“a place like home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

we just had only one night at this great place and we really enjoyed. the guesthouse is central and close to everything. the room was very clean, well designed and we loved the heating blanket, because the weather was terrible, rainy and cold. all the service from the stuff and the owners was outstanding. they cleaned our car during we were out, because they could noch see it - it was so dirty from the off road trip the day before - thanx for that again!!! ;) they were all very friendly and helpful and make you feel like home. it´s not just a guesthouse!!! we hab a short but great time and if we are one day again in the area we will stay here again...
thank you tanja und michael

What a great and lovely place this is! We were very lucky to have the family suite, with two bedrooms each with its own bathroom and a living in between. And our own little garden! Breakfast is fine. The rooms are very spacy and well designed. John is a wonderful guy, gave us very good advice for spotting whales, great places to eat and a beautiful view uphill. We had a great time, thanks!

I have just stayed at Aloe Guest House Hermanus South Africa and once again rave about our stay. The service recived from all the staff was outstanding but what I think was more important that the owners John and Leslie make you feel you are at home but they are not in your face. The guest house is centrally situated to all amenites.

What was really tremendous this time we had a prearranged supper of OXtail and Mousaka followed by Apple crumble and tips tart. Everything was great except the Oxtail was out of this world!!!! Well cooked and prepared, Another great stay Thank you

Room Tip: All rooms face onto the pool and the family suite is stunning and can accomodate 6 people

I spent a few nights here and i can honestly say it was very sad to leave. Every thing was on its place all the time. All the staff were super friendly. Its not just a guest house, its a family that makes you feel at home. I was there for business and they made it like a holiday. Its very central and close to everything. John and Lesley were amazing and know how to make you feel special!

My wife and I spent one night at this great guest house conveniently situated near the CBD of Hermanus
A warm greeting from the owners followed by a quick overview of the guesthouse and its facilities.
The rooms are large, clean and very comfortable. With many touches that show forethought and concern for guests. Right down to their delicious homemade shortbread.
Many thanks, we will be back!

My wife and i had the pleasure of spending an evening over at Aloe Guest House. We had such a relaxing time away from home, that we will definitely return for a longer stay. The hospitality shown by John and Lesley was amazing!

Room Tip: All the rooms are amazing with easy access to the breakfast area and swimming pool.

Lovely accommodation. Beautiful room, furnishings. Excellent personal and friendly service. We stayed in the 2 bed apartment. Great for families with young children too. Very central and easy walking distance to Hermanus town.
