Thank you so much for your response. We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay with us. We agree that having breakfast on our veranda and watching the coming and goings in the Naval Harbour is fascinating. Spotting the odd whale at this time of the year also adds a bit of excitement. The Grosvenor team hopes to welcome you... More

Our room was very spacious and overlooked the harbour- it was simply breath taking- could not have asked for a better view of False Bay! The furniture and décor of the guest house and our room was homely and tasteful. The bedrooms allowed for sufficient privacy, we didn't... More

The accommodation is comfortable, cozy and enjoys stunning views. The staff were incredibly helpful, warm and friendly and very willing to accommodate my every request - in fact, there is very little this guesthouse has NOT thought of! I think I'll make this my guesthouse of choice every time I visit Simon's Town. It is HIGHLY recommended

Stayed here again for a week while visiting. This is the guest house to use when staying in Simon's Town. Situation on Forest Hill Road a bit up the hill, it offers spectacular views of False Bay. The steps provide access to the Main Road and a quick and easy walk into town. Keep in mind that there are quite... More

Debbie and her staff create a wonderful environment. The level of service is excellent. Everyone was friendly and catered to our every need. I loved the furniture decor in the cottage - comfortable and tasteful. Fantastic views! A great weekend stay, thank you! I would definitely return.

This delightfully furnished, spotlessly clean and well-equipped guest house provided a perfect getaway in our own city for me, my girlfriend and a couple of our friends. The views across False Bay are spectacular, and can be enjoyed whilst munching on a delicious breakfast on the balcony. Our rooms were clean, comfortable and luxurious; the biggest issue was forcing ourselves... More
