The Potting Shed Accommodation
Ranked #14 of 88 Hermanus B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 February 2012

We visited the Potting Shed in February and were so impressed. The room was spotlessly clean, the bed very comfortable, and the decor was stylish and unusual - a real pleasure!. Our hosts Annamarie and David greeted us warmly and could not have been more helpful. We would thoroughly recommend this guest house.

Room Tip: Fron what we could see all rooms are of the same standard.

We stopped here in mid November 2011 as part of a 3 week tour of S Africa. From the moment we arrived we were warmly welcomed. The room was spotless, spacious and really stylishly decorated with immaculate attention to detail. Annemarie and Dave were perfect hosts providing us with superb sightseeing recommendations, restaurants and even booked our Whale watching tour. No recommendation for the Potting Shed would be complete without a 5* recommendation for the breakfast - our personal favourite were the pancakes - these have to be the best I have ever tasted - fresh, light and completely moorish - the lemon curd should not be passed over! The property is located within easy walking distance to the shore and 10 mins walk to the town centre. Cannot recommend a stay at the Potting Shed highly enough.

We are from the UK and spent three weeks touring the Cape Town area in November 2011. We were recommended by friends to stay at the Potting Shed and when we arrived our first impression was one of feeling very much at home, we were given a cup of tea, first rate recommendations for what to do, where to eat and directions to walk into the town centre. Our room was very comfortable and one of the best breakfasts we had during our trip.
Annamarie and Dave are very good hosts and, guess what, Dave is a Tottenham Hotspurs supporter!!!

We had such a fantastic time from the minute we arrived. We received a lovely warm welcome, the room was gorgeous and great value. Great recommendations for what to do and where to go and they booked us a table at a lovely beach front restaurant and managed to get us window seats! This was my favourite place we stayed on our trip, so personal and great value. The pancakes for breakfast were amazing. We were recommended the potting shed by our friends who stayed there the year before and we shall continue to recommend it!
