While visiting family in Cape Town we decide to base ourselves in Simon's Town. Picked the Grosvenor as it was well rated and it lived up to every word. It's easy to find and since it's only one road up the slope from the main road it's quiet, but still close enough for all the beaches, shops and restaurants. We... More

We stayed while doing shark cage diving for a few weeks. Sue was very helpful with everything we needed such as a cab to go for dinner. Jonathan and James were great as well, providing a great breakfast on any morning we wanted one, it was quite delightful. J and J also went above and beyond the call of duty,... More

Tucked away up a hill off the Main Street in Simons Town, the Grosvenor is a beautiful spot to base yourself for exploring the cape. The views across the sea are gorgeous and the breakfast and pool areas make the most if them! Great service, lovely big room and close to restaurants!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Grosvenor Guest House. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was spacious and clean and we had good views over the harbour. The penguin colony is an easy walk away and is definitely worth a visit. I'd also recommend a visit to the Scatch Patch gemstones shop and factory on Dido Valley... More

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.
