We were lucky and our hosts were the very nice two ladys Jo and Ann. However, the handling of the booking was made by Chuck and he was also very professional and helpful. The Cottage is in a good shape, very nicely run by Jo and Ann and everyting was handled relaxed so we really enjoyed our stay.

We stayed for two nights in this lovely B&B. We chose the garden room as it was detached and private. The room was well appointed, very clean and luxurious. We had a large en-suite bathroom with shower and slipper bath. The breakfast was excellent with a choice of inside or outside seating. The owners were away at the time and... More

What a wonderful treat. Whilst Chuck and Dot were having their holiday we were hosted by Josephine and Anne! Cliff Cottage is a nice, warm, cosy and charming place at the cliffs overlooking the Hermanus bay; a short stroll of 150 m brings you to the Sea-shore for a beautifull scenic outlook over the ocean... And the whales :-) What... More

We stayed one night at Cliff Cottage in October. Dot and Chuck weren't there at the time. Loved the location. It was great to be able to walk along the cliff top into town. We saw lots of whales. The room was perfectly adequate. Not luxurious by any means but quite pleasant. The breakfast was pretty ordinary compared to other... More

Stayed two peaceful nights at Cliff Cottage and couldn't be happier. The hospitality was warm, helpful and friendly and the breakfasts were delicious. Good location, close to town central, but right on the cliff path where there are wonderful views and a lovely walk. We definitely will book again when next in Hermanus.

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
