Hello Pierre,

Glad you liked the pancakes! ;) they are quite a hit. Good idea by my daughter when she was just 16.

Hope to see you again!

Modern guesthouse in the heart of Hermanus. You can really see that the owners have put the their heart and souls into this guesthouse. From when we got there until we left, we were always catered for in a very professional manner. Will stay there again.

Thank you for your review. Yes we try very hard and really have put our heart and soul in to the place. We bought the guest house 10 years ago when it was very run down. We just celebrated our 10th anniversary in South Africa and had this short clip made to show some of our journey. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QBIPclUYE28

The owners Annemarie and Dave are very friendly, helpful and went out of their way to make our stay unforgettable. Rooms clean and upmarket, breakfast presentation gourmet style and tasty. They scheduled our weekend activities to our liking and are very knowledgably of what is going on in Hermanus and what to do and where to dine. Great attention to detail in the rooms, dining room made our stay very pleasurable. They are down to earth people with a sincere interest in the welfare of their guests. I highly recommend staying with them. We will stay them again and again.

The Potting She's is perfect for a weekend getaway. We stayed in a Deluxe room which has its own outside area with a Weber if you feel like braai'ing. The B&B is a short walk from the Cliffs and about a 10 min walk to town. The room was immaculately clean and the king size bed very comfortable. The breakfast is lovely with a cooked breakfast of your choice available. The owners Anna-Marie and David as great hosts and will help with any activities you want to do. There is even a photo board showing the ones they have done personally! Would definitely recommend the Potting Shed and would stay again.

Annamarie and Dave have a great thing going here! "Budget" B&Bs often look dated. Their place is warm and stylish instead. Breakfasts include excellent ham and eggs, plus fresh fruit. And their excursion advice is spot-on.

My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Potting Shed Guest House. Not only was the room fantastic, the close distance to town really made our stay worthwhile. I would recommend the Potting Shed to anyone who loves a clean and friendly environment and there is no doubt in my mind that I will be visiting again very soon. The only regret that I have is that I didn't stay longer.
