My partner and I attended a wedding in Hermanus and we desperately needed a little time away. We had a very gracious check in. Aloe House was superb!! Lesley and John were the perfect hosts. The spacious room was ideal, it had a separate living area that had a sliding door. This was perfect because I'm an early riser. Ample...

Great location, room very clean and well equipped. Easy walk to shops and restaurants. The breakfasts were wonderful and we loved the homemade shortbread which was supplied in our room with tea and Coffe making facilities. John and Leslie are the perfect hosts, they made our stay very enjoyable and memorable. Thank you both. Martyn and Wendy

We stayed with our 4 children (all under 10) in the family suite. The accommodation was fabulous. The hosts were friendly and welcoming. Excellent home-made biscuits in the room! Breakfast is basic but good. Order your cooked meal as soon as you get to the breakfast room, as it takes a while to be prepared for you. Definitely recommend this...

Needed a one night stay over between holiday destinations. What a fantastic and tranquil place. John and Lesley made us feel at home from the first "hallo". Thank you so much. We stayed in the family unit and it was extremely comfortable for the 5 of us, all creature comforts included.

Me and my husband stayed here for 3 nights in December 2016. We loved it. Lesley and John were sweet and caring. We really felt welcome. The guest house only have 5 rooms which makes it cosy and intimate. We had the pool to ourselves every day. I really recommend Aloe Guest House to anyone visiting Hermanus.
