The hosts were excellent and the property recently renovated to high standards the breakfast most generous will stay a gain when down that way. We have stayed at other b& B s in the area but this was the best so far,

A very pretty and stylish guest house with friendly and extremely helpful hosts. They go out of their way to make sure you are enjoying your stay, not only in the Potting Shed, but also getting the best out of your time in Hermanus. Try the pancakes for breakfast :)

We loved our room that much, we actually spend a lot of time inside. We stayed in one of the bigger suites in the back with a living room area and a private terrasse with braai equipment for a nice barbecue. The friendly service and breakfast made it a perfect choice. The location is nicely close to the coast but... More

Caused by an error of our travel agent Africa on Line (Riksja Travel) we were booked in this three star guesthouse instead of a four star guesthouse in Hermanus. However, The Potting Shed is a top three star guesthouse which probably would have been a four star one if it also had airconditioning (there are ventilators in the rooms). Originally... More

We stayed two nights in this well situated place. It is only a walk away to the city center. Dave and Annamarie gave us a warm and friendly reception and were very helpful with tips on where to go and what to see. The self backed cookies on the bed made us feel right at home and the pancakes offered... More

We stayed at the Potting Shed Accommodation for one night during a two week trip to South Africa. What a beautiful place with truly wonderful hosts! We were warmly welcomed and shown to our room. Our room was perfect and even had homemade cookies waiting for us on the bed. The breakfast was great and I appreciated the homemade bread... More

I stayed with my family for around a month in both the self catered and B & B accommodation, both of which were well appointed and tastefully decorated. The self catered apartment is located a few kilometres out of town (near the New Harbour) so it’s best suited to people with a car. The walk to town takes around 45... More

We stayed in a delux room for 5 nights. The Potting Shed is in a great location with comfy, very clean rooms. Annamarie and Dave ( owners ) really take care of you. They provide lots of local knowledge, will book meals etc and look after all the finer details. Wonderful breakfast and great value for money. We loved it... More

Annamarie and David are warm and welcoming hosts at this delightful B&B close to the heart of Hermanus. We thoroughly enjoyed our home away from home and the excellent breakfasts, especially the pancakes! The spacious studio room was an excellent choice for us, with a kitchenette and fabulous outdoor deck area to lounge on or relax with family. Tastefully decorated... More
