This guest house is wonderful. My family recently stayed in two rooms here, both were immaculate and the beds were comfortable. The rooms have a great ocean view and are beautifully decorated. A wide variety of delicious food was served for breakfast. And the complimentary wifi internet worked well. I highly recommend this guest house!

We spent 4 nights at Simons Town Guest House. From the moment we arrived we felt special and cared for by the incredibly helpful and friendly staff. They made us feel relaxed and pampered before and after our big day and no request was ever too much trouble for them! The views were spectacular and what was a real novelty... More

We found this guest house through Trip Advisor and were BEYOND happy with it! The room was super spacious, clean, comfortable, and had an amazing view. Amanda, the owner, was super helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. She tried so hard to organize a Great White dive trip for us, but the weather made it difficult. When... More

We had a lovely room with an absolutely magnificent view over the Indian Ocean for our three day stay.There are loads of things to do from Cape Point to Cape Town via the penguin colony at Boulders, which adjoins Simon's Town. Incredibly helpful owner and staff who, apart from booking decent restaurants, also arranged a visit for us to Cecil... More

We were originally recommended to try another Guest House in Simons Town; that proved to be full and they advised us to speak to Amanda at the Simonstown Guest House, this was very good advice. We only spent one night here as a stop off on our way from Cape Town, down to Cape Point and from there back up... More

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at Simonstown Guest House for three nights on our most recent visit to Cape Town. Simonstown is a different animal from our usual haunts around Camps Bay or downtown Cape Town. Quiet, a bit windy and with limited dining options, still it's an area we really enjoy and the nighttime quiet... More

We spend two days in this guesthouse that you can compare with a 4/5 star hotel. Large, good beds, excellent free wifi in your room and a spectacular view. Is situated a 5 min drive from the center of Simons Town and up on a hill so a car is very useful if you are going to stay here.

Luxurious and spacious rooms with see view. Very good breakfast. Very helpful staff, specially Lynn :) The guesthouse is located between Simons Town and Fish Hoak, very good starting point to visit the Cape of good Hope or the penguins at Boulders.

Me and my husband stayed in Simons Town Guest House in February and we were looking for a quiet place but not far away by car from lots of good restaurants and tourist attractions. We had an amazing stay at Simons Town Guest House. The drive to the house is itself exciting. The house is on a hill and you... More

We stayed here over 2 years ago so I am a little late in this review but the visit was so wonderful I still think about it. There was not a thing that Amanda did not take care of for us. She has a truly beautiful property with views that are outstanding but she is what makes the place outstanding.... More
