Reviewed 30 July 2014

What a great find in Hermanus! This little inn decorated in shabby chic was delightful! We were greeted by Elizabeth, shown to our room, given cheese and bubbly to drink on the deck and joined by whales just off the beach. Stunning views of the stars at night, sea views with whales during the day. The breakfasts are a work of art, just stunning with enough food to keep you going all day. We really loved this place and will be back on our next trip to SA.

Room Tip: The upstairs rooms at the front have the best views

My husband and I stayed at the delightful Villa Blu B & B for two nights. We were greeted at the door by the very friendly and helpful owner Elizabeth who took us to our room and helped us settle in. We stayed in the "Lovers Cove" suite. It was beautiful with stunning views of the bay and mountain. The attention to detail was beyond my expectation and the cleanliness was 10 out of 10 and I'm very fussy! Elizabeth breakfast in the morning is just to die for and done with so much love. Trust me you won't need to eat till Dinner! We mentioned being interested in Whale watching which Elizabeth immediately organised for us with a company called "The Whale Watchers". They were awesome and we got to see many whales close up! Our guide was very friendly and very informative. His passion and excitement made our experience even that more special.
Villa Blue is close to town and all the shops and restaurants. We highly recommend them and again thank Elizabeth for a wonderful stay. We will be back with the whole family!!!!! Ross and Joanne.

Our first visit to Hermanus. When we arrived at Villa Blu on a cold and dark Friday evening, we received a warm & friendly greeting. Our room was warm and homely; the breakfast was amazing and the hostess was so nice. we'll be back.

A wonderful experience! Elizabeth and her team go out if their way to ensure you are well looked after. Views from upstairs rooms are spectacular! Decor and facilities are excellent and the home cooked breakfast delicious. A definite "must" if looking for a B&B in Hermanus!

We stayed over the Easter holiday's. Lovely hospitality, neat & comfortable rooms. Devine breakfast served in the mornings. Great location & close to blue flag beach. Hosts very informative and friendly - lovely warm people. We would go back any day if we visit the area again.

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!
