Penguino guesthouse's 4 rooms are tastefully and individually decorated with high quality finishes, each with en-suite bathrooms. We are a small family run guesthouse we pride ourselves to give warm, friendly personal style of hospitality. As we are just 40 m from the famous cliff paths and a 7 minute walk to the center of town. Stefan and Nikki Otto are looking forward to welcoming you to Penguino... come and breath our Champagne air!

We booked last minute and unfortunately could only be accommodated for one night. However, Stephan phoned a friend and fixed us up further along the road for the rest of our stay. Our room was clean, comfortable and large. At breakfast my gluten free dietary requirements were very well catered for and I even enjoyed the house speciality pancakes. The hospitality of the hosts was outstanding and they advised on events happening in Hermanus during the weekend and the best places to eat. Penguino was situated just by the cliff path into town and it was an easy stroll into town. We enjoyed our visit.

Penguino is an excellent choice. Its quiet and clean and the hosts are very friendly and helpful. The guesthouse is minutes from the bustling town, and you can walk along the stunning coastal cliff walk either direction. The rooms are spacious and nicely decorated. Ask to try their in-house wine!

Our room was spacious and very clean with everything you need. Comfortable, large bed. Stefan and Nikki are very friendly, helpful and informative. The location is really good with a short walk to town and restaurants and just across the road from the cliff top walks. The scenery is lovely. We would love to return during Whale season and will definitely be staying in Penguino Guesthouse. Thanks for looking after us.

we got to know the friendliest and most helpful hosts from Hermanus. We had a bright, large room with a partially glazed balcony. Stefan's best breakfast, which he freshly prepared himself with specials that change daily was served at the pool at our request. It is only five minutes from the guest house to the Cliff Path. You can even walk to the restaurants.
