We stay in many hotels across the world and must say this was a wonderful find, the room was extremely comfortable with a view of the Ocean from one window and the mountains from another . It's perfect location for exploring the... More

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.

From start to finish our stay was 5 start. Darwin and James came out to welcome us as we arrived in the car and that level of attention and care continued right though our stay. We had a lovely evening meal prepared by Darwin on one of the nights which I would highly recommend. The food was delicious and very... More

I think my parting comment in the guest book says it all..."I want to live here!" From the moment we arrived until the moment we left our stay was amazing. We were made to feel very special and enjoyed every moment of it! The views over False Bay were fantastic and the airy feel to the property was invigorating...I know... More
