The guest house is well located near the beaches of Voelklip, even though is was a bit too cold to swim, it made for a nice pre-breakfast walk.
It is a short 2-3km drive from the town centre, which is great for a quiet, relaxing time.
Lauren's service was great, always checking if we had what we needed and making suggestions for trips out of Hermanus or restaurants to visit.
The other staff were also very friendly, made us feel very welcome.
We had great value for money on the Daddy's Deal and it included a hearty breakfast. The honeymoon suite next door to us has a wrap-around balcony view which would have been amazing to enjoy while lazing in bed on a cold and raint day, but unfortunately the room was already booked.
The Grotto room on the 2nd floor had an amazing sea view, but it had an interconnecting door to the room next door, probably meant for families wanting kids in a room next door, so we were a bit conscious of sound of our TV or in general travelling through the door into that room.
The furnishings were great, the style of the room a bit dated and the en suite bathroom a little small, but adequate.
Breakfast included cereals, muesli, toast, jam, a fruit cocktail and a choice of your style egg and bacon with tomato. The egg and bacon was fried perfectly.
Nice freshly brewed coffee (or tea) and real brown sugar, uncommon these days.
TIP: Drive the 20km to Stanford around the bay and go to the Birkenhead Brewery and Walker Bay Vineyards for a beer and wine tasting, only R20 to taste 7 beers and R20 to taste 5 wines. Food is also well priced, even though we didn't eat there. They had a nice, huge fireplace with a fire burning.
All in all a great stay.
