We stayed for 3 nights at the beginning of our trip and what a wonderful place to recover from our 38 hours in transit! Of course the view is amazing and we were happy to just sit on the balcony and soak it up, but the real pleasure was the warmth and welcome of the hosts. Gillian, thank you so... More

Not the easiest place to find, but if you follow the well placed signs and wind your way up the hill, suddenly you find yourself with a lovely view and a cozy room. I had a room without a balcony, but still a bit of an ocean view. But the big balconies on both floors were available and I enjoyed... More

We spent 2 nights at Moonglow in February 2015 as part of a pre-wedding (not mine) celebration. While most of the other wedding guests opted to stay in Constantia, good friends told us about what a gem Moonglow was. Living in landlocked Pretoria, we chose Moonglow with our friends. Perched up high on a hill overlooking the water, Moonglow's setting... More

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,...
