We had a lovely two-night stay at Aloe Guest House for part of our two weeks adventuring in South Africa - we only wish our time in Hermanus been longer! The room was spacious, bed was very comfortable, and the hospitality is top notch. Lesley and John were out of town the weekend we were there but their friends Francois and Karla were incredibly helpful in all of my specific requests for things like local Afrikaans cuisine or braai to fulfill my memories from when I studied in South Africa while I was in university 17 years ago. We used Hermanus as our base to explore Cape Agulhas and visit the beautiful area beaches. Coming home to the Aloe Guest House and having a nice dip in the plunge pool after a hot day of adventures was just lovely. Excellent breakfast each morning hit the spot, too!

We booked Aloe Guest house because we wanted a pool for our 3 year old if it was hot, as well as a space for her to sleep. We didn't need the pool in the end but it was such a lovely view out of our bedroom that i'm so pleased we booked here! Has a family vibe as John & Lesley create a lovely atmosphere. The rooms are lovely with high ceilings, comfortable beds, solar power and gas boilers to help with load shedding.
They provide a lovely and generous breakfast each morning - yoghurt and granola in your room and a cooked breakfast to order in the dining space.
John provided some fantastic recommendations which made our trip - thank you so much for them all!

We wish you all the best with the guesthouse and would love to come back in the future.

Dear Team, thanks for the great time we had last week during our stopover in Hermanus. We felt very comfortable and really got some great tips from your side about where to go for dinner, seeing whales, shopping or doing daytrips. Thanks also for organizing the whalewatching. We had some funny discussions about rugby!
One important thing is that when we had a little issue in the bathromm you immediately took care of it and when we came back it was perfetly solved. Thanks again and best regards Max and Flo

We had a wonderful two night stay at the Aloe Guest House. Lesley and John are so welcoming and friendly and helped us book our activities while we were in Hermanus. The rooms are big and exceptionally clean with all the amenities you would expect. The guest house is a very short walk into town and even though it is situated on a main road, we can honestly say that we did not hear any road traffic at all. Breakfast was excellent and tasty too with a variety of choices. We will definitely stay there again the next time we visit Hermanus.

Superfriendly and interesting and helpful recommendations from the hosts. You can ask John for any recommendations for golf, hiking, trips, excursations and he will please you with great knowledge and some extra flavours.

The breakfast was fantastic with many good options. Rooms were big enough, nice and clean, albeit a little outdated

John was an amazing host and the Guest house is perfect suitable for hosting couples and larger groups (three couples and a baby).
The rooms are neat and tidy and have all amenities necessary.
We had a great braai on the Saturday evening and really felt at home in this guest house.

The check in and out was easy. Owner stays on the property. Room was comfortable for our family. Parking available in the yard. Breakfast was adequate for a non meat eater. There were two roof leaks in the room but i am sure the owner will sort that out. I suggest that in future the owner responds to whatsapp messages. Other reviews mentioned a pre-morning yoghurt and muesli in the room and biscuit shortbread in the room, but we did not experience that.

Aloe guest house is clean, spacious with well equipped rooms and a sparkling pool. Breakfasts are good with hot and cold food available with a great English breakfast. John and Lesley are great hosts, with plenty of ideas of where to go and what to see. Ideally located for whale watching and the Hemel En Aarde wine route. We are frequent visitors to Aloe Guest House and will return again as soon as we can. Highly recommended 👍

We highly recommend this place!!!! Perfect hosts and best beds ever!
While it can get cold during the whale season you can nicely warm up again with a warm bath and the heat blankets.
Be surprised by welcome snacks :-)
