We spent 10 days here, although we had no sea view / direct access to the beach, location is excellent to reach the beach, as well as all the other attractions around the Hermanus area and it is easy to get back to Cape Town. The kitchen area offered all the amenities needed for breakfast and coffee breaks, but we...

This is the second time we have stayed at Hornbill House and it lived up to the previous good experience we had. Only one negative comment is the open shower which tends to splash over most of the bathroom floor when taking a shower. A glass panel to enclose this at the bottom would be great!

The flat was very spacious and clean. 'The kitchen is well equipped with a large fridge, oven etc. The bedroom had a very comfortable bed and the view outside to all the plants was very pretty. The flat is 3km from Hermanus and therefore within easy reach.

A warm welcome. Room excellent and cozy. Everything a traveler needs. Nothing lacking No creaking roof or other night sounds. Thus a very peaceful sleep The mat in front of the TV can be a little dangerous as it moves around a bit too easy. It can be a safety hazard Thanks for the free bottle of wine Will definitely...

The place and the room are beautiful, decorated with good taste, the indoor garden is very nice, the staff is very friendly and helpful, they recommended us a restaurant with good food and great view (the "Rock" or something). Perfect spot in Hermanus!

Stayed with my husband and parents-in-law for 2 nights in unit 4, the family unit. All rooms are very spacious and nicely decorated, since Hornbill House also contains a gallery and gift shop (which you should REALLY visit!!). The kitchen is well enough equipped for cooking a basic meal, which we did. Owner Marelise is very sweet and helpfull, not...

Lovely quirky place to stay. There's a couple of restaurants/breakfast places nearby that are good and a great wine shop nearby but it is outside of Hermanus so you do need a car. Really clean and well kitted out. The welcome wine left by the owner was delicious. More relaxing than a b&b

Hornbill House was one of the best choices that me and my husband have made in our trip through the eastern coast of South Africa. Marelise is very welcoming and made us feel home, giving us some tips about Hermanus and being very kind. Also, the hotel is very charming and the room is exactly as it's shown on the...
