We enjoyed the personal touch, which makes it a fun and welcoming B&B. Very friendly owners who obviously care a lot for the place. The rooms are not fancy but clean and full of character and attention to detail. Good English breakfast cooked to order. Small things like the self-service bar, game room and DVD library are nice extras. Only... More

When visiting Cape Point, this is definitively the place you want to stay. It is very close to Boulders Beach. We've rented mountainbikes, to go to Cape point. An amazing trip and the best service from the hotel. They offer a backpack and make sure you have some cool water on the bicycle.

Stayed here for 5 nights. The pictures on the hotel website say it all. Absolutely crammed with naval memorabilia, which gives the place a real charm. Room was great: clean, comfortable and quiet. The Cheriton is a (safe) walk back from the center of Simon's Town at night, albeit up a steep incline for the final part. There are a... More

We stayed at the Cheriton for 5 nights in early February and wish it could have been longer. Denise and Dirk really care about what they do and boy does it show. From the fantastic array of naval memorabilia to the wonderful breakfasts overlooking the ocean, this place is very special. Spotlessly clean room, excellent shower and everything you could... More

tried to book into this wonderful place last week. Sadly it was full and it took the edge of my visit. Last visited it in November when it was quieter but no less fun. Had some nice times with the owners /staff. As always spotlessly clean; great food and nothing is ever too much trouble. I can see why it... More

The only disappointment I feel is to be leaving this place after only three nights. The accommodation is excellent and the hosts are outstanding. The rooms are full of character and not your standard sterile hotel room, also clean and spacious. The cooked breakfast will set you up for the day! The penguin colony is just a short pleasant walk... More

A big thank you to Dirk and Denise who does a splendid job in running this adourable guesthouse. After a couple of days at Cheriton you almost feel like you are part of the "Cheriton family". If you are looking for a homely place - stay here!
