Score from 194 reviews Exceptional
The staff was wonderful along with the beautiful view. Best of all the very charming couple that owns it, Charmaine and Hylton. We will return for sure !!
Everything was fabulous...a 10.
Room, location, quiet, convenient for both the new harbour and the town, car parking, wine in the bar
No fridge in the room. Some problems with Wi-Fi.
Would have appreciated a small fridge for ice and some refreshments
Sympathy from the person who received us.
Road noise... That stands between the guest house and the actual cliff... No one on site (at least at sight) from 5:30pm.
Fantastic guesthouse. The room was most luxurious with a good size balcony giving fantastic whale watching views out to sea. We were greeted by Charmaine as we got out of our car and the warm welcome continued for the rest of our short stay. Great cooked breakfast in the morning and we were sorry to leave.
Great position overlooking the sea with lovely walks along the cliffs. The owners more than helpful for anything you need.
Lovely clean rooms, sea view, owner very friendly
Rooms not adjoining
Friendly, service minded. Had a wonderful "whale" book for sale.
Within walking distance to the center. The owners were very friendly and very helpful. Ample private parking on the premises.
Excellent room with stunning views. In fact we saw some whales from our room. Friendly staff, good breakfast and very clean. The coastal path was just across the road and you could walk into town or the harbour in about 15 minutes.
It would be hard to criticise anything except maybe the road outside is busy and could be noisy. But that wasn't an issue.
OWNERS CHARMAINE AND HYLTON RUN A SUPERB GUESTHOUSE
We just so enjoy the view, the convenience and proximity to the town, just not enough time to walk along the cliffs.
Everything was just great
Position and view. Relaxed atmosphere, warm welcome.
Great position with wonderful view. Lovely room. Very friendly and helpful hosts. Couldn't have been better.
Room standard. Excellent!! Atmosphere fantastic. Great breakfast. Sea view. Comfort. Lovely surroundings. Very nice service from host family.
The view, the honesty bar and the room size.
The location a bit far to walk to the town center for senior citizens.
One can walk along the cliffs and down to the beach with a wonderfully rocky coastline. At the same time, it is easy (and safe) to walk to downtown Hermanus where there is a wealth of attractions and restaurants.
Unfortunately we were there at the wrong time of the year and saw no whales!!
The guest house was lovely and we had a wonderful time!! Rooms were comfortable and clean. It is in a beautiful postion within walking distance to everything! Would highly recommend it for anyone! The owners were very accomodating!
Relaxed place, large comfortable room with great views straight on to the ocean. Owners were very interesting and informative about holidaying in South Africa. Would definitely return here.
Breakfast room was a bit lacking in ambience. Could perhaps have tables in the courtyard to give more space. Set menu but were happy to go beyond it if asked, e.g very good pancakes.
Loved Charmaine and Hylton - just down to earth lovely hosts.
Warm welcome. Comfortable suite. Good breakfast
Excellent breakfast. Friendly hosts. Glad there was an honest bar policy as there are no pubs/restaurants within easy walking distance. Plenty of restaurants a short drive away.
Nice people, nice room with a great view, easy to get to Town.
Traffic noise was a bit disturbing.
Thank you very much for a woderful stay..we were only there ine night but Hilton made us feel very welcome; will recommend and stay here again
