Fantastic B&B, immaculate, great location and the breakfast was Devine. With we had stayed for longer. 10 min walk to the centre and a shirt 10 minute drive to the Whales Tours. Hermanus itself if beautiful, lots of nice restaurants and walks - and of course the whales if you are lucky to catch a glimpse.

Read about this place in lonely planet and booked in. The most beautifully decorated, modern yet quaint guest house. Staff couldn't have been nicer. A small walk to town. Rooms really spacious and decorated in great taste.. have yet to have breakfast but looks very tasty. The pool area is small but adequate.

We chose pottingshed for a few reasons, one being itvwas close to family we were visiting for Christmas and second it was well priced. I was a little disappointed at the size of the room, we had a lot of luggage as we were here on a long holiday. Staff were excellent.

Everything was perfect - the outside patio very private which suited us very much - but the room very hot during the time we were there. The fan supplied did not quite do the trick. This would be a very nice room to stay in winter. This would be our choice in future to stay - would recommend as it...

We stayed in the loft unit with the lovely private roof top deck. Decor and facility is very nice. Only conplaint... no air conditioning. Being a loft room it is inclined to get rather hot in summer. Please invest in aircon for happier guests. Also pillows need replacing.

We were fortunate enough to spend 2 nights at the Potting Shed whilst on our journey up the garden route. The location is fantastic. Just a 10 minute walk into the main town in Hermanus, along the coastal path. The rooms were modern, clean and spacious. The breakfast was wonderful, although we did only have the pancakes (home made) every...

We only spent one night at The Potting Shed, but would have been happy to stay more. Spotlessly clean, a fantastic shower, friendly staff and owners. Our room had its own little outdoor area with table and chairs and well of use of the swimming pool. A short walk into town and the cliff too walk.

I spent one night in the Potting Shed. We arrived in Hermanus with no prebooked accommodation. Someone recommended the Potting Shed and I spent a comfortable night there. I only wish I could have stayed longer but they were fully booked unfortunately. So next time I plan to spend time in Hermanus I will make sure to book in good...

Rooms were clean if small. The bathroom was especially tight. Not enough room for all guests to park. Breakfast was nice. a bit regimental with all the rules and regulations posted around the property.

The standard room you booked was the cheapest and therefore the smallest. For guests looking for extra luxury and space we suggest the Deluxe rooms or the Studio room with private deck. We have 6 rooms in total and 6 parking spaces - therefore, each guest is provided with a parking space. If guests don't park between the marked lines...
