The hotel is wonderful and the view can't get any better. We want to say thanks to Darwin and his staff for making this stay unforgettable. If you want to have a good holiday, start at this hotel. 5 stars no doubt about that.

I googled places to stay and Magellans Passage, in large part because of all the great reviews, was the choice we made. Based on the great reviews we had high expectations and Darwin and the... More

Can't give this place enough praise, honestly. Had just over two weeks in this hotel as was working away for business as I often do. This is the best hotel I have ever stayed in. The whole hotel is very modern and beautifully finished. The service is brilliant and attentive. The food is truly mind blowing, all super fresh and... More

Beautiful Rooms, breathtaking view over false bay, and peaceful surroundings. Only 2km away from restaurants and about 500m from boulders beach african penguin colony! Great service and a dinner there is a must! Big Thanks to Darwin and his colleagues for giving us a great time there!

We stayed at Magellan's Passage during our honeymoon in December 2011. Darwin and the staff were simply incredible. My wife and I talk often talk about going back. A five star place, with a truly wonderful staff, incredible view of the water, and great location (Simon's Town, Penguin Beach, Cape of Good Hope). If you are in the Western Cape,... More

This place is truly incredible. The rooms and all common spaces are absolutely gorgeous with amazing views. We stayed in a sea-view room which was quite spacious with everything you would ever need, including heated floors in the bathroom! It is a five plus star experience for a very reasonable price. The staff (Darwin, Samuel, James) could not have been... More

The host Darwin and his staff made us feel really welcome when we arrived, and included a free pick up from the station and drop off to see penguins. The room was very spacious and furnished to a high standard, with great views of the sea, and the mountains. Excellent and friendly staff that went out of there way to... More

Magellan's Passage is located in Simon's Town, just outside of Capetown. This guest house offers luxury accommodations at an excellent cost. The Guest House staff- Darwin, Sammy and James were amazing, top notch service and a friendly atmosphere. We stayed in the Guest Suite which offered a view of the Mountain range out the bedroom window and upstairs off the... More
