It's more like someone's house, than a hotel (in a good way). Downstairs everything is open plan and the views over the beach are stunning. Lovely different comfy sofa areas to sit and have drinks. We were pretty much the only ones there so we had the run of the place, as did our one year old, which was good because the sunbathing area and pool was quite small. The rooms were tastefully done and really spacious with a separate kitchen area and amazing free standing shower, double sink and huge bath in the bathroom. The only downside was that there is no air con but they said there was enough through breeze at night but we didn't want to keep the windows open due to mossies so it did get a little uncomfortable. Breakfasts were great and we had dinner twice and both times it was delicious and we could watch the chef at work in the open plan kitchen. There's not a huge amount to do in the immediate vicinity and its about a 10 min drive from central hermanus. However, it is a lovely intimate hotel and makes you feel like you are in your own home (only better!).
