Great staff. Very helpful. Bed a little hard and so uncomfortable. Also needed to be cleaned underneathe as it was dusty. Breakfast was very good. Parking a little difficult because of the size of our people carrier.

The room was very well cared for, down to the last detail, the lounge/diningroom cosy, breakfast super, but what impressed us most is the kindness and helpfulness of the owner and her son. She figured out all we needed and more, he prepared us twice an excellent dinner! A very sympathetic place!

This must be one of our favourite B& B!.WE had a very spacious and attractive room, the breakfasts were outstanding and all was brightness and delight, partly due to the colourful paintings and decor, but mostly due to the lovely personalities of Dee and Jason, our hosts, and their staff. Thank you for a most memorable 3-night stay.

Only stayed one night, The bedroom photo is a true reflection, and the manageress is warm, knows her stuff and the chef , Jason, provided a tasty breakfast. My wife can't eat food containing butter, and Jason was willing to cater for her needs. Situated in a lovely area with secure parking. Breakfast room is stunning. Will be returning there...

Dee was so friendly & helpful. Breakfasts were delicious & enjoyed the markets. Hermanus was so clean & organized - a result of being DA run ?? Only disappointment was no whales for us to watch. Will have to return!

We've enjoyed our stay. The facilities were neat and clean and well maintained. The Hostess was friendly and helpful. The towel warmer in the bathroom is an excellent value add. The breakfasts were excellent and well presented. The only negative is that the pathways aren't all paved and the crushers make it difficult to pull your suitcase.

We arrived late and after checking in went to our room which was a family room for 3, perfect for us. The room was lovely, the beds (for 7 nights) felt like home, we all slept so sound and the area was very quiet so no interruptions. The rooms were cleaned daily, the bathroom was excellent with a great shower...
