A beautiful location, our room - top floor facing mountain, was lovely. Mandy was so friendly & warm hearted, helping us reserve a restaurant booking and looking after us so well, nothing was too much trouble for her. We look forward to spending more time here!

Large and clean, also well equiped, friendly host Mandy. The place needs some tlc, paint etc. You dont get any sun on the balcony in May and so very cold. There was also heaps of mosquitos inside and worse on the deck.

Dear John Thank you for taking the time to write a review, we appreciate the effort. I am so sorry it rained and you had a terrible weekend due to that. You are absolutely right when you say in May it is very cold but in all fairness it is winter in South Africa and the sun does come out...

Selfcatering unit with extra room worked really well for a family of 4. The location is perfect for quiet time, as well as close to town and the local beaches. The service was excellent and owners went out of their way to make sure we have an enjoyable time.

This B&B was clearly in the center of town and easy access to all the town has to offer. We were fortunate to be there during local fundraising festival. However, the room at 78on5th was tiny as a tent, with barely enough room to open our luggage. A noisy environment and caters to a young and noisy crowd.

Dear Teresa I think you have us confused with another hotel. We are definitely NOT in the centre of town and we DEFINITELY don't cater for the young and noisy. We are situated in a quiet suburb and our claim to fame is the peace and quiet of the nature around us. Ocean in front, mountain directly behind and walking...

On first impressions on arrival was good and was welcomed by the owner and check-in was great and information received about the area was a nice touch. We were taken to our room with a mountain view with a little "stoep" that was semi private. Room was nice and clean. The room was well appointed and over all meeting expectations....

I was a little worried when I realized that 78on5th was further from the center of Hermanus than I had anticipated (my fault) but the B&B won me over with great service, a very nice room, and an extremely welcoming attitude. Our room in the back of the guesthouse was very quiet and had a lovely little patio with a...

The tv was connected with another room. They were changing the channel while we watch. The sound change also. Room is way over priced. No mirror to do my hair only small one in bathroom. Breakfast was awesome.

Dear Rolanda I am so sorry you didn't enjoy your stay with us. All our rooms have their own dedicated DSTV decoders, I'm sure it must have been something small on the remote. We checked it out and its working fine. It's such a pity you didn't ask the manager on duty to help you with the TV, that is...

Just a short stop in Hermanus. Nice room, great service and very jummy breakfast. Next time we will stay longer, as the beach is not far from the B&B and it is very quiet in the night. To the city center you need to go by car.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Because 78on5th is owner run it is your home away from home. Situated at the foot of the Musselberg Mountains bordering the Fernkloof Nature Reserve we are walking distance from the world famous Grotto beach with its Blue flag status. This makes us the ideal holiday or overnight destination - especially when visiting during Whale season.Enjoy a luxurious sleep while the mountains echo the calming sounds of the sea before you wake up to a delicious breakfast with a difference. ... more   less
