Had the great pleasure of staying at the Aloe guest house. Superb room for our family and fantastic hospitality from John,Leslie and staff. Nothing seemed to be any trouble. The house is so central that all you have to do is get there and then let Hermanus and its magic take its effect. #relaxed

Me and my husband stayed at Aloe for a quick break after holidays with the kids. First time ever we were welcomed at the front door by owners of a guesthouse. Thank you John and Lesley for your hospitality. The room was clean and well equiped even with homemade biscuits! We really enjoyed every moment of our stay.
