“Magnificent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

I have just returned from a 1 day trip to Hermanus, and spent last night at this Residence. It was absolutely magnificent! My room overlooked the pool, with views to die for! Magestic mountain in my backyard! The room is decorated in white and turqoise, with a bit of navy. Modern, with an exquisite bathroom! In the bedroom there is also a cabinet with TV on top, and inside coffee and tea making facilities, plus a small fridge with cold drinks (R10) and beer (R15). I paid R500 for the night, which included a superb breakfast in the morning. Perhaps a bit steep, but really worth the money! Petra made me feel really welcome!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

We have just spent 3 weeks staying in the Rose Suite, Von Abercron Residence. The location is excellent, a safe and attractive area, very convenient for all attractions in Hermanus and the surrounding areas. Petra could not have been more helpful, booking restaurants and giving very good advice. On our arrival we found the Rose Suite to be a little musty, the cupboards in the kitchen and bedroom smelt damp which improved by keeping them open during our stay and though the kitchen was quite well equipped apart from a microwave oven there was no effective oven and the portable electric hot plates needed updating. The suite was very well serviced during out stay but we felt the mattresses were not really up to standard. Attention to detail would make this a winner!

The house is in a good position - right on the mountain. We had a good day swimming in the pool and saw a whole troop of baboons passing by and many beautiful Cape Sugarbirds in the garden. Unfortunately the rooms and bathrooms were disappointing - very tacky, the upstairs room facing the garden was stuffy and the mattress and pillows were extremely uncomfortable. It was such a beautiful evening but we were forced to cook indoors. We wanted to have a braai but were told that the grid had rusted away and there was no wood (despite there being a whole pile outside our bathroom window). The place is definitely not 4 star accommodation and not worth the price. Overall we were disappointed with the experience and will definitely not be going back!

We had a short stay at the Von Abercron Residence and it was wonderful. The rooms are querky and well decorated and very very clean.The host is warm and professional. What a lovely breakfast too.

Room Tip: The blue room is very suitable for family with its kitchen/lounge area and views over the golf club
