Booking and check-in were extremely professional and easy. We also received a welcoming drink of sparkling wine. The B&B has a great location, with just about every room having a great view of the ocean. The breakfast was outstanding and unique, something that attracts my wife and I to B&Bs over hotels. The staff were charming and extremely efficient. Our... More

belinda is among the most charming and nicest boutique hotel managers we ever met. but the five stars are also due to the superb oceanview which is outstanding for sunsets, the lovely and comfortable rooms and the overall flair of the building. we felt like being in our own oceanside villa. it is not directly in town but that was...

We only stayed one night at 138 and arrived late after a delay in Cape Town, We phoned ahead to warn 138 and they kindly rearranged our dinner booking and organised taxi transport to the restaurant. The accommodation and breakfast were superb and level of service and attention to detail by all staff members were of an extremely high standard... More

We were beautifully looked after and catered for here. Restaurants booked, directions provided, advice offered, hot water bottle in the bed when it was cold - the hosts could not have been kinder. Great breakfasts - and fantastic views of the pounding surf too. Note that you're about 3km out of town.

We stayed here for 4 nights in late September/early October. We were in the Oyster room, and the view was magnificent. There was a storm the first day, and we watched the waves crashing ashore from the comfort of our room. The owners and staff are marvelous. They arranged our bookings for dinner at a different restaurant in Hermanus each... More

We were at 138 for a couple of days on our South African trip and really enjoyed our stay. The guesthouse is delightful and we had a room with a wonderful sea view. The breakfasts were superb and teh hospitality was equally good. We strongly recommend this as a place to stay.

Immaculate property in a perfect setting just off the coastal path. We came for the whale watching and were helpfully given exact locations to spot them. The room and en suite were very clean and beautifully kitted out. Breakfast overlooking the ocean was delightful. Evening meals were helpfully booked for us locally if required.
