    Rooms were adequately spacious, clean and well decorated..great option for a night stay in Hermanus while travelling on a budget. The staff was friendly and provided for all requirements. The location was a little inside the town, but supermarkets were within accessible reach.

    Hi Andrea, thanks for your message. We don't have air conditioning, generally not needed as evenings are usually quite bearable even in summer. We have plenty of parking though. Kind regards, Hayley
