Fabulous guest house, great facilities, impeccably clean. Lots of historical books, artefacts & the most beautiful grand staircase. Breakfast array ample & location great for a cliff top walk to harbour & through the quaint village. A visit to Creation Wines is a must - 20 minutes into the hill - lunch & 8 wine sample with your tapas. Ask...

Very spacious rooms is a big plus. About 10 minutes walk from the center of Hermanus. The hotel is located facing the sea so you can easily step out and walk along the beach walk looking for whales. Very nice lounge room with windows facing the ocean. Good breakfast. Very bad wifi connection is the only negative thing.

Fabulous place with lovely views. Great welcome and banter with Shane, the manager who was so helpful with booking dinner, taxis etc. Lovely ensuite room with shower over bath (should have requested room with shower, but we managed) Very comfortable bed and tasty breakfasts. Decor is wonderful but also feels homely and comfortable. Great to see the lovely honesty bar...

We had the best room, directly facing the sea, we could whale watch from the comfort of our very comfortable bed. Breakfast and breakfast staff all perfect. Lovely public areas made for comfort. Secure parking. Five minutes walk to town centre.

We stayed at Pelagus house for 3 nights in room 1 which overlooks the sea and is the largest I believe in the house, it was certainly worth having. We spotted a whale one morning whilst sitting on our balcony. It is just a short stroll into the centre and quite safe to do so. Breakfast was delicious and served...

This was a lovely guest house in a good location, walking distance from the town center. The rooms were spacious and clean, though one of them had a bath only, no shower. The breakfast provided by the guest house was delicious and plentiful. There is a pool, though it was a bit cold to use it! Internet was not good...

Stayed for 4 days at this beautiful guesthouse and found it to be just as excellent in service as it is in appearance. The upstairs balcony offers a magnificent view of the bay, while the room we occupied is spacious and tastefully decorated. The breakfasts are pre ordered and then a wide array of extras are on offer when you...

This guest house is really nice. The owners are very helpful and booked our trips. We were lucky to have room 1 which is the only room with a sea view. The view was fantastic. We could see the whales in the morning. Beautiful location. Hermanus is also a lovely town. My son had Room 2 and unfortunately could hear...
