We stayed at the Bamboo Guest House in August and it was a wonderful stay. The guesthouse is modern, clean and tastefully decorated - we stayed in the garden room which was lovely. Lovely bed & linens, great tea & coffee facilities, gorgeous shower and handy fridge in the room to keep your picnic cool for the cliff top walks!... More

Lovely place to stay! Carol was absolutely wonderful in assisting us during our stay. Modern decor and delicious breakfast! Perfectly located just 2 minutes out of the main town and a lovely stroll away from the beach. Can't wait to revisit.

Unfortunately we could only spend 2 days in Hermanus during our short visit to South Africa, but it was fantastic. Bamboo Guest House was first class, Sue and Jimmy were welcoming and friendly. They were very willing to offer recommendations of restaurants and things to do. The guest house is spacious, relaxing and very well located with wonderful views. The... More

I can recommend this guesthouse to everyone passing through Hermanus! Friendly hosts, great breakfast and the room was spotless clean! Great views of the mountain and a nice walk to town where you'll find lots of cute restaurants.

We only stayed for one night on our way to Wilderness but wish we'd stayed longer. The guest house is beautiful, the rooms lovely and Sue and Jimmy were great hosts and made a wonderful breakfast. They recommended a restaurant in town called lemon butta which was really good, we walked there which took about 20 mins and got the... More

Bamboo Guest House was excellent. Hosts were charming. They offered good local advice, a beer on checking in and conversation and wine one evening after dinner. The pool was nice as was the nicely landscaped back yard. The house is easy to find in a very upscale, safe neighborhood. Our sea view room had a great view of the secured... More
