We stayed at On the Cliff for 3 days. This is an up market B&B situated 5 minutes drive from Hermanus town centre. It has a fantastic view of the Ocean. It is clean and well kept. The breakfast is substantial with a choice of cooked or health. The rooms are large and there are plenty of areas where you can sit and read if the weather is poor. Charmaine and Hylton are perfect hosts always willing to engage in conversation. Charmaine was willing to assist with all our needs. We have stayed there before and will go back anytime.

We had to leave a day early because of bad health. The temporary managers (the Owners were away) were really excellent and most attentive.
