I was a bit hesitant at first upon pulling up to Schulphoek but once we were greeted at the gate, our honeymoon seclusion commenced! The staff was incredibly friendly, rooms were VERY spacious and elegant, the views were absolutely stunning and the food was to die for! Highly recommend taking a stroll at sunset along the beachfront path. You must...

What a lovely venue. Beautiful sea view and warm and friendly service. Easy access to beach walks. I can highly recommend this guesthouse. Breakfast was delicious too. The rooms were lovely with lots of attention to detail.

This charming little guest house grows on you. If you are looking for minimalism then look elsewhere! The owners are obviously collectors and the large rooms are filled with an eclectic range of vintage furniture. However the bed was comfortable, the linen sheets excellent, the water hot and we enjoyed our short stay here. Strangely in the 2 days we...

That guesthouse is more a 5 five star hotel than a really one. Erika, a very helpful and lovely manager that we could have in Hermanus, gave us a upgrade room with the most exceptional view ever to the Schulphoek bay! Really...we used to look whales from our beatiful and spacious room. All the amenities were great - fruits, candies,...

An amazing hotel with five-star rooms and views. They have an organic garden where they grow their own fruits and vegetables; they have a very cute toward us garden with baby tortoises they find crossing the road, they nurture and feed them until they are large enough to be re-released. This is about 10 minute drive from the way all...

We are visiting from the States and this guest house is one of the best we have been to. The room is very nice and large(scallop). The front desk has been very helpful with reservations at local restaurants. I can not say enough about this guest house. If you are coming to Hermanus, be sure to stay here as they...

My wife and I had a breakaway weekend recently in Hermanus. Due to low season, we were lucky enough to get the sea facing suite for the night. The suite is extremely nice and we could see why they are a five star establishment. Schulphoek is large guesthouse property with a very nice layout of rooms all accessible from the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Schulphoek guesthouse overlooks the bay from which it received its name - an idyllic expanse of ocean, where whales are frequent visitors. Beyond its quiet beaches, you will find nature paths and bird watching. Just 5km from Hermanus centre, Schulphoek offers an eco-conscious refuge, with seven sumptuously decorated suites that overlook either our garden or the sea. Food is our passion. You will find a three-course menu du jour, served at our social table (or separate) with organic produce from our potager garden and fresh-line fish. Our cellar is a haven for aficionados, featuring 12,000 bottles of local wine. ... more   less
