We stayed 2000 and loved this place. Alas we were unable to travel 2021. Dave and Annamarie moved our stay and deposit until this year without any fuss or penalty which cannot be said for many venues. We stayed here for 6 nights in their amazing studio apartment. The Potting Shed is close to the golf course and town. Lovely little pool and everything you want including Dave's scrumptious brekkie. As soon as we book our flights for next year our next booking will be the Potting Shed.

Dave and Annamarie are amazing guest house owners and hosts. The staff are friendly, kind and helpful. Annamarie booked some activities for us such as Shark Cage Diving and Sea Kayaking. If you want to know the best spots in Hermanus, just ask, they have it all covered. The breakfast was absolutely superb just as stated on the advertisement, thank you Dave! The overall stay was comfortable, warm and welcoming. Thank you for your hospitality, I'm sure we will see you again.

We had a work trip scheduled in Hermanus for 2 days and the Potting Shed was the perfect stay. We really enjoyed the Studio/loft which is spacious, well equipped for self catering but its highlight must be the outside deck with braai. A really private space and we would definitely return. PS When you enjoy Annemarie's breakfast - make sure to order the pancakes at least once - they are sensational!

Owners were extremely welcoming & friendly. We did enjoy our stay, breakfast was delicious would just suggest timing between servings. Overall we had a pleasant stay, our room was comfortable and covid safe. Freezer in the room was noisy. Highly recommended 💯

Beautifully appointed, meticulously maintained, spotlessly clean and really comfortable. We enjoyed 3 nights here and loved the place. Dave and Annamarie are hard working and delightful hosts. Breakfasts were sumptuous and delicious. Location is very convenient. It is quiet and restful. We have nothing but good things to say about this accommodation. Can highly recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay in Hermanus.
