Parking a bit difficult if many guests. A bit to walk to the nearest restaurant. Beatiful views. Very quiet. Maybe not so much for children if theywant activities at or near by their hotel. Very, very beautiful rooms and bathrooms.

The room we had was amazing, one side looked to the ocean and the other side looked into the wilderness area. Our ocean side deck was totally private... More

We spent 3 nights here towards the end of February. The greeting on arrival was warm and friendly and we were immediately taken to our room. It was one of the 2 front ones with a balcony with unbelievable views over Simon's Town and False Bay. The room was very spacious and had high quality fixtures and fittings. The bathroom... More

We were staying in the honeymoon suite which had a separate balcony with an amazing view. Our stay was made very comfortable by our hospitable host; Darwin. The property is located right at the foothill of the mountain and you can take a hike by going on a trail that leads from the property. It is centrally located within Simon's... More

Nice location, nice Management and very nicy people. We visit the Magellan´s Passage on our next South Africa trip. We made a mistake by the booking and the management was very helpful and polite. Near by boulders beach a very good location to visit the penguins, Cape Point or Kalk Bay.
