“Absolutely Fantastic!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2014

We stayed here over Christmas and honestly we couldn't have ask for anywhere better to stay. We had a proper Christmas breakfast with allllll the trimmings! Delicious!! We stayed in the Abalone room and had our own door leading on the balcony with the ocean just there!! The ladies are very friendly and very helpful!! There is definitely no mistake in rating this lovely place no.1 in Hermanus!

My family recently were lucky enough to have spent 4 days at this truly special guesthouse. Belinda and her team made us feel at home, taken care of and spoilt during our time here. It was the perfect location to see Hermanus and the surrounding areas. The room was first class and every provision made to make sure we had everything we needed. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious and we were very sad to leave.

Lots of extra touches that set this Guesthouse a part from others.
Over and above our expectations, excellent location, beautiful rooms, and wonderful fresh cooked breakfast.
Don't stay anywhere else in Hermanus.

The service and attention to detail were amazing! The staff were knowledgable about the area, and even recommended better shore-side locations for whale spotting than expensive, packed whale tours. The guest house is positioned on a quiet water-front road, perfect for the viewing the breathtaking South African sunsets. On our next trip to South Africa, 138 is definitely where we will stay.

Room Tip: There are a couple of rooms with ocean-front views, though if they are already booked, no worries...

The guesthouse is in a wonderful location in front of the ocean and only a short drive to the centre of Hermanus. Our rooms was extremely comfortable and well furnished, as was the guesthouse. Breakfast was delicious! Plentiful and convenient parking at the back of the guesthouse. Lots of nice (thoughtful) touches which you will discover if you visit...
The owners and staff were extremely friendly and happy to help with travel plans. Would definitely return if we came back to Hermanus.

Room Tip: I would recommend a room at the front facing the ocean.
