My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon travelling along the garden route. The house is gorgeous and very grand. There's a terrace to sit out on and the views are amazing. We were lucky that it wasn't busy when we stayed (end of August) so our room got upgraded to a front room which had a sea view.
The couple who run the guest house are very friendly. The man (sorry can't remember his name) was very chatty and gave us some advice on where to go in Hermanus.
The only downside we experienced was that our room was freezing. The temperature wasn't hot anyway due to the time of year and the room had minimal heating. It was front facing so had the full force of the sea breeze and it was quite windy when we stayed. There was a little heater in the bathroom and a small electric heater in the bedroom but they didn't help much. We ended up sat in bed to keep warm.
The house is spotlessly clean and the breakfast was lovely. The staff were very friendly. The bed in our room was very comfortable. There's also an honesty bar to use in the communal area. It's very close to the beach which also has a lovely restaurant called Dutchies which we ate at. I would definitely recommend that.
