I sent the below review directly to Pelagus nearly a month ago as I thought it was fair to do so, however I have had no response or acknowledgement. Probably says it all. When we arrived, our greeting was welcomed with "you’re late!" In all my days I have never been accused of being late for check in especially as... More

The location of Pelagus was ideal, right on the water, on the sea walk. The mansion that it is in in strikingly beautiful as are the common rooms, but the guest rooms are small and barely functional. Breakfast was nothing special. Perhaps I am spoiled by South African B&Bs that are both luxurious and incredibly gracious, but Pelagus was impersonal... More

Weekend getaway for R&R with a friend -- this was superb accommodation. Personally, we loved the "no kids under 10" rule as it was so quiet and peaceful. Rooms clean and lovely, fantastic breakfast and idyllic views of ocean from the deck. Appreciated the location which is in easy walking distance of the village. Our only issue was wifi that... More

We were fortunate to spend 1 night at Pelagus and loved it! The room was super cute and cosy. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We felt very safe and the location is excellent. The house itself is beautiful. Definitely worth more than we paid...Would absolutely go back!

This B&B is on the rocks in Hermanus. If you want to do whale watching, here's the place to stay. Very neat, clean bedroom and en suite. Excellent breakfast, one of the best we ever had anywhere in the world. Beautiful antiques and romantic atmosphere. Friendly staff and lots of safe parking. Will stay here again, especially winter season, as... More
