We really enjoyed our stay in the Bamboo guest house, very homely and upmarket pool side accomodation. Sue and Jim were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Our room was a bit on the small side but it was very handy for the pool and lounge and sunbeds etc. We would definately stay there when next in Hermanus....

Very attentive hosts. Excellent breakfast and service. Within a short walking distance of golf course. Some noise from works ongoing in neighbouring property and pool is a lot smaller than in photographs.

The Bamboo Guest House has modern, pleasant rooms throughout and a lovely pool and lounge area. The hosts, Sue and Jim, are very friendly and helpful. Air conditioning in the rooms would be a worthwhile addition, but fans are provided. The breakfast offering was fairly standard, but had none of the special daily dishes; or home-made jams and breads, that...

The guest house is all decorated following the bamboo theme and it is new, well maintained ans spacious. We had a room with sea view. The room was very comfortable and clean and we felt very much "at home". The sea view is across the main street; first we were a bit worried about traffic noise but during the night...

Don't look anywhere else. Stay here. It's perfect! Walkable to town, a stones throw from the sea, great super clean rooms and one of the best breakfasts I've ever had in a B&B. The sausages in particular were amazing. Our second visit here and it won't be our last.

We thoroughly enjoyed four nights at Bamboo and would certainly recommend it. The whole accommodation was excellent and spotless and the staff most helpful. Breakfast was delicious and this is certainly one of the best guest houses we have stayed at in the Cape.

Try good location for trips out. The owner was very friendly and helpful responding quickly to any queries before and during our stay. We were very impressed and grateful for the chocolate and...

The guest house is just perfect but what makes it so special are the couple who run it - Sue & Jimmy. Apart from producing superb breakfasts, they do their best to help guests no matter what the problem including organising to pick up a swimming costume left behind by a guest at another location some distance away. Nothing is...

We booked off the internet and immediately on arrival we loved what we saw. Bamboo is beautifully put together in every way with such lovely attention to detail. The room was spacious and very comfortable and the thoughtful little coffee tray and sherry decanter so welcome ! Views of tranquil mountains from our room and the accessibility to the cliff...
