My friend and I stayed two nights in the guesthouse and enjoyed our stay very much! The rooms are very nice and the service was great! I would love to come back to Hermanus and to the Dorpshuys guesthouse.

I guess Hermanus, on the shore of Walker Bay, South Africa, really is known for its whale watching (mid July - early December) only. The views right from the coast can be spectacular. Last Sunday we saw many of these animals playing around, with the occasional jumps and movements above water. Even at night, while going for dinner, two whales... More

Our stay in the Hermanus Dorpshuys was an absolute pleasure, made perfect by the owner, Cecilia who is passionate about the area of Hermanus and will do everything to make your stay perfect. Breakfast served by Cecilia and Koos was amazing.

Another wonderful stay, and as promised last time we stayed 4 nights. Dorpshuys is so functional, spacious, quiet, quality beds and towels, and luxury bathroom accessories. The house is spotlessly clean. The breakfasts are a delight. The whole place has a touch of style without being over the top. Every time you use something in the room, such as cups,... More

I am on my way home after spending last night at Dorpshuys. I had read many good reviews in TA and wanted to try it. What a delightful house and a wonderful couple the owners.

The accomodation was superb and the service lovely. We were scared to use the towels they were so clean. No expense was spared in the amenities with lovely luxurious products. I had hand washed a few things. They were removed from the room, dried and returned. Our wine we had in the room from wine tasting was placed on a... More

The owners are very kind and helpful. They booked both our dinner reservation and our whale watching tour. We arrived late in the day and Cecillia scrambled to get us onto a boat tour. We made it just in time, thanks to her! It is clear that the owners, Cecillia and Koos, care about their guests. The room was very,... More

This charming B&B is in a quiet part of Hermanus, within walking distance to the bay. On our first night, many whales were visible as we strolled along the cliff walk toward restaurants in town. Our room was immaculate, and furnished with everything one could need. Cecilia is very friendly and attentive to her guests. Her breakfasts are delicious. We... More
