Birkenhead House

Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

With a private strip of beach and a pool that is almost in the sea, Birkenhead House brings you total luxury in a spectacular setting overlooking Voelklip Beach near the whale-mad town of Hermanus.

Rising from a rocky promontory, Birkenhead House is an unassumingly modern cream-coloured construction with classic lines and elegant interiors. Colonnades, French doors, massive windows, polished floors, Persian rugs, crystal chandeliers, antique artworks and furniture- with every closer look, the unassuming house turns into a regal mansion.

The 11 suites have been furnished with individual but similar old money elegance: crystal chandeliers, antique furniture and marble floors; the bathrooms are luxurious sanctuaries with twin vanities, sunken baths and plate-sized shower heads. Stand-out amenities include a fully stocked mini bar, home entertainment system, Molton Brown toiletries and Ralph Lauren linen.

You don't pay for a cup of coffee at home nor do you sign for your salmon croissant in the morning. Thus at Birkenhead, everything barring premium important drinks, is included in the price. It almost goes without saying that the quality of the food, wine list and service is excellent.

Facilities include a restaurant, lounge, bar and deck, spa treatments, a gym, a mini-theatre, a lounge with fireplace and card table and two swimming pools - the front one almost in the sea it's so close; the back pool is well sheltered from the natural sea breeze.

Room Facilities


For nature-lovers and food-lovers Hermanus has a good deal to offer: beautiful beaches, nature reserves, wine farms and restaurants. And of course, the cliff walk, metres from your hotel offers the finest land-based whale watching known with whales resident in the bay between July and November every year.
