The Potting Shed Accommodation
Ranked #11 of 88 Hermanus B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 December 2015

Very clean & modern, spacious room, really good breakfast, reasonable distance to main part of town if you want to walk, parking right in front of room (handy if you have lots of luggage), small but adequate pool. I'd definitely recommend a stay here.

Fantastic small B&B in this beatiful place. Annamarie is a great host who makes you feel welcome in no time. Lovely breakfast and suburb room with everything available inside. Fresh colours and everything nicely decorated. Great time we have had. Thanks !!

This lovely B&B has obviously been recently renovated with delightful rooms and lovely artwork on the walls. We had a warm welcome on arrival and iced tea, which was a great way to cool down. Breakfast was good with delicious egg muffins.

Thank you Sheena for your review. Yes a friend of ours from Cape Town has hand painted the walls. Every room has a different indigenous flower on it to give a uniqueness. Annamarie

Everything at the Potting Shed shows loving attention to detail, from the decor to the home-made bread and iced tea.

Our room (4) was slightly larger than the standard, and had plenty of space for two plus luggage. The bed was enormous, and the room also has a nice private patio with braai equipment. Mod cons like WiFi and DSTV make nice extras.

We felt very looked after for all three nights of our stay, and also before we even arrived, as David and Annamarie were in contact with us by email, and helped us to make bookings, with great discounts, for some great activities - quad biking and shark diving!

The only minor issue we noticed was that parking could be quite tight!

The Potting Shed would be hard to match anywhere!

What a lovely review - thank you Grace! The ice-tea is something new we've introduced - picked up the idea when we did a road trip of South Africa this year. Seems to be quite a hit. Hope you will be able to come back again soon. Best wishes for the coming festive season. - Annamarie & Dave

Lovely fresh and clean self catering apartment! Secure location and free WiFi lovely views of the ocean and great to hear the sound of the ocean when you wake up every morning! Would be ideal for a family as it is a quiet secure location and the pool is not easily accessible to little children! Highly recommended

Thank you Helen for your comments. The apartments (which are 3kms form our guest house) are great for families. Every time I go there I'm in awe of the smell & sound of the roaring sea. Dave and I keep promising our selves a night there - must be fantastic to awake to the crashing of the ocean.
