Very pleasant and comfortable. Friendly staff and good food. Well situated within easy walking distance from town. Not much happening though as it is not whale watching season but still quite a few tourists around.

We are very happy that you had such a positive experience with us. Although the whales are with us for an amazing 6 months, there is plenty to do and see once they return to the Antarctic.

The Aloe Guest House offers an excellent price-performanceratio! The room was very nice furnished, spacious and bright and clean. The welcome friendly, the hints fabelous and the care really cordially. Old fashioned may be, but heartwarming! Breakfast left no wishes open. The distance to Hermanous is more than reasonable. When I left, I had this to every traveller well known...

Thank you for taking time to review us, Reto. We welcome your comments about the spaciousness and cleanliness of the rooms.

I stay in Hermanus from time to time and am often confronted by the high prices. I love Aloe, as it has everything you'd want: large spacious rooms which include a TV lounge section with kiddie sleeper couch, there is a pool, and the staff are extremely attentive. As the rooms are separate with access to the pool it has...

The Aloe Guest House is more like a five star hotel. Roy the manager made us most welcome and the rooms were of a very high quality with good views. The breakfasts were excellent and the dining room was set with magnificent views. When visiting Hermanus a great place to stay. Thanks Pete and Steve.

We spent 2 nights at aloe guest lodge and would have been happy to stay longer. The rooms are large and well-designed with a separate sitting area, the TV has a good selection of channels, wifi works well and there are free cookies and a fridge to keep your own drinks. We slept well. The garden and pool are attractive...

We stayed for a weekend in winter and were totally spoilled. Our hosts went out of their way to spoil us, the breakfast was delicious and the facilities in the rooms were great - great coffee, DSTv and wifi available. Nothing was too much trouble. Thank you John and Leslie - we will be back!
