    The staff were friendly, extremely accommodating and helpful. Although on the main road it was within walking distance from everything. It was clean.

    The decor ( equipment and furniture eg bed and TV ) was very dated. Having come from Knysna where our accommodation was modern and half the price I expected more.

    Off street parking very good, breakfast very good for two of the quests, helpful staff, good location. Nice decor, relaxing atmosphere.

    No hand basin in the toilet room 2 although there is plenty of room for one, ( unhygenic) , had to walk to separate bathroom to wash hands.

    Everything great with good off street parking.The breakfast was great with wonderful setting overlooking the ocean.

    A bit of a walk into town where all restaurants and bars are. Would have preferred an ocean view room,had one right next to front door and reception desk looking out to back garden.Dont think they were booked out so would like to have been moved to a front room.

    We got a free upgrade to room 1 as the couple who had booked that room thought it would be noisy as on the road side of the property. In actual fact you do not hear any noise as almost no traffic on the road.

    A great find....We stayed here on the run up to and after our wedding in Hermanus. Hester and her team gave us a warm welcome and we realised immediately that she cared deeply about our stay and made each little detail as personal and as special as possible. This included providing flowers and champagne for the bride on the morning of the wedding. What more can you ask for ? A peaceful and relaxing stay, in a stylish and modern environment, we will never forget !

    Wi-fi connection/bandwidth could be improved and the door to honeymoon suite should be sound-proofed so the sound from dining guests at breakfast time doesn't travel.

    Excellent location. Very close to centre of Hermanus (10 minutes) and restaurants. Safe to walk back from town at night which was great as we could both have a drink. Sea walk lovely during the day. Hester and staff very helpful and shared information about the local area including restaurants and beaches. Room very comfortable and clean with good facilities. Breakfast well cooked and served in an attractive dining room. Good security with gates, we were given a remote key to operate these. We will be back to see the whales in the future.

    Nothing!
