watching paradise of Walker Bay, Birkenhead House offers the perfect Hermanus luxury accommodation for those seeking a superior seaside experience. The hotel’s contemporary feel is an artful mix of classic beach house style and quirky opulence, and furnishings and artwork are arresting and eclectic. While Birkenhead House is Hermanus luxury accommodation at its best, the hotel is characterised by a relaxed and easygoing atmosphere where you can breakfast at noon, take tea on your balcony, then watch the ocean at dusk over a cocktail or two. Dinners are leisurely, staffs are friendly and knowledgeable, the pace is laidback. Relaxation is the order of the day.
The Birkenhead House & Villa properties are adjacent to each other on the magnificent seaside cliffs above Hermanus’ most prominent beaches. Sophisticatedly appointed studio suites offer expansive vistas of Walker Bay or the towering Overberg mountains, all augmented by the unrestrained opulence of our beautiful furnishings and comforts.
