We stayed there during our garden route trip for 2 nights in the big suite located at the first floor. It was a lovely stay with a gigantic view on the cliffs of hermanus. We had a big balcony and an own lounge with a nice sofa and 2 seats facing the fantastic view. Breakfast was awesome you could choose between 4 different meals. So lovely staff and kind people. They arranged everything also reservations for dinner. We will definitely come back. Thank you.

This is a delightful guest house. It overlooks the ocean and is just across the street from the cliff walk and benches where you can watch the dolphins and whales. The breakfast was delicious. There is a menu, but they offered to make us anything we wanted and as much as we wanted. There was lots of butter on the table. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The owners live on the property and are very hospitable. This isnt the type of place where you are handed a key at the front desk and told to enjoy your stay; we were shown to our rooms, served coffee, and given a tour of the entire property. The attention really made us feel welcome and at home.

Das Guest House liegt etwas auerhalb nur durch eine Strasse getrennt direkt an den Klippen. Durch den Gartenausgang erreicht man auf der anderen Strassenseite direkt den schnen Fussweg entlang der Klippen.Die Zimmer sind angenehm gross, der Service ausgesprochen freundlich und das Frhstck sehr gut. Im Innenhof knnte man einen Poolbereich nutzen.
