Reviewed 19 January 2013

It is all about expectations. We were a bit disappointed, that the apartment we had got was not as stylish as the rest of the B&B with a lot of art and nicely decorated.
The living room had two bunk beds, the TV even if not needed not an asset to the room.
The furniture on the terrace and also the maintenance of the garden could be more attractive.

Room Tip: The room on the second floor are a lot nicer.

Nice room, nice hosts. The only thing that we missed was the possibility to choose what we want to eat for breakfast. They have a daily changing menu but if you dont like the stuff they offer that day, you have to ask for an alternative as they dont have a buffet.

Beautiful location right on the edge of a nature reserve. Rooms, service, food - all great. Stayed in the suite (huge), and family stayed in a smaller (but not small) room, which was also very nice. Only one minor complaint - shower door in the suite was missing some panels. But given the very reasonable price for this high quality establishment (reasonable by South African standards, and therefore evern more so by international standards), I would struggle to go below 5 stars.

Room Tip: The suite (and some other rooms) have a sea view (in the distance - but still a very beautiful view...

Me and my wife stayed there for 2 nights and really enjoyed it. Breakfast was delicious. We stayed in the suite, it is big with King bed, shower, big bath, couch and balcony. There is also a pool. Was really great and would definitely stay there again!

We stayed two nights in a sea facing room with a balcony. Very comfortable furnishings and very clean. The decor is a lot of white tile, chrome railings, and beige walls. Artwork and sculpture is everywhere - on the vanity, near the bathtub, on the bookcases, on the deck, etc. - wonderful to look at. The cliff paths is three short blocks away and is a beautiful walk.

Stayed in the family room for 2 nights - had the pool to ourselves, great kitchen facilities, could have stayed there cooking real food if we had wanted to. Quiet, comfortable, clean - great base for Hermanus, but you will need a car.

Room Tip: You need a car
