We stayed for 2 nights and had an amazing suite with balconies that had great views, a lounge area and amazing accommodations. Food was very good. Very well taken care of B&B. Close to anything you want to see or do in Hermanus!

Had the ocean view room, which looks like there was only one with ocean view, which was nice. However, it was like staying in a private house. It may be nice for a family because you essentially could have the house to yourself. For me, my stay was a disappointment having stayed at such other great places with attentive service....

I only stayed for 1 night . But if I get the opportunity to go back to Hermanus I will definitely stay longer. Room was large and very comfortable. Large bathroom with a heater. All good quality amenities. Well stocked mini bar fridge. Good breakfast. And close to the town centre,market and whale watching points.

Pelagus House doesn't look like much when you pass it on Church Street, but when you get inside .. it is a beautiful, well-kept luxury B&B. Really stunning views from the deck, sea-facing rooms and lounge/study. I would imagine that it would be perfect for whale watching, as you are so close to the sea, but don't have to jostle...

I'm so blessed to work in a tour industry. It gives me a opportunity to travel a lot and explore new places. However, I shall not explore any further for the accommodation in Hermanus, since I found a perfect fit. Beautiful view, friendly service, professional stuff, clean rooms, fresh food (even freshly baked bread), pool, jacuzzi, walking distance from the...

Having heard only good reviews of couples who stayed there I can say that Pelagus House exceeded my expectations. While only a couple of the rooms have seaview , our room facing the pool was spacious, spotless clean with all amenities and a large bathroom. I loved the lounge where you look out onto the sea sipping a sherry and...

Very spacious room with a great view. The chairs and the carpet in the room were dirty and the door handle was broken. Breakfast was ok, but not up to standard. Natasha was very friendly. Personally I won't stay there again.

I made a booking asking to be accommodated with an early check in so that we could shower after the wine 2 whales mountain bike race. They advised me that could not accommodate me, so I cancelled the booking with them. I then got rude, aggressive e mails from the owners because I did not immediately cancel the booking through...

I sent the below review directly to Pelagus nearly a month ago as I thought it was fair to do so, however I have had no response or acknowledgement. Probably says it all. When we arrived, our greeting was welcomed with "you’re late!" In all my days I have never been accused of being late for check in especially as...
