We had a truly wonderful stay at this lovely guest house. Isabeau was an amazing host and nothing was too much trouble for her. The house was stunning with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the sea.

Shiobhan welcomed us to this lovely guesthouse and her warmth and interest in our visit was wonderful. We loved our room and it's fabulous view. We met Annatjie the following morning and she too could not have been more friendly and helpful. Breakfast was a treat, specially made and beautifully presented. I particularly loved the big bowl of fresh fruit...

We have stayed in Hermanus often before, but never at a facility with such friendly and helpful personnel. The breakfast is absolutely devine and the service will not be beaten easily. Guests can walk to the centre of town as the guesthouse is centrally located. The rooms are spacious and tastefully furnished. You need to book your stay very early...

The staff is extremely helpful and friendly.! They helped us so much with putting our bicycles and cool bag stuff away from our road trip. When you go out for the evening you get a chocolate on the bed when you return. It seems like it is a mission for them to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Fresh...

The Guesthouse was lovely, we had a huge room which was clean and bright. Breakfast was very good indeed and all the staff were very helpful. The pool area offered shade and sun so was perfect for a late afternoon after a busy day. Couldn't fault anything, exceptional hospitality.

We spent the last three nights of a three week holiday here. The bedroom was extremely spacious and comfortable and was very quiet at night being at the back of the hotel. It's a 10 minute walk from the centre and the cliff path walk to the Whale Shack is a must. A good selection of breakfast options too. The...
