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...

This was a return visit and the standards are still at 5 star level. You won't get nicer rooms better breakfast or a better welcome anywhere else. Perfect location for golf and everything else the town offers.

Lovely hosts and great breakfast. This bnb offers comfort and friendly press that will suit everyone from young to old. Super accommodating and the facilities where great. Short 40 min walk down the coast to one of the nicest beaches and 20 min walk into town for a meal. Great bathroom and all in all great stay!

This was our third stay with Sue and Jim at Bamboo and it seems to get better every time. You could not wish for nicer people to greet you when you arrive. During our stay Sue and Jim are around if you need any help or information but are never intrusive. The house is really lovely. Contemporary in design with...

We received excellent service from Sue and Jim. The room and facilities are exactly as promised in the pictures-which was wonderful. The guesthouse is close enough to the vibey part of town yet far enough to stay away from any noise. Spacious bedroom, lovely bathroom, beautiful balcony with sea views and complimenting interior decorating. We only stayed for one night...

Excellent stay at this lovely Guest House. Sue and Jim were the perfect hosts . Delicious breakfast with plenty of choice . We would recommend the Bamboo to anyone coming to the Hermanus area. Especially golfers as it is near the Hermanus golf course
