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

Weather permitting, a hearty delicious full English breakfast, using only fresh ingredients from the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, is served on the patio under an ancient oak tree where you can enjoy the beautiful mountain view (and Suzanne's famous to-die-for cooking).
