The host Carol was amazing! The rooms were large and really cosy. Breakfast was wonderful. Robins Rest was just about 5 mins away from the main town centre. It felt like a home away from home! I would definitely go back to Robins Rest if i were to visit Hermanus again.

The accommodation was excellent. Nicely situated and within walking distance to the beach. I will gladly go back to this B&B. Thank you Carol for your kind hospitality. The room are so spacious and the bathroom with a bath and shower was just excellent. I will gladly recommend to my friends and family.

I truly enjoyed my time at Robin's Rest B&B. I felt at home as soon as I walked through the door. The B&B is centrally located, so I could walk to town, the see, wherever. It's like living in the lap of luxury, but still maintaining that simple beach house atmosphere. I left feeling rested. Definately recommend it to others

The facilities, decor, location and hospitality at Robin's Rest made it worth every cent. Although we were there in July, we will definitely be back in the summer to test the pool - it looks neat and so inviting! Thanks again for the warm friendliness and hearty breakfast!

The location of Robin's Rest on the main road within easy reach of shops, yet private and secluded inside, makes this an ideal place to sleep over. The rooms are very comfortable and tastefully decorated and fixtures are trendy yet practical. The pool area is inviting and flows easily into the dining area. The feel is one of roominess, yet...

“The larger rooms are deeper in and further away from the dining room, therefore somewhat quieter.”
