A very comfortable 3 days last weekend. extremely welcoming hosts. The rooms are super clean. The "made to order " special that my daughter wanted is just an indication of the small touches that go a long way. Will definitively be back

10/10 Exceptional

The welcome from owners Ottie and Nikki was warm and full of offers to help and advise in any way. During our ten day stay, mainly to meet family nearby and deal with some issues following an untimely bereavement, our hosts were always kind and made us feel fully at home when we were at Penguino. Their staff were also warm and very efficient. And their dogs were lovely too!! Penguino is just off the amazing Hermanus cliff walk and is in easy walking distance of the town's plentiful shops and restaurants. It is a good base for both the town and the surrounding coast, beaches and nearby wine area.
