We arrived at our 2 night stopover accommodation mid afternoon. The car park was already quite full and I managed to negotiate the car into a space at the side of the building. Our meet and greet was efficient but not overly friendly, being passed over to another staff member to complete the show round. A fine building which has...

I loved this hotel because it had sea views,plus the bedroom were big with small seating area. Lovely large sitting room for guest but sofas need replacing. Port and sherry offered free,but no bar in hotel only mini bar in bedroom. Hermanus is about a 15 minute walk. We eat in the Fishermans cottage ( fab food ) and Burgundys...

We loved our stay here in August last year. Perfect hosts, magnificent ocean views, beautiful breakfast and wonderful location. Couldn't ask for more. Oh and secure parking. It has a stately home feel without being pretentious and if we had more time, I would have loved to stay another night. Within a pretty stroll along the coast to Hermanus town,...

We were only here for one night but wished it had been more. Set on the cliff top a few minutes from town our room overlooked the sea and was beautifully appointed with its own balcony. It even had a separate little sitting room. The breakfast was really delicious and the service excellent.

Great guesthouse in Hermanus, about 7-10 minutes walk from the town centre. The back of the guesthouse opens straight on to the cliff path, a 5km walk from which whales can often be seen in the season (July-November inclusive). Room was large and comfortable, breakfast excellent wit a selection from the cold buffet followed by a hot breakfast.

Saw this place in 2007 when first visiting Hermanus and vowed that if we returned this is where we would stay and so we did, and it did not dissappoint. It is warm, friendly, well appointed, close to town, right on the coast with direct access to the coastal path offering excellent walks. The rooms are spacious and bright offering...

Beautiful guesthouse and we were greeted with tea,coffee and cake on arrival. The views out over the cliffs and bay are beautiful and it is a lovely walk into Hermanus from the guesthouse along the cliff walk. If you are lucky you may spot a whale on the way. The staff and rooms are fantastic. We had 4 rooms in...
