I had a very pleasant stay at this B&B - room was very comfortable - lovely bed - and the staff very welcoming. I didn't need to be close to the heart of Hermanus (which is quite a walk on foot) and had a vehicle, so the location was fine for me. Breakfast was delicious!

We slept in the upper right room at the front and enjoyed the wonderful view of the bay. In line with previous comments: very friendly and helpful staff, delicious breakfast, nicely/ cosy decorated and very convenient. The spacious shared balcony at the front was great to see the ocean and hear the ocean.

This has to be one of the best B & B's we have stayed in, from the moment we arrived for 4 nights the manager Michelle and her staff could not have been more helpful. The rooms are comfortable with queen size beds, bath robes and the fluffiest soft towels conceivable, well stocked mini bars and a nice cheese platter...

Visited Hermanus 1997. False memory! Villa Blu is in 'greater' Hermanus. Not central - prob an hour + walk, but stunning location just above the Blue Cross beach. Property is lush, rooms lovely, pool fab, breakfast cooked to order and view to bay (from balcony) fantastic. So it is a drive to town ( or apparently Tuc Taxis are good...

From arrival to departure was absolute bliss. The staff was very friendly and made us feel most welcome. The room we had was soooo comfortable with a breathtaking seaview and all the luxuries we could hope for. From the Nespresso coffee machine to the lovely soft towels on a heated towel rail to the clean crisp linen and so much...

The personnel at this B&B go out of their way to make you feel welcome. We spent one night here, and our restaurant of choice was booked for us. Beds are comfortable and big. Decor is elegant and muted. Fresh fruit and champagne are free on arrival, nice touch. Breakfast - plenty of seasonal fresh fruit, buffet with muesli, croissants,...

Even though we arrived late and dark, the manageress, Michelle, welcomed us with her friendliness and hospitality. She kindly assisted us to our rooms and invited us to relax in front of a crackling fire with some champagne and a cheese platter. The rooms were warm, with the most comfy bed topped with perfect white linen and a cozy blanket....
