Natasha and Annatjie were charming and helpful with any recommendation needed during our stay.Their hospitality was extraordenary.The guesthouse as well as the rooms are lovely decorated.The breakfast was also very nice and we didn´t miss anything.
We come back another time!
Thanks again for this unforgetable experience.

We have travelled extensively and the hospitality here is the best we have encountered. Annatjie and Natasha are charming and they provided a homely and personal touch to our stay and we were made to feel special. The accomodation and bedroom was opulent and spotless and the attention to detail remarkable. The chocolate cake and port on our return in the evening was very much appreciated. We will definately be staying here again on our next trip.

Room Tip: The rooms at the front have an amazing sea view and the tourist information recommends this as the b...

We enjoyed every second of their hospitality! The guesthouse is ideally located, beautifully decorated and the staff friendly and professional. The whole experience was pleasant and smooth, from booking online to checking out, and the lovely breakfasts and chocolate cake in between! Was very hard to pack up! We'll definitely be coming back!

Room Tip: All rooms are great, but we'll be booking a first floor room with a balcony next time! You'l...

The room was very tastefully decorated and is a true reflection of your website , which I highly appreciate. The room had a beautifull sea view and very comfortable and will carry the memories of our 40 th wedding anniversary with us. The staff were very friendly and professional. The breackfasts were very nice and well presented. The Owner can be proud of his two hostesses Annatjie and Natasha. Will definately come back.

We received a warm welcome from the hostesses Anatjie and Natasha. I suffered a bad sun burn and they were very kind to offer me some tissue oil to help soothe my skin. they made me feel at home and did everything to make my stay as comfortable as possible. The hotel is ideally located, very cosy and has some unique decor. The hostesses made our stay special and we would highly recommend it,

We enjoyed a pleasant, single night's stay at Hermanus Guesthouse, having booked online at the last minute. We were welcomed warmly by the proprieter, Annatjie, who, together with her colleague (daughter?) Natasha was unfailingly charming and helpful. Our room (#1, downstairs with sea view - "The Queen's Chamber") was decorated in a remarkably extravagent style, as in fact is the whole place - think Louis XV meets Gracelands. While fun, (although I'm not sure that's the intended effect), this results in a somewhat "formal" feel that makes it a littlle difficult to relax fully. Excellent breakfast, secure parking. Only one minor negative - our room's location meant it was quite noisy, particularly at breakfast time.

Unbelievable views from our room, very helpful stuff & one of the nicest room we ever had in a guesthouse - make this one of the best nights we had! We were lucky to see whales from outside the guesthouse! The stuff was available & very helpfull prior to our arrival. The room was very stylish (According to my wife - I had some problem sleeping in a room styled with wedding pictures, but I guess it was funny!)
