A lot of reviews highlight that the place looks tired, or feels old etc. But for a budget accommodation one shouldn't expect more than you actually pay for. Our unit (number 7, sea facing 2 people flat) was clean and everything you needed was there (cutlery, utensils, towels, etc). Indeed there was an outdated feel to it and you can't help but thinking how they could redo and improve the place, but then again...prices will have to go up. The location is great, you're literally in the center of town and the view is amazing. However, the small wall around your veranda does mean anyone can just hop over. This did make one feel a bit unsafe, a guard did walk around the premises throughout the night. The unit was very cold, but we brought a little heater and it warmed up great. So yes, it is old and outdated, but to have a view like that with all the basic essentials you need, for that price, is definitely worth a visit. Should you require more luxury etc there are so many other places in Hermanus...
