Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 October 2014 via mobile

It was a verry nice stay in a beautiful lodge! The rooms are modern. And the staf is verry friendly and helpful.

The owner has given us some nice tips for wine tasting, good restaurants and to see some more whales.

Stayed: October 2014, travelled as a couple

We stayed at Aloe Guest House from 5-10 Oct 2014 in the family room. It was our 3rd visit at Aloe.
John and Lesley is very friendly and helpful as usual. The family room is very spacious and comfortable with kids. Full DSTV with PVR. We will be back!

We loved the Aloe guest house! We stayed there from 17 till 20 july 2014. Unfortunately, both the whale watching and a cage dive with white sharks were cancelled because of bad wheather. Thanks to alternatives provided by John our stay became a memorable one. We will never forget the mental (and Scotch!) support John gave us during the night of the difficult transport of our eldest son from Capetown to Hermanus. Thanks again John!

We spent 2 nights at the Aloe. The hotel is simple but comfortable and cozy. We were greeted warmly by the owners, Leslie and John. They were perfect. Helped us in everything we need. The breakfast is great and the Leslie's cookies are unmissable. Hermanus is a beautiful city with panoramic views of Walker Bay. We went to Hermanus for whale watching. And it was worth it. We can observe a lot of them from the beach and boat ride. Are there from June to November. Beautiful!

Dear Manoel, it was an honour to meet you and Sandra. I wish I could say I bake the biscuits, they are baked by Catherine in the kitchen. John and I hope that you will find Aloe House on facebook. We are happy to say that Sandra has and we wish you both well. We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future. Kind regards. Lesley.

Aloe Guest House was recommended by another B&B we had stayed in Knysna. What a great find! We had not made any reservations so we were looking for places to stay as we toured the coastline of Africa for 21 days in June 2013 (sorry for the late review). John and Leslie were absolutely charming and went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable. A wonderful and peaceful nights sleep! Rooms were very clean and have large bathrooms and showers. When John discovered we were looking for a wildlife park to stay a couple of nights, he began searching for us and found us one of the most amazing lodges to stay in Addo. I can't tell you how nice they were and how refreshing our stay was. Thank you so much. Highly recommended.
