“Most Grand of Guesthouses”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2014

The most delicious omlettes alongside a lavish breakfast spread - every morning! Auberge Provence is a diamond in Hermanus with luxury bedding, spacious bathrooms and a beautiful house. It feels as if you are in France in the Western Cape! The house is run by the very efficient Hazel and Janita who provide every convenice before you have even thought of it. We hope to return one day!

Reading through the other reviews they are all 100% truthful and correct. What a amazing time away. Auberge is beautiful inside, stunning views, friendly and accommodating staff in every area, breakfast was beyond words. Our 3 year old son was treated in the same manner. Overall our stay was amazing and can't wait to go back again. Thanks to Hazel, Juanita and everyone else behind the scene.

We thoroughly enjoyed a romantic getaway at Auberge Provence. The cliff's edge location is superb with beautiful sea views and easy access to scenic walking trails. Hospitality cannot be faulted whilst the high-class facilities are excellent.

I was recently spoilt to a night at stunning Auberge provence in Hermanus. Our room was beautiful with a little balcony overlooking the sea and from where we watched the most amazing sunset. The bathroom was done so beautifully and the bedroom as well. The staff so freindly and helpful. Breakfast was delicious, so all in all a really lovely experience, i felt so relaxed and rejuvinated after my stay. Thanks again, will definitely be back.

My fiance and I checked into Auberge to celebrate our recent engagement and were spoilt beyond belief. The hospitality and attention to detail were out of this world, we were treated like royalty and enjoyed every minute of our stay - we will be returning to this special place very soon!

we spent all our time in Cape town and we were fortunate enough to spend our last night in this little gem of a place in herms. Everything from arrival to check out was all we would ever need. The perfect place for a relaxing break. The staff and management could not do enough for us. Cant wait to go back in August.

Room Tip: All the rooms have great sea views

Together with my husband we spent two last days of our 2-week South African journey in this guesthouse. What a jewel ! A tiny yet very comfortable hotel, intimate atmosphere, exemplary cleanliness, all this just two steps from the city centre with a breathtaking view on the ocean. Hospitality out of this world that could inspire many five star hotels.
Both of us were spoilt not only with the comfort but also with excellent food. Breakfast was outstanding, top quality fresh fruits, home made lukewarm muffins straight from the oven. It is the first time in our life that someone asks us what kind of music we would like to listen to while having breakfast ! The afternoon tea served on a beautiful platter (with cakes that were simply mouthwatering) makes this outstanding guesthouse home. Special thanks to Sandra and janita who made us feel so special. Coming to Hermanus is a wonderful experience, coming to Auberge Provence is an unforgettable souvenir.

Room Tip: 2 rooms located at the corners have jacuzzi

Thank you so much your complimentary review. To be referred to as a true diamond, is an accolade that we truly appreciate. We are so glad that you enjoyed the hospitality, the beautiful views, the location and the cleanliness of the house. It is especially gratifying to hear that you enjoyed our breakfasts and high teas, as we really enjoy preparing them for our guests, along with providing music of your choice. We loved having you both and are very happy it was a good end to your South African experience. We hope to welcome you back soon.
