We had a siblings and spouse weekend away and booked all 5 rooms. We had an amazing weekend of fun and laughter. Peter and Aletta made our stay so much more memorable by going out of their way to ensure that the braai and the kitchen table layout was superb.

My husband and I were here in March 2015. An amazing experience. Beautiful and spacious rooms, lovely breakfast and friendly hosts. The guest house I've been to after Selkirk hasn't come close! Will definitely return to Hermanus for this gem.
