Had a wonderful overnight stay at the Simonstown Guest House in mid-July which allowed us to pick up a guest from the US at the airport late in the evening and get an early morning start to visit the penguins at Boulders and still make a noon meeting at the US Consulate in Cape Town. Very friendly host/owners and staff,... More

We arrived past midnight and had to wake... More

In June 2015, my girlfriend and I were in the mood for an impromptu holiday of about 3 nights. While on an earlier business trip, I stayed at Simon's Town Guest House, and this time I just knew where to go. We were not disappointed at all. Fortunately for us, our stay was during full moon which meant that we... More

We stayed only one night and the weather was awful but the very warm welcome, help with directions and ideas for a rainy day and wonderful breakfast made it an excellent stay. Very comfortable room with fun decor and excellent views from big windows.

Our room was beautiful and had everything we could need, with a view of the sea. The breakfast was excellent and the staff were very welcoming. Perfect place to stay to break up the journey and enjoy the scenery

The room was situated with a great view of the ocean. The room was spacious and the bed was really comfortable. We were just down the road from the African penguins. The owner and the staff were very friendly and helpful in all respects.

Enjoyed an incredible stay at the Simonstown guesthouse where we were welcomed by the lovely owners Steve and Amanda.. The rooms were immaculate, the views in the morning watching the sunrise over the false bay coastline, magical. A stroll down the beach is a must ..but after eating their delicious breakfast be warned you might be rolling down the hill!!

This was the second time we stayed here. Everything was great, like last time. Thanks Steve and Amanda -- we had a superb stay. The additional parking you've added makes life much easier for all your guests.
