Honeymoon stay

We spent two nights here on our honeymoon and it was perfect! Stunning views of the mountains and the sea, we didn’t Spot any whales as it was the wrong time of year but if there had been any it would be the perfect location! The room was beautiful we loved the shutters that pulled all the way across and the gorgeous bathroom! Breakfast was gorgeous and there was plenty to do, lovely pool with a view, pool table, lovely little library! Highly recommend!

Lovely quiet haven

Colchester, United Kingdom

We were booked here by Trailfinders. Whilst en route I emailed the owner asking if they had a dinner option. The response was quick, but no. However she said we'd be upgraded to the suite and a booking had been made at a local restaurant for us. Not a bad start I thought. We were met by the owner and shown round. Lovely large room, comfy big bed, with sitting area that opens out onto the sun/pool area (not private but hey we had curtains.). The bathroom was wet room style with large shower and bath. Everything was clean and well laid out. There is an upstairs lounge thats great to sit and read and watch the sea. The breakfast area also has a full size billiard table and lounge chairs (getting how big the space is yet?). Breakfast was multi course, set with fewer options than normal but you had a quality selection served. There is a semi resident cat and the owner lives next door with her two collies. The reception has a phone with three speed dials (manager, taxi, and staff) which works well. The taxi was on time and cheap. The booked restaurant, Burgundy's, was OK, not more but I accept it is difficult to book on behalf of people not knowing them and their taste. There are other choices in Hermanus itself. Not least Bientangs Cave. We walked down to the beach (theres also a cliff walk which is nice and not difficult to some lovely coves). Its downhill all the way and takes about 10=15 minutes. To reward you there is a beach bar and a lovely restaurant called Dutchies. Not pretentious or upmarket, just great food and service.
