An ideal spot for travellers looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of mainstream accommodation. Outstanding service and beautiful, simple (yet effective!) rooms with great views made 78th on 5th the perfect location for our trip to Hermanus and surrounds. Hosts José and Ton along with their super-friendly staff are to be highly complimented. We'll definitely be back!

From our arrival until our departure our charming hosts ensured that our stay will be a memorable one. Our rooms were fantastic as was the view from our bedroom and balcony. The breakfasts were creative and very tasty. We will definitely recommend this remarkable home away from home.

Spacious rooms with continental feel, hosts friendly and very helpful with lots of knowledge and history of the area. It is an out of town centre B&B, with short drive to many attractions, however Voelklip beach, Grotto beach plus few restaurants are within walking distance from the B&B.

My husband and I were really looking forward to our stay here. The friendly staff lived up to expectation. As this is a 3* rated accommodation, we didn't expect luxury and just the basics. I would have rated this place a 3 but due to the stinking drains in the bathroom I am rating this a 2. Every time we... More

The staff and hosts were very helpful and attentive. we had the corner "suite" with a slightly dated kitchen but it was very large and comfortable. The bed and linen were especially comfortable and it was a delight to use the large corner balcony. After a hard day sight seeing it was a pleasure to return to the room. The... More

This was lovely accommodation. Large, clean, well decorated rooms, very comfortable lounge, well-stocked kitchen, parking, excellent WiFi, great location. Plenty of hot water in the shower (did not use the bath), safe to lock up valuables, little outside patio and private garden for BBQ, breakfast was excellent!

We had been there a couple of years ago and wondered whether the quality had remained on the same high level. And YES it had. The advice we received was appreciated. Breakfast, as before, was a little jewel and if, the wheather permittiing, served on the balcony gave us a great feeling.
