The hotel is a quick drive from the quaint Simon's Town main street and a great jumping off point to explore the Cape Peninsula. The staff was super friendly and provided great recommendations for local restaurants and tips for traveling around the area. Our room was excellent with the most stunning feature being the amazing view of the ocean. Would... More

This was our third stay in three years and, as always, Amanda and Susie were fantastic hosts. The exceptional service started two months before arrival as they advised of the change of date of a local event and offered to change our booking to suit. Over the past few years we've watched the family grow up and now feel like... More

We only stayed here 1 night in early Jan. Although we did not have a car, I would definitely recommend a car for stays of longer than 1 night, as this is not actually in Simons Town, but just up the hill from Glencairn railway station (10 minute uphill walk). The nearby Glencairn beach is beautiful (10 min walk), although... More

Stayed there 6 nights. Room was clean and quiet. Very friendly staff, got many good tips what to do and see. Location is good especially if you have car. Breakfast is excellent, not many options, but everything they have is good. Still missing those great omelets!

We stayed for 10 days in December. Susie is very friendly and chatty and guaranteed to rise a smile over breakfast. Our room was very clean and comfortable thanks to Wonderful. I think our room was Shawu, Internet access was good, perhaps could have done with some more variety on the TV channels. The views out over the bay were... More

The location, room and food were simply fantastic. The view from any room is of False Bay between Simons Town harbor and Fish Hoek. The hills are brutal, so I would recommend driving to even local destinations... But if you like a climb, feel free to hike those hills (I did, but with the wind and grade of those hills... More

After visiting in 2013, I returned this week and found that it was just as inviting and tranquil as I had remembered. Susie was on hand throughout my stay and was so friendly and welcoming. I cannot recommend a visit here highly enough. I'm very much hoping to be able to come back next year :-)
