Spent only one night at beautiful Hermanus but definitely will be back again someday. The guest house is lovely, very good location, the host was super friendly (like most South African people), great breakfast, clean and comfy room, private parking. Overall great value for money:) I really recommend to take the boat tour to see the wales, worth every dime!!

A very clean, stylish guest house. Warm welcome, very comfortable with a bedroom and small lounge for each room. The owner was really helpful booking our activities and suggesting restaurants. Lovely breakfast room and food. Super. We have booked again this year. Really hoping to see whales this time!!

Very nice lodge run directly by the owner. Rooms silent, very spacious and comfortable facing direcly the small swimming pool. Bathroom with both bath and shower providing nice biodegradable cosmetics. The owner kindly offers to make reservations for the tours in the area and cooks delicious French toast for breakfast. The only minus is the position, directly on the main...

We arranged to arrive early and Anel was there to meet us.The room was spacious and comfortable. I was pleased find a bath as well as a shower in the bathroom. Close to town with safe parking.Be aware of the light switches before going out as if you return after dark it can be a little dangerous knocking against furniture...

My third visit to Hermanus and finally a guesthouse I'd like to visit again! Like most guest houses in South Africa it's friendly - but not all are as spacious and well maintained as Sixteen Guesthouse on Main. Most amenities - including a bath tub - are readily avialable. Safe parking - like most gues housesv offer today- and a...

Sixteen Guesthouse on main Street exceeded my expectations. The proprietor, Anel, is hospitable without being gushing, over-the-top or intrusive. The rooms are spacious, especially for budget accommodation and the Hermanus village square and sea front is a short walk away. When I was staying there the guests were young or a bit-older-than-young couples from Europe. Good value and recommended.

Always a bit wary about B&B's but the quality of this place was beyond our expectations. beautifully decorated rooms with little lounges off the bedroom. Even though on the main street in Hermanus it was peaceful at night, and within walking distance of town centre. Breakfast, we had to state what time we wanted it in the morning, a little...

It was a pleasant one night stay. Rooms are absolutely nice, and very close to restaurants and beachfront where you can actually watch the whales. Parking is very safe. One can walk as well to the beachfront.
