WOW, an incredible location in Hermanus, with a magnificent view. The service was world class and thank you Natasha for being an incredible Hostess. The breakfast was 5 Star, and room was extremely comfortable. Next time I hope to stay longer.

I had a great time. I found the charm I was looking for in my room. My room has beautiful French doors that lead to the private garden. Natasha was quick to respond to my needs and accommodating. I had a great time eating their breakfast and the view was amazing. It was 5-10 minute walk to the waterfront. I hope they will maintain the cleanliness of the curtains and sofas. Your hospitality made my stay so comfortable, thank you.

Our family enjoyed our fist stay in Hermanus with La Fontaine. The service we received from Natasha and the staff was first class. Natasha is the best host we have had of any of our holiday stays. Our son enjoys the complimentary fruit, suckers and cookies.

Lovely guesthouse, beautiful view over the sea and walking distance into town! Can get straight onto the cliff walk from here. Secure parking and lovely friendly welcoming staff. Room had sea view but very small room for 2 people and bed also small.

We had the garden suite for 2 nights and it was huge. Big comfy bed with separate bathroom and a sitting room as well as a private garden patio. Sadly it rained horrendously for the whole stay and so the sitting room came in handy for watching movies and getting a takeaway! Breakfast was good, especially the muffins. Nicely located for wonderful sea views and whale watching (we saw one after hours waiting in the rain but worth it!) Also close to town. Pool is not worth noting as more of a bath but who cares when the ocean is on your doorstep. Arlene was our lovely host and was very friendly and informative but sometimes chatted a little too much (sorry but true!)

Guest house was well located in Hermanus and was amazing to see the whales from our balcony and from breakfast. All the staff were attentive and friendly and Natasha made a special effort to introduce herself. Got some great restaurant recommendations a short walk into town.
