The Cliff Cottage Bed & Breakfast is a charming thatched roof cottage with several well equipped rooms and an actual separate cottage. The very friendly couple who run this establishment prepared a wonderful breakfast, bacon and eggs,juice ,toast and Musli while advising my wife and I upon the best nearby wine tasting tours with food pairings, as well as the...

We liked the spacious room with extra bedroom and lounge leading to a nice terrasse in the garden. It was back one street from the Hermanus cliff walk and easily reachable to the New and Old Harbor. The food in the New Harbor restaurant was outstanding. Best Tuna Tartar ever. And the tour of the Abalone farm (Abagold) with tasting... More

Lovely place, felt homey and inviting. Delicious breakfast served. Brian and Lionie was very friendly and helpful. We received a warm welcome and we needed a baby camping cot and they provided that as well with bedding.

Cliff Cottage is a special place! The rooms are spacious and clean, with good beds and ensuite bathroom; a great full breakfast served in a nicely decorated dining room (or outdoor); a big garden with comfy chairs (and even sunbeds!) and it's at 2 min walk to the ocean. We saw whales while there, even if not the right season!... More

gorgeous thatch house close to spectacular cliff walk, cafes (on the rocks) and tourist precinct. Lovely standalone cottage with spacious room and old world bath. Delish breakfast and knowledgable, helpful hosts. All up-great value for money

Brian and Leonie was very nice to us. They were very accommodating. Beautiful place it's spacious, clean, comfortable and has nice garden. The area is 100% wheelchair accessible but the only problem was just the shower. Me being in a wheelchair for more than 30 years I recommend that the shower must be transferred to the right side of the... More

This was a perfect spot for the night. We hardly spent any time there other than to put our heads down. We were welcomed warmly and felt very relaxed. Really enjoyed the band practice, got us in the mood for the wedding we were attending. The breakfast was delicious! Thank you!

A most enjoyable stay in this delightful thatched house only a few minutes walk from Hermanus town centre. Our hosts were most welcoming and obliging. My brother had the garden room and spoke very highly of it and my wife and I had a ground floor bedroom just off the lounge (felt as if we had a suite). All very... More

On the plus side, this is a charming building well located for the coast path with spacious accommodation and it's reasonable value. But there is scope for improvement. The woman who greeted us on arrival (she didn't bother to introduce herself or ask our names) seemed quite brusque, telling me to move my car round the block to the rear... More

Unfortunately we only stayed for one night in this beautiful English styled cottage. Brian and Leoni were perfect hosts. Brian arranged a shark cage dive for us the following morning and provided us with all necessary information. They even arranged delicious fruit to go, since we had to leave very early in the morning. Rooms are spacious, clean and fully... More
