Cecilia and Koos are fabulous hosts... this really is a top class establishment where nothing is too much trouble . Every little detail is catered for... fabulous breakfasts, very comfortable en suite rooms... even chocolates on the beds in the evening. DSTV , free wi-fi, free on site parking... easy to find and very near Hermanus town.. ..we loved it.

We were warmly welcomed into this lovely house by the fantastic hosts. We really enjoyed our time in Hermanus, which was made even better by the guidance and advice from Cecilia on where to explore and where to eat. The location is very safe and within walking distance of the centre of Hermanus and restaurants. Highly recommended.

Cecilia & Koos look after you from before you arrive with offers of help to make activity bookings right through to very end of your stay. Pristine rooms & gardens with service that could not be bettered in any top class hotel. Good location for whale watching at Sievers point & Roman Rock in a nice quiet area. Highly recommended

We unfortunately had only planned to stay a day at the guest house, but we enjoyed our stay. I felt as if I stepped into a colonial hotel with plenty of old world charm. The rooms were designed with wooden furniture with the faint scent that varnished wooden furniture give off. The hostess was friendly and extremely helpful, but at...

The Dorpshuys is a nice small Guesthouse with very friendly service personal. The rooms have a comfortable size and the atmosphere is nice. Breakfast is tasty, too. Only one remark: The beds are quite small and short.
