Great views from room and breakfast table of mountain very closeby and ocean in the distance. Baboon proof metal shutters for the door to balcony but doesnt interfere with view. Lovely to... More

I have stay her a number of times and always love it. It is on the hill on the outskirts of Hermanus with the most amazing views of the bay. You can stand on the balcony and watch the whales playing in the bay. We did the cliff walk which is fabulous. Great breakfast and lovely staff.

The Rooms are neat and well organised with lovely views of the ocean and surrounding mountain area. A few other things that we... More

We certainly enjoyed our couple of days at FrancolinHof, the rooms were large, airy and incredibly well kept. The dining area and food served was awesome, this opened out onto an open patio area which was common to the adjacent rooms. From the dining room we could look out over the mountains and could see the many birds and other... More

Very nice guesthouse, quiet, lovely rooms, nicely decorated, home away from home, wish we could have stayed longer. Very friendly and helpful staff, wonderful views of the sea, close to Grotto beach. Breakfast was excellent. Will definitely return

We took some friends to stay with us and we all had a wonderful time here. We were greeted by Jean with a welcome pot of tea, and then shown to our spacious rooms where there was even a complimentary bottle of wine waiting for us each. The rooms were on the ground floor and each had a little patio... More

Dear John and Anne Thank you for this lovely review and I'm pleased that our suggestions were helpful - and the tuk-tuk. My car was giving problems last week and I used it then too - it's tempting to feel 'on holiday' more often! Today the whales were putting on a wonderful show and seemed to be enjoying the glorious... More

This beautiful guesthouse has great big comfy rooms upstairs with a gorgeous view of the beach and the mountains. I absolutely loved the fynbos surrounding us, with a lovely garden behind the property. We took a beach walk along the promenade just before the rain set in and were treated to a few whales playing in the waves. Breakfast was... More

We booked on recommendation and were delighted with the rooms. Jéan and Mary gave us a warm welcome and fabulous breakfasts. The house is close to Grotto Beach with a lovely cliff/shoreline walk through the Ferkloof Nature Reserve Cliff Path. At the back of the house is a nature reserve leading to the mountain behind and to the side/front, wonderful... More
