The guesthouse was unbelievable, set right on the bay. Never did I think I would be sat on the sofa watching a baby whale in the bay. The finish of Schulphoek is beautiful managing to feel homely and luxurious all at the same time. The area is so peaceful and we enjoyed a walk along froggy pond walk whilst watching... More

We had 2 nights this summer in this fabulous Guest House; very quiet place located on the Seafront apart from Hermanus downtown, luxurious and large personnalized rooms, excellent food, the hostress is very kind and professional. A great place to stay, all is perfect . A place to recommend for short or longer stay.

The accommodation is spacious and luxurious, we wanted for nothing. The food and service were very good. Our hostess was friendly and accommodating, pointing us to all the sites in the area. Really worth a longer stay

What a lovely guesthouse the Schulphoek is! The host couple, Petro and Mannes, are warm and welcoming and I loved the idea of sitting down to dinner as a family with strangers. The wine cellar is out of my dreams. The rooms are beautifully decorated and spacious and each has a special touch. This is not your average hotel; this... More

We went to Schulphoek for my sister's bachelorette. It is a beautiful spot with such lovely rooms. The staff were so friendly and went out if their way to make it an extra special weekend. We all loved or stay and the food was amazing. I'd highly recommend this wonderful guest house.

A beautifully appointed guesthouse with a fantastic view of the bay. Rooms have Jacuzzis and enormous showers Quite possibly the best wine collection in the area. Staff unfailingly polite and fabulous food This guest house is not in Hermanus itself so is very quiet and scenic . Great for a weekend break. Petro and Mannes are wonderful hosts

This has got to be one of the most spectacular places we've stayed- anywhere. First of all, upon arrival we were served coffee, and then upgraded to the upstairs ocean-facing suite. OMG! We felt like we were in lives of the rich and famous. What a view and what a room. Huge comfortable bed, huge two person shower, jacuzzi tub,... More

We recently travelled to South Africa to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary and chose the Schulphoek as it was ideally situated on the coast - the Scallop Suite looked fantastic when we booked on the internet and did not fail to impress in anyway on our arrival. Petro greeted us with a glass of wine on our arrival and encouraged... More

This was a last minute booking because our original hotel cancelled on us and we are so grateful that it did otherwise we would have missed out on this amazing place. Petra's hospitality was second to none and the evening meal was fine dining at its best We chose to sit with the other guests and it was a thoroughly... More
