Enchantingly elegant guesthouse. Beautiful, spacious feel to the rooms, and a lovely array of breakfasts to choose from in the morning, all the way from healthy to indulgent choices. The hospitality was excellent.

Nice spacious rooms, very tastefully decorated, great views, excellent service, great breakfast. One could not ask for a better guest house. The house is on top of a hill with a great view. Once I got directions it was an easy walk to town. When I did not want to walk the staff called me a taxi.

Amazing Guest House in the quaint village of Simons Town. Amazing staff members who are very friendly and helpful and nothing is too much for them. The executive room we stayed in was clean, nicely decorated and very comfortable and the view from the bacony is breathtaking. A delicious breakfast awaited us every morning. Can highly recommend them!

the only problem we had with the room was that it was part of a connected family room and the people next door came home at approx 11.30 and proceeded to talk loudly and put the TV on and then again at 6.00 the next morning. Sleep was impossible then.

We had a wonderful stay over a chilly weekend. The view from our room was amazing and the room itself was comfortable and warm. The staff are friendly, polite and efficient and the service on a whole was outstanding. A fire was lit in the lounge every evening which was lovely. The breakfast deserves a mention on it's own, an... More

I stayed in the "honeymoon" room, it is very big and nice big bath & shower. The room also has balcony that you can sit on ( for smokers I would recommend this room) no smoking in the room, but outside. View from the room is spectacular!! Room has microwave oven, bar fridge and kettle. Free WIFI in the B&B.... More

A lovely stay! Cozy rooms and tasty food. The staff really went out of their way to help us out-preparing continental breakfast before our Shark tour, arranging for transportation to see the sights, recommending local places to visit, even ordering pizza for us on a night in. The common areas are clean and comfy, with a nice fireplace. Free WiFI,... More
