Fantastic place to stay. Beautifully located in Hermanus, just next to the coast. The hostess Gail is really lovely and very helpful. Can't think of a better place to relax and enjoy South Africa. Next time we will stay longer!

I have visited Cape Town for a couple of years now for my work. I heard about Hermanus, this wonderful spot just a 1.5 hour drive from cape town. Some of my colleges already told me some stories about this guest house, so I booked for 3 nights. And what a place to just relax and sit back! It is perfectly located next to the beach and the cliff path. Both for looking for adventure or just to lounge next to the swimming pool, it’s up to you. The host is always present to help you with booking restaurant and activities all around the town. And she knows a lot, since has already lived here for decades. About the place, I slept in this beautiful room with sea view with a balcony (book this one!). All rooms are different so there is a lot of choice. Rooms are clean, and breakfast is more than you need. I always have preferred guest houses as they are way more giving you the ‘home experience’. Oh almost forgot, they have also taken good measures for the current Covid situation, 1.5 meter distance, you know the drill ;). Well just to conclude, do not look any further, you won’t regret it. Cheers!

The house is beautifully located with sea view. We had a spacious room and the beds were really big! Clean, good fresh breakfast, Gail (house manager) was really friendly and helpful. The swimmingpool is clean and has sea view. Wonderful experience!

We've had a fantastic stay at La Fontaine in Hermanus. The house is truly wonderful; well decorated, fully equipped, very clean and important: good beds. The location of the house is perfect: beautiful ocean view and walking distance to all restaurants shops and attractions. We had a lovely walk on the cliff path, which starts right in front of the house. Thank you for your hospitality. We felt more than welcome and enjoyed our stay!
