Hermanus, Overberg - Accommodation

Fisherhaven Travellers Lodge rating


Upon hearing the name Fisherhaven Travellers Lodge one may come to the conclusion that the accommodation in Hermanus is a stopover for the lone traveller or the driver who is fatigued from long hours behind the wheel. That could be somewhat true but the Hermanus lodge offers the traveller more than a peaceful night's rests but the whole 9 yards including a solar heated pool and sauna just to brag. A mere 45 minute drive from Somerset West, along the iconic Hottentots Mountain transports you to the rural Hermanus, a town known for its whale watching. In that very town, the charismatic yet coy Fisherhaven Lodge sits on the edge of the Bot River Lagoon, a 120 km East of Cape Town's main centres.

The ultimate pit stop for backpackers

Fisherhaven is a dream come true for backpackers, with large dormitory rooms with comfortable bunk beds that sleep up to 12 people. Adding to the comfortable homely stay is the fully equipped and fully accessorised guest kitchen with its own stove, fridge, microwave, cutlery and large dining table. For a more moderate family there are also family rooms and all rooms have en-suite bathrooms.

A shaded garden area is perched by the pool and the sun downer deck showcases an oceanic view and a nearby mountain range. This Hermanus backpacker is at the cusp of a lagoon that is a runway for birds to strut and with many activities, the Fisherhaven guest won't have time to remember where the DSTV remote is since nearby whale watching, shark cage diving, absailing, paragliding and scuba diving will steal the slow days away.
