Full accommodation information

Perched high on the cliffs just outside Hermanus, this spectacular sea view property is named after a British troop ship that sank in Walker Bay in the 19th century, and is part of Liz Biden’s Royal Portfolio, together with Royal Malewane and La Residence.

All 11 suites are furnished with antiques, most have ocean views and one has a spectacular mountain view. From some of the suites you can watch the Southern Right Whales calving in season.

Set amongst the unique flora of the Cape and with direct access to two sandy beaches and spectacular mountain trails, Birkenhead House is also just a leisurely forty minutes stroll along a coastal path to the centre of the village.

A gym, spa and a two-tier pool give you the opportunity to work off some of the world-class cuisine of seafood delicacies and lavish specialities on offer at the hotel.
