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.
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.
