As a tour guide I have been able to stay at many different places of accomadation across South Africa.
The Hermanus Dorpshuys Guest House is of the best that I could have ever stayed.
Koos and Cecilia were most hospitable, helpful and knowledgeble.
The guest house is spotlesly clean.Tastefully decorated in a classical South African style.
You are comfortable, lack nothing and feel the peace in this "home"
Really great! I hope to return soon.

We stayed here in November 2012 for 2 nights. Our room was nice and huge, breakfast great and Cecilia & Koos were always very helpful with recommendations about what to do. The coast line trail is a 7-min walk away from the B&B, city center with restaurants a 15 min walk.

Our evaluation in detail:

B&B and location:
(+) nice B&B in fisherman-style house
(+) in a quiet street
(+) parking on property
(o) not directly at the sea, its a 7-min walk (but we knew that when booking)
(o) city center is a 15-min walk
(o) small pool, big enough to refresh

Room:
(+) we had a very large room, nicely furnished
(+) huge & modern bathroom with shower and bathtub
(+) comfortablee bed, not too soft

Breakfast:
(+) fresh fruits
(+) great English breakfast made to order
(+) If weather is good, breakfast is outside in the garden

Service:
(+) Plenty recommendations about what todo
(+) Help with booking restaurants
(+) free WiFi

Room Tip: ask for the room facing the pool, I think it was room no. 1

This is the best guesthouse I have stayed in. We stayed here for a week during December 2012. It is a great guesthouse situated in a quiet part of town, but still only a 10 minute walk to the old harbour and town center.The rooms are beautifully decorated. Delicious breakfast. Great town, but Koos and Cecilia can tell you all about it. thank you for a wonderful stay! Regards, Deon &Annemarie

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights during our trip along the Garden Route in November 2012.
From the second we arrived to the second we left, Cecilia and Koos were amazing hosts. Nothing was too much trouble, from helping us book trips and restaurants to taking our laundry to the dry cleaners! The room was immaculate and the antique furniture was stunning but it was the special little touches such as the chocolates on the pillows, the fresh milk in the fridge and the bottle of fizz that made the room truly amazing. The freshly made breakfast was truly scrumptious and Cecilia your muffins were yummy and will definitely be using you recipe over christmas. Overall the property was stunning and had a very homely feel to it. By far the best guest house we have ever stayed in. Thanks again Cecilia and Koos!
