Although it was not fully booked, we were assigned the nearest room to the road, with traffic noise and besides with no sea view. The wall between the next room is so thin that we could hear TV and other noises coming from the other guests. To get to the breakfast room we had to go outside (the weather was...

We stayed two nights in September and found everything to be very good. Our room was modern and was overlooking the ocean which was lovely. The staff did provide menus for local restaurants and some input as to what restaurants guests often dined at. Weeks before our visit to Hermanus, some staff member did email me in response to my...

A beautiful guest house overlooking the ocean. Rooms were immaculate and both they and the rest of the ldge were super comortable. A delicious breakfast on the patio watching the waves breaking. It's a 40 minutes walk from the centre of Hermanus but it's a lovely walk along the coast path watching the whales and tripping over the dassies!
