Fabulous! Stayed in the garden suite - stunning and very comfortable. Staff were excellent. Children loved the pool - even in July. Would highly recommend this wonderful place.

Spectacular. If looks are anything to go by this place will make a fine impression. The staff are extremely friendly and very accommodating, we had a mix up with our dates and arrived a day late but there was no problem at all and we were put into the finest of rooms. There is very relaxed atmosphere surrounding this guest house and while it is a little bit of a walk into the centre of Hermanus, what a walk it is along the beachfront path - well worth the effort! Breakfast was top notch also and nothing was a problem. Very impressed overall and will certainly re-visit though next time I will make sure the whales are in season. Check out the massive carp in the pond too!
