“You get what you pay for”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

Only needing somewhere literally to rest our heads as a stop along the Garden Route I booked the Standard Suite for my partner and I.

The room is not in the B&B, it's in the carpark and was probably the smallest room you could imagine.

The front door and the bathroom door could not be open at the same time it was that small.

We joked that it was like being Dobby the House Elf and living under the stairs. This room is way too small for two people.

As i said you get what you pay for and the room was cheap.

The breakfast however was really lovely and from what I could see of the actual B&B it looked pleasant.

Next time Ill spend the extra cash to get a livable room

Room Tip: Not the standard suite!!!!!!!!!!!!

Top quality service from Annatjie and her team. Sea view fantastic. Great walks along coast cliffs starts across the road. Walking distance to restaurants. Very romantic. We enjoyed the spa bath in the en- suite bathroom

Room Tip: We were very happy with our honeymoon room with best seaview of waves breaking behind Fick pools

This must be one of the best Guest Houses in South Africa! The suite that we had was excellent and all the amenities that we required were available to us. The staff were fantastic and the manner in which our booking was done was not only courteous and friendly but very efficient, confirmation was timeous and the rate was excellent! The breakfasts were delicious and served promptly with a smile.We will in future most certainly stay here again!

We've only ever stayed in Hotels before so a guest house was an experience for us. It's beautifully clean, the service was excellent, but the decor had a very tired feel about it and needs a bit of a modern lift. However when I look and see what we paid for our nights stay in the honeymoon suite with a balcony and sea view it's really very good value. So if you are looking for somewhere a bit quirky not too far from the centre of Hermanus give it a try.

Exceptional. Absolutely fabulous, and a must for people to stay. Very easy to find, lovely views of bay and close to all restaurants and shops. Car parking and free wifi. The reception is stunning, beautifully decorated and spacious. Available coffee station and South African port available while sitting in comfortable lounge and soft music playing. The owner and staff are friendly helpful and very pleasant. Our room was no4 upstairs, again beautifully decorated with views over the bay. Huge bathroom with toiletries very very clean. Bedroom was very spacious and had large double comfortable bed, flat screen tv, fridge, coffee making facilities, and balcony. Breakfast was unbelievable choice, plenty to eat, included cereals, fresh fruit, cold meats, cheeses, and full cooked breakfast. Ample coffee, water and juices. Iam writing this during our stay as it is so lovely, we are having only 2 nights here and wish it were more. I would definitely recommend this beautiful guest house.

We stayed here for 4 nights in the large sea-facing "Exquisite" suite The views of the sea were great. The room was very well-equipped with fridge, coffee and tea-making equipment and a good bathroom. There was secure on-site parking. The wi-fi was excellent. The staff were friendly and helpful. However we had a couple of problems - the kitchen was unable to deliver breakfast on time, despite orders being placed the night before, waiting 30 minutes on a couple of occasions. On one occasion the external night time door lock didn't work and it took 5 minutes of fiddling with it to gain entry at 11.00 pm.

I will certainly return if staying in Hermanus again! Air conditioned comfort on a very hot day. More breakfast than I should really eat!! Great Queen size bed and everything we required. For the classification it was "as good as it gets!!!!!"
