Harbour House Hotel

Situated in the heart of the historical village, Harbour House Hotel has been modelled after its original architecture, a thatched roof seaside manor house built in 1920. Being perfectly located above the Old Harbour, the hotel’s understated luxury is offset by the soothing surrounds of the ocean. The magnificent Lookout Terrace invites guests to relax around the infinity pool overlooking the ocean and savour a sundowner from the pool bar in the Pavilion.
Rooms are luxuriously appointed, with sophisticated modern décor and breathtaking views, all within easy walking distance of the town’s top attractions, whale watching sites, markets, restaurants, street cafés and an abundance of reserved natural splendour.


Located on the lower level at the rear of the hotel, these rooms offer peace and quiet and feature all the modern finishes of the New Wing.


These rooms are located in the New Wing with its sophisticated modern décor and features, offering partial ocean views from the lower levels of the hotel.


These rooms offer panoramic views of Walker Bay and the ocean from the front of the New Wing and the penthouse floor at the rear.

Located in the restored Manor House, these lavish, open-plan rooms are accentuated by stylish décor and quality finishes. Millstone floors, walk-in showers and lavish freestanding solid-cast baths accentuate the feeling of comfort and luxury.
