Weekend getaway for R&R with a friend -- this was superb accommodation. Personally, we loved the "no kids under 10" rule as it was so quiet and peaceful. Rooms clean and lovely, fantastic breakfast and idyllic views of ocean from the deck. Appreciated the location which is in easy walking distance of the village. Our only issue was wifi that...

We were fortunate to spend 1 night at Pelagus and loved it! The room was super cute and cosy. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We felt very safe and the location is excellent. The house itself is beautiful. Definitely worth more than we paid...Would absolutely go back!

This B&B is on the rocks in Hermanus. If you want to do whale watching, here's the place to stay. Very neat, clean bedroom and en suite. Excellent breakfast, one of the best we ever had anywhere in the world. Beautiful antiques and romantic atmosphere. Friendly staff and lots of safe parking. Will stay here again, especially winter season, as...

We booked on a short notice through booking.com and had the luck to get the upstairs apartment for 4 adults. The apartment is really beautifully decorated (as is the whole house) and Bronwyn's welcome was so friendly. We felt immediately at home - true South African style ! I mentioned at the time of the booking that we celebrate my...

OK, we do have to share but it seems very quiet at the moment! We had a small complaint about original room but the following day were moved to another (much better) room. Excellent service! This is in Nautilus House which is a touch more modern e.g. Showers in rooms as opposed to Victorian bath. Breakfasts are freshly cooked -...

My wife and I stayed here on the way out to Plettenberg Bay in late December 2014. Unfortunately it rained the entire time we were in town so I can't attest to the beautiful views from the property although given the right conditions, I imagine they would be nice. The service was prompt and helpful and the included breakfast was...

We had the front upstairs room with balcony overlooking the ocean which was a lovely space to view whales if there where any around. The room was showing signs of age and was quite scuffed and tired including the bathroom although the roll top bath was very comfy. Filling in breakfast order cards each day for the following days breakfast...

You were furnished with a discounted rate of R1500.00 per night (the normal rate is R2050.00 per night). During your 3 night stay with us, neither yourself nor your husband mentioned your disappointment about...
