Schulphoek in Sandbaai, Hermanus is a hidden gem! From the warm welcome from the manageress Petro, to the ever-present Elias, always on hand and helpful, you will feel at home the minute you drive through the gate. The views are spectacular, it is right on the sea and close to a beautiful cliff path for those that like a brisk...

Owners are a very nice couple who give good advice of activities in the region, very good food and very impressive cellar. We really enjoy discovering new secluded places, Schulphoek is highly recommended

At some distance from the ‘centre’ of the town; but very manageable The lady running the show here is very professional and we liked the touch of her hosting us for dinner: it was one of the best dinners we had had in our stay in South Africa. The room here were the best and we realise that you got...

We stayed in the Scallop suite as in the main picture, although lovely the pictures paint a slightly better picture than found. The room feels smaller than the pictures, however the views are amazing. It is long way out of Hermanus to pop in for a meal and then drive back, however we ate on site the first evening and...

We had a wonderful Stay at Schulphoek. The Food was great. Service could improve a little, especially the breakfast service was really slow. The views are fantastic. Petro and her husband are great Hosts!

We stayed here for four nights at the beginning of our holiday. The guest house is beautifully decorated, no detail is over looked. The owners are brilliant on advising the best way to spend your time in the area. The food is delicious and there is a great selection of wine to choose from. We will definitely be back here!

Had a lovely and reading couple of days ay Schulpoek. What a lovely location with amazing views of ocean and sometimes whales. My daughter & I stayed in the Guest House, which was ideal for what we needed. Would love to stay in the rooms next time. Petro and her staff were very helpful with any requests at any time...

Excellent accommodation, friendly staff and a location right on the coast. You can even see whales from the lounge area of the guesthouse (during whale season of course) but even off season this is a fantastic place to relax and enjoy oneself. The in-house chef is exceptional and the wine cellar is amazingly stocked at extremely reasonable prices.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Schulphoek guesthouse overlooks the bay from which it received its name - an idyllic expanse of ocean, where whales are frequent visitors. Beyond its quiet beaches, you will find nature paths and bird watching. Just 5km from Hermanus centre, Schulphoek offers an eco-conscious refuge, with seven sumptuously decorated suites that overlook either our garden or the sea. Food is our passion. You will find a three-course menu du jour, served at our social table (or separate) with organic produce from our potager garden and fresh-line fish. Our cellar is a haven for aficionados, featuring 12,000 bottles of local wine. ... more   less
