“Home from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2012

I've stayed in Hermanus Dorpshuys twice now, both times I have been amazed at the hospitality of both Koos and Cecilia. You'll have to walk far to find their equal. Nothing seemed too much trouble and any information I needed was provided and more - their knowledge of the area is fantastic and a lot was learned. The rooms are spacious and tastefully furnished - and the feeling is warm and elegant. Hermanus Dorpshuys is a home from home - and next time I'm in Hermanus - you'll find me there.

Koos and Cecilia were very friendly hosts, serving a delicious breakfast and advising us on the points of interest in the neighbourhood. Their B&B - beautifully restaured by themselves not so long ago - was on walking distance from the center of Hermanus, located in a quiet area. All in all, we would strongly recommend this to other travellers planning to visit Hermanus!

My stay at Hermanus Dorpshuys was wonderful. The beautiful home and great location was only matched by the sweet hospitality of Koos and Cecilia, who did everything they could to make our stay more enjoyable. Koos not only lent me his rain jacket since I didn't have one, but even took me for a tour of the area. They also sent me home with a gift for the kids- a whale carving out of wood! I spent 2 nights there and highly recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone who wants a warm, comfortable guest house with super hosts.

What can I say about Hermanus Dorpshuys? We had two wonderful days/ nights there. Hermanus itself is such a nice village. Nice views, good food (try the wasabi tuna at Lemon Butta!) and a relaxed atmosphere. Koos and Cecilia made our time in Hermanus even better. We came from Knysna where our room was disappointing, so we were hoping for something better. It turned out to be great! Very nice and stylish room, and definitely the cleanest room we have ever had. Koos and Cecilia are very friendly, they learned us a lot about South Africa. So if you ever go to Hermanus, make sure you stay at the Dorpshuys, you won't regret!

The stylish house has been beautiful renovated. Upper class interior. Everything very clean.
Great breakfast. Walkingdistance to Hermanus Center.
But most importend: The owners Koos and Cecilia are wonderful and helpful people.
We could spend only three days in that nice house.
