Cecilia and Koos Pretorius are wonderful people and there is no better place to stay in Hermanus. The rooms are lovely (and some even have two showers!) and very clean, the garden with the little pool is beautiful and the breakfast delicious. But above all, it is the warm hospitality of the hosts that made our stay so memorable. They... More

We had to make a stop over prior to our departure from South Africa and decided to spend the night in Hermanus. The Dorpshuys was just the perfect choice. Warm welcome, great rooms and very helpful owners. Assisted with a last minute restaurant reservation in the nearby town centre. Had a hearty South African breakfast before departure. We're sorry to... More

We spent 3 nights here on our Garden Route Trip last month. Cecilia was most welcoming and nothing was too much trouble to arrange. Attention to detail here was excellent and there was adequate parking at the property. The bedrooms are light and airy and very comfortable. However, there is a lack of air conditioning which was felt during our... More

Thank you very much for your time and effort to review your stay with us. We are glad that you had an excellent stay.

My wife and I very much enjoyed our stay here. Everything was spotless and the situation was a delight. Everything was catered for excellently and we particularly enjoyed our breakfasts! The room we had was on the corner, allowing us accessinto a small courtyard - an additional bonus. We warmly recommend this guesthouse and, on our next trip to Hermanus,... More

The house is situated in such a beautiful area. It is very quiet with nearly no traffic passing by and it has a very nice and enjoyable garden. Me and my husband only stayed for one night but would certainly like to come back and stay longer. Everything was spotless clean and a delicious breakfast was served. We booked the... More

My husband and I had a wonderful night here in February. We were given a very warm welcome and well as the offer of a glass of sherry on arrival. Our bedroom was immaculate, beautifully furnished with a huge bathroom! Although we didn't use it the small pool looked so inviting, beautifully landscaped and complete with sun loungers with comfortable... More

We were welcomed in a very friendly manour, the lady helped us to find a restaurant for the evening - after the 5th attempt we had success. The house and our room looked very - in a positive manour - old fashioned. The furniture and decor looked good + were not cheap. Beds were good, large bathroom with good pressure... More

We stayed only for 2 days but would love to come back for longer. Cecilia and Koos are very nice and helpful hosts, they advised us on where to eat and what to see in Hermanus and vicinity.

Thoroughly enjoyed the scenery and amenities & had a beautiful view of the mountains from the window. The guesthouse is neatly kept and the service is excellent with very warm and welcoming patrons. The food was excellent and well presented. We thoroughly enjoyed the premises and will certainly be back.
