We had a lovely two-night stay at Aloe Guest House for part of our two weeks adventuring in South Africa - we only wish our time in Hermanus been longer! The room was spacious, bed was very comfortable, and the hospitality is top notch. Lesley and John were out of town the weekend we were there but their friends Francois and Karla were incredibly helpful in all of my specific requests for things like local Afrikaans cuisine or braai to fulfill my memories from when I studied in South Africa while I was in university 17 years ago. We used Hermanus as our base to explore Cape Agulhas and visit the beautiful area beaches. Coming home to the Aloe Guest House and having a nice dip in the plunge pool after a hot day of adventures was just lovely. Excellent breakfast each morning hit the spot, too!

Superfriendly and interesting and helpful recommendations from the hosts. You can ask John for any recommendations for golf, hiking, trips, excursations and he will please you with great knowledge and some extra flavours. The breakfast was fantastic with many good options. Rooms were big enough, nice and clean, albeit a little outdated

We had a wonderful two night stay at the Aloe Guest House. Lesley and John are so welcoming and friendly and helped us book our activities while we were in Hermanus. The rooms are big and exceptionally clean with all the amenities you would expect. The guest house is a very short walk into town and even though it is situated on a main road, we can honestly say that we did not hear any road traffic at all. Breakfast was excellent and tasty too with a variety of choices. We will definitely stay there again the next time we visit Hermanus.

I loved every moment of staying at Aloe House Hermanus. John and Lesley are such incredible, warm hosts - John even helped us find some really great restaurants to have dinner at, as well as directions. I am always going to make sure that when I travel to Hermanus that I will always stay at this gorgeous guest house. The family suite was an absolute highlight, I had the most divine sleep of my life, those pillows and that bed - arrrgh so good! I have stayed at a few wonderful places in my time, this was a definite fave!
