The Windsor Hotel

The independently owned Windsor Hotel and Self-Catering Apartments stand proudly on the edge of Hermanus’s breathtaking Walker Bay with a panoramic vista featuring the world’s best whale-watching available in most rooms.

Southern Right whales have been breeding and feeding here for centuries (July – November) and our guests have been returning, generation after generation, to delight in this spectacle.

The 120-year-old Windsor, near the town centre and its rich variety of restaurants, galleries and shops, has been modernised but steadfastly retains its family atmosphere with home-from-home hospitality.

A stunning 120km drive from Cape Town brings you to the famous champagne air of Hermanus, where you can relax in comfort at the venerable Windsor or enjoy a wide variety of gentle or adventurous activities.

"The photo that comes up on the google site does it no justice. The best location in Hermanus."
