I love the whole vibe of Anchor's Rest. I love the Seagulls suite, picture perfect room with a view. Everything you could need for a business trip and more. Walking distance from the beach and business hub. Perfect holiday vibe all round.

Sorry, a late review but such a wonderful time. Stayed here 3 years ago & had such a lovely time we had to come back. Hilary & her daughter made us so welcome. We were saddened not to see Guy 😢 The apartment & garden was brilliant as was the communal garden area & pool. It's so close to the...

Lovely decoration, large room with all the amenities you need. Fantastic shower and bath, great service and everything you need to make the stay wonderful. We were there over a cold spell, and enjoyed the heater, rugs and warm duvet that made the stay very cosy. The house is not far from the ocean, which is right across the street,...

As this was our fourth visit it's clear we like the place! Four of us stayed for four nights in the inter-connecting Driftwood and Pebbles rooms, with good self-catering facilities. Walking distance to the centre of town and all in all an ideal place to stay. Thanks again, Hilary.

Good accessibility. Close to the coast line. Continental, simple breakfast is optional for R60 pp. Rooms are nice with all you need for self catering and braai. Swimming pool and leisure are just next to the rooms. Light room service every day. Walking distance to good seafood restaurants in New Harbor. Hay- no UBER in Hermanus. Payment with credit card...

We arranged to start our 17 day's holiday to the Cape by staying 5 nights in Onrus. We had never been there and thought it did not matter we could unwind and to be honest did not expect much. To our absolute surprise and pleasure it was the best part of our holiday! Anchors Rest is well located and we...

The guesthouse is not located right in the centre of town but the distance is walkable. In the evening we did take the car to have dinner. The room was very nice and clear. The breakfast served in the room is nice as well. We got a croissant, a toast each, fruit salad, yoghurt, freshly made orange juice... The place...

Anchor's rest worked very well for us. We were a group of 4, with one couple and two singles. The couple stayed in the one bed cottage and one of the singles in the standard double room. Megan and Hilary were able to open an interconnecting door, which meant privacy with communication was possible between the two suites. I was...

Although it was a good ten to fifteen minute drive from the centre of Hermanus, it was perfect for the whale watching tours as it is only a couple of minutes from the New Harbour.

“Don't expect a sea view, otherwise ask for any room. And each unit has a BBQ and small garden area to use. My husband would love this! In summer, the pool should also be rather nice to use.”
