About Ocean's Eleven Guest House Hotel

Ocean Eleven Guest House is an Old World, Cape Cod, Colonial-style guest house hotel, situated on the famous cliffs of Hermanus. The picturesque mountains beyond gently embrace the phenomenal, all encompassing vista of the bay. The main house of Ocean Eleven was built with all the high ceilings, tall windows and teak floors that made Colonial architecture so utterly elegant.

All these features - and thus the grace and style - have been retained to this day. Ocean's Eleven Guest House boasts ten beautifully appointed rooms - three standard, five deluxe and two suites. Every bedroom has an all-embracing sea view over Walker Bay.
