“Highly Recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Hermanus Guesthouse has got to be one of those little known gems that one comes across every now and then. From the time you step through the front door you will experience comfort and pampering to a degree that is not often found. The decor is simply charming, the comfort supreme, and every possible requirement is thought of. I stayed in the Milady's suite and loved the jacuzzi bath and the private balcony looking out to sea. The ladies who run the guesthouse are solicitous and nothing is too much trouble for them. Breakfast was delicious and hearty. The location of the guesthouse is perfect too, as it is not in the centre of the town, and therefore quiet, but close enough to walk into town if one wished to.

Room Tip: I loved having a room with a balcony.

Beautiful Lodge with the friendliest staff ever. Breakfast was very good too. Secure parking in the back and walking distance to down-town. Ocean just across the road. If you like modern this is not for you!

Stayed 8th may, had a room out the back in the car park, but it was fine, room was beautifully decorated, all though a bit small for a family suite, breakfast was 1st class,
We had been travelling for almost a week so had loads of dirty laundry, I asked if there was a laundry near by, the lovely owner phoned the local laundrette, which came over in 5 minutes, all though we had to be out of room for 10? (Can't quite remember) we left the car parked at guest house, went for a walk around hermanus, came back at 1pm, and the laundry fairy had returned our clothes! Very friendly, helpful staff in a beautiful guest house!

We spent 4 stunning nights at the Hermanus Guest House. The room was beautiful and very spacious as well as spotlessly clean. The owners and staff were extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was delicious and the service superb. I would recommend the Hermanus Guest House to anyone wishing to stay in the delightful town of Hermanus! We are moving to Hermanus in July and will keep in contact with such lovely people. Greg and Sue.

Room Tip: All the rooms are lovely.

The house that hosts the place is very beautiful, and everything, including the rooms, has a classic feel that makes your stay extremely cozy. Decoration is very nice too, with much attention to details. Our room was spacious, clean, and as beautifully decorated as the house. Staff is very attentive and breakfast is also very good, with plenty of options. While we were checking in, they offered us a delicious chocolate cake. The location is not right at the centre, but we easily walk there every time we needed and wanted. The only downside is that there are two rooms beside the garage and, if you’re staying there, you’ll be bothered since early morning by engines. Therefore, try not to book one of those rooms.

Excelant stay .We will never stay anywhere else ever again when in Hermanus! Not only did we stay in the most beautiful luxurious room with a view on the sea but the breakfast was a definite knockout with crispy freshly baked croissants ,variety of cold meats and cheeses and so much more . Its in the heart of town and with a stroll along the beach you are in no time within reach of all the restaurants and famous little shops to browse around for hours. The staff were friendly and ever so helpful to assist us whenever !

Room Tip: All the rooms should be on ones bucket list ! Superior accommodation !
