From the moment we arrived until we left the lady (don't remember her name) taking care of us from check in, giving us information on things happening close by, serving us breakfast right up until we checked out was very friendly and always had a smile. Very warm welcome. The room was very large and spacious with its own private... More

Maryke greeted us very friendly when we arrived. Rose-Marie was also friendly and helpful. Room was very clean and spacious with a private balcony. Because it was our anniversary we got a free bottle of wine and chocolates in our bedroom, About a 5 minute walk to the beach. A nice pool to relax at night or early morning. Very... More

We stayed at the Amakhosi Guesthouse for one night on September 4th 2013 as the first stop on a short trip down the Garden Route. The guest house is located about a mile or so outside Hermanus in Sandbaai. The house is a very spacious, bright building with a pleasant garden. Our room was very comfortable, and the welcome we...

We spend the night a the guest house and the first good surprise was our upgrade, I ask a sea view so they upgraded us, so nice ! The room was enormous, nearly too big ;) with views and a lounge area with an African theme. Nicely decorated, the only disturbance was coming from the fridge, I just unplug it... More

Very nice and comfortable guesthouse. Very tastefully decorated rooms. Very good breakfast and very friendly service. We felt very welcome and had a very nice room on the ground floor with direct acess to the garden and pool.

This guest house is actually at Sandbaai, well out of Hermanus, and is let down by its location, which feels something like it’s on a British council estate. The owner lives in Germany, and the lady who stands in for him/her is preoccupied by her two other jobs and is always scurrying off to meetings or writing up minutes, so... More

We thank you for your comment. As we try to cater for everyones needs we will buy some double duvets just in case someone does not like the single duvets provided actualy per sleeping position. Most of our guests enjoy the almost new matresses. However, we are very sorry that, in this case, we were not able to satisfy your... More

I stayed four nights with my girlfriend and our son (10 months). I have been to a lot of guesthouses and the likes in South Africa(mostly western cape though) for the past two months, and I must say that I am impressed with our room and the place in general. It is situated in the Saandbaai area of Hermanus and... More

HodgyNorthumberland made a horrible and very unfear review. The guesthouse is great. Tranquil, peaceful with not too many people. 5 minute drive from the waterfront, a few minute walk to the beach. We had a Colonial Room (no.2 on the 2nd floor). Friendly stuff gave a basic explanation on 'what is where'. No 30 minutes ‘interrogation’ to show their respect... More

We stayed for 2 nights at this guest house, yes it is a little way from Hermanus, but if you have a car that is not a problem, a short distance from the guest house is the sea with a lovely walk along the coast, we had a very friendly greeting and shown to our room, the lady offered to... More

First the positives - It's cheap, it's clean And the continental part of the breakfast is ok. The location is not great, it is a good drive into hermanus and there is nothing going on in the immediate area. We had a very swift greeting with some random places pointed out, which we still have no idea what she was... More

We are very sorry for not meeting up to their expectations, truely. We just tried to help by providing the most actual information. However we would like to point out some unreasonable comments: 1. Our mattresses are some of the most expensive mattresses available in South Africa and almost in new conditions. 2. The size of our pool is 2,5... More
