We had a wonderful stay. The amenities are excellent. The Managers were delightful and the breakfast out of this world. It is close to the village and just across from the cliff walk. It is a beautiful cottage and wonderfully decorated.

Lovely cottage near the sea and only a short walk to the nearby town of Hermanus. Hosts were friendly and very accommodating and both the cottage and town had everything we hoped for. Would definitely recommend

Wonderful place to stay in Hermanus. Location gave very easy access to the cliff walk and a quick stroll into town. We were made to feel very welcome and the rooms were charming and very comfortable. Home cooked breakfast was great!

Could not think of a better place for staying in Hermanus (and we've been around). Comfortable and spacious rooms, a quiet garden, a decent (but not spectacular) breakfast, a short walk to the town center and above all a pair of welcoming and helpful hosts. Without discussion the first choice for our next visit. One note: the indoor lounging facilities...

Perfectly situated in Hermanus with the cliff walk over the road and a short walk into town. Accommodation very comfortable and an excellent breakfast. A most enjoyable and relaxing stay. The hosts are very friendly and helpful.

Cliff Cottage gardens were beautifully manicured, providing the colorful butterflies space to dance amongst the flowering plants and trees in the sunshine. We loved the fabulous hosts Brian and Leoni and their kind sincere service. They suggested we visit Panthera Big Cat conservancy. This rescue project hosts large feline creatures in need. It is a worthwhile and conscious educational endeavor...

Hermanus is absolutely stunning especially during the Whale festival when there is plenty of wildlife to view along the seafront or out on the boats. Staying somewhere like Cliff Cottage was amazing and really completed my visit. It's a beautiful building with lovely rooms and Brian and Leonie are perfect hosts. They are both very friendly and had plenty of...

The B&B is in a thatched cottage on the inland side of West Cliff Road, a short walk from town, and could be a great place. The infrastructure is there: The two rooms we had (1 and 2) were nice and large. However, we had to ask for an extra heater to be comfortable any place other than under the...
