We were lucky enough to stay at Moonglow at the beginning of January this year. Gillian and her family were very friendly and accommodating, which made our stay extra special. The guest house is beautifully decorated and has the most stunning views. Breakfast was outstanding and we even got a take away breakfast the one morning as we were running... More

Such a gem; perfect location and a great terasse with fantastic views of the ocean and mountains close by! The interior is cozy and classic at the same time, really nice rooms and bathrooms with an eye for details. Lovely owners and friendly staff! Excellent breakfast! Highly recommended!

The guest house was delightfully characterful and the views from the balcony fantastic. Moonglow is a great base from which to explore Simon's Town, Boulders... More

Stayed here as part of a Group tour and we could not have asked for anything better. Friendly welcome, hot showers and a great breakfast to set us up for the day. Others in the group were very grateful for the bar area complete with TV to watch the football!

Familiar, warm, pleasant, comfortable, perfect service, ready to help. A very quiet house where you can relax. The beds are comfortable. Some rooms have seaview with a fantastic porch in front of the room. Commendable!

I stayed here as part of a cycling holiday in the Western Cape. After a long day in the saddle, we had a warm welcome at Moonglow. Rooms are well appointed and the views across the bay are tremendous. Communal areas are really cosy with a nice lounge and well stocked bar. It's a quiet spot but the pub down... More

We were travelling around but this guesthouse won the prize for the best breakfast. It owner was most hospitable and it was just somebody's home. Everything in the house was very good quality. It is very generous of the family to open up their house to guests.
