This is just TERRIFIC....the accommodation was pristine...the attention to detail way beyond what you would expect of a guest house....Cecilia clearly takes great pride in her home and loves what she does...and loves Hermanus..she was full of information about the place, best restaurants in the area including their menus and an offer to book one for you...she couldn't do enough...

Beautiful garden and breakfast room and spacious traditionally decorated bedrooms. Really felt like you were a guest in someone's house rather than a bland hotel room. The host, Cecilia, was so helpful and had amazing attention to detail in the way she ran the place - constantly refreshed milk & biscuits, glasses provided when she noticed we had drinks in...

We sadly only stayed one night. This guesthouse is perfection. The owners, Roos & Cecilia, were very welcoming, & have thought of everything for the guest's comfort & enjoyment. The house is beautiful inside and out & we hope to return one day. Thanks for a lovely stay.

A charming, beautiful guesthouse in a great location for strolling into town and exploring local area. Our room was well appointed with comfortable bed and large bathroom. A lovely garden to relax in. Our hosts were attentive, amusing, thoughtful, informative and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you Koos and Cecelia!!

Top quality guest house with very comfortable rooms, excellent breakfast (wide choice, well cooked and nicely presented) and wonderful hosts who couldn't do enough for you. Good location in a smart residential area just a short walk from Hermanus centre - shops and restaurants. Would stay again and thoroughly recommend.

Beautiful guest house, stylishly furnished throughout. Cecilia, the owner was a wonderful host, offering assistance and advice throughout our stay, and especially when my wife was ill on the last morning of our stay. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone considering a stay in Hermanus. Look no further than Hermanus Dorphuys.

The only bad point is they have no smoking corner. Why they don`t install a smoking point behind the house with a small table and a chair and a little bit protected from rain. Breakfast is fine as well the place of the guest house.

Unfortunately by law, no smoking under a roof around the guesthouse is allowed. As you will find in a previous review, that we was penalised for allowed smoking in the back garden. We must abide by the law, or can lose our consent from the municipality to run the guesthouse. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay other wise....
