Great place to stay and would recommend this to anybody, great rooms and one of the best breakfasts of our journey. Great attention to detail and cleanliness. The hosts were very informative of the area and advised us of great places to visit

The room was perfect: excellent bed and bathroom! We loved the tea and cookies that had to our disposal in our room. The bulding is pretty beautiful! The breakfast was very good! The owners made us feel completely unique!

Our stay at Dorphuys was excellent, with the owners going above and beyond to assist us when our vehicle broke down, Koos drove to pick us up and took us back the vehicle the next day to assist us with trying to get it started and even though checkout was at 10 the kept our luggage in our room and...

We stayed at Hermanus Dorpshuys during the Cape Epic 2017, it could not have been better with the guest house being next to the venue. The service was outstanding and we were so well looked after, we could not have asked for any better! Koos and Cecilia did everything we asked for and a bit more, so friendly!! I will...

Remarkable attention to detail, the staff is going all-out to ensure perfect service! Absolute cleanliness,white-glove service for breakfast, deep concern for the guests' well-being, top-notch facility. We obtained a great rate online and felt we received much more than the price we paid. Minor issues: the staff repeatedly entered our room in our absence to tidy up towels, turn on...

Thank you for your time and effort to reviewed your stay with us. We are glad that you had a very good experience. The walk along the cliff path to town is much longer than through the residential area. It also depends on the route you walk. The suggested shortest route to town is a maximum fifteen minute casual walk...

This is just TERRIFIC....the accommodation was pristine...the attention to detail way beyond what you would expect of a guest house....Cecilia clearly takes great pride in her home and loves what she does...and loves Hermanus..she was full of information about the place, best restaurants in the area including their menus and an offer to book one for you...she couldn't do enough...

Beautiful garden and breakfast room and spacious traditionally decorated bedrooms. Really felt like you were a guest in someone's house rather than a bland hotel room. The host, Cecilia, was so helpful and had amazing attention to detail in the way she ran the place - constantly refreshed milk & biscuits, glasses provided when she noticed we had drinks in...

We sadly only stayed one night. This guesthouse is perfection. The owners, Roos & Cecilia, were very welcoming, & have thought of everything for the guest's comfort & enjoyment. The house is beautiful inside and out & we hope to return one day. Thanks for a lovely stay.
