After a full day cycling what a fantastic spot to spend the night! The room opened onto a communal balcony which was great for drinks with friends before dinner and a fabulous view of the bay. The breakfast next day was first class and service from the owner and her colleague were friendly and nothing was too much trouble. It... More

We booked two rooms for two nights and we couldn't have been happier. From the moment we arrived, we were not only made to feel like valued guests but also "old friends." We were greeted by two precious doggies and the owner, Gillian and after being shown to our rooms, we were asked to join her for a welcome drink... More

I spent two nights at Moonglow during February 2014. The rooms are excellent, well appointed and comfortable. The bathroom was excellent. The view was absolutely spectacular. From the balcony you can see most of False Bay and all of Simons Bay and the harbour and town of Simonstown. Breakfast was excellent and everybody was friendly and helpful. I will be... More

We, two friends from the UK, and my husband and I stayed here for four nights.As we live in the heat of the winelands it was wonderful to stay in Glencairn where it seems the wind blows most of the time keeping it cool. The guesthouse was all we wished for - near Groot Constantia, Kirstenbosch, Boulders, Hout Bay and... More

What a stunning place. Beautiful view of False Bay and very relaxing. We felt very welcome and the room was clean, bathroom lovely. The balcony was a lovely extra and we had spent a wonderful evening enjoying the views. Breakfast the next morning were very good and the host was very kind and we felt so at home.

We loved staying here. The rooms were great value for money, especially the ones with a balcony. The beds were really comfortable with crisp linen, stunning views, great hospitality and breakfast. Highly recommend. Very clean and well looked after. Great to have a fridge in the room too! And and wonderful bathroom!

We stayed there just for one night but nevertheless felt very much welcomed and at home. The room was very nice with a breathtaking view of False Bay. The bathroom and shower was also something special. But the best was the host and her very welcoming attitude. We enjoyed a good glass of wine with her at night and had... More

Unfortunately, we were at this super cute GH for less than 24 hours and wished we had more time! The owners are wonderful, very welcoming! Nice views and lovely BIG breakfast! Would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone in the area!

Best place to stay, not only stunning beauty but also close to Cape town as well as Cape Point. We loved it! Gillian many many thanks to you! Extremely clean and excellent hospitality. Just felt home away from home. Dog and the parrot are bonus! Also very close by (just down the hill) is a wonderful restaurant.
