We only stayed in this guesthouse for one night, but wished it was for longer. The owners Stefan and Nikki were very welcoming, and even brought breakfast forward with our whale watching trip early the next morning. The location is perfect near to the ocean walk, and a short walk into town. The breakfast Stefan cooked for us was also superb and probably the best on our trip

Our room had a very modern interior and was perfectly clean. The owners are very friendly and helpful. They gave us some good tips for the surrounding area.

The highlight was the amazing breakfast. You can see that he is a very experienced cook.

We found the accomodation excellent and the advice given by the owners very helpful. The breakfasts were exceptional. It was obvious that the owner was a highly experienced cook. We heard from him that he had trained in the UK

My husband and I recently visited Hermanus and were lucky enough to stay at the Penguino Guest house. Nikki and Stefan are extremely hospitable and helpful, providing us with advice and insight as to where we should make our stops ensuring our visit was a pleasant and memorable one. Nikki helped sort our booking with the whale charter making sure we are able to secure our spot. The room we stayed in was very clean and comfortable. Stefan's cooking is brilliant!!!! If you looking for a clean, friendly, awesome place to stay at on your visit to Hermanus... Penguino guesthouse is the place. Thanks to both Nikki and Stephan for the great hospitality, Jacky and Johan.

Great hospitality .

We were recommended by a friend to stay at Penguino House and I am telling you we were thrilled. We received a warm welcome by Stefan who showed us around the facilities and our room. It was well decorated, clean and had all the equipments you may need. We recently got engaged and they opened up a bottle of bubble to celebrate the occasion. Stefan and Nikki cooked the most wonderful braai for us served with some great wine from the region. They even made the effort to create a vegan grilled dishe for my fiance. It was a beautiful evening. They told us great stories and they know how to make you feel home. Stefan also made the effort to call the Shark Diving company to ensure the weather condition were good enough. There is a beautiful path on the cliff located 5 min walking distance.
I would highly recommend the Penguino guesthouse !
