We arrived at FrancolinHof a little early but were allowed to leave our cases there while we went out for the afternoon. When we returned they had been carried up to our room. We were on the first floor which gave us a wonderful view of the mountains, town and bay. The room was spacious with a very comfortable bed....

The location of this guest house is so lovely. It is located at the foot of the mountains at the end of a street with fantastic views of the surrounding mountains, Hermanus and the bay.You feel that you can almost reach out and touch nature from your balcony! The sugarbirds were constantly feeding on the proteas that surround the house....

What a find! Set high above Hermanus bay just outside of the town and adjacent to the mountain reserve. Hours were 'wasted' watching the sugarbirds feeding from the protea, guinea fowl and their chicks, francolin and baboons wandering in from the reserve and through the garden. What a location with distant views of the bay! Mary is the perfect host...

Location is everything with the guest house. Right against the mountain slopes with a beautiful garden to boot. The hosts are ultra helpful sorting out restaurants, advising on things to do and even offering a pick up from the local market! If you do one thing whilst staying I suggest the coastal walk, about 2.5hrs with some great views.
