“nice and cozy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Nice room, nice hosts. The only thing that we missed was the possibility to choose what we want to eat for breakfast. They have a daily changing menu but if you dont like the stuff they offer that day, you have to ask for an alternative as they dont have a buffet.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Beautiful location right on the edge of a nature reserve. Rooms, service, food - all great. Stayed in the suite (huge), and family stayed in a smaller (but not small) room, which was also very nice. Only one minor complaint - shower door in the suite was missing some panels. But given the very reasonable price for this high quality establishment (reasonable by South African standards, and therefore evern more so by international standards), I would struggle to go below 5 stars.

Room Tip: The suite (and some other rooms) have a sea view (in the distance - but still a very beautiful view...

Me and my wife stayed there for 2 nights and really enjoyed it. Breakfast was delicious. We stayed in the suite, it is big with King bed, shower, big bath, couch and balcony. There is also a pool. Was really great and would definitely stay there again!

We stayed two nights in a sea facing room with a balcony. Very comfortable furnishings and very clean. The decor is a lot of white tile, chrome railings, and beige walls. Artwork and sculpture is everywhere - on the vanity, near the bathtub, on the bookcases, on the deck, etc. - wonderful to look at. The cliff paths is three short blocks away and is a beautiful walk.

Stayed in the family room for 2 nights - had the pool to ourselves, great kitchen facilities, could have stayed there cooking real food if we had wanted to. Quiet, comfortable, clean - great base for Hermanus, but you will need a car.

Room Tip: You need a car

We only stayed one night which was a huge mistake - next time (and I so hope there will be a next time) we will spend much longer. The rooms are spotless and very well appointed - beds and bathrooms are great. The balconies (we stayed in 2 rooms) were secluded with great views of the mountains or the sea. The breakfast room and sitting areas had great views of the coast. The breakfast was awesome and the staff were very friendly. Jose was informative and very helpful - I hope you've forgiven us for running away with one of the room keys, we posted it back at the airport! Highly recommended. Thanks guys.
