My wife and I plus 2 overseas guests recently spent 2 nights at this establishment which lies about 5kms outside of Hermanus. We were warmly welcomed by Jan and Pauli and assisted to our rooms by both of them. Being disabled I welcomed the in built lift which takes one to the 1st floor room which is spacious with a...

This guesthouse has wonderful views of the mountains and the sea. Situated in an old house it is quite charming, but also a bit run down and in need of maintenance ( plumbing in particular), to deserve its 4 stars. Internet access is erratic on the first floor, and TV channels are restricted by the use of TV in the...

Large guesthouse that is still being developed. Loads of bedrooms & bathrooms. Small kitchen. Dirty pool. In the suburbs so a fair distance from the beach and the town. Was not serviced so I am not sure if that is an option. Good braai facilities.

Good day, we are very sure that this review does not relate to our business, On The Vermont Guest House. We only have five bedrooms, not A LOT OF ROOMS as the lady explains. Also, our guest house has been around since 2002 and is not "still being developed". She mentions a "small kitchen" - we have two, fully equipped...

We enjoyed our stay immensely, the rooms were cosy and the food was heavenly! Pauli and Jan were gracious hosts even after our booking agent didn't relay to them that we would be bringing our baby along. We would gladly stay there again - Ronna & Kelvin

Had a amazing stay. Always ready to help or assist. They are truly fully equiped to accommodate persons that is in a wheelchair. With a beautiful view. There are a lift to help persons in a wheelchair to the first floor. The bathroom is also fully equiped to the needs of a person in a wheelchair. Thank you

Our hosts were lovely and very welcoming. The guesthouse is in a residential area outside of Hermanus and not close to any attractions or activities and is not catered towards young families at all. Breakfast could be better, no fresh fruit.

Good Rooms, catering for the disabled, Good Breakfast and wonderful interesting couple. Out from the hustle and bustle of town yet still close enough. Nice walk down to the beach and along the pathway following the waters edge. Thank you for your kind hospitality. Roger & Liz

Am so grateful for the hospitable Pauli and Jan who made our stay in Hermanus so homely - they have a lovely home, are super friendly, and made us a big homely breakfast! Lots of local expertise too. It was a little difficult to find but Pauli gave good directions.

We stayed at On the Vermont for two nights arriving the 24th and departing the 26th of September 2014. We were warmly welcomed by Pauli who explained everything and showed us around. The guest house has a European feel to it which is great as we have never been overseas but it felt like we were in Italy :-) The...

We stayed here in September this year (2013) and could not have been better looked after, super room with lovely views, convenient for Hermanus and surroundings and away from the buzz (it was the whale festival!) Highly recommended.
