I have been in Hermanus Guesthouse for 8 days, it was excellent. Hermanus is wonderful and so is the Guesthouse and all staff. I have found new friends there, wonderful people and when I go back to Hermanus, then there. Excellent rooms, breakfast made with love and everything was just amazing. I just can recomend this Guesthouse to everybody.

I decided to treat my girlfriend to a weekend away and usually it can be tough to find the perfect places for accommodation. Hermanus Guesthouse was the perfect choice as it provided romance, warmth from the hosts and the rooms were just set up amazing. The host was a friendly lady who was very friendly, helpful and looked after us.... More

The visit we had to the 'Hermanus Boutique Guesthouse' was a delightful experience. I found it charming and the manageress could not do more to make us feel warmly welcomed in the cooler month of July. Underfloor heating warm AC and electric blankets. Complimentary coffee and sherry and advice on so much where to eat and where best to see... More

Came here on honeymoon from cape town. Very professional and friendly service. The main living area is so beautiful, and they always have a fireplace warming the room up. No complaints from me, ill surely be back.

We were enormously delighted in the beauty and serenity of this guesthouse. The hosts were superb and they went out of there way to treat and serve us like royalty. The interior is extremely beautifully done and an atmosphere of peace and serenity filled the place. We live in Ireland, are regular travelers and in my 60 years this was... More

The staff made us feel at home and carried us on their hands. Lovely, comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. love the fact that you can walk to town with the cliff path, and we discovered the lovely tidal pool right in front of the hotel must be ideal in summer. Great stuff!

We stayed here 1 night our welcome was friendly and you immediately feel at home. The decor is a combination of Victorian, Edwardian and modern. The atmosphere is tranquil and calming although it is close to the road you dont hear the traffic. All the rooms are superbly decorated with different royalty themes. We stayed in the Knights Chamber which... More

This guesthouse is on the edge of town but right by the coastal path and only a 15 minute stroll to the restaurants and shops. The hosts were enormously helpful in making bookings ahead of time and giving advice and booking restaurants too. the room decor is well OTT but this is all part of the guesthouses charm. Come and...

We have just had our 3rd visit to the Guesthouse and once again we were not disappointed. We love going there because it feels like a home from home. The view from our room was spectacular and we were treated so warmly by Annatjie who runs the Guesthouse. The breakfasts are delicious and our room and other arrears are clean... More

I am writing on behalf of my elderly (84 yrs old) mother and her friend (here on holiday from the UK) who have just stayed there. They particularly wanted me to write a review on this site as they said their stay was out of this world! The guesthouse is beautifully and sumptiously decorated and they stayed in 2 extremely...
