Let down by its cleanliness and the service
Very pretty guest house right on the beach in Sandbaai, approximately 7-10 minutes drive from the town center of Hermanus. The location is picture perfect! Our room was comfortable if a little on the small side - equipped with a fridge, coffee station, air conditioning and the usual amenities. The owner, Jena, was lovely and made us feel very welcome. This was sadly not our experience of the rest of the managerial and kitchen staff. Service at breakfast was dismissive and the “chef” bordered on being rude. Food was adequate although parts of the buffet offering had not been covered and had attracted flies. The standard of housekeeping was not good. I have a pet hate which is finding previous guests’ hair in the room. Unfortunately, there were several long hairs on the bath mats, on the hairdryer itself and on the shower tiles which I found most off-putting. In short, this was fine for a one night stay but it would require a huge improvement in its cleanliness and service standards for us to consider booking here again.

incredible views and exceptional service
An amazing place to stay. The views are incredible! It’s such a quaint place with incredible views of the sea. We had a relaxing stay. The hosts were incredibly welcoming and kindly made us dinner reservations in town the evening we arrived. Breakfast was exceptional and they even gave us recommendations for our drive to the next town and where to stop for lunch.
