We loved our stay at The Potting Shed - friendly English ex-pat owners and management team, recently refurbished rooms were so comfortable (we stayed in the deluxe room, #4) and pretty and the location is peaceful but well placed for activities... plus BEST breakfast we had during our South Africa trip!! Highly recommended

Loved Hermanus and the Potting Shed was an ideal place to base ourselves. The room was excellent and had great shower. The breakfast was lovely and the owners couldn't have been more helpful and would love to go back and would recommend to all my friends and family.

The Potting Shed was the perfect place for our stay in South Africa - from the accommodation itself (especially the cleanliness, decor and huge beds!), to the ideal location and welcoming hosts. It was such a lovely place to stay and we can't thank Annamarie and Dave enough for giving us such a warm welcome to Hermanus! Would highly recommend...

You know when you've found something special, this is what I feld when I walked into the Potting Shed. OK, there's no reception as such, everyone is busy, but the eventual welcome was warm. The decor is African themed contemporary and stylish, I would descibe it as a boutique guest house. The breakfast was lovely with lots of choice and...

We stayed at the Potting Shed for two nights. What a little gem, all bedrooms tastefully furnished with lots of little extras. Ann-Marie and David were so welcoming. Gave us recommendations for dinner, which we used - and was fantastic. Also booked a wine tour for us, equally good. Nothing was too much trouble. Decided to do a "braai" on...

Our room was immaculate and beautifully furnished and decorated.The entire experience, including the delicious breakfast, could not be faulted and we will definitely be returning and recommending to others.

To be honest, we were in doubt if we would give this hotel 3, 4 or 5 dots. Because the room was really too small, we really couldn't give 5 dots. But the service was very good at the hotel and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and breakfast is good, so 3 dots would...

Thank you for your review. Glad you enjoyed your stay - (except for the room size). When we renovated in 2013 we converted our family rooms to "Deluxe" and revamped an old loft in to a "studio room" which is spacious with an indoor and outdoor seating area, not to mention private sundeck. We advise that anyone wanting that extra...

Annamarie and David are excellent hosts. We just turned up and they were ready to go the extra mile to meet our expectations (we found them in the "Lonely Planet" guide) - and then some!. They are great ambassadors for the town of Hermanus, and for tourism in South Africa in general.
