We loved Hermanus, and we loved the Brown Jug Guest House. Our 'Apartment was delightfully furnished, full of character and comfortable. We had our own Patio and a Braai.
Our Hosts Abel and Louise were charming, welcoming and very hospitable.
We took Breakfast in the main house, which was delicious. Served by Louise, background music supplied by Abel !!.
Other Guests staying there, were regulars over many years, and spoke very highly of their stays.
If, or, when we return to Hermanus, The Brown Jug will be at the top of our list. Thankyou.
P.S. Do visit the local Saturday Market near The Brown Jug - Fab.

Room Tip: The Guest House is set in a quiet area of Hermanus, a 10 minute stroll from the Town, noise is not an issue.

Superb room in lovely house very close to center of Hermanus, housed in lovely gardens with a clean well maintained pool. The room was beautifully furnished with large bathroom and very well equipped kitchen. We also had a lovely patio area for sitting out. Louise and Abel were very friendly, welcoming and helpful.

Room Tip: We chose this room at the Information office in the town and were delighted with it.

We stayed 6 nights in the same place in 2012, this time we chosed to stay 10! We really think it´s a good B&B/Guesthouse. Louise and Abel are very welcoming, so are their dogs and other pets. The little flat we rented has o big room, a small but well aquipped kitchen and a rather big bath-room with both a tube and a shower. The living room has nice furniture, the double bed is comfortable and theTV has a lot of channels including Euronews. The adjoining veranda just outside has nice furniture for breakfast and other meals and the pool, on the other sid of the house, is clean and nice for an afternoon swim. Also the car is well looked after, locked in over night and shadowed at daytime.

This apartment like set-up was very clean, warmly furnished and comfortable in every way. The two bedrooms with en suite bathrooms are off the living/dining room. This lovely house with pool and garden areas is within short walking distance to the center of town. Louise and her husband are friendly, gracious, interesting people who are very helpful in answering questions, making recommendations and just being available to enjoy informal conversation. We were so surprised to be upgraded to a second room for our adult son without even thinking about such a possibility! The Brown Jug is a real stand out in terms of a homey, personal and individualized accommodation.
