Bamboo Guest House was prefect for our needs. The house and room were extremely clean and well cared for, the breakfasts were plentiful and beautifully presented. We felt very much at home/ Sue and Jim really looked after us. they gave advice on and booked activities and a restaurant for us. Would certainly return here.

Bamboo guest house was perfect for our short stay in Hermanus, owners Jim and Sue gave us a very warm welcome, provided an excellent service and cooked a delicious breakfast too.

We spend only one night and so didn't have enough time to truly appreciate the bamboo but the hosts were very nice, breakfast was good and the room was a little small but clean and well decorated. big shower. a bit far from the main boardwalk.
