If you ever consider going to Hermanus, the Potting Shed is a must. We have stayed twice in the self catering unit. It is beautiful, awesome seeview, childfriendly unit and Dave and Annamarie are very friendly. This year we had some bad luck and had to cancel our booking in June for our stay in October. Dave and Annamarie completely... More

Very pleasant stay, great people and delicious homemade pancakes in the morning ! We stayed there with our son age 16, it was a pity that the third bed in the room was the coach. The matress was not really suited for that.

Only one towel each was provided, which was not sufficient, had to was the towels after every morning... More

Right from the very start Dave and Annemarrie were fantastic hosts. The weather had been a little windy and our shark diving trips had cancelled on us but Dave came to the rescue and organised a fantastic trip for us on one of the larger boats he knew about, in fact it was one of just two that sailed the...

This place is truly amazing, my girlfriend and I stayed over for one evening in the deluxe suite and really had such an awesome time. The patrons Dave and Anna-Marie are really cool laid back people, though unfortunately Anna-Marie wasn't there at the time but Dave was quick to help us with anything we needed. There is quite a lot... More

Stunning accommodation! Incredible hosts! Wonderful breakfast! We will definitely be back. The Potting Shed is simply lovely. The loft we stayed in was fully catered for and just beautiful! Relaxed atmosphere!

The Potting Shed had a central location to explore Hermanus with easy access to the cliff walk. The rooms are nice and clean. The breakfast is perfect. Definitely one of the best places to stay in Hermanus.
