We stayed for two nights. The owner Rolf was really good, he advised us of the best places to visit. A lovely clean and bright bungalow with nice rooms. The breakfast was good and a welcome change from the usual 'English Breakfast' that most owners think we Brits want all the time. Thoroughly recommend.

Rooms clean and spacious. You get a free guide with your stay, Rolf has very good tips for exploring the neighborhood. He tells you everything you need to know and please don't open your guides but just follow his advice,you won't regret! He loves Hermanus and so did we. Thank you so much Rolf; Wendy and Marc

We stayed just one night at Hortensia Lodge but found it very worth while. Rolf, the German owber is absolutely delightful and someone who really understands what real hospitality is all about. THe B & B has 4 rooms, they are lovely, not 5 star but for what you pay, very good value. Each room is clean, large, well apppointed... More

Hortensia Lodge is brilliantly situated, it's only a short walk to town or to the beach. After a day spent at the beach or seeing the many marvels of Hermanus I got back to the comfort of my cozy, bright room at the lodge. The garden is spectacular with all the hortensias, spacious and beautifully kept and the large pool... More

In the portfollio book, they said "ideally situated" and it is just true... we spend 2 nights in this very confortable guest house. Just near the city, but not too much. No need to go by car, just walk for the restaurants. Rolf knows what "welcome" means. The rooms are very confortable and it is very nice to sleep with... More

Had a very enjoyable stay at this guest house, well looked after by Rolf who was friendly and helpful. Contrary to the last reviewer, our room was a little small (and certainly didn't have a seperate sitting area), although perfectly adequate. But what really makes this a great place to stay and relax is the beautifully maintained garden and pool... More

We stayed here in April 2008 for one night. We had stayed in many guesthouses during our South African tour and this one impressed us for a few reasons: the rooms were spacious. The double my wife and I stayed in had a couch and sitting area. There was also plenty of room to unpack and reorganize your luggage. The... More
