“Good Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

We stayed for 2 nights at the end of a 2 week Garden Route vacation.
Good location for 10 min walk to the water & 45-50 min walk along the ocean promenade to the V&A Waterfront. Breakfast was in the lovely garden overlooking the pool. Alex cooks a wonderful omelette with fresh basil, tomatoes & mushrooms. Awesome fresh grain/seed bread & brewed coffee for breakfast. Room #4 had a balcony but the doors & metal gate were locked, the only window that opened a tiny bit was the bathroom so it was rather hot & stuffy. Ceiling fan operated at only one speed..slow & squeaky. The twin beds were in need of replacing as they both sagged in the middle. For the same price or less, we've had superior guesthouses all along the garden route.

The garden and pool are very nice, the furniture is special and tasteful, the hosts are very helpful and friendly, and the view is great. Location very nice for the town, for the seaside promenade, and for Signal Hill hiking.

Located in a calm street, the host and the staff of Huys Haerlem provide excellent service (from booking until farewell). Very complete and tasty breakfast in the garden (if weather allows). Beautiful house.

Quite and safe location - just a bit inconvenience with no public transportation around, but good to have the tourist bus close by, so still quite good
Informative and helpful staff. Worth the value - very helpful for getting right weather "forecast" for unpredictable Cape style

The Guesthouse is lovely decorated and every single detail is well-thought. The house owner and the people working are very hospitable. The breakfasts feel you at home-warmness. The cost is very reasonable and place is very convenient.

After a shoulder operation I stayed at HuijsHaerlem. The team could not have been better. There was nothing that they would not do: helping,carrying, encourageing,laundry calling Taxis and generally advising.On top of all that were the terrific Breakfasts. A big thank you to the whole team
