This was our second return stay at Hermanus Dorpshuys. I really did not think it could get better, but Koos and Cecelia, our wonderful hosts, outdid themselves once again! Always attentive without being intrusive. To sum up Hermanus Dorpshuys: Service - Excellent A+++, Cleanliness - Spotless, Atmosphere - Inviting, Quiet & Peaceful, Breakfasts - Delectable.

The historic house, my elegant room with a beautiful bathroom, elegant furniture and so very knowledgeable hosts = It is above any "guesthouse" and has such a welcoming atmosphere. Im not a breakfast person and skip it most of the time, but I'm sure it's very delicious.

I can highly recommend Hermanus Dorpshuys. While we were there for only a night, we wish we could have extended our stay longer. Cecilia and Koos are wonderful hosts and Cecilia provided so much information about restaurants and whale watching options. The room was beautiful and comfortable to stay in. We hope to visit again!

We enjoyed our three night stay in room number 5. We slept very well on the comfortable bed. The breakfast was enjoyable and satisfying and we did not need to have much more during the day. We visited the market and found it very interesting. We also did some shopping and did some sight seeing in the town. We would... More

I must admit I am a repeat guest at Hermanus Dorpshuys. You may therefore conclude that on previous occasions I felt very comfortable and well looked after. This stay was no exception. What is exceptional, though, time and again, is what wonderful hosts Lady Cecilia and her husband Koos are. Form the very first until the very last moment they... More

Nothing can be faulted with this establishment. Roos and Cecilie, as hosts, we're welcoming and ever ready to assist us in anything we wanted to do. Breakfast is a treat. The presentation and cleanliness of the establishment is excellent. We cannot rate it highly enough.

Hermanus Dorpshuys is a beautiful guesthouse in a quiet area of Hermanus, and in walking distance to the town centre. The rooms are modern and well maintained with excellent bathroom, good beds and working wifi. We experienced great hospitality by the owners.
