Host very welcoming, Rooms very nice, shower, heater was good Games room could do with a bit of an investment pool table ripped and ping pong balls broken, Internet would only connect in certain areas, breakfast was good, overall a good choice

Clean room, great breakfast and close to the beach with very friendly staff and good wifi. Older style building with plenty of character. A couple minutes walk to the beach and a short drive to the main drag of Hermanus.
