We stayed for 1 night in Hermanus at the Nautilus cottage. It's a nice and confortable place. The rooms are good, with good bedding and bathrooms. There's free wifi, but the coverage could be better. Upon arrival, we were told that it was very busy in Hermanus at this moment, and the staff had prebooked tables in 2 restaurants, offering...

Stayed for one night at Naulitus Cottage. The room itself was excellent, although it was situated off the main communal living room area and we were concious of hearing people outside our room often. The cottage has access to a swimming pool and sun loungers which were great. Breakfast was good but the hot selection let itself down due to...

Eight of us spent the weekend at Nautilus. Shane went out of his way to help us with our requests - fantastic service! Comfortable, modern rooms and very well appointed. No sea views, but it's a walk across the road to reach the sea and it's close to restaurants. Would definitely stay there again.

The lady at reception was really sweet, she helped us find a restaurant where we could have a vegitarian meal, she even called up the place to reserve for us. The bathroom was really big with a...

I booked online and was pleasantly surprised. We booked into room 1. The sea is visible through the window. Everything looked bigger and more posh than in the photos. The bathroom a real joy with even a heater fitted against the wall. Can recommend it.
