Wonderful service
Fantastic hotel in the heart of the town centre. Incredible service, even picking us a takeaway breakfast box for our early flight. Room was a little small, but everything else was exceptional.

4/10 Fair

Disappointing from start to finish!
My husband and i were celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary whilst on this trip. The guest house was very modern but a building doesnt make your stay....... the welcome we received was abrupt and we were left to carry our bags in from the car park around the pool and up a flight of steps. I got the feeling that management must have some serious trust issues, we were asked to sign a disclaimer saying that if we didnt look after our own stuff and something was stolen, it was our own fault..... leading me to believe they couldnt trust their staff. Then when we went into the room, there was a sign that said as guests, we were only entitled to take the complimentary slippers and NOTHING else, what sort of guests have they had in the past? Thieves? Breakfast was a disaster. The man that took our order got both breakfasts mixed up. We got 2 different menus. I had requested gluten free bread and when i asked to confirm it was, the man just kept saying "no it free, no charge" all through breakfast. Both my boiled eggs and my husbands poached eggs were hard after having been asked what way we would like them. There was a girl hanging around the breakfast room, like a prison warden, i could not see her purpose because she was equally clueless as the man. There is no modern technology in the room. Its not 5*. The owner waited until we were checkin out to address our comments. We paid approx £147. for night and got compensated with a bar of soap...

Amazing hotel
We had a lovely stay -it started with being upgraded to the best room with the most stunning view of the ocean. Room very comfortable and we had a roaring fire in minutes.

2/10 Poor

Horrible stay
I got a special rate when I booked 5 months in advance. I approached the owner on arrival to ask if my husband that is doing the Cape Epic, can stay with me and my two boys in the room. He has a paid for camper van in The Epic rider village, but a room will be much more comfortable. He had to confirm with someone what the rate will be. I went to her an hour later, when she told me she was very upset with the rate I paid through the website and that there are people at the hotel that is paying a lot more than me!!!! What an insult, I have never felt so unwelcome. She also told me that our breakfast is not included, so I showed her my reservation and her response was that she will have to check it first. We also had to wait 40 min for our room. Dinner was served at R375 per head, I asked her if she has something for the kids, she said the steaks are cut the same thickness so the kids will have to pay the same price!!! I think she should remove her little board that kids are welcome. Will never go back to this place. View awesome, owners not.

6/10 Good

Quite beach hotel.
Eclectic courtyard focused architecture is the big selling point. And proximity to seaside cliff walk. The greeting staff were a bit officious on check in but improved during our stay - but all others very nice. Linda was not there when we stayed. The pool isn't particularly inviting except maybe for kids. Food lovely. Dinner can be had on special order. Rooms fabulous. Views great. Near Dutchies a seaside restaurant that is quite lively and friendly. A drive into Hermanus for dinner (you could walk in I suppose and taxi back out).
