We celebrated our wedding anniversary weekend at the Schulphoek House, what a treat it was. On our arrival we were met by the porter at the car park, he was the most friendliest person. Upon check in we were upgraded to a fantastic sea view room, that had the most spectacular views. Nomfundo is a GEM. Very helpful and made our stay extra nice. I was also pleasantly surprised that she is the in house chef as well. The breakfast spread was great. The rooms are delightful and airy, with the amazing sea views. The Salt Water pool was really refreshing. The bar fridge complimentary and well stocked with water/milk etc. If i could, i would have given more than an excellent rating. I will definitely be back.

We had such a lovely stay. The rooms are absolutely stunning and the service from the staff is unmatched. The amazing breakfast is worth mentioning as it caters for everyone- even a picky eater like myself. Would definitely come back no doubt!

We took 6 days leave for our first ever break in Hermanus. Stunning town, but what made it more special was Schulphoek House. Staff were very friendly but very efficient understanding that they were running a skeleton staff. The room we had was very spacious and comfortable, not to mention the stunning view. In addition to this, the food was just fantastic and so well prepared and presented. We will definitely be back for another holiday. Wolf

Since we last stayed at Schulphoek House just over two years ago, the have done some great improvements. The reception is a great addition, as is the big generator on site which runs the entire place during power outages or load shedding, and the double glazing windows on the front side of rooms are also great. Despite COVID all attempted to sanitise and keep reasonable social distance and all staff wore good mask (only slight concern being the owner who wore a vented mask), and free sanitiser and even small packs were provided for all guests.We took the cheapest garden rooms, which were still nice and spacious. Only slight concern was water pressure which was super low in our bathroom. Nomfundo was amazing and made us feel very special. The complimentary waters and soft drinks in the min-bar were also a great touch, and WiFi, while expectedly slow (as Sandbaai does not yet have Fibre available - but its on the way) was amazingly reliable all over the hotel. Well done on all the work you have done to make a great place even better. The Views of the sea from some of the rooms, and breakfast room is also amazing!
