We stayed at Villa Exner for the night after enjoying a days ziplining with Cape Canopy Tours. The Guest House is incredibly peaceful, with beautiful gardens and a relaxing pool and deck area. We really enjoyed the peace and quiet of this place. The rooms are fantastic and well equipped. The beds are by far the most comfortable we have...

We enjoyed our stay very much. It was beautifully decorated, the food was excellent and the service was the best we had in South Africa. Gabriel was a really professional waiter, both at dinner and breakfast. We can thoroughly recommend this boutique hotel and our only regret was we were only booked in for one night.

perfect place for a trip to the wine region. Hermanus and Summer West being nearby is another advantage. We played Golf at Hermanus and Arabella Golf Resort. We recommend both golf courses. High quality hotel, very friendly staff.
