My husband and I travelled to Hermanus for a wedding in late November. The Potting Shed was such a good spot to stay we extended our stay by several days and enjoyed both the delights of Hermanus and the B&B.

Perfect place for us in Hermanus. Great value, helpful, friendly owner and perfectly acceptable rooms. Would recommend to anyone looking for a clean, comfortable and reasonable place to stay - who don't need to be pampered.

We arrived at the potting shed on 4th January where we were greeted by Annamarie. After bombarding her with questions about the Hermanus area we were shown to our room which was absolutely perfect! The guest house is in an ideal location, about 5-10 minute walk away from the town centre.

We had originally planned to stay in Hermanus for 2 days, however immediately decided to extend it to 4 days after we had a drive around. Grotto beach (a blue flag beach) is a 10 minute drive away, numerous wine estates are a 15 minute drive and Cape Agulhas (Southernmost point of Africa) is 1.5hours away. If you just want a quiet day then the pool is ideal - lovely and clean with a couple of loungers and a seating area. We found Hermanus to be a safe area to walk about in (even at night - sticking to the main well lit road).

Breakfast at the potting shed was great, with a choice of fruit, continental or cooked breakfast and tea/coffee. Special mention to Dave and his scrambled eggs!

Overall, we loved The Potting Shed and would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting the Hermanus area.

Annamarie and Dave have made a home from home. I have stayed there for the last couple of years and have made it my holiday base in Hermanus staying a week or two both times. Hermanus deserves at least 2, if not 3 days to do it justice. One day I did the following, run along the cliff path, breakfast, walk in the foothills of Fernkloof Reserve, walk on the beach, drive up Hemel and Aarde valley, wine tasting at Hamilton Russell, then Bouchard Finlayson and lunch at Newton Johnson in "Heaven", then back down for a game of village cricket (and a beer or two) folllowed by pizzas with friends. A few other things to do include walking the whole cliff path, have a nice lunch then walk back. Watch the whales, take a guided canoe out in the ocean, go horse riding in Botriver around a wine estate, or up to Houw Hoek Pass - 25 minutes away. Take a stroll around town and search out the memorabila shop and finally recuperate next to the pool at The Potting Shed with a glass of wine! Enjoy it.

We stayed at the The Potting Shed Guest House in October 2010. It was our second stay there and we enjoyed it again :-). It is a very cude B&B which is few minutes away by foot from downtown. It has nice rooms and offers a wonderful breakfast. The hosts are lovely and always very helpful in matters of restaurant tips or trips.
