We were checked into this rather shabby guesthouse by a cleaner who raced us through the communal areas of the guesthouse and thereafter into our room,without any explanation of the services or amenities. The room was sparsely furnished and the bed linen and duvet and pillows awful not to mention the bed which gave us a sleepless night. This is...

Stayed here for 3 nights , first 2 nights on an upper floor room and the final night in a ground floor room. The first floor rooms have the most amazing views over the bay and headland looking east. First class in every respect. The ground floor room had the same fitments etc but for us was just not the...

Beautiful guest house with a good pool overlooking the bay. A short walk into Hermanus for the restaurants. Their breakfasts are to die for, lots of fresh fruit and cooked too. Rooms very clean and large. Ate in the Harbour Rock one evening, an excellent restaurant.

No one can fault the view probably the best in Hermanus. Breakfasts were excellent but room house keeping lets it down. No bath or shower mat, had to use towel and they were small and of inferior quality. We left them to be taken but they were replaced on towel rail after being used as foot mat,Tea, coffee was not...

We spent 3 days here & despite the stunning location & wonderful staff felt a little disappointed. The house is beautiful but needs a little TLC. The sunbed cushions & umbrellas were in need of replacing as was our terrace furniture. Our room was not always cleaned properly with dirty glasses being left & floor being unswept. This was the...

Magnificient quest house in Hermanus, just 10 minutes walk from the center. Fantastic sea view and a possibility to have a beautiful walk along the coast. Super rooms, really comfortable beds (even with electric warming possibility). Delicious, rich and varied breakfast including almost anything you can think of. Extremely helpful personnel who even sent sandals I forgot to the room...

We spent two nights here while touring South Africa, what a beautiful spot, we had two huge first floor rooms with gorgeous views and balconies and luxury bathrooms. The staff were all very helpful and friendly giving us lots of useful advice about the area. Breakfasts were plentiful and delicious. It was wonderful to step straight out of the hotel...

We arrived at our 2 night stopover accommodation mid afternoon. The car park was already quite full and I managed to negotiate the car into a space at the side of the building. Our meet and greet was efficient but not overly friendly, being passed over to another staff member to complete the show round. A fine building which has...
