On deciding to book a place in Hermanus for my boyfriend and his mother for her birthday, I was happy to find 78on5th. When we arrived we were greeted and taken to a perfect little room with a view that we could only just see the ocean, but it wasn't a problem. I was very happy with the room, location and staff. However...the next morning for breakfast we were given "Day 1" of the breakfast menu, which we were told was an omelette. Instead it was something that i really battled to eat as it was an omelette attempt with what tasted like tomato and onion mix, some cooked sliced ham, covered in grated cheese and then just put on top of a piece of soft white bread...not even toast. the worst part was that they added, what i can only imagine, was an overpowering chicken spice over the food and all around the plate for decoration so you couldn't get around it. I felt sick for the rest of the morning and couldn't get the taste of that spice out of my mouth. The next morning we were offered "Day 2" of the menu which was french toast with...the same ham, cheese and tomato (making something different with the same ingredients). For fear of feeling sick 2 days in a row i asked if I could just have french toast without the added extra's. But even though I received 2 decent and tasty pieces of french toast, the plate was yet again covered in that horrible tasting spice. I couldn't touch it until I got a new plate. And my boyfriend and his mother ended up eating their french toast with a piece of cooked ham, tomato and covered in cheese, and the spice. I would go back to 78on5th as I loved the rooms, but I would not eat there again...self catering is the way to go.

Establishment's response

Dear Kerri

Thank you for your review, I do appreciate the feedback and I am sorry your stay was not what you expected it to be.

At 78on5th aim to give our guests an experience they don’t get at other B&B’s. For that reason we serve a plated starter and a plated main course for breakfast. We do not have a buffet as we thought it would be awesome to serve our guests instead of them having to queue for food and we have a unique menu which changes every day to keep it interesting. We also explain to all our guests when they check in about our menu and that we can do anything they want should they not want what’s on the menu for the day. All we ask is for our guests to please advice us the night before as the staff start very early prepping for breakfast. The menu with everything I just explained is also in all our rooms for our guests to go through at their own time. We want to do something our guests would not do at home every day. Our orange juice is freshly squeezed and we make our own fruit salad every morning served in cocktail glasses. We serve bottomless freshly brewed coffee or tea should they prefer and none of my staff will take a plate away without making sure our guests have had enough to eat and that they’ve enjoyed what we had served them. Should a guest not enjoy what was served to him/her we would gladly prepare them something else straight away - which they did. We do this because we want to spoil our guests and make them feel special At the end of the day all we want is for our guests to relax, enjoy the view, fireplace and food while we will do the rest.
