Birkenhead House is perched on the cliffs between two of the best beaches in the area.

Once immersed in the atmosphere of this stylish boutique hotel, you feel utterly carefree and allow yourself to enjoy the pleasure of whatever your South Africa adventure may bring. 

Just as the décor combines modern with antique in a successful eclectic mix, so the staff carry off relaxed yet exemplary service. Ten of the 11 individually decorated suites are sea-facing and eight have one or more balconies.

Facilities include a spa offering a wide range of treatments, a two-tier swimming pool and a gym. Allow at least two nights to enjoy world-class cuisine, including seafood delicacies, superb local wines, the beach and an 8-km cliff path walk to Hermanus.
