I have stay her a number of times and always love it. It is on the hill on the outskirts of Hermanus with the most amazing views of the bay. You can stand on the balcony and watch the whales playing in the bay. We did the cliff walk which is fabulous. Great breakfast and lovely staff.

We certainly enjoyed our couple of days at FrancolinHof, the rooms were large, airy and incredibly well kept. The dining area and food served was awesome, this opened out onto an open patio area which was common to the adjacent rooms. From the dining room we could look out over the mountains and could see the many birds and other...

We took some friends to stay with us and we all had a wonderful time here. We were greeted by Jean with a welcome pot of tea, and then shown to our spacious rooms where there was even a complimentary bottle of wine waiting for us each. The rooms were on the ground floor and each had a little patio...

Dear John and Anne Thank you for this lovely review and I'm pleased that our suggestions were helpful - and the tuk-tuk. My car was giving problems last week and I used it then too - it's tempting to feel 'on holiday' more often! Today the whales were putting on a wonderful show and seemed to be enjoying the glorious...

This beautiful guesthouse has great big comfy rooms upstairs with a gorgeous view of the beach and the mountains. I absolutely loved the fynbos surrounding us, with a lovely garden behind the property. We took a beach walk along the promenade just before the rain set in and were treated to a few whales playing in the waves. Breakfast was...
