I spent a too short night at this lovely place high up against the mountain of Hermanus. My room was perfect - lovely king-size bed and bedding; bathroom big and modern; tv, the usual coffee/tea etc was there, as well as a microwave. It was a cold night but I was warm and cozy. I think my bed was brand-new,...

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
