Excellent room and great breakfast . Hermanus town was 1.5 Kms away along the cliff top path but being off season all the shops were shut by 6pm and only a few restaurants were open. East to get a taxi to take us back to the guest house - not wise to walk back after dark!

Thanks for a nice room, a gorgeous garden, a great breakfast and the best hostess! She was absolutely helpfull and ready to solve any doubts and needs. We could use the dining/sitting room and garden for a late drink or a nice chat at night without disturbing other hosts.

I had read about the House on Westcliff and booked in advance from the UK. We were looking for simple, comfortable, with a good breakfast. Thats exactly what you get! Tremendous value helped by a weak Rand made this even better. A trip down to the centre of town gives you access to lively restaurants and cafe's with fantastic views... More

We had a most pleasant stay at House on Westcliffe. The property is well situated for walks on the cliff path, restaurants and the lively shopping centre of Hermanus. The host was very welcoming and we had a superb breakfast in the morning. The accommodation is well equipped and there are also very nice touches like sherry for a night... More

We liked it a lot at the House on Westcliff. Perfect for a hike on the boardwalk, for a nice lunch or dinner in the nice restaurants at the new harbour and to discover Hermanus. You get a great breakfast in the morning, on your room a nice surprise is waiting for you.
