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.
Nice Location, very good breakfast, very comfortable and clean room
Location view very friendly owner staff breakfast everything!
stay too short
We had a fabulous stay with Mandy at her team. Lovely breakfast, very clean and comfortable room with a greay view. Highly recommended - thank you Mandy.
The location was good, the room was modern and clean. We would stay there again
very noisy and unfriendly staff
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.
did not get ocean view as we booked. room was small. bathroom and toilets are far apart
As a South African we would appreciate a full DSTV channels especially on Saturday with sport.
The room & bathroom were very good, well furnished & comfortable
The breakfast was unfortunately not buffet style which is more to our liking.
nice place, in close walking distance to the coast based whale watching areas.
the town hermanus itself is a bit dangerous - be aware of too friendly people!
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.
