It’s true - accommodation in Hermanus that offers a beach view is plentiful, but there are few that provide the welcoming hospitality and comfort that The Brown Jug Guest House has. Not only are you welcomed by the owners, Abel and Louise, when you first arrive, but their friendly staff as well as Labradors - Keesha and Tula, and kitties - Squeek and Mikey, are always excited to meet new guests. The Brown Jug is centrally situated in sought-after Eastcliff - a quiet leafy suburb, and is a mere two minute stroll away from the shops, restaurants and seafront where you can enjoy the town’s famous land-based whale watching from the cliff tops. With a pristine garden, comfortable private units, and a sparkling salt water swimming pool, The Brown Jug allows you and your family or group to relax on your private patio or on one of the pool loungers while enjoying the tranquillity of your beautiful surroundings. The Brown Jug’s guest units each sleep between two to four adults and sleeper couches can accommodate a child or two in Units One or Two, with Unit Three being a Studio Room. All the units are individually equipped and each one has a full bathroom, with shower and bath, lounge, dining area, kitchen and comfy plush furniture. Each unit also has a flat screen TV, DSTV and DVD player with free Wi-Fi access – but I doubt you will want to browse on your phone given the variety of activities and places to see that Hermanus has on offer. A short stroll from The Brown Jug will take you to the seafront, the quaint shops and the antique shops that Hermanus is renowned for, and to its fine restaurants for a long lazy lunch overlooking the sea, with the distinct possibility of a whale show. Then there’s the cliff paths, the Marine Tidal pool for a fully energized swim and the Fernkloof Nature Trail with the first of the available walks – The Elephant Walk – a mere 600 meters away. There’s also the Saturday Craft Market where friends (and their pets) meet, and the blue flag beaches that are just five minutes away by car. Mountain bike trails are in abundance and truly magnificent scenery awaits with routes up the valley with clearly marked routes catering to various degrees of expertise. Hike into Fernkloof Nature Reserve or explore the Hemel en Aarde Valley just 6 kilometres away and taste the wines of the region. If you are looking to experience Hermanus from a place catered for families or groups, then The Brown Jug Guest House should be high on your list.

we stayed in the 2 bed tuxedo junction which was a lovely spacious 2 bed unit. All the rooms lead from the immaculate gardens, and the grounds have a huge pool-much bigger than expected from the photos. The room was very comfortable- super extra large comfortable beds, nice lounge area with an enclosed fire. Nice private outside braai area which can be accessed from both bedrooms. We were met by Louise the friendly owner who showed us round and off road parking was a bonus too. The only negative was you had to access the kitchen through the main bedroom which might be a problem for some, maybe if 2 couples were sharing but not a problem for us as a family. All in all a great find, good value for money and a great location.

We were here for a very short time, but it was enjoyable. The suites have plenty of room to relax and spread out. It's a short walk to the harbor and the Cliff Path Walking Trail, which is a nice place to meander. We left early in the morning for a shark dive and it was a seamless departure.

Value for money & will definitely stay there again. Best self catering place thus far in Hermanus and close to everything. You don`t need transport to get around, all places of interest in walking distance. Very child friendly.

Our stay at the Brown Jug Guest House was safe, comfortable and quiet. It was the perfect place to get home to after a day and to relax. The room was cleaned everyday by a very friendly lady who made us feel welcome.

We booked via boking n the guest house and got an upgrade to Marine Terrace because of winter times. The location is great and has a wunderful view on the ocean. The appartment is well equipped and very nice and safe as well. So every time again...
