Excellent Stay with Wonderful Hosts
Would highly recommend the Penguino. The hosts, Stefan and his wife Nikki are wonderful and really go out of their way to make your stay easy and comfortable. They can help you with any local tours or places to eat out. The breakfast was outstanding and the room amazing. Would definitely book again!

Perfect place to stay in Hermanus
We had a wonderful experience at Penguino Guest House. Stefan and Nikki were very welcoming and Stefan had lots of great local suggestions. The breakfast was fantastic. The guest house is just steps away from the Hermanus cliff path and great whale-watching. This is the place to stay in Hermanus!

A very comfortable 3 days last weekend. extremely welcoming hosts. The rooms are super clean. The "made to order " special that my daughter wanted is just an indication of the small touches that go a long way. Will definitively be back

10/10 Exceptional

The welcome from owners Ottie and Nikki was warm and full of offers to help and advise in any way. During our ten day stay, mainly to meet family nearby and deal with some issues following an untimely bereavement, our hosts were always kind and made us feel fully at home when we were at Penguino. Their staff were also warm and very efficient. And their dogs were lovely too!! Penguino is just off the amazing Hermanus cliff walk and is in easy walking distance of the town's plentiful shops and restaurants. It is a good base for both the town and the surrounding coast, beaches and nearby wine area.
