We stayed in the starfish cottage and had a wonderful few days. The owners name is Guy, and he's so sweet he even drove along behind us on our first night to be sure we found the restaurant that we were trying to find. The rooms are decorated in soft seaside colors and have everything you need. Wonderful place and... More

We stayed in the Seagull room which was both spacious and well equipped. Furthermore the bed was of excellent quality. The owner was also informative and breakfast ( only R17! ) was perfect. This B&B should be an example for other lesser B&B's that offer lesser accommodation for higher rates. This was the best B&B we stayed in during our... More

Thank you for such a great room at Anchors Rest. We took the family suite as it was the only room left, but we were so surprised at how massive it was. Beautiful decor, a massive bathroom, great shower, and an extra twin bedroom. I would have liked to have stayed a lot longer. Really recommended!

As I have to visit Hermanus rather frequently, I've tried various places to stay. On my last two trips, I read the positive comments about Anchor's Rest and stayed here both times. On my first trip I stayed in a smaller room with shower, but prefer a bath tub in winter, and therefore opted for a bigger room that cost... More

By far the best place to stay in Hermanus, outstanding rooms and the most wonderful hosts, guy and Hillary. Have visited 3 times now and will only ever stay there whilst in Hermanus. Convenient location and spoilt for choice on what room to have as they are all superb.

Anchor's Rest is ideally situated for Hermanus - easy access to the beach walks and a few streets back from the main road to make you feel like you are away from the town itself. My lodgings consisted of a good size bedsitter with a well equipped alcove kitchette. The bathroom more than met my needs. The staff were friendly... More

Guy and Hilary (the owners) were extremely welcoming and helpful. 'Seagulls' the loft room that we stayed in was lovely. The room was spacious, clean and very well decorated. You get great value for money staying at Anchors Rest and if we are ever in Hermanus again we will definitely be staying again.

Anchors Rest was lovely. We were greeted on entry by Guy who kindly showed us to our room (the honeymoon loft, can't remember the name). For the price, the room couldn't be faulted. The access to the pool was great, meant we could cool down during the day. My only concern was the water in the shower (seemed to be... More

Thank you so much for taking the trouble to write a review of Anchor's Rest - we do appreciate receiving feedback. The salt water shower is a bit of a puzzle as all the water in the unit comes from 1 water cylinder but we checked it out just in case - happily there was no salt (only the salt... More
