Many of the holiday homes in Hermanus have been passed from generation to generation and a holiday in Hermanus is particularly special when you stay in one of these gracious homes that are filled with a host of memories of fun, sun, sea, sand, whales, laughter, fireside evenings, family and friends.

Pat's Place, one of the original Hermanus holiday guest houses, has belonged to the Clark family for three generations and they have been sharing their much loved home with visitors for the past 20 years. While the décor and facilities may have changed over the years with a splash of modern style and comfort, the ambience and hospitality is just as it has always been warm, relaxed, light hearted and friendly.

In Room Facilities:

Suzanne and Nicholas aim to spoil you in uncluttered luxury. At Pat's Place you'll find accommodation with comfort, privacy and space. All rooms are en-suite with the choice of a bath and shower; the beds are extra length with luxurious, crisp white percale cotton linen and fluffy, extra large towels.

Area Information:

Hermanus is a seaside village on the Cape south coast of South Africa that has been a holiday destination since its inception. Holidays are Hermanus' raison d'être. It has been one of South Africa?s best-loved holiday spots for over 100 years and is known as "the Riviera of the South" and "the best land-based whale watching spot in the world".

Property Facilities:

To top it all Pat's Place has a glorious private swimming pool set in an indescribably luscious garden where you can absorb the tranquillity and champagne air without moving a muscle!


The guest house is conveniently situated a stones throw from the middle of the 12km Cliff Path which is surrounded by fynbos and provides a multitude of whale watching spots. The Hermanus Golf Course, shops, beauty salon and Hermanus Health & Fitness (a gym with sauna and sunbeds) are almost on the doorstep and the village centre within easy walking distance.

The five of us stayed there a couple of days last July in the self-catering cottage with 3 bedrooms. Great 'braaiplek' and wrap-around 'stoep' ;-)
Kitchen with everything you need and a nice fireplace in the sitting room.
Supermarket and liquor store around the corner ;-)
Nice and quiet despite being on the main road. Cross the street to walk along the cliff-path to the old harbour.

The accommodation is well appointed, tastefully decorated and very clean. This is the fourth time I have stayed at Pat's Place and Suzanne remains the most friendly and accommodating host that I have encountered in thirty years of travel.

What a wonderful find. So different from the glitz of an over-priced, impersonal hotel, Pat's Place really felt like home. Five crazy girls on a golf holiday, we had the place to ourselves so could really unwind and relax, or party, without fear of disturbing others. We had a delicious cooked breakfast every morning and, thanks to Suzanne's hospitality, it all felt so incredibly comfortable we didn't want to leave. The location is easy walking distance to/from town and if you take the coastal path, you'll see spectacular homes and incredible views. If you're looking for somewhere affordable that feels like home, this is it.

Really enjoyed staying at Pat's. Was catching up with friends, who happened to live just round the corner. Room was spacious and airy, with good bathroom and outdoor patio with showers. Very clean and comfy beds. Lovely garden with good size secluded pool Good location, very close to centre of town and the coast. Delicious breakfast. Friendly host and staff. Would highly recommend and hope to be back!

This is a lovely B&B with a great host Suzanne. It's like being at home. Suzanne makes a fabulous breakfast, what a great way to start the day. Hermanus certainly offers enough to do and see. There are some good eateries within walking distance and great drives around the coast or to the wine area. The rooms are all very comfortable, each one tastefully decorated. There is a nice shady garden and great pool area. I would definitely recommend this place. Thanks Suzanne for making our stay special.

The whole team gave us an amazing welcome! Discreet but present! Suzanne's suggestions were great! The place is peaceful and relaxing. Some of the Equipment is a bit "tired", but in no means does this influence the charm and efficiency of the place! We had a most fantastic time! I really recommend Pat's Place! Ideal for a family or friends reunion! Thank you Suzanne!
