The Potting Shed Accommodation

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 April 2012

Really nice place to stay. Not in the city centre, maybe 10 minutes walk from there, which is quite pleasant. Annemarie was very helpful, she gave us a lot of information about places around. They have Wi-Fi access in the lodge.
And beakfast is amazing! Pancakes and different jams are just great!

From beginning to end, Annamarie and Dave proved to be friendly and helpful hosts - the overseas booking process was simple, efficient and even provided driving instructions and tourist info; their service (along with their staff) was attentive throughout; and a nice touch was their email after returning home. As the weather in Hermanus was poor, we particularly appreciated Dave's top advice for alternate whale viewing, where we delighted in a few hours of land-based watching - eventually having to tear ourselves away.

We loved our stay at the Potting Shed - so peaceful and relaxing. Our room was spotless with tea/coffee making, in-room safe and ceiling fans; and whilst brightly painted and trimmed in white (loved the touch of fresh lavender sprigs on the bed), was a little dark - however, the weather probably didn't help and I imagine that it could be appreciated on a very hot day. Consequently, we didn't get to use the charming little pool which must be pleasing on a balmy evening. Breakfast was lovely - in a bright and cheerful room, freshly and well made without being heavy, but plentiful to set you up for the day - what I like to call a 'clean' breakfast.

In a very good location with easy access, off-street parking and within a short walking distance of town and it's restaurants, preferably along the cliff walk.

I couldn't believe my luck when I found The Potting Shed online, and promptly cancelled our much more expensive hotel reservation Very pleased that I did, as I had no regrets at all - and neither will you.

I stayed at the Potting Shed with my girlfriend when we were out in SA for a wedding in Spring 2012. It was an extremely enjoyable visit. The couple that own the place are extremely friendly and happy to help out wherever possible. The room was very nicely appointed and extremely clean. We made use of the sweet little pool a couple of times during our stay. Breakfasts were delicious and plentiful with fresh fruit always on the menu, along with the usual continental and cooked breakfast options. It is very well located within Hermanus, just a short walk from the centre of town. We would definitely stay here again if we return to Hermanus in the future.

We stayed here for a night and would've liked to stay longer to explore Hermanus more as it seems like a very nice town. Our room was lovely, the bathroom was quite small but it served it's purpose. Breakfast was good with a choice of cooked breakfast or home made pancakes. The owner was very helpful with local information and tips for were to visit - if you get the chance, go and see the penguins at Betty's Bay. From the B&B you can walk along the cliff path to the centre of town were there are a few nice restaurants.

I was on business in Hermanus. About the Potting Shed Accommodation I can write only well.
Good location, good conditions for rest and work, available wireless Internet.
I liked breakfast served here. It was proposed scrambled or fried eggs, I like eggs.
Annemarie and Dave are open and ready for any assistance.
Only surprise for me was that I had to prepay 100% to company cooperating with Potting Sheed some weeks before arrival.
There were small difficulties to obtain invoice for 100% payment.
However Annemarie and Dave helped me in this matter too.

In Hermanus there is always a warm welcome from Annamarie and Dave. Nothing can be too much trouble for them. It has become my home from home in Hermanus and wonderful to enjoy their hospitality, great company and even support Dave down at the cricket club. It's the best way to chill out properly and get ot know the locals too, over a beer or two or even a bottle of wine.

We stayed in the self catering unit of the Potting Shed for 3 nights. It is now our first choice for a weekend away. The unit has stunning sea views and is only a few metres from the beach. Annemarie and Dave sorted out the DSTV so that we could watch sport and recommended splendid restaurants to us. They are very friendly and helpful and go out of their way to make your stay an enjoyable one. The unit is first class and the rates are very reasonable. We will definitely encourage our friends to stay at The Potting Shed or the self catering unit as we thoroughly enjoyed our weekend there. Kevin & Jeanette Wearing – Gordon’s Bay.
