Hylton and Charmaine have created a home from home, well appointed in a fantastic setting, good chat about the marine residents - we will do it again for sure! One drawback, the honesty bar was not well stocked!

Hermanus is a beautiful place to stay. On The Cliff Guest House is a great place to holiday in the town. It's positioned near the centre of town: an easy wall along the rugged coastline. Great views from the very comfortably appointed premises enhance the experience. The owners are very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed every minute of our stay.

It was more than a tonic!

The location was very good for us, just across from the path following the cliffs and providing periodic access to the rocks. Downtown was also a short walk and the area was found to be safe. GREATSPOT

This is a very professionally run establishment, with magnificent (and Large) bedrooms, which we thoroughly enjoyed staying in. Extremely friendly and helpful owners, who obviously enjoy what they are doing. Lovely breakfasts.
