We stayed here for 2 nights and found the slow pace of life a real delight. The accommodation is quite regal and has a real sense of charm. The location is ideal as you can walk to the town in 5 mins. You can see the sea from the balcony and if you are lucky even spot the whales from... More

This B&B was great! They had a wonderful breakfast and the view from the rooms upstairs was just amazing. It over looked the bay/ocean. This place is also very close (walking distance) to town. And they have a great pool.

This Guesthouse is located on the quiet side of Hermanus, but close enough to walk into the centre of the village to enjoy the many restaurants, shops and other facilities on offer. The walk along the beach path is safe and fabulous but of course you can use the sidewalk too. Stunning views on offer over a delicious breakfast from... More

Stayed at La fountaine guest house one night on our drive throughout the garden route. We arrive a little late but was received nicely. Was given advise of where to have our dinner in a nice place. Stayed one night and had a lovely breakfast at the terasse, we will be back to Hermandus and La fountime is recommended

My wife and I spent two nights in the smaller sea facing room this weekend. This just has to be the absolute best position in the whole of Hermanus - we could sit out on the balcony and enjoy the magnificent view or walk one block into the middle of town. Despite this the location is quiet with not much... More

Nice Guest House overlooking the sea. Room was at the front and was clean and comfortable. Owner was friendly and booked dinner for us in local restaurants on both nights that we were there. Recommendations were excellent. Only slight niggle was having to choose breakfast the day before.

We booked a room for 2 nights at this Guesthouse which is very close to the centre of Hermanus and its local amenities. Our room had a balcony overlooking the sea and the garden/pool below. Rooms on the ground floor were available for use by guests and were packed with interesting books, artifacts and memorabilia. Gail, the Landlady, was very... More

We stayed here only one night in the family suite which includes a double and twin room with shared bathroom in between. It is a really high standard guest house and the location on Marine Drive overlooking the sea is great for the view and for walking into Hermanus or along the Cliff path. There is off street secure parking... More

Very good location on sea front a few minutes walk from the main town and restaurants. We spent one night here. Our small room was at the back of the hotel, upstairs. The balcony was so narrow it was difficult to manoeuvre the furniture to a position where two people could sit side by side and the view was mainly... More
