This is a modest establishment that is modestly priced; however the service could not be bettered. We booked very late (beginning of December 2012) for a Xmas trip to Hermanus due to change of family plans. We had spent a few happy nights at The Potting Shed the previous Xmas so rang Annamarie from the UK. She went way out of her way to find 14 nights accommodation as we were getting desperate; to do so Annamarie phoned more than a dozen places in Hermanus on our behalf before ringing us back to confirm success. We were able to spend several nights at The Potting Shed, enjoyed its nearness to town centre (10 min walk away) and then had a few nights over Xmas itself at their sister establishment - self catering near the new harbour - as well as a bit of luxury in the Harbour House Hotel.

Furthermore there was not a hired car to be had in Cape Town when we booked our flights; we were giving up hope and we were considering a taxi from the airport when Anne-Marie came up trumps again for us having located and booked a car locally. Local knowledge saved the day! Quiet and friendly; the domestic staff were charming as well.
