The Potting Shed Accommodation
Ranked #10 of 86 Hermanus B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 15, 2013

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.

My boyfriend and I needed a place to stay over the New Year's weekend. We had a great experience from the moment we arrived. The staff were so lovely and accommodating, making phonecalls for taxis, and helping us with all of our requests. We stayed in the brand new loft and it was so beautiful and spacious, complete with an outside deck. I would definitely reccomend the loft for couples, there is even a great big bathtub.

Room Tip: The loft room is the way to go!

The Potting Shed is a very nice B&B / Self-catering accommodation located near the main attractions of Hermanus. The atmosphere is relaxed and quiet. The hosts are extremely friendly and the food is excellent. They have a private swimming pool, which is devine to use on the hot summer days. Treat yourself to a well-deserved and relaxing holiday at the Potting Shed.

Room Tip: We staye din Room 2 and there were no issues whatsoever.

In December 2012 my wife and I decided to take the kids on a road trip for a couple of days. One of the places we stayed at was the Potting Shed. We found the staff friendly and efficcient. The rooms were comfortable and clean. We also found the Potting Shed to be situated within ambling distance of all the Hermanus sites and restaurants.The kids enjoyed their surroundings and we all enjoyed an excellent break away.

We stayed at the Potting Shed during our 1 night stay in Hermanus in December and very much enjoyed it. The owners Annemarie and Dave were lovely and made every effort to make us feel comfortable and they prepared the best breakfast we had during our 2 week stay in South Africa - Pancakes!

Hermanus city centre was a short walk away along a beautiful coastal path.

The small little details made this a fantastic stay - coffee upon arrival, lavender flowers folded into the towels and a beautiful breakfast!

We stayed at the Potting Shed for 2 nights in December and we had a lovely time. I can't fault them on anything. The staff were so friendly and helpful. The rooms were comfortable and clean. Walking distance from the all the restaurants and the cliff paths. The best part was the breakfast - they served delicious fresh fruit and the pancakes were yummy!! Will stay there again.

The unit was stylish and comfortable. It was clean when we got there and bedding was as white as snow. During our stay the unit was kept clean at all times. i was surprice to see the beautiful ranavations they did to the Potting shed sins the last time i was there in 2010. you can see by just looking at the Potting Shed that that Dave and Anamarie has really put there hart and soul into the work that was done to the place. Well done Dave and Annamarie. i can but only say thank you the owners Dave and Annamarie for making our stay unforgettable. And thank you to there well trained staff for always being so helpful.
