Birkenhead House

Erstes Haus an der Walküste von Hermanus.

A scenic 90 minute drive from Cape Town brings you to Birkenhead House in the picturesque seaside town of Hermanus on South Africa’s Cape Coast. With its superb unspoilt surroundings and natural beauty, Birkenhead House is also the perfect location for spectacular sightings of the Southern Right Whale.

Birkenhead House sets the standard for luxury hotels in Hermanus. With its exhilarating cliff-top position overlooking the whale watching paradise of Walker Bay, Birkenhead House provides luxury accommodation for those seeking an extraordinary coastal experience. Watch surfers carving through the waves and, for several months each year, witness Southern Right and Humpback Whales breaching just metres from the shore.

 

The hotel’s contemporary décor is an artful mix of beach-house and quirky opulence. The all-inclusive rate means that guests never need to leave the comfort of Birkenhead House, where all meals and drinks are included.

The 11 rooms at Birkenhead House are individually decorated by the stylish wand of owner Liz Biden. The rooms are located in three different houses which make up Birkenhead House. Please note that while we will do our best to accommodate your room preference we can only guarantee a room category and not a specific room.

This Hermanus spa offers two treatment rooms and a comprehensive menu to choose from. Delivered by a network of highly qualified therapists, the wide range of therapies include body exfoliations, massages, body wraps, as well as beauty and grooming treatments. When the weather is fine, massages and other spa treatments can also be enjoyed in the open air, overlooking the ocean.
