78on5th in Hermanus

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 March 2014

A pleasant stay just outside of Hermanus town, and within walking distance to beaches and restuarants. Owner gave great recommendations - as to where to eat and what to do. Only downside here, was the breakfast.

We have arrived early, no problem with an early check-in. The room was big and clean with a terrace with direct access to the swimming pool in the garden.
The owners are really helpful in advising on activities, contacting restaurants or tour operators.
An excellent base for exploring Hermanus and surroundings.
A tip: quite a walk from the city center and only 2 dining options available close to the hotel- but nothing that cannot be overcome when you have a car, by calling a cab or when you like walking, so it does not affect my overall note.

Our second visit to a very comfortable guest house. Good rooms, clean with excellent facilities and an ice cold swimming pool! A short walk to the cliffs and the amazing views of Hermanus.Staff friendly and efficient. We will go back again next year, that's the best recommendation I can give.

Our stay was unfortunately short, but very sweet. The room was spacious and well equipped with a comfy big bed and a little deck with braai looking up at the mountain. A huge shower meant no fighting for who goes first. Would definitely stay again.

Hermanus outside of the whale season is a delightful small town as we discovered last year. This year we decided on a week's stay in a guest house which provided a self catering option. We enjoy this because we can slob around in the morning & take breakfast to suit ourselves.

78 was booked many months ago & the self catering room (#3) more than meets our requirements. (I'm typing this in the lounge after a super evening on our balcony drinking wine & using the braai.)

The room is excellent & the kitchen well equipped. Due to my age & RAF flying career I suffer with my back & so before I booked I asked Jose about the bed. He assured me that it is a firm mattress, he was correct.

The rooms are spotlessly clean, Jose & his staff can't do enough for you. The location is lovely & quiet yet with excellent access to both the coastal footpath & the many trails on the adjacent kloof. The centre of town is only a brisk 45 minutes walk away.

All in all a great B&B, highly recommended.

Room Tip: Room 3 is great. Good views & very private.

The selfcatering apartment we had was extremely clean, tidy and very comfortable. The bed was large and for the first time ever I didnt find myself missing my own bed which is a huge credit to the comfort of the bed provided! The apartment was cleaned daily and the staff were always nice and friendly. The reason we decided not to give a 5 star is because of the one and only gripe - the towels, either they are not cleaned in hot water or we got old ones which was a shame!

Thanks guys for a lovely couple of days stay, we had a lovely family suite and certainly enjoyed a splash in your heated pool. The rooms were comfy and the the suite had all the basic facilities. Nice and quiet setting with great views of the hills and bay.
