The room had a balcony, bar fridge and en-suite bathroom with shower and bath, comfortable and very clean. The linen was fresh and the bed / pillows were excellent. The staff were friendly and Theresa was warm and welcoming. Our breakfast was fantastic and the omelettes were made to perfection. We would definitely recommend this guest house.

Thanks so much for your lovely comments. I will pass on you remarks to Teressa; we are very happy for her to look after our establishment in our occasional absences. Do hope we will see you again on your next visit to Hermanus. Kind regards Sue & Jimmy English

We stayed two nights and were treated like kings! Our hosts made us feel at home and provided a wonderful guest experience. Highly recommend this gem! Sue and her beau were lovely, the grounds immaculate and the rooms clean and comfortable.

Friendly and warm people. Clean and crisp accommodation with beautiful bamboo furnishings. I enjoyed my stay here and would suggest it for all who visit Hermanus. The owners also know where you can go for supper, sightseeing etc. The rooms are kept clean and tidy.

Clean comfortable rooms, breakfast decent, hosts attentive, bit of a walk from the centre. The reason why I didn't give 5* is, we found it very noisy. there's a lot of tiling, so there's nothing to "absorb" everyday noises
