Rolf was the perfect host at this excellent Guest House. Not only did we have an great room to stay in and an excellent breakfast but it was easy to integrate with other guests and get on with everyone we met. Rolf also provided great information about the locality, places to visit and ideas for things we wanted to do.

Hermanus is a fun but pretty pricey town. Hortensia is one of many B&B's.

We stayed for two nights. The owner Rolf was really good, he advised us of the best places to visit. A lovely clean and bright bungalow with nice rooms. The breakfast was good and a welcome change from the usual 'English Breakfast' that most owners think we Brits want all the time. Thoroughly recommend.
