Simonstown Guest House certainly belongs to the Top Liga on the Cape Peninsula. To us it is a heavenly place, peacefully located in a residential area. The views across False Bay are spectacular. The rooms are simply beautiful and carry each amazing photos of African wildlife, all taken by your host, Amanda. Along with Lynn's refreshing care, you get the... More

Beautiful views. I am handicapped and every effort was made to make me happy, like throwing husband out of garage because of steep hill. Food excellent. They set up shark cage dive that was excellent even though I had to get up at 3am. Make sure you get GPS at the airport. Only suggestions are soft music in breakfast room... More

I cannot recommend this guest house HIGHLY enough! Location - on the side of a craggy, rocky hill overlooking False Bay. Very picturesque. Access and parking is a little tight as the guest house is built on the side of a steep hill. Rooms were immaculate. Windows were sparkling clean which isn't easy considering the salt spray continuously blowing in.... More

Friendly, spotless, beautifully decorated and great breakfast. Fantastic views from its hillside position. Good location for Cape Point, Kalk Bay, Boulders Beach with its Penguins and of course Simonstown itself.

My second week-long stay at Simon's Town B&B and just as enjoyable as the first. The rooms are immaculate, the breakfasts couldn't be bettered and Lynne and Amanda are the friendliest hosts one could wish for. The location is an ideal starting point for visiting all the regular sites in the Peninsula area and has the added advantage of being... More

Beautiful place with immaculate and well presented facilities. Rooms have views across the bay. Wonderful showers with gel and shampoo provided. Incredibly comfortable beds especially for those crashing out after the overnight flight from London. Breakfasts cooked to order. A must for those exploring the Cape. Great boat trips go from Simonstown harbour for birding or fishing, going about 20... More
