Stayed for 1 night in June in this pleasant guesthouse.
Good location, walking distance from town.
Friendly owners, nice breakfast.
Few odd things: we booked a twin room but got something akin to a family room (double bed and two tiny single beds); heating not turned on in the room before we arrived so pretty chilly; where-ever have you been asked to hand in your breakfast order written in dry-wipe on a plastic laminate the night before?; and fridge in the bar for guests to use but not turned on so not cold and no ice for drinks.
Sadly, given the glowing reviews, not in the same league as similar priced guest-houses on our trip from Cape Town and along the Garden Route.

Stayed here for 3 nights, was a most pleasant stay. Annemarie and David (the two owners ) were very helpful with arranging excursions, advice about restaurants etc and were also very friendly without being intrusive.

Room was very very clean and comfortable, plus they had a playstation and DVD player to keep us amused one night when it was raining! Breakfast was tip top esp the eggs and pancakes! Would definitely stay here again, only thing I would add would be an internet station in the lobby area.

The Potting Shed was an excellent place to stay in Hermanus, close enough to the town, restaurants and sea to be able to walk and leave the car behind. Annamarie and Dave were the friendliest and most helpful people we came across in S.A. They helped us arrange excursions and gave us tips about what to see and where to go. Truly invaluable. I can't recommend the Potting Shed highly enough.

My parents & I spent 5 days in a self catering apartment in Tobago Bay run by Anna Marie & David who also own the Potting Shed Guest House. The clean, well maintained 2 bedroom apartment with an ocean view provided a beautiful and relaxing getaway.

The complex is within a short drive of Hermanus town centre, Grotto Beach and other activities in and around Hermanus. Anna Marie & David do provide information about these.

Just a note, the complex is not the easiest to find at night. We were however told this beforehand and when fetching the keys at the Potting Shed we were given good directions to the apartment.
