Lovely spacious studio and outside space. Spotless bathroom and good small pool. A lot of traffic noise and small bed disappointing. Very good fresh fruit at breakfast but annoying laminated sheet to choose in advance. DIY toast, small yogurt pots and foil wrapped butter a bit old fashioned. Strange to pay on arrival rather than departure too. A bit too...

Dear Anonymous, Thank you for your comment about the clean bathroom, spacious Studio and outside area. Sorry you found the bed too small. The studio room has a queen size bed. However the deluxe rooms have king size beds. The purpose of the laminated breakfast sheet the night before is to find out if everyone wants fresh fruit prepared for...

Booked the studio apartment for a week which was excellent as it gave us our own space to relax. Owners and staff very helpful with advice and assistance with restaurant reservations etc. Easy and safe walking into town - ideal location.

We really had a great time in The Potting Shed. We loved our room and breakfast was great. One day we found a big spider in our room, but Doreen saved us and captured it and let it free at the other side of the road. Overal al a good atmosphere!!

They are well located in a quiet street quite close to town. The room was very clean and comfortable but extremely small... Even difficult to open our suitcases. Parking is tight and the breakfast is quite basic too. The owners are rather brusque, and, although helpful, have little time for small talk

Oh dear...it sounds like you must have caught one of us on an off day. :( We have 8 check-ins today and already done two, spending between 30-45 minutes with them chatting and telling them about the town and restaurants. We try to make every guest feel welcome. If Doreen checks guests in for us, we try to interact with...

The Potting Shed is a fantastic place to stay. The property itself is stunning, the grounds are well kept and the rooms are beautifully decorated. The location of The Potting Shed is a big positive being close to the centre of Hermanus. We were able to walk to the bars, restaurants and shops within ten minutes along the safe main...

A great experience in the constant battle for locals to find affordable rates and value for money at local hotels and guest houses.(Marine at R7000 a night...silly) David and Annemarie are friendly welcoming hosts and the staff are a pleasure.

Hi Keith, Thank you for your positive comments. Yes we like to think we offer good value for money. I think sometimes people don't realise that we are actually only a "3 Star establishment, However, we tick a lot of the boxes for a 4 Star grading. We really try to go the extra mile with our standards and hospitality....

Very comfy apartment with stunning views of the sea. Safe environment. Good wifi. Unfortunatley our mobile was out of order, so we felt a bit cut off, no phones in the room or on the complex. If you want peace & relaxation this is perfect location. You have to drive to the town for shops, restaurants & walks.

Rooms are really pretty and nice. Full Service very friendly and helpful. Breakfast very good. To the center 15 minutes walk (10 minutes at the beach). But: - Rooms are very small - No space to store the laggage (no racks) - King-size bed for us too small For a short stay okay, but not for a longer stay.

Thank you for taking the time to review us. I'm glad you enjoyed our service and breakfast. I think you may have been more suited to our Deluxe or Studio room where there is a lot more space. The closet is almost twice the size. The standard room which you booked is the cheapest room type and therefore not as...
