We only stayed one night, but would have been very happy to stay longer. Gillian wasn't there for our visit, but sister Lesley was a fabulous, attentive host. All three rooms were equally comfortable with high quality linens and bath products. The breakfast was both beautiful and delicious.

Very friendly, flexible people. We arrived late and had to leave early and it was no problem; we were on a golf tour and had an early tee-off but despite it being a weekend, the hostess got up extra early and still laid on a lovely breakfast for us. Very pleasant accommodation with lovely artwork. Significantly exceeded expectations. Would definitely... More

This is the second time that I have visited this lovely guesthouse and I can highly recommend it. The rooms were comfy and there are beautiful views but it was the great service that I appreciated - nothing was too much trouble. Somebody extra for breakfast?-No problem for Gillian. Need a room to work in- no problem. Tea during the... More

Bedroom was clean and spacious with lovely soft pillows and quality duvet. Breakfast was well catered and delicious fruit salad. Dont forgot to ask for rusks with year tea, very tasty! The steep hill up to the guest house can be a bit of a challenge, but worth it

Stayed here on the first night of our first trip to South Africa. The Guest House is a few minutes drive from Simon's Town itself, located on the side of a fairly steep hill. While you can see Simon's Town from the balcony it was too far to walk to. Parking was in a bay opposite the Guest House. This... More

Lovely views, comfy rooms with luxurious bathrooms, a delicious full breakfast. No request is too much trouble: laundry, baby bottle sterilisation, nappy disposal, wine glasses, endless family photos, special dietary requirements. Loved it here.

We only stayed at Moonglow one night, but were pleasantly surprised by the excellent service, the rooms are very nice, with stunning views and the beds were extremely comfortable. The breakfast was very tasty and served with with lots of love and care. We will definitely go back next time we are around the corner. Very very nice!

We stayed at Moonglow for two nights. Our stay was WOW. Management was very friendly, the view to die for. We saw a beautiful sunrise and an even more stunning full moon rise and saw why the guesthouse is called Moonglow. Best accomadate on our travels. Will definitely go back there in the future. Thank you Moonglow xx

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in March for a wedding! The room was perfect with a spectacular view over the bay. Gillian welcomes you like family, and the breakfast was very tasty. No issues about coming in late, and was very quite and peaceful. Will definitely go back!

This place might be a bit out of the way, but it's worth staying here. Gillian is a 1st Class host. The rooms are decorated and cleaned with love. There are lots of communal areas. The b'fast was outstanding and nothing was too much trouble for her. She is genuinely interested in everything you have done and are doing. I... More
