We certainly enjoyed our couple of days at FrancolinHof, the rooms were large, airy and incredibly well kept. The dining area and food served was awesome, this opened out onto an open patio area which was common to the adjacent rooms. From the dining room we could look out over the mountains and could see the many birds and other...

Many thanks for making the time to write this review. We do appreciate it. It's always great to show off Hermanus to our guests from over the mountain - different pace and different kind of special. Thank you for coming to stay and I do hope you'll visit Hermanus again in the not too distant future. Warm regards from Jean...

Dear John and Anne Thank you so much for this lovely review - we enjoyed having you all to stay. I'm pleased you found the information in our books helpful and that didn't get up from breakfast hungry!

We took some friends to stay with us and we all had a wonderful time here. We were greeted by Jean with a welcome pot of tea, and then shown to our spacious rooms where there was even a complimentary bottle of wine waiting for us each. The rooms were on the ground floor and each had a little patio...

Dear John and Anne Thank you for this lovely review and I'm pleased that our suggestions were helpful - and the tuk-tuk. My car was giving problems last week and I used it then too - it's tempting to feel 'on holiday' more often! Today the whales were putting on a wonderful show and seemed to be enjoying the glorious...

This beautiful guesthouse has great big comfy rooms upstairs with a gorgeous view of the beach and the mountains. I absolutely loved the fynbos surrounding us, with a lovely garden behind the property. We took a beach walk along the promenade just before the rain set in and were treated to a few whales playing in the waves. Breakfast was...

We booked on recommendation and were delighted with the rooms. Jéan and Mary gave us a warm welcome and fabulous breakfasts. The house is close to Grotto Beach with a lovely cliff/shoreline walk through the Ferkloof Nature Reserve Cliff Path. At the back of the house is a nature reserve leading to the mountain behind and to the side/front, wonderful...
