Schulphoek was the perfect choice for my family. You can read other reviews about the amazing rooms, stunning location on the ocean, and the absolutely exquisite food served in the restaurant. I want to acknowledge the dedicated and devoted staff to their guests and to the guesthouse experience. It is the staff who made our trip so memorable. My 10-year-old...

Don't be put off by the approach. What with the road works and the light industrial units as you leave the highway. Oh yes and the township. Hold your nerve, head to the coast and there is your location, right on the edge of the rocky and unspoilt sea scape where peaceful tranquility awaits. The rooms are spacious and well...

Unfortunately we could only stay for one night in this guesthouse. The rooms are very comfortable and nicely decorated. The food is very good especially served with a big choice of excellent wines. We have to come back!

We stayed for 2 nights in the Limpet Room, one of the larger rooms. By large, that really should state "Grande". Very generous sized bedroom and a bathroom that was enormous - it even had it's own settee! Very high quality features and fittings. Service (restaurant and room) was attentive without being intrusive. Erica, the general manager, is lovely and...

We had a two night stay at Schulphoek and could easily have stayed longer. The room we stayed in was spacious and very tidy. The staff could not have been more helpful and welcoming. The evening meals we had were excellent and I would suggest that there is no need to eat anywhere else. We had a wonderful stay here....

We only stayed for one night in this fantastic guesthouse. The rooms are big, clean and all have a unique touch to it. We were lucky enough to stay at the scallop suite which is (the only) sea-facing room and the view alone is worth staying in this room. We even had a jacuzzi and 2 showers next to each...

I was a bit hesitant at first upon pulling up to Schulphoek but once we were greeted at the gate, our honeymoon seclusion commenced! The staff was incredibly friendly, rooms were VERY spacious and elegant, the views were absolutely stunning and the food was to die for! Highly recommend taking a stroll at sunset along the beachfront path. You must...

What a lovely venue. Beautiful sea view and warm and friendly service. Easy access to beach walks. I can highly recommend this guesthouse. Breakfast was delicious too. The rooms were lovely with lots of attention to detail.

This charming little guest house grows on you. If you are looking for minimalism then look elsewhere! The owners are obviously collectors and the large rooms are filled with an eclectic range of vintage furniture. However the bed was comfortable, the linen sheets excellent, the water hot and we enjoyed our short stay here. Strangely in the 2 days we...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Schulphoek guesthouse overlooks the bay from which it received its name - an idyllic expanse of ocean, where whales are frequent visitors. Beyond its quiet beaches, you will find nature paths and bird watching. Just 5km from Hermanus centre, Schulphoek offers an eco-conscious refuge, with seven sumptuously decorated suites that overlook either our garden or the sea. Food is our passion. You will find a three-course menu du jour, served at our social table (or separate) with organic produce from our potager garden and fresh-line fish. Our cellar is a haven for aficionados, featuring 12,000 bottles of local wine. ... more   less
