We spent two nights at the Roundhouse. There was a lot for us to be happy with - The design of the building with the rooms downstairs and the breakfast room and balcony with jacuzzi two floors above! A peaceful and tranquil location. A spacious room with a lounge/kitchenette. A great selection for breakfast served at a very convenient time....

On our trip through South Africa we stayed one night in the Roundhouse. Our room was clean and spacious. There is a whirlpool on the terrace, from which you can have a very nice view to the sunset. There are some offers to do shark diving or cycling tours but I am not sure what else you can do. The...

When we chose to stay in Gansbai over Hermanus we were a little apprehensive, however our experience with the roundhouse guesthouse was unmatched! It is like a home away from home. The owner is very warm and well connected. He went out of his way to make us feel comfortable and handle reservations for restaurants, shark cage diving and whale...

Exploring the Cape Coast found me in Gansbaai - wild, rocky coastline, quite off the usual tourist routes. The Warm welcome and beautiful views at the Roundhouse made it worthwhile. Great breakfast on the top deck is a must. Room was comfortable, although the dark decor could do with an update.

We stayed one night because we had a shark cage dive the next morning. Because we had to leave very early in the morning there was no time to have breakfast, but the room had a fridge and coffee and tea making facilities, so we could make our own breakfast, no problem. The jacuzzi on the roof looks very cool...

Spent the weekend at the Roundhouse for my birthday. It was an absolute pleasure. Staff was friendly and the breakfast was good. Location of the Jacuzzi on the upper deck with the view of the sea and sunset, priceless. Will definitely go back.

Convenient, friendly and cosy place to lodge in Hermanus. The friendly owners will give you tips on what to see and do there. The house is located right by the cliff path, which invites you to a stroll along the scenic coastline.

Great experience. Easy to find. We showed up later than the normal check in time, and owner was very accommodating. My kids enjoyed the pool table, and would have enjoyed the hot tub and pool had we been able to stay longer than just a quick overnight stay. House was clean.

From the friendly reception to the guided tour. It was an amazing place to stay, beautiful ocean views, quite and relaxed. It is a stones throw away from great pubs and the beautiful see. Will be making this a firts of many visits.

We had a lovely stay at the Roundhouse, guesthouse is beautiful, will definitely return. Only issue really was that the couple we travelled with were vegetarians, they opted for Vege sausages on the first mornings breakfast, when it came to the second mornings breakfast they had run out - if I had guests who were vegetarians I would have made...
