My girlfriend and I stayed at the Mitchell Street Village in Hermanus for 3 nights during the Whale Festival in September. It is centrally located, one block from the Main Road, a short walk to shops, restaurants and the ocean.
The guest house comprises two separate houses on the same property each with its own pool (the 2nd house was closed for renovations). The surrounds, garden and pool area are beautifully landscaped - including sculpted trees and plants at the entrance.
We had a suite on the second floor, which had a private balcony overlooking the garden and pool. The room was spacious, tastefully decorated with comfortable king size bed. The bathroom had a large shower and smallish bath. A full English breakfast is served in the cosy lounge which has a beautiful country-styled, en-suite kitchen. The staff were friendly and accomadating.
The normal rack rate for the suite is quite expensive when compared to other area guest houses and B&Bs some of which have rooms with sea views. We were fortunate to receive a 50% discount from the normal rate, which we felt was excellent value.
All in all, I would reccommend the Mitchell Street Village if you're looking for a quiet, cosy and relaxing weekend getaway.
