The penguino is a fantastically comfortable guesthouse which made us feel right at home from the start. The room was extremely comfortable with a delightfully relaxing bed and plenty of space.

The location was exceptional. A 10 minute walk into the town centre where there are some great restaurants, and within a minutes walk down to the cliff walk. Within 90 seconds of leaving the guesthouse we found a huge southern right whale and calf.

Most impressive though was the hospitality of the owners. Both Stephan and Nikki were exceptionally welcoming, provided us with a superb breakfast, great tips, and were a joy to talk to.

Room tip: Emperor penguin room is great

Exceptionally spacious room and fabulously comfortable bed. Gourmet breakfasts! Nikki & Stefan are truly hospitable hosts. A thoroughly appealing stay. We won't hesitate to return and highly recommend.

Had a very pleasant stay. The room was spacious with everything that we needed. Hosts were great and we were positively surprised about the great breakfast that was prepared to our wishes. Location is very convenient for the coastal path, for whale watching and it is only 15 min on foot to the city center. We had a good night's sleep, because it is a quiet (and safe) area.

Myself and another 5 guests stayed here with Stefan and Nikki and what a pleasure it was. They were the most accommodating loveliest hosts and that was just their two gorgeous doggies.

Breakfast was perfect every morning and included a special of the day. The rooms were spotless and the social areas including the pool were equally as lovely. I would return to the penguino without a doubt should i travel back to Hermanus. In addition, they even prepared a braai for us which was possibly the best steak i have ever tasted. If you want a home away from home go see these two. They made our stay perfect and were more than welcoming. Nothing was too big or small. The wifi worked great throughout. Hope to see u guys again and give my love to pippa and Harvey
