“A wonderful find!”
Reviewed February 22, 2009

Excellently located right next to spectacular cliff paths. Each room is designed differently and very eloquently styled to a Victorian theme. I would (and have) highly recommended this guest house to family and friends. Our room had a wonderful large spa bath. Excellent breakfast included, on site secure parking, friendly staff and relaxing stay!

We had booked the honeymoon suite as a special treat. We could not believe it. Beautifully fitted out, with lovely bathroom and spa. We could sit on the terrace (it does look over the road, which is not particularly busy) and see the whales. We did not try to see them from the bed as advertised but I am sure we could have done.

The staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble. They even went to the trouble to put a CD player in our room (we didn't ask them) so we could watch our whale watching video.

Safe walk into town for good restaurants (recommended by the hotel)

We would just love to go there again

We contacted the property directly and got a beautiful room. Every room has got another title and style. We had a warm welcome and felt at home. From our window we could see the whales and this was really exciting.

The breakfast was fantastic and the check out was very nice. She gave us a lot of ideas for the trip and gave us all information.

We enjoyed the stay very much and will come back to see you again!

This guesthouse is absolutely beautiful and well positioned in Hermanus. The service is also fantastic. Unfortunately we had appalling weather during our stay but I would not hesitate to return to really make the most of this fantastic location.
