Simon's Town guest house is just fantastic, wonderfully located for the coast of the Cape Peninsula and Cape Point. The beautiful modern building is built into a steep hillside. Our large room had an all glass wall facing the bay maybe 60 feet above the road, making for wonderful views. There is an elevator for luggage. Breakfast was great, in... More

Amanda was so welcoming on our arrival and got us settled in quickly. Wonderful views from the floor to ceiling windows that each luxury suite has. Very helpful with restaurants to visit, especially the Harbour House in Kalk Bay. When in the neighbourhood again we would certainly try and stay here again. You definitely need a car to get up...

I had a great time at Simon's Town Guest House and even though I didn't share any meal in the dining room (I was always back late and out early each of the three nights I was there) I felt well cared for with take-away breakfasts packed for me. When we finally met, my hosts, Amanda and Lyn were very... More

My husband and I had a wonderful weekend break at this fabulous guest house in Cairnside. Lynne made us feel so welcome and she also cooked superb breakfasts. She was the perfect host. The rooms have beautiful sea views. A perfect place to relax and unwind.

I would say THE BEST in Cape Town ever experienced. Everything from view, to quality was just a wowzer. The hosts, Steven and Amanda Conradie, was very friendly and helpful in all our needs. The price was good for what B&B had to offer, and you immediately feel at home. The breakfast buffet had a wide selection and the food... More

We stayed for four nights at this wonderful B&B. The room was perfect - views of False Bay excellent. Superb breakfast. Lynn and Amanda were exceptionally helpful and gave us lots of information about the area. I was recovering from a hip replacement so having a lift to the rooms was extremely useful. Excellent all round. Highly recommended.

The guesthouse is stunning and relaxing with beautiful views. Staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. Both Simons Town and Kalk Bay are easy drives and well worth a visit. Breakfast was delicious. Can't rate this place highly enough.

Stayed 3 nights in a lovely big well equiped room, which had amazing view over the ocean. Breakfast was one of the best with plenty of choice and good quality food. Service from manager was amazing as she went the extra mile on everything from organizing trips and car hire, advising on location of services and attractions, even down to... More
