Wonderful location with sea view, spacey and neat rooms and great and relaxing and rich breakfast. Very friendly service and hospitality, Pre-Payment procedures a bit bureaucratic. Highly recommended.

We had a lovely 2 night stay and were made to feel at home. The breakfasts were homely with that personal touch. The view from the property over the ocean is breath taking. We can highly recommend Simonstown Guesthouse to everyone. Thank you Steve, Amanda and Lynn for a wonderful time.

We stayed here at the end of our Honeymoon before heading back home to the USA. My only complaint about our time at Simonstown Guest House is that we only stayed for one night! This place is seriously perfect. It has a beautiful, modern design, and the rooms are spacious with breathtaking views. Great decor as well, with wonderful photographs... More

The rooms are clean and have amazing views, the location is perfect to discover both cape Town, Cape Point and Boulders Beach, but most of all the service was incredible and we felt really at home.

We had the unequalled pleasure of enjoying a weekend at this impeccably styled guesthouse. With elevator access, level floors and spacious rooms, my wheelchair-bound son’s movements throughout the guesthouse were effortless. Our room was luxurious and inviting, with the most exquisite view from our bed of the early morning sun shimmering across a vast blue ocean. Lynn’s warmth and hospitality... More

The guesthouse is modern and immaculately maintained. Our room was great and we enjoyed the view. Breakfast was very good. Lynn was wonderfully helpful - she was able to check us in early and was a great help in assisting with organizing our activities in the area - making suggestions on where to eat and what to do. Thanks Lynn!
