The rooms were clean, comfortable and big. There are a lot of different options for breakfast which are all delicious. But the best thing was the Jacuzzi on the roof top because you can enjoy the beautfiul sunset.

Excellent property, in a great location. Welcomed in with open arms and extremely friendly and very flexible. The Roundhouse is easy to find, when you get into the local area you can see it above all the other properties! It's querky, but at the same time very modern and feels different, which gives it an element of excitement!

I had booked accommodation in Hermanus and following receipt of what turned out to be a rogue email telling me the guesthouse had closed down I looked for alternative and booked here. On discovering the closure information was false I felt obliged to stay with my original accommodation which had been paid for in full. I just wanted to comment... More

I was not impressed by the welcoming party when we arrived as he was generally unfriendly and very rushed, however, in his defence, it was a bit late (7pm). The rest of the weekend was fantastic. The cleaning staff were friendly and helpful. The self catering house where we stayed was spotlessly clean, well equipped and the little extras were... More

A very unique, quaint guest house, with an amazing view of the ocean, the service provided by Denise and her staff was fantastic. Extremely comfortable rooms. A place where you can be a social or quiet as you want?

We had arrived slightly early to book in and the cleaning staff where busy. Wow, what a friendly lot they are.The place was spotless and only 10 min walk to the beach. For a family of 4 in peak season this must be the best value for your money,

This is an excellent self-catering home to rent when staying with friends and family in Gansbaai. The house is well-appointed with all med-cons, fresh white linen, new bathroom facilities, free firewood and wifi.

Great place to stay for the shark dive. Great location and all the staff and the owner were so friendly and helpful. Go in the jacuzzi for sunset! The breakfast was possibly the best we had while in SA. We got lucky that our 'healthy breakfast' option wasn't available so we opted for the french toast and pancakes which were... More

The Roundhouse is a nice enough place to stay, but don't book hour shark dive with these people. We booked a dive for a family of six through the Roundhouse and were told the night before our excursion the boat was suffering engine worries and they'd get back to us when they knew what was happening. A mechanical breakdown is... More

Thanks for your review. I am glad you liked the Roundhouse. Unfortunately due to the tour being cancelled because of a malfunctioned engine with the operator that we booked with I personally came to you and explained the situation and that we would try our best to rebook you on another boat (Which a direct operator would never do) I...

The Roundhouse is a lovely accommodation , nice food and the hosts are great. Very friendly, hospitable and take good care of you while you are there. I would highly recommend it and I am... More
