Staying a week at the moon glow was just a wonderful experience. The facility, the Host, the location, everything was tip top. The "home" is spacious very well furnished and clean, the beds are just great and breakfast outstanding. The sea view is breathtaking and we have been treated like royalty all the way. Additionally, glencairn is ideally situated for... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our four night stay, it was like being home away from home! Everything from the warm welcome, comfortable beds, sea views, scrumptious breakfasts and superb service certainly made our stay at Moonglow so worthwhile. This homely and professionally run B&B is situated very close to lovely beaches, popular landmarks and fine restaurants. Thank you Gillian, Glynn and... More

Quality bedding says everything about a venue. That is the sign of a caring host who places her guests first. We felt welcome from the first moment we arrived and met with friendly little Thandi (the dog). This is a very homely B&B with a comfortable lounge and reading room. Wifi came in handy to catch up on what's happening... More

I stayed just one night in December and found Moonglow to be a superior bed and breakfast. Lovely accommodation, best view, sumptuous breakfast, extremely friendly, warm and helpful hosts who couldn't do enough for their guests. It's very close to the lovely sandy beach and warm warm-water bay of Fish Hoek, and just minutes away from Simon's Town, which has... More

I wished we could have stayed longer! From the moment you step in the door, you get the feeling of a very professionally run place, yet the warmth, comfort and welcome of a home. The rooms have thoughtful touches, and nothing is too much trouble if you need anything. We had a sea facing room - the views are fantastic.... More

Absolutely wonderful stay, Extremely friendly staff and everything is clean, well maintained and very well managed . The view from the beautiful deck is absolutely gorgeous, we spotted Dolphins when we were there in December 2014. :) Staying in Simon's Town is definitely a must, it is very central to all surrounding areas - Cape Point, V&A , Boulders Bay,...

We stayed two nights during our recent trip to the Western Cape. Moonglow is an excellent pick to stay at False Bay, beautiful views, very nice rooms and extremely welcoming hosts. It is indeed run like a real guest house, you immediately feel welcome and "part of the family". It is the perfect base to explore the cape and the... More

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
