I spent a too short night at this lovely place high up against the mountain of Hermanus. My room was perfect - lovely king-size bed and bedding; bathroom big and modern; tv, the usual coffee/tea etc was there, as well as a microwave. It was a cold night but I was warm and cozy. I think my bed was brand-new,... More

Friendly , relaxing and charmy house in the cost. They make you feel at home. Perfect place for 2-3 days close Cape town. The breakfast was great. One of the best omeletes i've never tried. In summer you can swim at the pool,...we couldn't,....so cold weather...

We had the Double Room with Mountain View, the best view of all the rooms in the B&B. Lovely dining area with a cosy fireplace that roars all day long. Room was just what we needed for an overnight stay. Very luxurious bed, spotlessly clean room and a lovely sunny private deck.

The peaceful atmosphere inside the house is soul soothing. The reception was warm and with open arms. I would highly recommend this B & B if you want to have a memorable holiday. I must say we were disappointed that we could not stay another day because you were fully booked. The manager is amazing!!

Warm friendly greeting on arrival with clear explanation of "things to do". Introduction to facilities and service excellent throughout our stay. Would highly recommend venue to anyone. Maintenance of rooms done very well and everything worked without having to ask for help at anytime. Excellent breakfast served and love the fireplace and relaxing area together with the views.

Second time I have stayed there and will do it again. The setting in a quiet area at the foot of the mountain is special. Very friendly service with a different breakfast every day Great value for money

Between the breath taking views, immaculate decor, excellent service, customer care, jaw dripping breakfast and overall interaction you cannot help but be confused on what to compliment most. I sincerely felt at home and I cannot wait to return :-)

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Because 78on5th is owner run it is your home away from home. Situated at the foot of the Musselberg Mountains bordering the Fernkloof Nature Reserve we are walking distance from the world famous Grotto beach with its Blue flag status. This makes us the ideal holiday or overnight destination - especially when visiting during Whale season.Enjoy a luxurious sleep while the mountains echo the calming sounds of the sea before you wake up to a delicious breakfast with a difference. ... more   less
