did not get ocean view as we booked. room was small. bathroom and toilets are far apart
The room & bathroom were very good, well furnished & comfortable
The breakfast was unfortunately not buffet style which is more to our liking.
Great breakfast looking at whales in the distance! Nice and clean room. Safe parking.
The view, the establishment.
The heating (it was winter), the non-buffet breakfast.
Nicely appointed, comfortable rooms. Friendly service. Good location for cliff top walks and a short walk to the centre of the village.
very nice view of the ocean from the terrace, excellent breakfast, nice room
nothing in particular
Close to Whale watching hot spots. Great breakfast.
Absolutely loved the whole experience! the room was so beautiful and very comfortable! The service was fantastic and above all a home away from home! i highly recommend this guest house!
I enjoyed my stay, the room was clean and modern with ocean views. We enjoyed a good and Hester, our host made us feel at home.
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.
ligt aan de weg en niet aan zee
A modern and stylish guesthouse with very friendly staff.
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.
Fantastic room, friendly and very helpful staff, would highly recommend!
very friendly host
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.
A very,very nice guesthouse- it was defently too Shirt! Very friendy and delicious breakfast and the first Night in Southafrica was a Great begin! Trank you!
We had wonderful days on Whale away. The staff was very helpful and nice. It was a close walk to all resturants.
To nerrow place by the pool.
A home from home... with a fabulous welcome for all.
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.
Walking distance from beach, restaurants and cliff path.
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.
The nearby beach within very close walking distance enabling us to view a beautiful sunrise in the early morning hours and the tranquillity that goes with it.
friendly reception and excellent breakfast to order.
