With a mountain view behind and short walk to the beach, we really enjoyed our three nights at the FrancolinHof. The owners are lovely people and very helpful. The room we stayed in is very suitable for wheelchair users - they even provided a shower chair. Recommended for a nice quiet vacation spot!

This lovely B&B is a way out of the main part of Hermanus, but near the best swimming beaches. The rooms are lovely with wonderful views. Breakfast is delicious and the service wonderful. All the amenities were there, including port when you get in at night. Owners are around and most helpful. Highly recommended.

We had such a wonderful stay at FrancolinHof B&B. The guest house is situated right on the base of the most spectacular mountain... quiet and with the most gorgeous views. And we were just 2 minutes away from two of Hermanus's most gorgeous beaches. The B&B owners, Mary and Jean, were so warm, personal and hospitable. They take so much... More

First of all I want to start off by thanking Mary and Jean for their wonderful hospitality! They have truly looked after my fiancé and I and were more than capable of recommending great outdoor activities to do in the area to restaurants to visit. Be aware of the sweet treats FrancolinHof sneaks onto the breakfast table at the end... 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.

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
