We had a very pleasant stay, great spacious room, perfect wifi, breakfast was delicious. Staff and owners are very friendly and helpful. We can only recommend this B&B. Aren't there any minors? I can think of only one, a loud caged bird in the neighbors backyard that woke us up early.

We really enjoyed our one night stay here in a room right by the pool. It's outside of Hermanus itself which initially was a shock, but turned out to be no issue at all.

Dear guest, thank you very much for your review. Indeed our location is quite advantageous as it is a quiet and safe place in walking distance to Sandbaai Beach. There is also a Portuguese restaurant close to our place. During season Hermanus itself and the CBD are quite busy and noisy. Therefore it might be preferrable not to stay there....

Amakhosi guest house is located in an ideal location. Our stay was pleasant and our host very accommodating. Our room was very spacious so much so that the small TV appeared tiny 😀 Overall my wife and I had an enjoyable stay.

Very friendly staff, great breakfast. Location was less suited for us, tv could have been better. For some reason all shower heads in South Africa are fixed, this one was too -might be something to consider upgrading? Overall very good though.

In the description there is still writen that the rooms have one but this is not the case anymore. So we had to cool the drinks in the bathtub....

The guesthouse is very clean, spacious and quiet. The owners are extremely friendly. A slightly earlier breakfast time would be useful - but the breakfast is excellent and served on 'designer' crockery!

We recently spent two nights at Amakhosi Guesthouse. We had a thoroughly enjoyable time and will definitely stay there again when we visit Hermanus.
