Property was clean and inviting. Close enough for a nice walk into the town center. Breakfast was excellent.
Annamarie and David were very personable and helpful.
We truly enjoyed our stay in Hermanus because of them.

Unfortunately we had just one day in Hermanus. We still wanted to do the cage diving with sharks and Whale watching. Immediately after arrival the owner of the B&B went out of her way to arrange that for us and succeeded.
The room was very clean and cosy, the atmosphere very friendly. When you are in Hermanus, go to the Potting Shed!

We have been at the Potting Shed Guest House for only one night but despite the fact one of the ladies in charge of the breakfast was sick, Annamarie, the manager and another employee did their best for ensuring an appropriate service.
Nice room but a bit small for 2 people with their luggage.

Thank you for taking the time to review us - however I'm a bit intrigued by your comment regarding breakfast. We don't have any "ladies" that work in the kitchen? I'm the cook, Dave is the waiter and Doreen helps us as needed - just the 3 of us.

The standard rooms are the smallest & a cheaper rate than the deluxe or studio room. The cupboards in the standard rooms have been purposely built to take 2 suitcases.

The Potting Shed - self catering apartment.


This was our third stay on the Whale Rock Estate and the second staying with the Potting Shed and using one of their self catering apartments. This time we spent a very enjoyable 17 days in the apartment.

We stayed in the same apartment that we had used the previous year and on arrival Dave had made us a lovely loaf of bread and when we entered the apartment a wonderful gift from the Potting Shed was waiting for us and half way through our stay Annamarie had made us some of her tasty lemon curd and more whale cookies and rusks.

Once again the apartment was well equipped, very clean and had everything we needed for our stay. Towels were plentiful and these and bed linen were changed every 5 days along with a clean of the apartment. It is a very homely apartment and as on our previous stay we enjoyed using the dining area watching the world go by, listening to the birds, watching the waves and trying to spot a whale or two.

The complex was still immaculate with very friendly staff. On this trip we used the pool on several occasions and enjoyed sitting in the garden by the pool.

Annamarie and Dave are passionate about caring for their guests and making their stay with them enjoyable. Nothing seems too much trouble for them and we have recommended the Potting Shed as a place to stay if you visit Hermanus on our return home to several people who are interested in vsiting the Hermanus area.

Thank you to you and your team for another brilliant stay in Hermanus and possibly we can come back next year and see you all again.

Nice place, excellent service. Annamarie and David take good care of their guests and even helped us finding a good restaurant. Everything you need is in the nice room, you can sit on the veranda and their is a pool. Breakfast is very good. If you want to say something: the room is not too big. You can park your car near the room on their own ground.
