The Potting Shed Accommodation
Ranked #11 of 86 Hermanus B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 28, 2012

We stayed here for a night and would've liked to stay longer to explore Hermanus more as it seems like a very nice town. Our room was lovely, the bathroom was quite small but it served it's purpose. Breakfast was good with a choice of cooked breakfast or home made pancakes. The owner was very helpful with local information and tips for were to visit - if you get the chance, go and see the penguins at Betty's Bay. From the B&B you can walk along the cliff path to the centre of town were there are a few nice restaurants.

I was on business in Hermanus. About the Potting Shed Accommodation I can write only well.
Good location, good conditions for rest and work, available wireless Internet.
I liked breakfast served here. It was proposed scrambled or fried eggs, I like eggs.
Annemarie and Dave are open and ready for any assistance.
Only surprise for me was that I had to prepay 100% to company cooperating with Potting Sheed some weeks before arrival.
There were small difficulties to obtain invoice for 100% payment.
However Annemarie and Dave helped me in this matter too.

In Hermanus there is always a warm welcome from Annamarie and Dave. Nothing can be too much trouble for them. It has become my home from home in Hermanus and wonderful to enjoy their hospitality, great company and even support Dave down at the cricket club. It's the best way to chill out properly and get ot know the locals too, over a beer or two or even a bottle of wine.

We stayed in the self catering unit of the Potting Shed for 3 nights. It is now our first choice for a weekend away. The unit has stunning sea views and is only a few metres from the beach. Annemarie and Dave sorted out the DSTV so that we could watch sport and recommended splendid restaurants to us. They are very friendly and helpful and go out of their way to make your stay an enjoyable one. The unit is first class and the rates are very reasonable. We will definitely encourage our friends to stay at The Potting Shed or the self catering unit as we thoroughly enjoyed our weekend there. Kevin & Jeanette Wearing – Gordon’s Bay.

If you are looking for a quiet, comfortable B/B close to the sea and city centre, with delicious breakfasts, then look no further than The Potting Shed. Rooms are on the small side, without any view to speak of, but who goes to Hermanus to stay in their bedroom? The owners Annamarie and Dave offer a warm and friendly welcome, and are always on hand if you need any advice on local restaurants and local attractions. Great value for money!

My husband and I were only able to stay one night on a B&B basis but Annamarie and David couldn't have been more accommodating. They were extemely helpful in suggesting where to eat and how to get into the centre of Hermanus without having to take the car. Breakfast was excellent and we had a good nights sleep. Would thoroughly recommend this establishment.
