78ton5th in Hermanus is one of the best kept secrets in the beautiful coastal town. Upon arrival we were greeted by friendly and enthusiastic staff. The rooms are very beautiful with majestic mountain and ocean views. The room is fitted with air conditioning and the bathrooom is very comfortable. The only complaint we found is that the wifi signal is... More

Such a wonderful time. Jose is extremely friendly and very accommodating. The staff are also very pleasant and it is ensured that all of your needs are met. Will definitely be back. Definitely one of the better guesthouses out there and exceptional value for money.

My fiance and I had the pleasure of staying at 78 on 5th during what must have been the hottest 2 days of the year in March 2015. We escaped the terrible fires that were blazing in the Cape and spent two amazing days in Hermanus. Minimal tourists, No schoolkids and absolutely NO traffic, just bliss. This venue is easy... More

We stayed at 78th over the past weekend as a surprise trip away for my boyfriends birthday. We originally only booked 2 nights but by day 2 we were so in love with the little town and 78th's hospitality and asked to stay another night. After some reshuffling of arrangements, the manager, Jose(incredible cook!), was able to squeeze us in.... More

The hosts are warm and welcoming, and the staff very friendly. We were upgraded to a 2 bedroom suite with lovely large view terrace. Well prepared 2 course set menu for breakfast is a nice change from the usually average buffet. With their magnificent art collection, this is definitely not for badly behaved children. Breathtaking mountain reserve forms the backdrop... More

The service and facilities were great. Some attention needed with the toilet which has no ventilation....this is quite important ! The toilet aside, an excellent review ! The location is fantastic, close to the beach and shopping amenities.

Only here for one night. We had a large room at the rear ground floor looking up to the mountain. Clean, spacious and comfortable - what more could you ask for? Breakfast was plentiful and served at the table looking out to the ocean. Very happy to recommend others.
