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.

We loved our stay at the Pottingshed Guesthouse. Dave and Annamarie offers accommodation that makes you feel right at home. Their attention to detail makes it obvious that they are passionate about their establishment and ultimately about offering great value for money to their guests. I can highly recommend the Pottingshed Guesthouse!

This is a terrific B&B which really nails the British charm element. Luckily, it also nails all of the other elements, making it a wonderful place to stay. The breakfast is scrumptious and the beds are ridiculously comfortable. Do not pass this one by!

What a lovely surprise to find this place. We arrived early, the owners being out shopping, but we were welcomed be a very smart and friendly staff member.
