What a fabulous guest house! Stylish, comfortable , quiet, secure. It's 2 mins from the huge and spectacular beach, 5 mins from the golf course and 10 mins from the beautiful town. Veronica and Trevor couldn't have done more to make our stay fantastic. They were both welcoming, friendly and helpful. Spacious room with private courtyard and the guest house has a lovely shared mezzanine area with spectacular views over the bay - a perfect spot for a glass of wine and some sunset watching & star gazing. Would definitely recommend and will return if we're back in Hermanus (which I have to admit, is a place I've fallen a little bit in love with!!)

Knysna is one of the best places to stay on the Garden Route and Leisure Island the best place to stay. Tranquil, safe and groomed. Bollards Bay has a fantastic view of the lagoon and is one of the friendliest B&Bs we have stayed in. The fact that every guest there was a return says everything. The views, two pools and lounge area are lovely. It is a relaxed atmosphere. Rooms are large with comfortable beds ans good shower. The breakfast is a bonus and served on a lovely terrace, with Mike, the owner in attendance and available with help and advice. You will not be disappointed. Great value

We stayed here for one night only as a stop on our route from Wilderness to Franschhoek, but if we wouldn't have had other plans already we would have stayed a bit longer for sure. It is situated in a quiet neighborhood in lovely Hermanus. From the accommodation it's a short walk to the beach.For restaurants you need to drive a few minutes. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Good quality breakfast.

the location was very spacious and well located. Friendly owner who gave lots of tipps, the area feels very safe (except for hippos), a street of restraunts is very close by; we also liked the breakfast - the only place in South Africa in 2 weeks where kids got chocolate spread.
