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

Immaculate apartment with upmarket amenities. The apartment was clean, well equipped and spacious. There is a street in front of the apartment and the first floor is on ground level but this never seemed to bother us. One word of advice. Please clean windows before new guests arrive. The windows were foggy and dirty. Milk and fruit juice was left...

Enjoyed our stay as we were warmly welcomed by Jim and Sue our hosts who daily interacted with all guests. They informed us of current events and recommended other less known sites. Certainly will go back there.

Our stay at the Bamboo was cut short because of illness, but during our time there we were able to enjoy the first class facilities and experience the 5 star care of the hosts, Jim and Sue. The standard of service offered is simply excellent.

Thank you Rosie for you wonderful review. I have now gone down with a good Summer Cold! So pleased you had left or you would probably have caught it from me! Do hope you are now fully recovered and that hospitalization was not necessary! Hoping to see you again before too long. Kind regards, Sue & Jim

We spent a wonderful time at the Bamboo Lodge in Hermanus and enjoyed the warm hospitality of Sue and Jim. Rooms, parking, garden and pool area, breakfast, service, atmosphere: everything perfect! Looking foreward to come back again.

We spent unfortunately just one night in the Bamboo Guest House. It was definitely the best accommodation in our trip in South Africa. Best service, breakfast & location. Very friendly and helpfully hosts, perfect place to chill and relax.

Most enjoyable two week stay at this wonderful apartment with spectacular views across Walker Bay. The apartment was clean, well equiped and spacious as per the web description, but the views from the balconies exceeded all expectations. Sue and Jimmy were most helpful, a mine of useful information but never intrusive. The ideal hosts! Would not hesitate to recommend as...

Bamboo Guest House was prefect for our needs. The house and room were extremely clean and well cared for, the breakfasts were plentiful and beautifully presented. We felt very much at home/ Sue and Jim really looked after us. they gave advice on and booked activities and a restaurant for us. Would certainly return here.

A very nice place to stay for a few days. It benefits from being in a slightly out of town location on the main through road but with no traffic noise. Our room was very comfortable with our own little patio area beside a lovely garden and pool area. The guest lounge and garden seating area were a very pleasant...
