The owners of this Guest House really care and this is very evident throughout. Perfect rooms, spotless throughout, great breakfast and within a 10 minute easy walk to the front. TV and wi-fi in rooms. Great showers. In room safe. Small lounge area for drinks and a very comfortable pool area with loungers.

Our stay at The Potting Shed was good, when we arrived we get a warm welcome and a restaurant was reserved for us. The room was good, but a little bit small. We enjoyed out stay at this guest house. Thanks very much for you're hospitality.

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.

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.
