We stumbled upon Cliff Cottage after knocking on several other BnB doors looking for the perfect combination of ambiance and price, and we couldn't believe our luck. Dot & Chucks place was as charming as they are hospitable, tucked away from but well-within walking distance of the town center, just across the street from the cliffs overlooking the sea. Our...

We recently made a repeat visit to Cliff Cottage where Dot and Chuck maintained the high standards of the previous one. We had a problem with our hire car and Dot swiftly and efficiently arranged a replacement car for us as we had difficulty contacting the company using a British mobile. An added feature from last time is the provision... More

Everything was beautiful decorated and clean. On arrivel we were warmly wellcommed by Dot and Chuck. They made us feel at home and had good advice for us. The breakfast... More

This was my second visit to Cliff Cottage and like the time before, Dot and Chuck were the best hosts ever. The rooms were spotless and spacious. The location is perfect. You can practically touch the cliffs. I can't recommend this place enough, not only for the hospitality of Dot and Chuck, but for the lovely atmosphere and great location!!

This was our second stay with Dot and Chuck, a natural choice for us, given the welcome we experienced on our previous trip. A delightful couple, for whom nothing was too much trouble. This time, we occupied one of the garden rooms, which was spotless and very comfortable. Breakfast was served in the garden and was pure delight. I would... More

If you want to breathe in the "champagne air" in the beautiful environment of Hermanus, this is the place to stay. A wonderful family atmosphere in a large, walled-in, safe sanctuary of a garden. As you lie on the chaise longue, listening to the sea, in the protection of the surrounding mountains, with a book and maybe a glass of... More
