Only spent 2 nights. Very clean and comfortable. Just missed the fireplace, especially during the 2hr load shedding. But I will definitely recommend Dovecote.

We have stayed at many holiday places in the past and this by far exceeds anywhere else we have stayed. The effort that Pam goes to in order to make people feel welcome is just extraordinary. We will definitely be visiting Dovecote Cottage again.

We had a very comfortable autumn stay of 4 full days. Very friendly and helpful stay. Ideally located and easy to get around in Hermanus. Would love to go again.

We received a warm welcome from Pam and we were really pleased with the cottage and its close proximity to the Cliff walking paths and the Town. Everything that we needed was provided and it was lovely and private. It was great for our Border Collie Sam and we explored everywhere on foot. We found Hermanus very dog-friendly and I would recommend it as a great get away with your dog.

We had a wonderful 19 night stay. The cottage is well equiped and beautifully clean. Bruce and Pam made us feel very welcome and always helpful and charming. The situation is perfect to walk along the cliff path, walk to shops and restaurants. We would definitely go back, highly recommended!! Thank you Pam and Bruce.
