Wonderful place to stay in Hermanus. Location gave very easy access to the cliff walk and a quick stroll into town. We were made to feel very welcome and the rooms were charming and very comfortable. Home cooked breakfast was great!

Could not think of a better place for staying in Hermanus (and we've been around). Comfortable and spacious rooms, a quiet garden, a decent (but not spectacular) breakfast, a short walk to the town center and above all a pair of welcoming and helpful hosts. Without discussion the first choice for our next visit. One note: the indoor lounging facilities...

Cliff Cottage gardens were beautifully manicured, providing the colorful butterflies space to dance amongst the flowering plants and trees in the sunshine. We loved the fabulous hosts Brian and Leoni and their kind sincere service. They suggested we visit Panthera Big Cat conservancy. This rescue project hosts large feline creatures in need. It is a worthwhile and conscious educational endeavor...

Hermanus is absolutely stunning especially during the Whale festival when there is plenty of wildlife to view along the seafront or out on the boats. Staying somewhere like Cliff Cottage was amazing and really completed my visit. It's a beautiful building with lovely rooms and Brian and Leonie are perfect hosts. They are both very friendly and had plenty of...

The B&B is in a thatched cottage on the inland side of West Cliff Road, a short walk from town, and could be a great place. The infrastructure is there: The two rooms we had (1 and 2) were nice and large. However, we had to ask for an extra heater to be comfortable any place other than under the...

Thank you for taking the time to review Cliff Cottage. Your comments and recommendations are noted. We're pleased we were able to provide you with additional heaters.

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.

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!...
