My daughter and I spent a wonderful week at The Potting Shed, food was great and the service outstanding. When we requested a change of room to downstairs to accommodate my age, we were assisted immediately and the staff were willing and able to do so with very little fuss.

No hesitation in recommending the hospitality of Annamarie and David as we have stayed at the Potting Shed many times on our journeying between UK and RSA, usually en route to or from George. Have seen the development of this B&B since 2005. Try it and enjoy ! Keith and Ann Millen

Always lovey to see you and Ann. Thank you for the wonderful review Keith. Yes the Potting Shed has definitely changed over the last few years with all the renovations we've done. It's brilliant when guests keep returning and see an improvement year after year. See you again soon. Love and best wishes, Annamarie & Dave xx More

We arrived a little late - no problem. We wanted a braai - no problem. A recipe of the home-cooked breakfast-bread - we gor a copy. This is the way Annamarie and Dave and their team with the small problems of their guests. What else is there to say: delightful breakfast with eggs (fried or scrambled) and bacon or pancakes....

We loved our stay at The Potting Shed - friendly English ex-pat owners and management team, recently refurbished rooms were so comfortable (we stayed in the deluxe room, #4) and pretty and the location is peaceful but well placed for activities... plus BEST breakfast we had during our South Africa trip!! Highly recommended

Loved Hermanus and the Potting Shed was an ideal place to base ourselves. The room was excellent and had great shower. The breakfast was lovely and the owners couldn't have been more helpful and would love to go back and would recommend to all my friends and family.

The Potting Shed was the perfect place for our stay in South Africa - from the accommodation itself (especially the cleanliness, decor and huge beds!), to the ideal location and welcoming hosts. It was such a lovely place to stay and we can't thank Annamarie and Dave enough for giving us such a warm welcome to Hermanus! Would highly recommend... More

You know when you've found something special, this is what I feld when I walked into the Potting Shed. OK, there's no reception as such, everyone is busy, but the eventual welcome was warm. The decor is African themed contemporary and stylish, I would descibe it as a boutique guest house. The breakfast was lovely with lots of choice and... More

We stayed at the Potting Shed for two nights. What a little gem, all bedrooms tastefully furnished with lots of little extras. Ann-Marie and David were so welcoming. Gave us recommendations for dinner, which we used - and was fantastic. Also booked a wine tour for us, equally good. Nothing was too much trouble. Decided to do a "braai" on... More

Great Easter weekend at the Potting shed. The owners Dave and Annamarie were exceptional hosts. Our room was immaculate and beautifully furnished and decorated.The entire experience, including the delicious breakfast, could not be faulted and we will definitely be returning and recommending to others.
