After reading everyone else's reviews, I can't believe that we stayed in the same place. Hermanus is a wonderful place with lots to do, including watching Southern Right whales from the coastal path. There are numerous hotels and guest houses and lots of restaurants to choose from. We stayed at The Potting Shed for two nights on a three week trip touring the west coast and the Western Cape of South Africa. Of the 10 different places that we stayed in, this was by far the worst. Our room was one of three in the main building. The room was tastefully decorated, although there was not much space to move around. The bed was composed of two seperate divans and the mattress sagged terribly in the middle of each divan. We both had backache after the first night. The bathroom was tiny and took a little bit of negotiating to get in and out of when you wanted to close the doors. The guests information book was full of rules, the wording of which made you wonder if there had been a problem with previous guests. Breakfast was a mediocre affair, where you had to nominate the night before whether you wanted cooked or continental breakfast. This place is okay but for the price (R550) there must be better places to stay in Hermanus.
