Reviews of La Fontaine Guest House (Hermanus)


"Very good stay"

(Germany) Thomas Richter | 3 November 2014

"Very close to the center of Hermanus. Breakfast at the balcony and watching from there a whale very close. Wow. I can recommend a stay at La Fontaine."


"The perfect place to stay. "

(Germany) Birgit Blum | 24 October 2008

"Quiet and still very close to the center of Hermanus. We were watching the whales right from our balcony - absolutely fantastic. Great breakfast on the veranda with a view of the sea (and the whales)."


"Wonderful!"

(United Kingdom) Lynda Swift | 12 October 2008

"We stayed for one night in a ocean view bedroom.

We had visited Hermanus on a previous visit to the Western Cape, but this trip we wanted to see the whales and we were not disappointed. We had breakfast overlooking the bay and watching two whales swimming. "


"Nice Stay"

"Sehr schöne Aussicht aus der Honeymoon-Suite auf die Bucht. Gutes Frühstück. Hotel ist nur durch eine ruhige Strasse vom Meer getrennt. Unbedingt ein Zimmer mit Meerblick im ersten Stock buchen. Sichere Umgebung, in Spazierdistanz zu Restaurants.

Very nice view from the honeymoon suite on the bay. Good breakfast. Hotel is just across a quiet road from the sea. Get a room with a sea view on the first floor book. Safe environment in walking distance to restaurants.

"One of the best 'homes away from home' we stayed at. We really enjoyed it, were sorry to leave after only one night: it deserved a longer stay. Relaxing atmosphere, beautiful spot, right overlooking the ocean, walking areas along the coast. Great attention to details and very good taste in choosing furniture and disposition of rooms. Marvellous breakfast, nicely presented. Pleasant and helpful people, very kind and discrete, giving us a good suggestion on where to eat - a restaurant where we had a very fine dinner."

"Possibly the best guest house of our entire trip to SA. We had Room no. 1 which was perfect. Huge room with separate dressing room, large bathroom, lounge area and fantastic views from within the bedroom and out on the private balcony. Everything was exceptionally clean with a lot of attention to detail, lovely decorations and furnishings and some nice extra touches. The breakfast was beautifully presented and very well cooked. The manager runs the whole place with great efficiency, helpfulness and enthusiasm.
We would strongly recommend this place and in particular Room no. 1. . - Other rooms are not as big as Room 1 but beautifully furnished.

"Excellent service..."

(United Kingdom) Mr Sangster | 27 October 2008

"Only stayed for a night in the 'honeymoon suite' which was lovely - but more importantly was the help, advice and general service we received. Stunning views, relaxed and friendly staff. I'd recommend it to anyone."


"endenfontaine"

(Netherlands) Mrs van den enden | 17 October 2007

"Great room; never been in such a large and well decorated one! Warm welcome! We could see the whales passing by when we were sitting on the couch. That is an extraordinary experience.."

"The establishment was very well maintained and clean to a fault. The service and staff were excellent without being overbearing and in-your-face which made for a very relaxing and welcoming home from home atmosphere. The units were beautifully furnished and decorated.

The little personal touches (chocolate with the daily weather report, tea biscuits every morning, personal breakfast orders taken the day before - and served nice & warm on the day and the owner / manager personally greeting her guests at breakfast) have all made the stay that much more enjoyable.

The only criticism we have is that it does not appear as if the towels were changed daily. Some appeared to be previously used without being washed.

We will have no hesitation at all of staying at this establishment again as well as encouraging family and friends to book at La Fontaine."

"This lovely establishment has a perfect setting, right on the edge of the cliff, which enables all the residents to watch the whales whilst taking a good breakfast on the open veranda. The breakfast works well as you are given a wide range of foods to choose from the day before along with your preferred timing.

The lounge area and inside dining areas were wonderfully decorated, as were the bedrooms. We had the family suite of two bedrooms with a huge ensuite between to share, which gave us added privacy and space.

Elna is a thoughtful and helpful hostess, making people feel comfortable and at ease in her home. She offered good advice about local attractions, actually making telephone calls to aid arrangements.

I would definitely recommend a stay here- and my children can vouch for the pool!
