We stayed here on a room on,y basis. The accommodation was spacious and clean without being luxury. The staff were friendly and helpful at all times. The property is a short distance from the towi centre and an ideal base.

This is one of our favourite places to stay and we will return again next year. We have the family room(although only 2 of us) at the front which has a large internal area and great 1st floor terrace. Nothing is too much trouble and the creations at breakfast we enjoy greatly. A 10 minute walk takes you to the...

We spent 5 nights at 78 on 5th in Hermanus and were very pleased with our choice. We were welcomed by Zelda who was very friendly, welcoming and helpful. We took room 3 which was really spacious and had a huge furnished balcony with a view over a green unbuilt area then the main road and houses to the sea....

This place is great for the cost. It's in the middle between town and great beaches so we thought the location was good. You can get cheap taxis to town as it's not far but too far to walk. Rooms and breakfast were great. Wifi in our room was poor but you can use lounge or pool area.

We had a great stay here. Pool area is lovely and our room looked out to the mountain and wildlife - it was lovely to wake up to. They have great patio doors with mosquito proofing so you are safe but it is open for the birdsong in the morning. Breakfast is great. It is plated so you get what...

During a recent two week road trip through the Cape and before sadly making our way home, we spent the most memorable 2 nights at the "78 on 5th" in Hermanus . Without hesitation, we all agreed that 78 on 5th was equal to some of the the best experience of our trip. The owners Tom and Jose were most...

Can't fault it, the Guesthouse is walking distance from restaurants and the beach with very friendly and helpful owners. Cliff path is a few meters away and a true highlight. Staying at 78 on 5th is highly recommended

We had a lovely stay at this guest house. Everything was very clean, spacious and comfortable. Our host was friendly. The breakfast was great. The property is situated close to good beaches and close enough to the center of Hermanus. We really enjoyed out stay and would have loved to have stayed longer. We will be sure to stay there...

We stayed one night and were very well received. Easy to find and near a grocery store. It's a little off the city center. And they. Do serve only breakfast. However, there is a tuk tuk service that drops you and pick you up in town for a few bucks. Place is very clean and relaxing. Service is perfect. Beds...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Because 78on5th is owner run it is your home away from home. Situated at the foot of the Musselberg Mountains bordering the Fernkloof Nature Reserve we are walking distance from the world famous Grotto beach with its Blue flag status. This makes us the ideal holiday or overnight destination - especially when visiting during Whale season.Enjoy a luxurious sleep while the mountains echo the calming sounds of the sea before you wake up to a delicious breakfast with a difference. ... more   less
