We loved the place. The room are nice and confortable but the top point is the service. The stuff of the hotel spoils the clients in many ways...we definetely missed that treatment in all the other hotels where we have been. I highly recommend this place!

During our travel from cape-town to Johannesburg this was our stop in Hermanus. Beautiful guesthouse with the hostess arranging the trips we wanted to do there right at the start. Beautiful guesthouse and beautiful people working there. Would recommend.

It also has the bonus of being within walking distance to the Main Street...
