We spent 3 days here & despite the stunning location & wonderful staff felt a little disappointed. The house is beautiful but needs a little TLC. The sunbed cushions & umbrellas were in need of replacing as was our terrace furniture. Our room was not always cleaned properly with dirty glasses being left & floor being unswept. This was the...

Magnificient quest house in Hermanus, just 10 minutes walk from the center. Fantastic sea view and a possibility to have a beautiful walk along the coast. Super rooms, really comfortable beds (even with electric warming possibility). Delicious, rich and varied breakfast including almost anything you can think of. Extremely helpful personnel who even sent sandals I forgot to the room...

We spent two nights here while touring South Africa, what a beautiful spot, we had two huge first floor rooms with gorgeous views and balconies and luxury bathrooms. The staff were all very helpful and friendly giving us lots of useful advice about the area. Breakfasts were plentiful and delicious. It was wonderful to step straight out of the hotel...

We arrived at our 2 night stopover accommodation mid afternoon. The car park was already quite full and I managed to negotiate the car into a space at the side of the building. Our meet and greet was efficient but not overly friendly, being passed over to another staff member to complete the show round. A fine building which has...

We loved our stay here in August last year. Perfect hosts, magnificent ocean views, beautiful breakfast and wonderful location. Couldn't ask for more. Oh and secure parking. It has a stately home feel without being pretentious and if we had more time, I would have loved to stay another night. Within a pretty stroll along the coast to Hermanus town,...

We were only here for one night but wished it had been more. Set on the cliff top a few minutes from town our room overlooked the sea and was beautifully appointed with its own balcony. It even had a separate little sitting room. The breakfast was really delicious and the service excellent.

Great guesthouse in Hermanus, about 7-10 minutes walk from the town centre. The back of the guesthouse opens straight on to the cliff path, a 5km walk from which whales can often be seen in the season (July-November inclusive). Room was large and comfortable, breakfast excellent wit a selection from the cold buffet followed by a hot breakfast.
