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... More

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... More

Our second visit and nothing disappointed. Anel continues to be the perfect hostess. This is such a little treasure ajd at a reasonable price. The rooms are beautifully furnished with real attention to detail. See you next time we're in Hermanus.

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... More

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.

Great location, an easy safe walk to restaurants and bars. Very near to the cliff walk where you can watch the whales from the shore. Nice and quiet at night for a restful sleep. The rooms are very tastefully decorated and spacious. There is a sitting area inside and a nice veranda outside. The rooms overlook a small garden with... More

Very pleasant one night stay here. Room was very nice, spacious and clean. Owner was very helpful indeed, and breakfast was very nice.

Sixteen on Main offers easy access, big and well designed rooms and free parking. Owner/hostess Anel could not have been more helpful. Breakfast very satisfactory. Highly recommended place to stay in beautiful Hermanus.
