    Lovely property only a short walk from the town center. The owner and staff were very friendly and could not be more welcoming. We were on a 1 month tour, and this was the warmest welcome of any of hotels we stayed at. We would happily recommend to other.

    The property was right across the street from the ocean. You could see the ocean from the bedroom, breakfast room. If there were whales there you would have been able to see them. Such a charming place. Breakfast was great. You can’t help but fall in love with the place.

    Coastal peace in busy Hermanus

    Very pleasant and helpful management team. Our room was spacious and well furnished with king size bed open view to the sea immediately across the road wirh access to the paved coast path. Wonderful choices for cooked breakfast. Secure parking at rear of property. More than one communal lounge areas and an honesty bar. Away from the bustle of the town centre but close enough to good restaurants. 4 star rating is justified.
