Great place to stay. Right next to town, 5 mins walk to restaurants and bars. One minute walk to the cliffs and coastal walk. Very clean and friendly. Stefan and Nikki's knowledge of both the local area and province is second to none. Will certainly be staying again, as do many of their guests.

The penguino is a fantastically comfortable guesthouse which made us feel right at home from the start. The room was extremely comfortable with a delightfully relaxing bed and plenty of space.

The location was exceptional. A 10 minute walk into the town centre where there are some great restaurants, and within a minutes walk down to the cliff walk. Within 90 seconds of leaving the guesthouse we found a huge southern right whale and calf.

Most impressive though was the hospitality of the owners. Both Stephan and Nikki were exceptionally welcoming, provided us with a superb breakfast, great tips, and were a joy to talk to.

Had a very pleasant stay. The room was spacious with everything that we needed. Hosts were great and we were positively surprised about the great breakfast that was prepared to our wishes. Location is very convenient for the coastal path, for whale watching and it is only 15 min on foot to the city center. We had a good night's sleep, because it is a quiet (and safe) area.
