Beautiful guest house, stylishly furnished throughout. Cecilia, the owner was a wonderful host, offering assistance and advice throughout our stay, and especially when my wife was ill on the last morning of our stay. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone considering a stay in Hermanus. Look no further than Hermanus Dorphuys.

The only bad point is they have no smoking corner. Why they don`t install a smoking point behind the house with a small table and a chair and a little bit protected from rain. Breakfast is fine as well the place of the guest house.

The dorpshuys is stylish and well equipped. The center of Hermanus is in walking distance (15 minutes), so you don't have to take the car in town. The owners of the guesthouse are very friendly. Short: even if you try, you will find nothing negative!

We enjoyed our stay at Hermanus Dorpshuys, lovely and big rooms and Cecilia goes out of her way to make you feel at home. I forgot two dresses and they were sent to Capetown, perfectly packed, so attentive!
