Keep up the high standards guys! Always a delightful get-away whilst in Hermanus
Good value for money and the service we received from Bronwyn for organizing transport for us was excellent. Beautiful location too.
Fabulous location but room VERY warm”
The location and property itself is beautiful, a short safe walk down to shops and restaurants. We stayed in room 4 under thatch roof and it was extremely hot at night in December and quite noisy due to thatch roof. It was well maintained however there was a cotton bud and tooth floss on the floor next to bin when we arrived. The staff and breakfast was great so I would stay again in a cooler room...
Great place to stay!”
A lovely cottage with lots of charm! I wish we had more time! It's also steps away from the Town center and ocean. The staff was very friendly.
Price value top location. verry recommendable :)
Het my 50 verjaarsdag saam met vriende daar gaan vier. Het blomme. En n vrugte pak gekry. in n vuurwarm borrelbad gekuier. Een woord. Fantasties.
Fantastic breakfast, great value, very helpful staff”
I booked this for my boyfriend who was on on a long road trip and needed a convenient stop-over in Hermanus. Nautilus Cottage did not disappoint! In fact, out of all the places I booked along the route - including places with higher star ratings and much higher prices - the breakfast here was hands down the best. You order breakfast the night before, and then gets cooked when you arrive for breakfast. Great selection of items for breakfast and all cooked to order. The staff had provided heaters in the room, which is an absolute necessity for the chilly and rainy winter weather. The location is amazing, the view to the sea is great and it is easy to find. Very quiet (not sure how quiet in December!) and within easy access to shops, restaurants etc - so all in all very well placed. Room was comfortable, comfy bed. TV a bit small, DSTV channels very limited. Bathroom was great, plenty of hot water - with a heater - good water pressure. Checkin was easy, very warm welcome! The staff were so helpful - I contacted them in advance and they communicated well and made sure everything went smoothly. Parking was not covered but very secure.
Brilliant. To either relax in the hot tub or use as a base to go walking into hermanus it was a great hotel to stay in. Breakfast was also a delight! made us both feel welcome and gave great tips for us to travel about. Wonderful hotel
recommendation: very nice, clean and comfortable”
We loved it . Wish we could have stayed longer.”
A nice lodge facing the sea”
It was clean and nice. Facing the sea. The area is in general safe, though we were advised not to walk to the rocks area on the other side of the restaurants. Good seafood was served in some restaurants near the hotel, which was about 15 mins away on foot.
The perfect base for a holiday in Hermanus”
We only stayed 2 nights in Hermanus and on reflection this wasn't long enough. Nautilus cottage was centrally located and gave us a great base to explore the town and the surrounding areas. The staff couldn't do enough to make sure we got the most from our short visit.
I can only describe the room and level of service at the Nautilus as being 5 star in every way. The new management are doing an excellent job and cater for your every need. PS the breakfast is fantastic
Beautiful hotel in walking distance to the center”
Nautilus Cottage is a small hotel which has some rooms with stunning sea views. Though my room was not advertised having a view I could see the sea from my big terrace. The room very nice and spotless. Especially the bathroom was amazing with its big tub right under the roof window. I also enjoiyed the swimming pool and the jacuzzi. The center of a Hermanus was reachable by a short walk of about 10-15 min. Like this, almost all restaurants were in walking distance as well. The owners of the hotel were very, very friendly and offered their help whenever they could. Also the breakfast was very good. I will definitely come back!!
Friendly hotel with great service”
Cannot fault the service. Clean rooms, great staff.
Great service and super location”
We loved our stay at Nautilus which is excellently situated to watch whales. One morning from the front door we could clearly see a mother and her albino calf frolicking in the bay! Walking distance to excellent restaurants, shops as well as right on the cliff path - we made very little use of our car while staying there. Rooms and bathrooms are large and well-appointed. Mara and Annelien were most attentive and went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible. They also provided delicious breakfasts.
Gut für einen kurzen Aufenthalt ”
Waren nur eine Nacht dort direkt zum Einstieg in den Urlaub. Dafür war es gut und völlig ausreichend. Das Zimmer war zwar alt, aber gut in Schuss. Frühstück war gut. Die Lage war auch gut, nicht direkt im Getümmel, aber zentral genug um zu den Restaurants zu laufen.
erneut besuchten wir Hermanus, diesmal für das Whale Watching. Im Nautilus fanden wir ein sehr schönes, zentral gelegenes Guesthouse. Sehr schöne Einrichtung, ein exzellentes Frühstück mit ganz feinem und sehr freundlichem Service. Auch für kleine Probleme hatte man sofort reagiert und uns geholfen. E+H Nauer CH-Sempach
