Pleasant rooms, but small and no air-con. There was a ceiling fan that was noisy. Nice breakfast. Very friendly owners. Pool area is small, and the sun-bed mattresses were not clean due to the birds. Takes about 10 minutes to walk to town,

Hi Phil,

Sorry that you found the loungers to be unclean due to the birds. They are checked and cleaned daily, but perhaps your timing with the birds was unfortunate. We only have air con in the studio room. The other rooms have ceiling fans, but because the standard rooms are small, - ceilings not that high, I understand the noise of the beating of the air could be a nuisance. I can only think that is the noise you mean?? We check them regularly for squeakiness and oil them too.

Warm regards,
Annamarie

We stayed at the Potting Shed for 11 nights to meet up with S.A based family. We had the de-lux rooms and they were lovely, spacious with an outside private area. The other 3 ground floor rooms looked small with no outer area. Annamarie and David are very helpful and originally from England. Our king size bed was very comfortable and the room and en-suit wet room was cleaned every day by the lovely staff. Breakfast was fresh fruit followed by either a cooked English or pancakes. I would stay here again if we visit Hermanus in the future.

Room Tip: De- lux room if staying for more than 2 nights

Thank you for your review. Yes - I think for a long stay you chose wisely to book a larger room with king size bed. The standard rooms are much smaller with queen beds. The deluxe rooms have much bigger bathrooms too.

Warm regards,
Annamarie

We stayed at the Potting Shed for just over 3 weeks, using Hermanus as a base for day trips out and about.

This is an excellent place to stay:

- the owners, Dave and Annamarie are very helpful and pleasant. Its always nice to know that there is someone there that can help if/when needed.

- the room (we had a deluxe room) was ideal with a large comfy king size bed, large bathroom with great walk in shower; sit out area with table and chairs; separate inside sitting area with telly. Good tea and coffee making facilities; decent hair dryer - all the nice touches that are a pleasant surprise!

- breakfast was great. You can either have cooked or continental and Dave and Annamarie are there to greet you to make sure all is well. We liked the home made mueslie and the cooked breakfast - the eggs were always cooked to perfection - just the way we liked!

- the deluxe rooms are very accessible for the less mobile. Parking is just outside the room to make it easy for those not able to walk long distances. The Potting Shed is wheelchair accessible.

- The main thing is that the standard of service at the Potting Shed is consistent - consistently excellent. We have stayed at 5 star hotels that are great one day but not the next ; at the Potting Shed the room was always kept clean, there were always enough tea bags/sugar etc; breakfast was always good; everything worked - there was always hot water etc, the linens were always fresh and clean ...all credit for this must go to the owners and staff (who also were very friendly and helpful).

Thanks Dave and Annamarie for making our stay so relaxing and pleasant!

We would thoroughly recommend The Potting Shed for a stay of any duration.

I would recommend this place to anyone wanting a quiet get away to Hermanus. I found that the location in terms of sea view not to be the best. But it is well within walking distance from the centre of town and the sea. The Potting Shed in itself is really a lovely guest house, clean, mod and great breakfast.

Hi Greg,

Thank you for your review. For a sea view we offer self catering apartments - 3kms from the guest house. Unfortunately our guest house rooms don't have a view - but the sea is a 5 minute walk away (at the end of our street). Glad you had a good stay though and enjoyed the breakfast - that's always good to hear - as I'm the cook! :)

All the best,
Annamarie & Dave

We stayed at the upstairs studio with a separate entrance, own patio and braai. Perfect for having a glass of wine and watch the stars on the deck chairs. Very beautifully decorated accommodation. Shops, restaurants and beach in a walking distance. We can definitely recommend it to anyone.

It was a great experience. We did not expect such a great accommodation in Hermanus. Everything was new and stylish. To walk to downtown takes about 10 minutes. If we travel South Africa again - we come back :)
THX !

Room Tip: the room beside the pool ist the best of all !!
