An excellent, immaculately run and beautifully clean guesthouse in a sympathetically restored and extended Cape Dutch house. Spacious bedroom and bathroom and very comfortable beds. Magnificent breakfast menu. Certainly on our wish list for the next visit to Hermanus.

Koos and Cecilia make you feel welcome, valued and safe with their conscientious approach to virus protection measures. They are very knowledgeable and helpful about the town and its facilities. We had a great three-night stay in a very good room and enjoyed top class breakfasts. We highly recommend Hermanus Dorpshuys.

We recently visited Hermanus for a few days and it was the first time we have stayed at this guesthouse. The breakfasts, rooms and communal facilities are all excellent and the guesthouse is spotlessly clean. The visit was greatly enhanced by the hosts who were very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. The guesthouse is within walking distance or a two minute drive of the town centre. It is a top quality place and you won't find a better place to stay.

Cecilia is a charming and helpful hostess. All 3 generations enjoyed the stay. The rooms we're well appointed and all necessary soaps etc were available in the bathroom. Cecilia recommended several local restaurants and went out of her way to try to book for us as it was a Saturday night. Many thanks

Koos and Cecilia Pretorius were the most gracious hosts my family and I have encountered on our travels. They were such a delight to be around with; and their suggestions in visiting the various attractions and restaurants in Hermanus was most helpful. The guest house was luxurious and homely; and we were not short of any creature comforts we are used to on all our travels. Koos's humility and Cecilia's wicked sense of humour are a sight to behold. On behalf of my family i would like to extend a very greatful thank you; and we will definitely be back in the next year or two to indulge in your hospitality. Thank you so very much. Manoj, Wasti, Ashish & Nishay
