“First trip to S. Africa”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

Excellent value, service, and friendliness. Even met us on late arrival when our plans changed slightly. Charming decor. Awesome breakfast. Great help with side trips. Stay here. They were so friendly. We felt right at home.

Received a friendly greeting, and felt right at home. Very relaxed atmosphere and room had extended this relaxed feeling as it was clean and the bed most welcoming. You can be sure of seeing me on a regular basis.

We were here for two nights and we enjoyed it very much. We got a bigger room than were we payed for, because there were no other guests.
Jose and Ton did everything for us. The electricity in our kitchen was not working and we could come cook in the kitchen of the owners. In the evening when the 'technical part' of the owners was back, he directly came and repaired (in only one minute) the electricity.
The breakfast was delicious! Special adapted to our wishes. A starter with fresh orange juice andn fruitsalad of yoghurt and after that nice roasted bread with jam or a very nice omelet, what you want.
We want to come back here one night if we have a possibility to come!!
The best B&B in our trip and maybe in the whole Western Cape of South Africe. They need a nomination!
ps. Nice detail: in one of our conversations we discovered that one of the owners was living for 20 years in our village of birth (in the Nederlands). How small is the world!

Room Tip: We don't know for sure, but we think the room downstairs is the only room that would not be very...

Good service, cheap, splendid mountain view and affordable.

The room was equipped with double bed, large bathroom and access to private terrace.

Only shortcoming: wifi was only avaliable in the areas close to the front door.

This is definitely the place to stay if you are looking for something that is affordable, but still offers excellent service. Jose is really helpful and had a lot of great restaurant recommendations. The property’s location is beautiful and the views of the mountain is breathtaking. The location is absolutely perfect, its away from the busy town centre and there is a lovely restaurant close by who serves amazing food. We will definitely be using this property again if we go to Hermanus. Our stay was absolutely lovely.

Room Tip: Mountain facing rooms have a better view and you are closer to the pool area.

As this was the cheapest place we stayed in on our SA adventure we were unsure what to expect. What we found though was a great guest house with friendly staff, extremely spacious accommodation and excellent value for money. Interesting breakfast which changes daily. Really nice pool area which we enjoyed using and had all to ourselves!Would definitely return if staying in Hermanus. We ate at Burgundy Restaurant which was amazing-a highlight of our stay in SA-best book as we did or you may be disappointed!

We could not visit South Africa without staying in Hermanus, and that means at 78on5th
We love it here, very relaxing and very friendly hosts, Jose and John.
Everything clean and styish with lovely sculptures and pictures.
Would like to think we will be back in 2014
