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

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.
