Reviewed 14 November 2013

A mere 5 minute walk to Hermanus Town.....or a little longer by the Beautiful Cliff walk, Cliff Cottage is a beautiful B and B with the added bonus of the hospitality of your Hosts Chuck and Dot. I have just spent two nights at CC. It would have been more but they were booked out.

Your Hosts have all the local knowledge and information on all that's happening in Hermanus and their friendly disposition means you feel very much "at Home". CC is the ideal holiday home in what is a Beautiful part of the Western Cape.

Our group stayed here for a couple of nights while we did some whale and shark watching in Hermanus and Kleinbaai, and it was
The house was very homely and comfortable, but also very secure with a locked side gate and electronic gate on the driveway for off street parking. All the living areas were independent of one another, with only the people staying in that area able to access it.
The beds were very comfortable, and a lovely clean bathroom adjoined our room. My companions did have a bit of noise in their room from rain falling on the sheet metal roof add-on to the house.
Chuck and Dot were great hosts, full of useful information about the area and local service providers. Fantastic cooked breakfast with cereals, fresh juice, plunger coffee and a wonderful fresh fruit salad.

We stayed at Cliff Cottage in October 2013 and really enjoyed a long week end there (3 nights). Dot and Chuck are great hosts making us feel comfortable with a keen attention to detail.

The room (No2) was perfect for us with a second bedroom for our daughter, it was clean and spacious...ideal!

Location is good with a short hop onto the cliff path and in to town.

The down side to our trip was that it was too short.!

We will be back all being well in the not too distant future.

We arrived at Cliff Cottage for a stay of 5 days mainly for whale watching in the harbour. Chuck and Dot could not have been more helpful or friendly throughout our stay and managed to retrieve from potential disaster our Ruby Wedding celebration dinner when the original restaurant discovered they had booked us in over an event for a large party. Instead we probably had a better deal at Lemon Butta where wines and desserts were complementary and special arrangements had been made for our pleasure. Wow! Breakfast each morning was always good, the room comfortable with a large bed. We had a number of excursions from Hermanus as well as whale watching in the harbour. We visited penguins at Stoney Point and bought cheeses and a snack lunch at Clein River Cheese Factory and decorative candles at Bredesdorp returning along the coast. Chuck and Dot gave us some good steers about eating out so the whole period went very well. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet but we stayed in attached rooms next to the garden cottage.

My friend and I have just returned from a wonderful holiday staying at Cliff Cottage in Hermanus before travelling back to Cape Town for the remainder of our stay in South Africa. Cliff Cottage is home from home at its best, lovely comfortable rooms and a full cooked breakfast to start the day with.
Chuck and Dot couldn't be more helpful, booking trips or restaurants to eat in. Highly recommended.

Recently returned from a trip to Hermanus where we had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at Cliff Cottage. The rooms and ensuites are top notch and beautifully clean. The location is excellent close to the cliff path with a short walk into the town. Chuck & Dot are the perfect hosts who make you feel very welcome and are very helpful with their knowledge of the local area.
