The Grosvenor was the perfect get-away, with the beautiful view and excellent facilities it was absolutely perfect! We were a group of 12 adults mixed with Swiss, Brazillian and Angolan students and they had the time of their lives making it hard to say good bye to the beautiful house they found to be their home away from home.

We absolutely love staying at the Grosvenor Guest House during the South African summer holidays. It's our home away from home for our large family during the period, except of course it's situated in sublime Simonstown and has everything to ensure we feel we've experienced a little bit of luxury. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend both the self-catering house and... More

We stayed in the self catering holiday house that is next to the guest house, has the same view and shares the same pool. The holiday house is decorated in "beach house" style with four bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. The two front rooms looked over False Bay and Simon's Town harbour and have good size bathrooms, the other... More

Thank you for your very constructive review. We are so happy you and your group enjoyed your stay in our self-catering unit. Great excitement today as the HMS Richmond sailed into the Naval yard en-ruite from the Falklands! Always something special to see from the veranda....... whales, yachts, new tugs arriving!

We stayed at the Grosvenor Guest House in the cottage for 12 days and it was superb. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and Sue was great in helping us with whatever question we had regarding transportation and day trips. The cottage itself is lovely and makes you feel being at home, and it has a fantastic sun terrace... More

Stunning boutique hotel with a homely feel, amazing views, very friendly / personal service. Breakfast was great and one day our 03:30 start was even accommodated with breakfast set up for us to help ourselves. Clean, comfortable, lovely decor, great value!
