Very clean and comfortable. Nice walk to the centre (ca. 20 min.). We stayed here two nights and really enjoyed it. Good beds and lovely breakfast. Koos and Cecilia were very helpful. Quiet and beautiful neighbourhood.

Had a lovely stay at Hermanus Dorpshuys, clean, close to town, owners had good knowledge of surrounding area and went out of their way to advise on places to eat and visit. Great choice of breakfast, beautiful old house.

If we are in Hermanus then is the Hermanus Guesthouse a must. The welcoming, the breakfast, and the beatiful house really feels as holiday. As well as the joyfull and humouristic conversation of the hosts Koos and Cecilia. very fine is also there knowledge of the region and Hermanus and there helpfullness by booking all kinds of things.

We had a great time at Hermanus Dorpshuys. Our guests were lovely and very helpful. The place is quiet, spotless and very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent. I had specific dietary requirements and they arranged special products just for me. Would definitely stay there again!

Owners were extremely helpful and very friendly. Organised a whale trip for us, which was great. Breakfast was very good. Slight down side is that the rooms are looking a little tired and would benefit from a refresh, especially the bathroom. That said, I would not hesitate to recommend staying there.

Cecilia and Koos run a very smart operation here. The colonial feel to the establishment complements the exterior whilst the terrace and pool provide a more modern feel. The décor, and cleanliness are of the highest order with wonderful bedding and fresh towels provided. The location is very good, about a 10 minute walk to the coastal path and not... More

We were warmly welcomed into this lovely house by the fantastic hosts. We really enjoyed our time in Hermanus, which was made even better by the guidance and advice from Cecilia on where to explore and where to eat. The location is very safe and within walking distance of the centre of Hermanus and restaurants. Highly recommended.
