Between booking a place (for five nights, in their best room, hence with a matching turnover) and actually staying there, a lot can happen. This used to be a vibrant place, with a colourful mixture of straight and gay guests and with the best of hospitality. Now the place is almost dead, no guest interactions, a rather dull, stereotypical crowd...

Good day, Tom, I consider your review as highly unfair. Please note that one of the owners is not anymore with the company. That one you knew during your last stay. I was abroad for a couple of days when you were staying at our place. As last time when I was in Europe, while you were staying in my...

We were very warmly received on arrival, lovely room and a delicious breakfast. They did everything to make us feel well and we got lots of good tips. Nice neighborhood near the beach. We had a perfect time in the Amakhosi Guesthouse!

Finding the hotel was not easy - there are buds trial areas nearby and then suddenly you are in a residential area a couple of miles out of the town centre. Having said that we received a warm welcome, lovely garden and plunge pool for sunbathing, excellent breakfast, very helpful reception staff, lovely room and bathroom.

Dear Charles, thank you very much for the good review. Yes, it is a bit less than a 10 min drive from us to town center, but on the other side we are very close to Sandbaai beach. It is in walking distance. I am suprised that you could not find the place easily. Each guest receives a confirmation mail...

Our room was so comfortable and spotless and the staff were really kind and helpful .The breakfast was a bit boring--need a bit more variety if you are staying for 5 nights, but other than that, no complaints. Lovely quiet spot, close enough to Hermanus but away from the hub.

Very nice rooms with bacony in a safe part of the city. Only the TV is very small. The location is outside Hermanus, so you need a car. The breakfast is excellent. The hotel has a garden where you can relax

I stayed there for one night with my girlfriend and we could not fault it. Marc welcomed us, offered to help with our luggage and immediately made us feel at home.
