I spent one night in the Potting Shed. We arrived in Hermanus with no prebooked accommodation. Someone recommended the Potting Shed and I spent a comfortable night there. I only wish I could have stayed longer but they were fully booked unfortunately. So next time I plan to spend time in Hermanus I will make sure to book in good... More

Rooms were clean if small. The bathroom was especially tight. Not enough room for all guests to park. Breakfast was nice. a bit regimental with all the rules and regulations posted around the property.

Very friendly owners, rooms are well furbished and styled, shoer is working perfect and the breakfast is more than OK. Also the place where the Potting Shed is is close to the city center of Hermanus. So no problem to go there

For our stay in Hermanus we picked The Potting Shed. The accomodation was clean and comfortable with newly furnished interior. The place was a little outside of the tourist-center of Hermanus but with the car just a couple of minutes and parking is very easy to find all around the Hermanus bay/waterfront. Breakfast gave us choices of fresh fruit, eggs... More

The owners were very friendly. The room was nice and clean, but a bit small. Thanks for the cookies on bed on arrival. The breakfast with fruit and pancakes were delicious. We stayed for one night only, but a longer stay is advisable.

The Potting Shed is a great place to stay in Hermanus. The conversion is wonderful with some lovely design touches. Annemarie, Dave and the staff are all very friendly and helpful. The rooms are great - especially room 6 with it's own balcony area. We stayed two days and loved it.

We had a problem with our booked accommodation and Annamarie was extremely helpful in finding a solution. She telephoned the manager of our intended accommodation and solved our problem knowing that she was denying herself a booking. She also proceeded to advise on places to eat and places to visit. We were very impressed with how helpful they were although... More

Yes Don, I remember! You had booked other accommodation and when you arrived at their place - no one was there to greet you or give you a key, so you almost stayed with us! But instead of us taking your money and getting a booking out of you, I made a few calls to the originally booked establishment, and... More
