Romantic is the best way to describe this place, even though it's a tiny little bit rickety. This furniture is quaint, the vibe quirky and the staff just so friendly. Fresh cut flowers everywhere. Quiet and serene. Feels a bit like my grandmother's beach cottage. Need I say it's not a place for party people?


Overall Hermanus is living on it's name and reputation. In my opinion it is overpriced so well worth a day trip from cape town to see the whales but staying in the town is over rated and really expensive. When people don't need to work hard to get tourists in the door service standards drop and i found that across the board with everybody except the lovely herman from walker bay adventures who runs the sea kayakes and other tours. Also the chap that runs fat bike tours was very helpful.
