“The gift of Hospitality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

Came here on honeymoon from cape town.
Very professional and friendly service.
The main living area is so beautiful, and they always have a fireplace warming the room up.

No complaints from me, ill surely be back.

We were enormously delighted in the beauty and serenity of this guesthouse. The hosts were superb and they went out of there way to treat and serve us like royalty. The interior is extremely beautifully done and an atmosphere of peace and serenity filled the place. We live in Ireland, are regular travelers and in my 60 years this was easily the best guesthouse ever!!!! You can't go wrong booking into this gorgeous guesthouse!

Room Tip: We stayed two nights in room 1 - with it's own little garden and a beautiful seaview. The honeym...

The staff made us feel at home and carried us on their hands.

Lovely, comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. love the fact that you can walk to town with the cliff path, and we discovered the lovely tidal pool right in front of the hotel must be ideal in summer.

Great stuff!

We stayed here 1 night our welcome was friendly and you immediately feel at home. The decor is a combination of Victorian, Edwardian and modern. The atmosphere is tranquil and calming although it is close to the road you dont hear the traffic. All the rooms are superbly decorated with different royalty themes. We stayed in the Knights Chamber which was comfortable and cosy although it doesnt have a complete sea view.The service was excellent , they even reserved dinner for us at one of the restaurants which was in walking distance from the guest house. The house overlooks a beautiful view of the sea from the entrance and some of the rooms.The breakfast was really filling. It was great to stay at such a warm, inviting guest house, I will definitely send people there and also stay there when I am in Hermanus again.

Room Tip: My collegues stayed in the Royal Chamber and the Milady's Chamber which were also beautifully de...

This guesthouse is on the edge of town but right by the coastal path and only a 15 minute stroll to the restaurants and shops. The hosts were enormously helpful in making bookings ahead of time and giving advice and booking restaurants too. the room decor is well OTT but this is all part of the guesthouses charm. Come and enjoy.

Room Tip: Upstairs at the front to see the bay

We have just had our 3rd visit to the Guesthouse and once again we were not disappointed. We love going there because it feels like a home from home. The view from our room was spectacular and we were treated so warmly by Annatjie who runs the Guesthouse. The breakfasts are delicious and our room and other arrears are clean and very very beautifully decorated. We can't wait to go back again in the near future.

Room Tip: We love the sea facing rooms on the first floor.

I am writing on behalf of my elderly (84 yrs old) mother and her friend (here on holiday from the UK) who have just stayed there.
They particularly wanted me to write a review on this site as they said their stay was out of this world!
The guesthouse is beautifully and sumptiously decorated and they stayed in 2 extremely comfortable and very large rooms, the King and Queen, which gave them each their own little patio facing the sea. It is also only a short walk from all of the shops an amenities in Hermanus.
However, the best aspect of their stay was the service and hospitality given to them by Annatjie, Michelle and Magnolia. Annatjie in particular excelled in her attention to the ladie's needs. My mom has difficulty with walking any distance and Annatjie took it upon herself to drive and taxi them around throughout the whole visit, even taking them out for the day for nothing other than the pleasure of helping out - what a wonderful lady.
I saw for myself what a wonderful place it was as I dropped them off and picked them up and could see straight away what a fantastic time they had had.
We would recommend this guesthouse to anyone that is thinking of staying in Hermanus.

Room Tip: For those not able to use stairs - the 2 ground floor rooms facing the sea - the King and Queen - ar...
