“Loved Our Stay”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

This has to be one of the best B&B’s in Hermanus. We were situated on the second floor giving us amazing views of the sea and fantastic sunsets from our private little balcony. Our room was comfortable and the homemade breakfasts were brilliant. Elizabeth and her staff are to be commended for going the extra mile to make our stay special. It's the extra little touches that make all the difference here. On our arrival I happened to mention we were there for my boyfriend’s birthday. At breakfast the next morning Elizabeth welcomed us with a lovely bottle of sparkling wine to celebrate.

This little gem is only a 5 minute walk away from Grotto beach, unfortunately it was not whale season, but it would be the ideal spot for whale watching.
We absolutely loved our stay and would include Villa Blu on our next trip to Hermanus.

Good memories! A beautiful place. Warm, friendly welcome. Excellent decorated rooms. What touched us was the welcome basket with snacks when we got into the room. Lovely home cooked breakfast. Friendly staff. Enjoyed the walk to the beautiful Grotto Beach. This place has really that personal touch that we appreciate. Will for sure be back!

My husband and I had a night here whilst exploring the garden route and it was wonderful! Despite arriving late,Elizabeth stayed to welcome us and we enjoyed complimentary champagne and cheese- amazing! Beautiful set up and only a shame we were not staying longer. Breakfast was incredible! Only quibble was that our room was quite hot at night and we didn't have a/c or a fan. We would have opened the balcony door except the evening mosquitos were out in force. We would definitely recommend villa blue and would happily return in the future.

Villa Blu is one of those places which raises the bar in the hospitality industry. We only spent one night there as a "try out" for future visits, but I can confirm that we are very happy to go back. The room was exceptionally comfortable with a lovely view of the sea. We will,certainly go back.

If you come to Hermanus, take the breakfast at Villa Blu: Nice, clean and elegant rooms with a balcony at the first floor with ocean view. A warm welcome with a little welcome greeting at our room. Lovely Elizabeth, every time friendly and helpful. Our room was very cute and well decorated. Everything was fine and well organised. We enjoyed our stay and thinking about coming back for a longer time. Thank you for the wonderful stay at your guesthouse.

We travelled the West Coast and have only good memories of our stay at Villa Blu. Clean, neat and beautiful decorated rooms. The champagne, cheese, biscuits and grapes in our room were a welcoming surprise. Breakfast was excellent and the melktert was definitely the cherry on top! The friendly staff rounded off a perfect stay.

The warm hospitality made us feel like coming home, the rooms are beautifully decorated and there is a large deck for sundowners and a nice garden. The beaches are in walking distance.
The excellent, fresh breakfast, the comfortable rooms and the friendlyness of manager Elizabeth and her stuff make Villa Blu to one of the best B&Bs I know!
