This was my 2nd stay at the Cheriton. This time I booked for myself and safari guests. The house and rooms are fun, comfortable, and work very well for people sightseeing and shark diving. The hosts Dirk and Denise are wonderful as hosts and companions. The breakfast is huge and delicious and you can not beat the decor and views... More

We recently spent 2 nights at the Cheriton. We are a family of 3 and were given 2 spotlessly clean and comfortable rooms. The honor pub, and yes, it is a real pub, was a lovely place to relax and reflect on the day. Dirk and Denise were extremely helpful, providing area information and finding us a nice place to...

This great b&b has some wonderful unusual touches - the impossibly well stocked mini pub honesty bar and the naval memorabilia, collections of military hats and cameras and whatever else you might stumble across. Not only that but the hosts have thought of everything a guest could need and more - from sherry to plug adapters! The breakfast was fabulous... More

Stayed 2 nights in the Emily Hobhouse room - absolutely fantastic, joined to the honesty bar, which has every possible drink at very good prices! The bar area is full of naval memorabila and you could easily spend a day looking through everything! The hosts were very friendly, hospitable and helpful - only a short walk to Boulders Beach.

My husband and I felt the need to get away for a weekend to revitalise our minds and bodies but didn't want to travel very far. Having done some internet research, we came across Cheriton Guest House in Simonstown. Simonstown held special memories for my husband, as he had spent his military service there whilst in the navy. From the... More

Interesting quirky B&B that is over priced and with an average breakfast. If u need to stay a few days in Simon's Town and would like a pool and a bar and a lounge area then this may be for you; but the service is ok, the breakfast v average. Its not a hotel and therefore needs to make sure... More
