We were six people, four adults and two children, who stayed at Brown Jug Guest House for three nights. It is well spaced with a wonderful pool in a quiet area close to the centre, within a short walking distance. The owners were very kind and most helpful. We warmly recomend Brown Jug and Hermanus..

Thanks for your review and it was our pleasure to host you all. The family unit caters just as easily and comfortably to two or a family as in your case. During the summer months the inviting salt water swimming pool is a n added bonus. We sincerely hope to see you again in the near future

Hermanus our new favourite town in South Africa, Brown Jug was exactly what we were looking for.
Quite,safe location with quick and easy access to the seafront,restaurants and shops.
The apartment was tastefully furnished with plenty of space and a private patio.
A good location for exploring this very interesting and relaxing coastal area.
Thanks Louise.

Thank you so much for those very kind words. We are very fortunate that our location has improved even more since the opening of the two new shopping centers to the eastern part of the village. The route from the village to our guest house is a very easy and pleasant stroll past shops and restaurants in a very well lit up and upmarket part of town. Our guests are all at ease walking into town and even doing so after a leisurely evening meal.
We hope to see you both again really soon.

On a peaceful road, within a 3 minute walk from the whale view sites and all shops and restaurants, the accommodation is great. There is a swimming pool, your own private garden patio and barbecue area, huge bedroom with en suite large bathroom with bath and walk in shower, fully fitted kitchen, large lounge/dining room with flat screen TV and secure on sight parking. Very friendly and helpful hosts and exceptional value. I would definitely stay here again.

A wonderful stay, could not have been better. The cat adopted us, it was always waiting at our door to get in. We stayed at many places on our extended holiday in Africa, the Brown Jug was one of the best places..... If we had to live in South Africa, we would live in Hermanus.

Thank you very much Sally for your review. We are glad that your Hermanus experience was a good one. Mojo the resident cat missed you after you left and still sits outside the door hoping to be let in. I really hope that you will be able to visit us again sometime soon

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
It’s true - accommodation in Hermanus that offers a beach view is plentiful, but there are few that provide the welcoming hospitality and comfort that The Brown Jug Guest House has. Not only are you welcomed by the owners, Abel and Louise, when you first arrive, but their friendly staff as well as Labradors - Keesha and Tula, and kitties - Squeek and Mikey, are always excited to meet new guests. The Brown Jug is centrally situated in sought-after Eastcliff - a quiet leafy suburb, and is a mere two minute stroll away from the shops, restaurants and seafront where you can enjoy the town’s famous land-based whale watching from the cliff tops. With a pristine garden, comfortable private units, and a sparkling salt water swimming pool, The Brown Jug allows you and your family or group to relax on your private patio or on one of the pool loungers while enjoying the tranquillity of your beautiful surroundings. The Brown Jug’s guest units each sleep between two to four adults and sleeper couches can accommodate a child or two in Units One or Two, with Unit Three being a Studio Room. All the units are individually equipped and each one has a full bathroom, with shower and bath, lounge, dining area, kitchen and comfy plush furniture. Each unit also has a flat screen TV, DSTV and DVD player with free Wi-Fi access – but I doubt you will want to browse on your phone given the variety of activities and places to see that Hermanus has on offer. A short stroll from The Brown Jug will take you to the seafront, the quaint shops and the antique shops that Hermanus is renowned for, and to its fine restaurants for a long lazy lunch overlooking the sea, with the distinct possibility of a whale show. Then there’s the cliff paths, the Marine Tidal pool for a fully energized swim and the Fernkloof Nature Trail with the first of the available walks – The Elephant Walk – a mere 600 meters away. There’s also the Saturday Craft Market where friends (and their pets) meet, and the blue flag beaches that are just five minutes away by car. Mountain bike trails are in abundance and truly magnificent scenery awaits with routes up the valley with clearly marked routes catering to various degrees of expertise. Hike into Fernkloof Nature Reserve or explore the Hemel en Aarde Valley just 6 kilometres away and taste the wines of the region. If you are looking to experience Hermanus from a place catered for families or groups, then The Brown Jug Guest House should be high on your list. ... more   less
