Everything was just perfect. Would absolutely recommend Simonstown Guest House. Safe secure location and close to most amenities. We had a good ocean view from our room and one of the best beds ever slept on.

My second stay here and will always be my first choice when visiting the Western Cape region. Perfect in every way; hospitality, ambience, comfort, relaxation, views, food. The great outdoors is on the door step for exploring as well as all the nearby and short hops to a great selction of restaurants.
