Schulphoek Seafront Guest House

Situated at the beautifully protected sanctuary of Schulphoek Bay with spectacular uninterrupted sea views, Schulphoek Guest House is an ideal spot to see the Southern Right Whales from June to November. The stylish 5* boutique hotel is just a few minutes drive from the vibrant town of Hermanus.

Considered the start of the extended Garden Route, Hermanus  makes an ideal stop over at anytime of the year. Outside of the whale watching season there is plenty to do and see, including wine tasting on the Hermanus Wine Route, boat trips to Dyer Island to see the Cape Fur Seal colony and other marine mammals and birds.

For anyone contemplating South Africa golf holidays, on the Garden Route, Schulphoek  is a great place to stop for a couple of nights to play the nearby Arabella and Hermanus Golf Club courses.

Located 5km outside central Hermanus, this stylish, 5* property, offers a tranquil retreat and a top quality restaurant. There is a cliff top path way that stretches along the coast offering a refreshing stroll and an excellent vantage point for spotting the whales. Schulphoek is the local name of a type of shell, which can be found on the nearby beaches.

Rooms at Schulphoek
There are 15 rooms available, all en suite with air conditioning. 9 of the rooms are on the ground floor overlooking the courtyard garden and 5 superior rooms which are sea facing, are on the first floor of the main building. These Superior rooms are a particular favourite for honeymoon holidays and have panoramic sliding doors with spectacular sea views.

Schulphoek is renown for its excellent food with fresh herbs and vegetables grown in the potager. Guests are invited to dine on their first evening at the large social table along with the other guests. It is a great way to meet other people and share travel tips, and is a high light of some of our guest’s holiday.

Seafood and venison are 2 of the specialities on offer, but the chef is happy to create a menu to suit you. Meals are complemented with a collection of over 12,000 bottles of wine which are available for guests to choose from. We highly recommend something from the local Hermanus Wine Valley.

There is a small but welcome swimming pool and massages can be arranged with prior warning.

In our opinion: This wonderful guest house offers good value accommodation, great views and fabulous food. However it is 5km outside of the town of Hermanus, so be prepared to drive if you want to visit the town of an evening. It is possible to walk the cliff path into town but you may not want to walk back again!
