If you are going to Hermanus or surrounds - stay here! Schulphoek is a peaceful haven away from the hustle and bustle. Stunning views in fabulous setting, delicious food, great (spotlessly clean) rooms and most importantly - lovely warm and sincere people. The owners and staff have managed to create an atmosphere of belonging. Wonderful. Memorable. Thank you Janet, Wehrner...

We loved Schulphoek! The view from the self catering cottage is outstanding (and we were there out of whale watching season). And the staff really went out of there way to make us feel very welcome! Definitely recommend

We only spent one night at Schulphoek but it was a wonderful experience. The view and sound of the ocean from our room was absolutely wonderful. Our room was beautifully furnished and the bed was almost unbelievably comfortable. Our breakfast was delicious and Chris, Numfundo and the other staff took great care of us and made us feel incredibly welcome....

We stayed here for two nights of our honeymoon and couldn't have asked for better hospitality and food. The rooms are simple and well fitted but it is the staff in Chris, Nomfundo and the other kitchen staff that make the stay memorable. The breakfast (which is included) is amazing and we highly recommend the 3 course dinner, especially if...

We stayed here just 1 night on our trip to South Africa. The B and B was a little out of time but offered fantastic views over the ocean and in the right season would have been perfect for whale/dolphin watching. Chris the manager was delightful and friendly. We ate dinner in the B and B with the set menu....

We were in Hermanus just for a day and to be honest, we chose Schulphoek because we couldn't get Windsor or Birkenhead. And when our gps couldn't locate Schulphoek, we thought our fears were coming true. And driving through gravel paths and small lanes and by lanes to get there was just not helping. But when we were led to...

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
