    This place was perfect as it was residential but only a two minute walk to the old harbour. The apartment had everything you need. The wifi was excellent. The hosts were very pleasant. Breakfast was optional and loved that the kitchen had a full stove.More

    As far as I am aware the open top red bus operates in the Cape Town area doing tours of the City and surrounds. Hermanus is well worth a visit on its own merits and very easy to navigate. Day tours are readily available
