My daughter and I stayed here together while vacationing in South Africa and fell in love with the Grosvenor! Not only was it a beautiful room with a balcony overlooking the bay which was so lovely in the afternoon, but the people there were so kind and helpful. James and Jonathon were there for any need that we had and... More

We were recommended this Guest House by the very nearby Apex Predators shark viewing operators. We were so pleased to have taken up their recommendation wishing we had stayed there for our whole 4 days in Simon's Town instead of 2 days. Both the rooms were lovely with super views over The Bay and Simon's Town. The whole place was... More

Debby and Sue really know how to make their guests happy. They surprised us with a some bubbles in the garden. We had a very spacious room with a big bathroom. The breakfast was served outside and the great staff made it just as we liked it. But the best part was definitely the fantastisc view: while enjoying our breakfast,... More

Stunning views across False Bay. Accommodation top-notch with balconies and en suite shower/bathroom. Communal living room with digital TV, wood stove and balcony. Staff very friendly and helpful. I stayed here for 8 of the 13 nights I spent in South Africa and it was by far the best place I stayed at. The last two nights (my second spell)... More

Where do I start? We arrived at 12am Jonathan a staff member wait until we got there and took the time to go through everything with us. He even went down to the pier to show us exactly where to go in the morning for the Apex tour. Extremely helpful! We were booked here through APEX so it's super easy... More

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

On arrival we where welcomed with such friendly, warm and accommodating staff! 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
