Bamboo guest house was perfect for our short stay in Hermanus, owners Jim and Sue gave us a very warm welcome, provided an excellent service and cooked a delicious breakfast too. Spotlessly clean bedroom overlooking the beautiful garden, very comfortable bed and great shower, all you need, we welcomed the short 15-20 minute stroll into the centre of Hermanus, good... More

We spend only one night and so didn't have enough time to truly appreciate the bamboo but the hosts were very nice, breakfast was good and the room was a little small but clean and well decorated. big shower. a bit far from the main boardwalk.

There was a cold wind blowing for most of our trip to South Africa and not all the places we stayed at were warm, so we were therefore pleased to enjoy warmth and comfort of the Bamboo. Also conveniently placed for dining in Hermanus.

The Bamboo Guest House is special on many levels. It is wonderfully appointed, classy and clean. But what makes it worth visiting more than anything else are the hosts, Jim and Sue, who treat visitors like guests in their home.

Everything was wonderful, including the breakfast, pretty and comfortable room, and convenience for the drive to town. What stands out most, however, is the great service and care of the husband and wife proprietors. They were happy to help us in every way with questions and setting up reservations, and when we, two oldish ladies, went on the cliff walk... More
