We stayed in the loft accomodation which was superb. There is everything you could possibly need. The living area is large, the bathroom has a lovely bath as well as a stand alone shower. Everything is spotlessly clean. There is an outside decking area solely for that room with comfortable seating area as well as sun loungers. The lovely Doreen...

Very happy with everything. Friendly folk. Above average breakfast. Will definitely stay there when in the Hermanus area. Will recommend to others. Value for money in a upmarket area. Thank you and wish you well.

It was lovely having you stay with us Richard - and we were highly entertained by your name - as I'm sure everyone is. Hope to see you again soon! :)

We stayed in 2 double rooms in Jan 2017, rooms were nice and clean, service was good and breakfast was also nice. If you have a big car, parking in their parking lot can be a bit adventurous as there is a pretty narrow driveway.

Lovely rooms with private patio, good sized and modern bathrooms. 5 mins walk from the coast and 10 mins into town. Nice quiet location but close to amenities. Beautiful coastal path walks and...

We stayed a week, were very well looked after, and would recommend the deluxe rooms for a long stay....room 4 being the quietest. Its position in relation to the centre of town (for restaurants etc) is good for those who like a brisk 10 minute walk. ( Parking in town is usually available at different rates, depending on which area...

Thank you Louis and Judi for your review. It was lovely having you stay with us. You were wise to book a deluxe room for a long stay as these rooms are much more spacious than the standard rooms. We have 6 rooms in total and 6 parking bays - but yes you are correct, sometimes guests are not so...

Absolutely fantastic stay at The Potting Shed guesthouse. Super attention to detail, wonderful decor in the rooms, great bathroom, and a lovely outside patio area. The breakfast was a highlight, with delicious rusks, muesli, quiches, and excellent coffee. We will definitely return. The only thing missing was a radio / music channel on the TV, for some music.

Rooms were excellent; bathroom and room finishes were comparable to 4 to 5 star accommodation. Friendly staff; and located in quiet street close to the centre of town - very ideal. Breakfast was wonderful with home made bread a special treat.
