We stayed one night at the potting shed, the rooms are small, but they are neat and clean. It is great value especially in Hermanus. The only thing we did not enjoy was that our room was right next to the breakfast area, so we could hear all the goings-on. It was a bit noisy around those times. Other than... More

My wife & I attended the Hermanus Fynart Festival over the weekend of June 12 and chose The Potting Shed because of its proximity to many of the Venues. It was a wise choice because the Studio upstairs room was very well equipped for self catering & tastefully furnished. The service & breakfasts were excellent. Our only criticism would be... More

We were impressed with the service,cleanliness and value offered at The Potting Shed. However, we did find the rooms small and, if we had known, would have chosen the larger suites for our stay. The breakfast was very good and the staff friendly and accommodating. A very good experience. Thank you.

What a lovely experience! After a one year wedding anniversary disaster at other accommodation, we were welcomed and accommodated with open arms at the Potting Shed with short notice on our part. The owners are actively involved in the running of this quaint guest house and all the staff are extremely friendly and kind. The attention to detail is excellent... More
