Friendly landlady who was most helpful when I needed tape and a birthday candle. The place was very clean and adequate. The breakfast room, lounge and balcony was very inviting to sit and enjoy the weather and the view.
We were a little taken back that as we walked in the front door I was asked to sit down immediately & fill out forms and settle the bill, did not feel very welcome. The swimming pool was uninviting with two rusty chairs.
Mandy is a very nice host, she was very helpful during our stay with recommondations and dinner bookings
Private garden room. Lovely king bed. Across from the cliff path to town.Use of common areas with lovely sea views. Refreshing pool for hot days.
The hotel is perfectly situated close to the beach and restaurants.The whole hotel is furnished in a tasteful modern style. Our room was facing the garden with our own entrance. The beds were comfortable, the breakfast was good and the service fine.
The window shades were a bit dusty. The shower was only separated from the bedroom by a folding wall.
Location was excellent, 5 minutes walk to town centre and restaurants along wonderful coastal path.
Owner very keen to take money, before we had even seen the room and spoke to guests like they where children.
Too few TV Channels
Quality of room , location
the rooms are nice and the people are friendly and helpfull,
the location of the B&B is not central or close to the beach
A guesthouse with very nice and personal service. We got fantastic service and support before and during our stay. Just a short walk to Hermanus is a + for dining out in the evenings. It's also fantastic located for golf at Hermanus GC. We got help and support with golf Bookings both at Hermanus and Arabella. Fantastic breakfast!
A small minus is the quite small area for sunbathing and pool area.
Great beds, great breakfast, perfect location (10mins along the cliff path to town)
Reception area in the middle of the building, so any noise can carry into rooms very easily.
Very warm reception, excellent service from all staff. A very modern and comfortable Annan. We enjoyed the stay.
Please look at the bathroom ventilation
super comfortable bed- I even asked for the model and bought one! Manager went out of her way to find the model of the bed- excellent service! great location- beautiful short walk to town.
Everything was great. Mandy was a wonderful hostess and her guesthouse is so nice. We will come back again.
Nothing, everything was perfect!
Our room was beautiful. Mandy the hostess was great, very friendly & helpful. The guest house is a very short walk (about 5 mins) out of the main town but it was perfectly safe to walk in & out. A beautiful coastal broad walk just opposite. And ofcourse a fantastic breakfast! Would return
Pool was very small but it didn't affect us for the nights stay!
Lovely guest house Excellent location - over the road from coastal path for whale viewing and a nice 10 minute walk to the town centre Friendly and informative staff Cooked to order breakfast Value for money Well decorated and presented
Location and room we stayed in was amazing. Mandy the manager was extremely friendly and very helpful.
Nothing , the wifi wasn't working despite Mandy's best efforts the the internet provider. I can not fault this place. Wish I was staying longer.

Great Guest House with lots of personal attention from Mandy. Saw many Whales in Hermanus Bay. Great Location very convenient to everything you will Need while there; boardwalk, dining atm, gas, good security, too.
Easy to find, parking, secure, could walk into Hermanus 10 mins. Friendly staff, clean, well maintained and nice breakfast.
This property is nicely positioned for joining the coastal walk and is a short walk into Hermanus itself.
The 10am check out time is a little early.
