Baleens is situated one road from the beach in Voelklip, Hermanus and is an easy walk to the beautiful Blue Flag Grotto Beach, the beach stretches for more than 20 kilometers.
The Hermanus lagoon meets the sea in front of the hotel and the birdlife is spectacular. Behind the hotel rise the majestic Klein River Mountains and the Fernkloof Nature Reserve.
We offer the ideal spot to relax in a casual but comfortable atmosphere. Baleens has recently achieved a three star grading making it one of the best value for money Guesthouses in town.
Baleens Hotel enjoys a fabulous location within sight of the beach and the Klein Riviersvlei lagoon. Leave your shoes in the room and go down to the beach (only 90 meters away) to marvel at the birdlife living in the river mouth.
