Reviewed June 12, 2014

We enjoyed a two-night stay at the Potting Shed Guest house and loved every minute of it. A quiet, tranquil place with super friendly owners and staff made our stay very memorable! We would definitely recommend it as a holiday destination for anyone seeking a quiet getaway...

We stayed in the S/C Unit which was perfect for our little family getaway which included Granny and two toddlers.
There was able space, everything we needed and a lovely lawn outside the unit for the kids to play. The extra service from Dave was great he made great recommendations on local activities and booked these accordingly for us. The only downfall is the unit is a bit out of town and on the outskirts of town are informal settlements but the security was good at the complex.

Thank you Ingrid for you comments. Glad your stay was a good one. Yep the self catering apartments are 3kms form our guest house and from the town. Hermanus in general is a pretty safe place - guess no place in the world is 100% crime free, but all in all - Hermanus is a cool place to be and safety not the biggest issue.

Hope you return to our beautiful town again soon! It's so stunning at the moment with so many whales in the bay.

Nice clean rooms, friendly owners and great breakfast. Personal touch in all room and public areas. Short distance to the center approx. 10 -15 min. walk..
Short walk to the view point over the ocean, great walking patth along the sea.

I would recommend The Potting Shed to anyone who intends to escape the city life for a few days. The rooms are very neat and cozy and the breakfast options are superb and caters for kosher and halal guests too.

We stayed in an apartment which was a little way from the potting shed b&b itself. We found it a little weird driving into a gated community as the location was a little remote. However, the view from the apartment was spectacular. The accommodation was extremely clean and well equipped. Having washing facilities was a huge bonus to us. Hermanus is well worth the visit, it costs nothing to sit at the waterfront and watch wales frolicking in the sea.
