“Hornbill House Self Catering”
Reviewed 1 July 2013

We had a lovely stay at Hornbill House, nicely decorated, clean and very cosy. We received a complimentary bottle of Hornbill wine and received a very friendly welcome. Loved the serenity, with so much activities and great places to visit close by. It is very central to Hermanus and surrounding suburbs. Thank you for a fantastic stay, will definitely recommend it! Great affordable accommodation. We will definitely visit again!

We had a fabulous weekend at Hornbill House, Hermanus...The quaint morning market of Hemel en Aarde, the restaurant, 1,5 kilos away from the theatre in Onrusrivier, the accommodation being so hip,modern and tongue in the cheek! To top it all, the owners' garage winery and then to top this a bottle with compliments. Even tea, coffee, sugar and rusks, so REALLY!! you have choices in life! we loved it.

Hornbill House's accomdation was very nice and clean. The owner even arranged for us that we, the Namibian could "braai" as we love a braai and it is very much appreciated.
Thank you for arranging the accommodation for us on such short notice.
You will surely see us again! Rossouw & Dembowsky Families

We found Hornbill House to be very nicely decorated, clean and well located, close to some excellent shops and restaurants in the Hemmel am Aerde village. We would definitely recommend it as it seemed a cut above many of the other B&Bs we were shown in the Hermanus area. It was also considerably better value.
