Verified reviewvery good

This place is beautifully situated outside the city in a closed compound. The access to the compound was a bit confusing and also the adress was not very easy to find with our car navigation because it is inside a private property. Kitchen and equipment were nice, the place was clean and supplies were good. There was soap and body lotion, coffee and tea.

Robin's Nest is a fantastic little B&B, on the Glenfruin Estate, just past the Whalehaven Winery. I had a self-catering unit, so while I can't comment on breakfast, I was quite pleased with the accommodation. It was safe and the farm-like setting was spectacular. There were Quality Streets on the pillows and some complimentary sherry for evenings on the balcony, which added a lovely touch. There were great restaurants not more than 500m away as well as a Woolworths Food. Sandra was a great host and I'd definitely recommend Robin's Nest to anyone looking for a comfortable place for a weekend in Hermanus. Garmin might struggle to find 10 Robin's Nest though, as there seemed to be a lack of street names, so here are the approximate co-ordinates if you've got a Sat Nav Device: S34 24.604 E19 11.964
