    Let down by its cleanliness and the service

    Very pretty guest house right on the beach in Sandbaai, approximately 7-10 minutes drive from the town center of Hermanus. The location is picture perfect! Our room was comfortable if a little on the small side - equipped with a fridge, coffee station, air conditioning and the usual amenities. The owner, Jena, was lovely and made us feel very welcome. This was sadly not our experience of the rest of the managerial and kitchen staff. Service at breakfast was dismissive and the “chef” bordered on being rude. Food was adequate although parts of the buffet offering had not been covered and had attracted flies. The standard of housekeeping was not good. I have a pet hate which is finding previous guests’ hair in the room. Unfortunately, there were several long hairs on the bath mats, on the hairdryer itself and on the shower tiles which I found most off-putting. In short, this was fine for a one night stay but it would require a huge improvement in its cleanliness and service standards for us to consider booking here again.

    incredible views and exceptional service

    An amazing place to stay. The views are incredible! It’s such a quaint place with incredible views of the sea. We had a relaxing stay. The hosts were incredibly welcoming and kindly made us dinner reservations in town the evening we arrived. Breakfast was exceptional and they even gave us recommendations for our drive to the next town and where to stop for lunch.

    Beautifully presented accommodation in a lovely location. Attentive staff. Though a B&B it has the feel of a quality hotel with nice touches.

    A small bed and breakfast overlooking the coast of Hermanus. The hosts have been very helpful, and the property is excellent. The walk along the ocean is priceless!

    Brilliant place to stay, even with a four year old and a two year old. Initial thoughts on arrival included nervousness about how our children might damage the property in some way as it is so pristine and doesn't immediately feel child friendly. In reality the owners went out of their way to make our kids feel welcome, including Disney crockery. Belinda was really helpful re scenic routes to drive and restaurants to visit. Would recommend staying here to friends definitely.

    This guesthouse goes the ‘extra mile’ with thoughtful extras like a glass of fizz on arrival, tea, coffee & fresh milk in the lounge. Suggestions for restaurants, booking them & calling taxis. Lovelbreakfast
