Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 January 2014

We had a lovely stay at Cliff Cottage in December this year. Dot and Chuck were lovely hosts - warm, friendly and always ready to help.

We stayed at the Garden Cottage. The rooms are spacious, well equipped, clean and very well maintained. A warm and sumptuous breakfast is served each morning.

A short walk away from the cliffs and the Towncentre.

Would definitely come back if we’re in Hermanus again!

A great little getaway. The room was tastefully decorated and regularly cleaned. We were pleased to be able to enjoy the garden to relax in, while still being close to town and the coast. Dot and Chuck also offered great suggestions for things to see in the surroundings, even making bookings for us. Super helpful and friendly.

We stayed at the Cottage for only one night. Pleased with the location and private entrance to our cottage. Accommodations were clean and very inviting. Chuck and Dot were very friendly and helpful with recommendations. The breakfast was hot and delicious. The Cottage is walking distance to town and very convenient for the Whale watching cruise. Wish we could have stayed longer!

My husband, son (less than a year-old), and I stayed at Cliff Cottage recently. We were so impressed by the accommodations, the area, and the friendly environment! Chuck and Dot were incredibly warm and made us feel very welcome. Our son loved the attention that they gave him! Chuck even made arrangements for me to join a shark dive the following morning.
The location of this B&B made it very easy to access the rest of the town by car or foot. A walk along the Cliff Path allowed us many opportunities to see southern right whales from the shore!
The only problem with staying at Cliff Cottage was that every other accommodation at which we stayed was compared to it -- and most of them did not measure up! I would (and have) happily recommend this B&B to any and all travellers!

This is my second stay this year at Cliff Cottage and it was lovely to be back. The rooms are very comfortable and cosy and the house is a very short walk to town along the coast path.
Chuck and Dot are very welcoming and knowledgable about the area and activities.
It really does feel like a home from home and I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

Room Tip: Both the rooms i stayed in were lovely. Definitely ask for scrambled eggs for breakfast!

We we're staying one night in Hermanus and we thought immediately that this was the perfect place to sleep. We booked one night before leaving and got the garden cottage. Chuck and Dot are very hospitable and make you feel at home right away. The garden cottage was clean and had a great spot right in the green garden. Good location to go for the cliff trail and grab diner in town or in the new harbor.

The lodge provided a good service. Nvertheless, some facts gave a slight negative taste. Although we paid the deposit (what is basically ok) by credit card it was not possible to pay the remaining 50% the same way. Only cash was accepted. In a country where you try to avoid carrying cash arround you this is not acceptable - even if you stay a couple of days. Internet was charged extra but was extremely slow and clunky and barely not usable. Owners were very friendly and helpful, rooms were clean and good equiped (except of the kitchen). Breakfast was included and excellent (is served in the garden in case the weather is fine).
