We enjoyed our stay at Hermanus Dorpshuys, lovely and big rooms and Cecilia goes out of her way to make you feel at home. I forgot two dresses and they were sent to Capetown, perfectly packed, so attentive!

I like this place a lot. The house looks like a historic house (perhaps it is) and the interior is elegantly decorated; I imagine this is the sort of place a gentleman would take residence in a century ago. The dining area looks out to the inner yard with a dipping pool (didn't use), all the tables are set with...

The owners are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is too good for words and is very well presented. The stay felt very homely. I loved the way the family enjoyed my Harley Davidson. I will definitely stay there again.

A VERY NEAT and CLEAN guest house well located within walking distance from the old harbour. Hosts Koos and Cecilia are very friendly and were very helpful in providing information about the town and restaurants. Breakfast was tastefully prepared. Definitely recommended!!!
