I can recommend this guesthouse to everyone passing through Hermanus! Friendly hosts, great breakfast and the room was spotless clean! Great views of the mountain and a nice walk to town where you'll find lots of cute restaurants.

We only stayed for one night on our way to Wilderness but wish we'd stayed longer. The guest house is beautiful, the rooms lovely and Sue and Jimmy were great hosts and made a wonderful breakfast. They recommended a restaurant in town called lemon butta which was really good, we walked there which took
about 20 mins and got the tuk tuk service back. After breakfast the following day we walked on the coast into town and back which took about an hour. Would really recommend to anyone visiting Hermanus but please do stay more than 1 night!

Nice an quite locale with friendly service. The breakfast will make you feel right at home. The rooms are clean and very well maintained. Will definitely recommend a stay at the Bamboo Guest House for a quiet get away.

Bamboo Guest House was excellent. Hosts were charming. They offered good local advice, a beer on checking in and conversation and wine one evening after dinner. The pool was nice as was the nicely landscaped back yard. The house is easy to find in a very upscale, safe neighborhood. Our sea view room had a great view of the secured parking lat and distant partially obstructed views of the water across the street. However, there was access to the famous coastal walking path directly across the street with great views of the sea and the opulent seaside homes. Restaurants in town were good and inexpensive. Bamboo is a great place to stay in Hermaus

Our stay was quite short so we therefore did not have the chance to fully appreciate the B&B.
It's a pity because the owners were absolutely charming. You can enjoy a very relaxing moment in their little peace haven in the garden.
The room was extremely neat and we enjoyed every moment.
Breakfast was a must !

Thanks again !
