I was a little worried when I realized that 78on5th was further from the center of Hermanus than I had anticipated (my fault) but the B&B won me over with great service, a very nice room, and an extremely welcoming attitude. Our room in the back of the guesthouse was very quiet and had a lovely little patio with a...

The tv was connected with another room. They were changing the channel while we watch. The sound change also. Room is way over priced. No mirror to do my hair only small one in bathroom. Breakfast was awesome.

Just a short stop in Hermanus. Nice room, great service and very jummy breakfast. Next time we will stay longer, as the beach is not far from the B&B and it is very quiet in the night. To the city center you need to go by car.

The daily various breakfasts are just delicious and in front of the sea it's just perfect ! Rooms are comfortable and we enjoyed having an individual terrasse with a stunning...

You have a wonderful B&B and we thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay. We had a back room and loved facing the mountain and pool. Only criticism is that we could hear the neighboring room occasionally at night however this was not a big concern as we were awake anyrate.

Dear Marianne I am truely sorry you had to hear the "neighbours".....doesn't matter that you were awake, you should have heard the sea echo, not your neighbours. At times certain guests don't realize just how loud they put their TV's and if they leave their sliding doors open at night sound can travel quite far - especially being so close...

Very friendly well maintained establishment. Room was clean and well furnished and supplied. Food was of an excellent quality and varied from one day to the next, even a request for an item not on the menu was provided without any trouble.

Beautiful artwork throughout the house. We had a quiet room at the back of the property with a small terrace and views of the garden and mountains as well as easy access to a small pool. Bed was very comfortable with a choice of 3 pillows! Good breakfast and very friendly hosts and staff. Would definitely stay again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Because 78on5th is owner run it is your home away from home. Situated at the foot of the Musselberg Mountains bordering the Fernkloof Nature Reserve we are walking distance from the world famous Grotto beach with its Blue flag status. This makes us the ideal holiday or overnight destination - especially when visiting during Whale season.Enjoy a luxurious sleep while the mountains echo the calming sounds of the sea before you wake up to a delicious breakfast with a difference. ... more   less
