    Spacious, comfortable room and a wonderful host

    I spent one night here on a work trip and the only thing I'm sorry about is that it was just one night. I will definitely be back. The room came as a pleasant surprise. It is very spacious, with a basic kitchenette and a comfortable sitting area for watching TV. It is sparkling clean, with quality white cotton bed linen and a mosquito net. The location is perfect within easy walking distance to the 24 hour Engen shop and a few good restaurants and breakfast spots across the road. John is a wonderful host who responded to messages timeously, and understands hospitality. When I explained that I had a bakkie load of photography equipment with me, and no energy to schlepp it upstairs to my room, he generously offered the use of his personal garage. Thank you, John! Hospitality like this makes such a difference.

    Affordable and comfortable family get-away

    This was the perfect way for our family to spend a long weekend in a home-away-from-home apartment. The rainy weather kept us indoors for most of the time, but the good wifi and indoor-braai meant that we could still enjoy the time. We had to ask for some extra towels and toiletries, but other than that, we were very happy and will definitely recommend Hornbill to family and friends.

    Confortable and quiet

    We only stayed one night, as planned. Hornbill House is a little away from Hermanus town center but it's easy to park the car, safe, close to shopping. It has everything to cook as well as being a confortable accommodation. We would really recommend it.

    Cosy place, great location with self catering

    We came back to SA after a big tour in the summer because we wanted to spend more time around Hermanus, to that end were on a bit of a budget this time. Hornbill House was really well priced, in a brilliant location for getting around and gave us the freedom of some self catering. The room was really cosy, the bathroom a bit rustic, but roomy and perfectly adequate. We had a problem with the water a few days after we arrived, it wasn´t the fault of the owner, the local reservoir had been allowed to dry out (!!!) anyway all efforts were made to look after us and all the staff went above and beyond to make the rest of our stay wonderful. I would certainly go back if I was taking the same sort of trip.
