Leslie welcomed us to the Guest House and from minute 1 we felt at home. The town is very cute and everything walking distance. We stayed only 1 night and the morning after John took his time to explain us in detail how to reach our next destination and filled us with tips and recommendations. It felt like we were...

John & Lesley have really put their heart and soul into their guest house; with no detail or cost spared in the product they offer to their guests. Rooms are very spacious with beds that you do not want to get out of, spotless, equipped with everything and then some and the common area with pools and ample space to...

We stayed with our 4 children (all under 10) in the family suite. The accommodation was fabulous. The hosts were friendly and welcoming. Excellent home-made biscuits in the room! Breakfast is basic but good. Order your cooked meal as soon as you get to the breakfast room, as it takes a while to be prepared for you. Definitely recommend this...

Needed a one night stay over between holiday destinations. What a fantastic and tranquil place. John and Lesley made us feel at home from the first "hallo". Thank you so much. We stayed in the family unit and it was extremely comfortable for the 5 of us, all creature comforts included.

Me and my husband stayed here for 3 nights in December 2016. We loved it. Lesley and John were sweet and caring. We really felt welcome. The guest house only have 5 rooms which makes it cosy and intimate. We had the pool to ourselves every day. I really recommend Aloe Guest House to anyone visiting Hermanus.

Nice Guesthouse with clean rooms in a good area close to the city centre. Hermanus is worth a trip even withput whales. Breakfast was very minimal and one of the worst in our 6-week travel through south africa.

Lovely little B&B close to the city center and beach area to see if the whales are visiting. Rooms are nicely designed and bed comfortable. Loved the coffee as it not the normal instant type stuff. Staff and management were friendly and helpful.
