We stayed for 2 nights at this lovely lodge. John and Lesley are great hosts and our 6 year old son had lots of jokes with them. The lodge itself is modern and clean, the staff make a great breakfast and delicious biscuits. We took a boat trip and saw loads of whales, you can spot them from the beach... More

We stayed at Aloe Guest House from 5-10 Oct 2014 in the family room. It was our 3rd visit at Aloe. John and Lesley is very friendly and helpful as usual. The family room is very spacious and comfortable with kids. Full DSTV with PVR. We will be back!

We loved the Aloe guest house! We stayed there from 17 till 20 july 2014. Unfortunately, both the whale watching and a cage dive with white sharks were cancelled because of bad wheather. Thanks to alternatives provided by John our stay became a memorable one. We will never forget the mental (and Scotch!) support John gave us during the night... More

We spent 2 nights at the Aloe. The hotel is simple but comfortable and cozy. We were greeted warmly by the owners, Leslie and John. They were perfect. Helped us in everything we need. The breakfast is great and the Leslie's cookies are unmissable. Hermanus is a beautiful city with panoramic views of Walker Bay. We went to Hermanus for... More

Dear Manoel, it was an honour to meet you and Sandra. I wish I could say I bake the biscuits, they are baked by Catherine in the kitchen. John and I hope that you will find Aloe House on facebook. We are happy to say that Sandra has and we wish you both well. We look forward to welcoming you... More

Aloe Guest House was recommended by another B&B we had stayed in Knysna. What a great find! We had not made any reservations so we were looking for places to stay as we toured the coastline of Africa for 21 days in June 2013 (sorry for the late review). John and Leslie were absolutely charming and went out of their... More

I stayed at Aloe House for 3 nights on the 1st June 2014. Warm, inviting, friendly and homey, Leslie and John (and the ever faithful Harry the basset hound) run a small establishment that makes you feel that you are the most special and welcome guest of the guest house. It has a limited number of rooms, all beautifully furnished... More

Had the great pleasure of staying at the Aloe guest house. Superb room for our family and fantastic hospitality from John,Leslie and staff. Nothing seemed to be any trouble. The house is so central that all you have to do is get there and then let Hermanus and its magic take its effect. #relaxed
