Unfortunately we only stayed for one night in this beautiful English styled cottage. Brian and Leoni were perfect hosts. Brian arranged a shark cage dive for us the following morning and provided us with all necessary information. They even arranged delicious fruit to go, since we had to leave very early in the morning. Rooms are spacious, clean and fully... More

This place makes you almost feel like you're coming home. Although this is not the feeling you want to have during your holiday, we liked it. Big rooms, good bed, very nice hosts and walking distance to the village. The hosts gave us some good advice for a restaurant and made us a great omelet in the morning! Go here!

I couldn't have asked for better hosts. Brian & Leonie were extremely kind & beyond accommodating. The property is clean with sufficient amenities & they provide a tasty breakfast every morning. The property is approximately 10min (perhaps less) walking distance from the downtown area, which works well if you don't have a car or simply wish to walk. There are... More

Brian and Leoni are the perfect hosts. They truly care, but also have the rare sensitivity to judge how much contact each guest wants. Our room was lovely, with exceptionally comfortable beds, and a beautiful living room all to ourselves. The location is perfect, close to everything, but a little removed, and therefore quiet and peaceful. The morning walks along... More

Very comfortable and stylish B&B. Friendly hosts who make you feel at home. Highly recommend Cliff Cottage. Will definitely return. In the heart of Hermanus. Close to popular restaurants, main village and opposite walkway.

We had a wonderful stay, thanks to Brian and Leoni's warm hospitality! The room was full of character, with wooden floors, large lounge area, and crisp linen. The garden offers a pretty tranquil setting under the trees. We will definitely be back!

Dot and Chuck's home became ours for two nights when we stayed recently.The cottage is full of character with peaceful gardens, original sash windows and beautiful furniture. We felt very safe during our stay and all slept very well in very comfy beds. Allow plenty of time to enjoy Chucks breakfast and speak to Dot who is extremely helpful and... More

Both rooms were very comfortable and decorated beautifully. Great and safe location close to Hermanus . Enjoyed Chucks breakfast and Dot was a hoot . I felt like I wanted her to sit down... More

Chuck and Dot run a really good B&B. Friendly and informal with lots of tips on how to make the most of Hermanus. Comfortable room with lots of great little touches. We felt at home and able to chill out.
