Enjoyed an incredible stay at the Simonstown guesthouse where we were welcomed by the lovely owners Steve and Amanda.. The rooms were immaculate, the views in the morning watching the sunrise over the false bay coastline, magical. A stroll down the beach is a must ..but after eating their delicious breakfast be warned you might be rolling down the hill!!

This was the second time we stayed here. Everything was great, like last time. Thanks Steve and Amanda -- we had a superb stay. The additional parking you've added makes life much easier for all your guests.

We recently spent a weekend at the simonstown guesthouse for a wedding in Kalk Bay. The location and sweeping ocean views across false bay are superb, the staff were friendly and attentive, and our Sunday morning breakfast was absolutely delicious. We recommend this guesthouse as the perfect spot from which to explore the southern peninsula.

Very comfortable rooms and great staff. It is quite a steep ride to the property. Location is actually north of simon's town but close to good restaurants and sites. Rooms are large except the bathrooms which are small. I would recommend if in the area. Breakfast was very good as well.

We were happily surprised with the Guesthouse. Beautiful designed rooms. Spectacular views, especially from room no. 5 (corner room). The personal touch of the staff and owner Amanda made us to extend our stay for another day. A place to remember and to come back to.

I have stayed in many hotels and guest houses in the past and I can honesty say that this was one of the best. Service, comfort and view, all outstanding. Lyn, the manageress served a fantastic breakfast with a personal touch. Alan

Great place to be. The roads are a bit steep to go there but that's no problem. Nice view over the bay. Rooms are very modern and clean. Disadvantage is that you need a car to see the pinguins and if you want to go to a restaurant.
