We spent one night at The Potting Shed - really nice room, excellent breakfast and very helpful hosts who gave us lots of good recommendations of things to do in the area. Thank you very much for the hospitality!

We stayed at The Potting Shed for 2 nights. The room was really comfortable and the breakfasts were really great! We really enjoyed our time here and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. The location was great - walking distance to the cliff hikes and into town.

Lovely place, perfectly located for a walking trip to the city centre of Hermanus or the coast. Rooms are arranged with love (even if a little bit small for the standard rooms), staff is very friendly and helpful.

The couple who run the guest house were very helpful. They made arrangments for whale and shark watching boat trips which had to be rearranged at the last minute due to weather and they were happy to keep making calls to get us booked. We stayed in the studio which was very nice and in a good location with a... More

We enjoyed our stay at The Potting Shed. The couple whom run the B and B were extremely friendly and helpful. The room,while small,was very comfortable and nicely decorated. The ensuite included a wonderful walk in shower. The breakfast each morning was lovely and something which we looked forward to. Would highly recommend this guest house.

We stayed in the B&B for 2 nights in September, to see the sharks and whales on our way to PE. It's in a great location, ideally situated to walk into town or along the coastal path to do a bit of whale and dassie spotting. Anna-Marie was great, booking our shark and whale trips before we arrived. I struggled... More

We stayed 3 nights at the studio appartment of the Potting Shed during our honeymoon through South Africa. The appartment has everything one can wish for in a holliday appartment. The private terrace is excellent for lounging after daytrips in and around Hermanus. It even has a private braai. The owners are really friendly and helpfull in planning trips and... More

The Potting Shed - self catering apartment. We stayed in one of the 2 bedroom apartments which are on the Whale Rock complex near to the New Harbour, an ideal place to book your boat whale watching trip. The complex is very secure and very well maintained. The gardens and grounds were immaculate, the gardeners work hard keeping everything neat... More

We spent only one nigth at the Potting Shed. Wished we could have stayed more! We had a fantastic room on the second floor, very spacious with a very nice terrace. The guest house is very well located, very close to the whale watching trail and to the city center.

My wife and I stayed in one of the self catering units. The photos looked amazing so we decided to stay there. I would not recommend it to friends. The units are in whale rock estate, which is situated next to the informal settlement far from the town centre and restaurants. We stayed in the ground floor unit and the... More

I’m sorry you didn't enjoy your stay. It’s a pity that you didn't take us up on our offer of moving to another apartment – perhaps you would have found the bed more comfortable in one of our other units. On the 2nd morning of your stay you reported the noisy painters outside your stoep. We arranged for them to... More
