The hosts of the lodge were fantastic, even though check in closes at 9 I rocked up at 11 and was still let in and showed my room, and being even more disorganized they kindly let me borrow a charger too. The bed was enormous and incredibly comfortable, everything was spotless with clean linen, towels and beach towels. Even though...

We had made a reservation for a room with a big (!) double bed for 6 Stemmet Lodge during our recent holiday trip to South Africa. When we arrived we were brought up to a room on the first floor. The bed was rather tiny (1,40 metres) and the bathroom was across the hallway. When we mentioned that we were...

Dearest Christian, I find this very funny that you should mention the bed was small as we don't have any double beds at the lodge and none of our rooms are on the first floor, we only have ground floor units with twin beds which we can either keep twin or make as a big queen bed. All our units...

We were so happy to find this place for our stay during the Whale Festival. Every other place got ridicously expensive during this time, but this was still affordable. The location is great, right in the town so you can walk everywhere. The room was nice. The owners were actually away during our stay but the parents were also good...

My wife and I had a great 3 day stay at this gem of a Guest lodge, lovely ground and a big pool. Also had an amAzing breakfast. The owners where very helpful and told us of all the nice walks and places to eat, I would highly recommend this place if you want to explore Hermanus by foot.

We had a very nice stay here. The room was spacious and clean and had great WiFi. The owner was very friendly and answered all our questions. He's also a chef and cooked up a great breakfast for us. The neighborhood is quiet and very safe. We walked to the restaurants after dark with no problems. We'd recommend staying here!

We just love Hermanus and visit often from the UK. The Cottage has been our base in Hermanus for years. The welcome is so warm and you definitely can't find a better location. A short walk gets you to the sea for whale watching or into town for restaurants, bars and shopping etc. Our favourite places to eat are the...

I have read through the wonderful reviews about this place and am still trying to find it. We were booked in there on a recommendation. Although the owner was very friendly, the room we were given was old, tired and had a very bad smell. When I got to the bathroom, I knew I could never use the shower it...

Stumbled across this gem by chance and the delightful welcome from the host Jan made us feel right at home. Lovely accommodation in a great location, would thoroughly recommend. I loved the landscape painting in the bedroom which on closer look the signature appears to be jan's, so very impressed.
