After an initial miscommunication which left me dubious about what to expect, I was very pleasantly surprised and delighted with our weekend stay at the Potting Shed. Dave and Annemarie have created a high standard of accommodation in a quiet suburb, good breakfast and helpful staff. The venue is close to all the best which Hermanus has to offer.

This was our second visit to The Potting Shed in Hermanus and it was even better than the first. AnnaMarie and Dave run a superb B&B - cannot fault it and I would if I felt it was helpful to potential visitors. If you are looking for first class accomodation close to the centre of town the PS is the... More

A great quaint little place to stay over and relax at. We stayed over for the evening after trying to find a place to sleep for the evening, and came across this little place run by Dave and his wife. There's even a small swimming pool to cool down in, and breakfast was wonderful as well. Getting away from the... More

We stayed in the self-catering units. They were clean, comfortable and close to the beach! Real value for money! I will definitely be back. Hermanus is also such a charming fishing village. Our family had a great stay there! Annamarie and her staff were wonderful and very attentive

I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending The Potting Shed Guest House, and would certainly stay there again. The accommodation was comfortable, clean, well presented and equipped. I found Annamarie, the owner, to be very friendly, welcoming and accommodating - she goes out of her way to make her guests feel comfortable. The homemade muffins, bread and other goodies Annamarie... More

Lovely little BnB with clean rooms and bathrooms plus great service. Breakfast was delicious. Easy to walk into town to various restaurants in the evenings. Would recommend and stay again when in Hermanus!

The Potting Shed was a great little place to stay - little touches such as the refreshing iced tea on arrival were great. And the staff were very helpful and friendly suggesting things to do and places to eat.

Potting shed is located in a quiet street within easy and safe walking distance in of the centre of Hermanus. The B@B is run by an English couple who have created a lovely and airy ambience into which they have put much creativity. Our room was on the small side but comfortable and spotlessly clean. There is a small pool... More

We enjoyed our stay in the Potting Shed Guesthouse very much! The hosts are very nice and helpful, the breakfast is excellent (every morning freshly baked bread, muffins, pancakes etc.) and the studio is a great location to relax.

The Potting Shed is situated in a quit surrounding. It only takes a few minutes to the harbour/boardwalk. The rooms are cosy, comfortable and clean. The pool area is inviting. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the breakfast offers everything a South African needs... ;-)
