We stayed at the Marine Beachfront Guesthouse for just one night but can't really fault it. You get the feeling that its success is all down to the manager, Beth, who has an amazing eye for detail. Every candle is lit, there's gentle background music, a lovely fragrance in the air, a glass of wine is served on arrival and she goes out of her way to make time for every guest. The breakfast, served by Beth and a very charming chef, is all cooked to order and extremely fresh.
The only downside is the location - it's a car journey in to town. It didn't bother us as it is literally just a five minute trip but it's not a walk in to Hermanus. The upside is some great views, particularly from the front or side facing balcony rooms.
I must also thank Beth for the recommendations for our onward trip to Plettenburg Bay - we worked through her list of places to eat and visit and they were all spot on.
