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.
Not enough attention it said 5mins to beach which beach
Beautiful rooms, super-friendly staff and amazing breakfast!
Friendly management with comfortable rooms and refreshing pool. Easy scenic walk to town centre and shopping.
On the main road.
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.
Breakfast was very good and staff very good nothing too much trouble
The location is a little bit out of the town certainly 15 minutes walk
