We stayed in Francolinhof in beautiful Hermanus with our two small children and were very delighted with our stay! The owners were very welcoming and friendly and prepared a delicious breakfast for us every morning! Our table was always equipped with plastic plates and cups for the kids and the baboons walked past the window, which was a major attraction!... More

Lovely guesthouse, comfortable and from the rooms you have a beautiful view down to the sea. Adjoining FrancolinHof is Fernkloof Nature reserve, where you can go for walks. The owners Mary andJean are very helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would go back anytime. Leny
