Outstanding friendly reception, excellent accommodation decorated with many little things which gave us feeling as "being at home". Before we had a "horrible" good breakfast we even saw the whales relaxing in the Walkers Bay....

We visited FrancolinHof just 1 night, but it was enough to know that Francolinhof is an excellent B&B : comfortable, nice view, and friendly owners.

We spent 2 nights here at the end of a Garden Route drive. I liked everything about this place. The location is scenic and quiet, being at the border of a protected nature area. The owners are personable, helpful and accommodating. When we came back later on on the first night some port and chocolates were waiting for us to...

The whale watching was a bonus. It...

I have visited Hermanus many times and tried different places but Francolinhof is the place to stay. The location, the views, the rooms and the hosts are all above your expectations. This is a very special place and when i return to Hermanus (hopefully soon) I would be disappointed if I cannot get a room here. This is a place...
