We spent a weekend in Hermanus and stayed at Cliff Cottage. Dot and Chuck were very friendly and attentative. Our room was very clean and comfortable. Can definitely recommend.. We will be back! Dot and Chuck arranged our whale watching excursion . They also recommended B's steakhouse for a meal and we were very impressed.

Beautiful B&B, just as it is supposed to be! Fantastic breakfast, nice and very clean rooms and lovely hosts. Really enjoyed my stay. B&B is located a little outside city centre but close to the new harbour. 100m walk to the coastline to watch whales and dolphins passing by.

Firstly, this B&B is in De Kelders, not Hermanus. Secondly, whale watching is better in De Kelders....so stay here - it's a no-brainer. During breakfast there were 10 whales within 20 meters of the shore on which Cliff Lodge sits. It's a great B&B. Try to book the North Room if you can - it has its own balcony so... More

My husband and I enjoyed a relaxing three-night stay at Cliff Cottage. Chuck and Dot are wonderful hosts, and one is really made to feel at home. They are also well acquainted with Hermanus and the surrounding areas - hence an excellent source of information when deciding on activities. The B&B is well situated, just across the road from the... More

We had a wonderful stay at Cliff Cottage. Got terribly lost trying to find the B&B and Chuck was so patient and we had quite a good laugh afterwards. Rooms were comfortable, clean and furnished with taste. Chuck and Dot are lovely hosts, very helpful with finding a place to eat and they make you feel at home straight away,... More

Really enjoyed our time at Cliff Cottage. The accommodation was great, very comfortable, clean and well looked after (also had off street parking, which is a another plus!). We chose the garden cottage, which made for a very relaxing and peaceful weekend. The B&B itself is perfectly positioned, within walking distance of the town centre but just far enough away... More

I was here with a female friend, both of us from England. We arrived here late and it was like returning home! The house is a perfect family home. The room was cosy and clean with lovely pillows and an amazing bed. It was nice having tea and coffee in the room too. We both slept brilliantly here. The bathroom... More

As usual we travelled without reservations through the Cape region in February this year. In Hermanus we tried to get a room in B&Bs which we knew from the past, all full. Then we looked for alternatives, some nice but overpriced B&Bs were available,but we didn´t really like them. Finally we found the the ***star Cliff Cottage, a lovely place,... More

Staying here is like coming home to your mother's house. Its cozy, breakfast is hearty and the hosts are fantastic people. Although not luxurious it has everything you need. We stayed in the Garden cottage and loved the shower. The only thing I would like to ask for is for darker curtains, as I find it hard to sleep with... More
