Stayed just the 1 night. Lovely room with sea view. Bed was very comfortable with shower hot and powerful. Complementary Sherry and port very welcome as an aperitif before we walked into Hermanus to look for an evening meal. Reception staff were very helpful with ideas on where to eat. Breakfast was lovely with a good choice including salmon and... More

Ask for the room that faces the sea. Very comfortable beds and large bedrooms. The breakfast is excellent with a large variety to choose from. Good price as well. Can see why it was voted one of the hotels with the best views

Wonderful room, friendly and delightful service. Superb views, yummy breakfasts and gorgeous walks on your doorstep. Even though our aircon was faulty which did make it a little chilly, the staff were really understanding and apologetic to the best that they could be as this problem had literally just materialized before our arrival! Will certainly be returning.

Staff are friendly, views are great. This is 5 star hotel, but in my opinion it's in need of some TLC, so is in fact more like a 4 star. The walk in front is spectacular. It's extremely conveniently located by shops and restaurants. The fireplace downstairs is very ambient and the perfect way to relax.

The welcome was warm and helpful, the room large and comfortably furnished. It may have missed the robes and slippers feel of a five star but it really makes up for it with comfortable furnishing, large and quiet room in a completely unbeatable location. The balcony for room 6 (where we stayed) is large and looks out on the sea... More

Wonderful location, with magnificent sea views and easy access to the coastal footpath. We arrived very early and were warmly welcomed despite it stil being breakfast time. We were offered a bathroom to allow us to change from our travel clothes and freshen up and even to help ourselves from the breakfast buffet, so an excellent start. We had a... More

This hotel has what is probably an unrivalled ocean view across Walker bay and Hermanus town. My wife and I stayed for three nights and had a first floor room with stunning views. We had a huge room with large double bed, chairs and balcony with comfortable loungers where we could watch the waves crashing against the shore. The room... More

Excellent location by the cliff top path. Large comfortable room, superb view. No aircon. Wifi best in main lounge. Friendly and helpful staff who arranged an evening meal for us at a local restaurant. Good breakfast provided.

The only thing this B&B has going for it is the location on the west cliff overseeing Hermanus bay. The rooms are spacious, but without aircon. Wifi reception in the room and restaurant either is too weak (slow) or none existent. There is no turn-down service despite the relatively high rate (2500 Rand). There is no aircon in public areas...
