The guest house was not clearly marked and so a bit difficult to find, we weren't sure if we had found it and had to ask a guest to help us on arrival. Lugging baggage up several flights of stairs from the parking was quite arduous. The room was fine, comfortable, night staff (cant remember his name) was very helpful.... More

A hidden gem! This guesthouse has everything one needs : from a beautiful view of the harbour and the sea to crisp clean linen on comfortable beds. A quick walk to the quaint seaside village of Simonstown. Breakfasts served on an outside patio by the attentive Jonathan and a well appointed kitchen for all other meals. We will definitely be...

Excellent Excellent!!! We had the most amazing time and stay at the Grosvenor Guest House!! The location is perfect for short walks both to the beach and to restaurants.

This is our 3rd stay and there is a reason we keep coming back. Amazing views across the harbor, good beds and linen, immaculately clean and wonderful staff. Breakfast is served on the veranda overlooking the sea. It's such a restful place to be. We love it.

Wonderful views of the sea. Friendly staff and management. Safe location it's away from the usual busy city and it gives you a chance to drive round the cape. Close to fish hoek and cape point. Homely

Very clean, well-appointed (perhaps too much so!) rooms, nice public areas, great breakfast on balcony overlooking bay, efficient and helpful staff. Walking distance to Simon's Town, beaches and penguins (although single and female guests might prefer driving). Small but pleasant pool.

Grosvenor guest house is such an incredible home away from home. After taking the beautiful scenic drive out to Simonstown, we were met by friendly staff with welcoming smiles. The place is neat, tidy, and well-decorated, yet very homey. The views of the harbour and the whole of False Bay can be enjoyed with a drink in your hand from... More
