About FrancolinHof Guest House

FrancolinHof Guest House overlooks one of the loveliest views in Hermanus of both Mosselberg Mountain and Walker Bay, with each four en-suite rooms having stunning mountain and sea views.

Thanks to its fine position bordering Fernkloof Nature Reserve, guests can step off the doorstep onto a variety of mountain walks for both the energetic and not so energetic. Birds, proteas and other fynbos are prolific in and around our grounds. In addition, the Blue Flag Grotto Beach is just a 10 minute downhill walk away, and the Old Harbour in the centre of Hermanus is a 10 minute drive away.

Wake up to nature in comfortable luxury, far from the noise of traffic yet close to the restaurants and other places of interest. FrancolinHof is also ideally situated to reach other places of interest in the Overberg and Western Cape.

The comfortable lounge with fireplace, and inter-leading breakfast room open onto the patio and are for the use of guests to relax in and enjoy the peaceful and beautiful surroundings. Enjoy breakfast while watching the birds, or sighting whales in the bay in the distance. Breakfast includes healthy and hearty options, and we use home-made and local produce.

Fax and Internet facilities are available, as well as barbecue facilities. We can also arrange a variety of picnic, sundowner, and barbecue baskets on request. In addition, one of the bedrooms is also wheelchair friendly, and we are the proud holders of the first Gold Rating for Universal Accessibility in the Mobility Category awarded by the TGSA to a guest house in South Africa.

Francolinhof is a very well run, beautiful guest house. I think it is located in one of the prettiest spots in Hermanus with great views of the mountain and the sea. It's close enough to the town without being too close, so it's always nice and quiet here. The breakfasts are amazing, so delicious, and the staff are really friendly and give excellent service. I would highly recommend Francolinhof.

What I look for in a guest house is a clean bathroom, a good night's sleep, and a square meal. Francolin excels at the basics. Add to this a few luxuries and wonderfully hospitable hosts Mary and Jean, in a truly magnificent setting, and you can't go wrong.
