Very comfortable and stylish B&B. Friendly hosts who make you feel at home. Highly recommend Cliff Cottage. Will definitely return. In the heart of Hermanus. Close to popular restaurants, main village and opposite walkway.

We had a wonderful stay, thanks to Brian and Leoni's warm hospitality! The room was full of character, with wooden floors, large lounge area, and crisp linen. The garden offers a pretty tranquil setting under the trees. We will definitely be back!

It's a convenient location with only 10 min walk along the cliffs to the township. We wish we had longer to stay! Rooms are spacious and clean and the beds comfortable. Our only small concern was the...
