Disclosure: I mainly chose to stay at Eastbury as i know the owner (Jenny) very slightly. Nevertheless, I'll try to be objective.
Lots to like about Eastbury. A large lovely 1940s house in a quiet tree-lined surburban street. It's the perfect walking distance (15min) from town centre and harbour. I felt very safe walking around at night. 'Rose Room' is massive with lots of cupboard space and even a dining room size table! Kitchenette very well equipped for those who want to cook their own breakfast or dinner. We are gluten-free and Eastbury breakfast was lovely esp the fresh fruit and yogurt.
Management very friendly and accommodating to guests. They know Hermanus well and can provide plenty advice. Place is spotless and has lovely large lounge in which to read etc. All rooms have TV. Lots of little extras such as limitless, good quality tea bags etc. Bird life in garden was a lovely bonus. My only concern was the mattress was too firm for my liking.
It was very good value esp for Hermanus which is prime tourist destination.
