Very friendly welcome, rooms are spacious and well equipped. There are 4/5 star hotels in the world that do not match this B&B !

We have had such a super stay here. Nothing seemed too much trouble and we were made to feel very special, and truly pampered. Wonderful breakfasts - wonderful views - wonderful welcome. Plus the unexpected bonus of under floor heating in the bathroom ! Definately 10/10.

We stayed here for two nights during the World Cup and had a very nice time. We were greeted with a fresh cup of coffee and Mary was so kind to book a table at the Harbour Rock (great steaks and fish!) for us. Breakfast was excellent with several hot dishes to be ordered and tasteful fresh bread. To start...

As I'm disabled and use a wheelchair finding accessible accommodation can be a very nerve wrecking and disheartening exprience but I was lucky to find this guest house. Jean and Mary were wonderful hosts, their positive and very helpful attitude made my stay very comfortable and relaxing. They were always on hand to help and give advice. My tastefully decorated...

We enjoyed a brief stay (2 nights) at Francolin Hof and found it excellent. If you choose to walk into town along the cliff path, 2 hours +, someone will collect you and bring you back. You don't get that service very often! Nothing seemed to be a problem. We chose to stroll down to Grotto Beach where we found...

This was our third stay with Mary & husband Jean who are a really welcoming couple. Their guest house remains the best we have stayed at in the whole of the Cape region. It sits high above Hermanus giving spectacular views across the bay from each of 5 the rooms. Each room is en-suite and spacious with stylish decor and...

Stayed for two nights whilst on honetmoon. The owners, Mary and Jean really looked after us. Tea and homemade buiscuits, and a bottle of Sparkling wine on our arrival. Mary even drove us to a resteraunt they had booked for us, and also collected us from the resteraunt. Breakfast was wonderfull. Comfortable room with great views. Friendly and highly recommended.
