Sixteen Guesthouse on main Street exceeded my expectations. The proprietor, Anel, is hospitable without being gushing, over-the-top or intrusive. The rooms are spacious, especially for budget accommodation and the Hermanus village square and sea front is a short walk away. When I was staying there the guests were young or a bit-older-than-young couples from Europe. Good value and recommended.

Always a bit wary about B&B's but the quality of this place was beyond our expectations. beautifully decorated rooms with little lounges off the bedroom. Even though on the main street in Hermanus it was peaceful at night, and within walking distance of town centre. Breakfast, we had to state what time we wanted it in the morning, a little... More

It was a pleasant one night stay. Rooms are absolutely nice, and very close to restaurants and beachfront where you can actually watch the whales. Parking is very safe. One can walk as well to the beachfront.

Great location, an easy safe walk to restaurants and bars. Very near to the cliff walk where you can watch the whales from the shore. Nice and quiet at night for a restful sleep. The rooms are very tastefully decorated and spacious. There is a sitting area inside and a nice veranda outside. The rooms overlook a small garden with... More

Very pleasant one night stay here. Room was very nice, spacious and clean. Owner was very helpful indeed, and breakfast was very nice. We came in winter so it was a little chilly in the evening - bed was very warm with an electric blanket but in general the room was a little cool (even with heater). We slept very... More

Sixteen on Main offers easy access, big and well designed rooms and free parking. Owner/hostess Anel could not have been more helpful. Breakfast very satisfactory. Highly recommended place to stay in beautiful Hermanus.

We couldn't have been happier with our comfortable, well-appointed and spacious suites overlooking the swimming pool and garden at Sixteen Guesthouse on Main. Decorated to a high standard, the bathroom, bedroom and living area in the suite is the perfect for a relaxing stay. Anel, the owner made us very welcome and cooked a lovely breakfast for us which we... More

This is a gorgeous little property, superbly situated within walking distance of everything in Hermanus. The rooms are beautiful and the owner, Anel, could not be more charming. The breakfast was delicious and the grounds impeccably kept. Our only regret is that we had only booked for one night. Next time we are in South Africa, we will be sure... More
