Everything was great from the booking, the owners, the room to the breakfast. You won't be disappointed after a long day of whale watching, resting your head at "The Potting Shed". Located just a short walk from the main strip in town, you'll be close to everything in Hermanus.

We only spent a couple of nights here but would recommend it, the food was good, the room was clean and pleasant, the location was good (five mins walk to the centre of the town) and the owners were friendly and informative. Small things like the great home cooked bread, the whale biscuits and sweets in the room showed a...

Great place to stop over in Hermanus. We stayed in the upstairs self contained suite and really recommend it. Breakfast was excellent. The place is a little bit out of town - but the 10-15 minute walk along the scenic coastal path into the town centre is well worth it.

Very nice stay over. Spacious room with all the extras - except I couldn't find the plug - good parking facilities, really nothing to complain about. Friendly people keen to point out restaurants worth visiting. Very nice breakfast. Punctual.

Thank you for your review. Glad you liked the room & breakfast. (The plugs are kept in the main drawer under the dressing table). We also have a supply in the kitchen as guests often take them with them from the bedrooms - it's something we seem to constantly replace - so apologies if there wasn't one in your room....

We stayed for 3 nights recently on a visit to Hermanus to see the whales. What an absolute gem of a place, beautifully laid out & very tastefully decorated with wonderful attention to small details which we really enjoyed. The room was very comfortable and had every convenience we could want, again beautifully decorated. Annemarie & Dave are very welcoming,...

We arrived to early to check in, but the host quit the work he was doing and received us very gentle. We received the keys and a map to go into town. Rooms are small but adequate, very clean and orderly. Breakfast was lovely and tasteful.

Save & Annamarie were great hosts. Tasty breakfast with freshly squeezed orange juice a winner. Also helpful advice on local attractions and places to dine. We stayed in the studio loft and found it intimate and cosy.

The studio room is my favourite - spacious yet "cosy" as you say. I love the open deck with the mountain view at night time or fist thing in the morning when the sun comes up - so peaceful!

We visited the Potting Shed in the African winter. So it was a bid cold, but the reception was very warm. We had a stroll along the cliff pad which was impressive. Unfortunately we did not spot any whales at the time. We had a nice dinner at the Fishermans Cottage. Next morning we were treated with an excellent breakfast.
