4 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

we were very happy to stay there and had a very nice room. But some parts need refurbishment the balcony furnitures. The swimming pool not too clean and also dont know why they didnt empty dustbins though we stayed three nights.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed for 3 nights.Room very clean and staff extremely helpful . They need to replace the rusty chairs on the balcony. The pool looked nice and refreshing but was disappointed as no one bothered to clean it during our 3 days stay. No air conditioning but thankfully it was very windy while we were there.

Weekend break during business trip. Have had other excellent SA guesthouse stays. Treated ourselves to honeymoon suite. Free champagne and 60 hearts don't justify room title. 46 steps up to breakfast. Very hot, no ventilation resulting in poor sleep. Manager previously aware of very dangerous 6' unguarded drop outside room. Cannot recommend. East Sussex, UK

This was my family's second stay at Debbie's cottage and that should tell you something. The place is cosy and beautiful, with a great view. It is the perfect place to relax and unwind, read books and nap.

We spent a wonderful 8 days in a Self Catering unit of the Grosvenor. The rooms are comfortable and the kitchen has all the amenities you'd need to cook all your meals, if you choose. Just a short walk away is the main street in Simon's Town with a host of wonderful restaurants, and a number of beaches from which... More

We stayed in the Honeymoon Suite- a quiet getaway in the relaxed Simons Town with the restraunts and quirky arty shops of Kalk Bay just down the road in one direction and Cape point in the other. We did not benefit from the breakfast service but were looked after well by the Grosvenor team and next time we would book... More

Great all-round experience from Sue's welcome to the belt-stretching breakfast. We chose a sea-view room and it was very big. The view is of the naval base rather than a white-sand beach but its location is good in every other regard being equidistant from the penguin viewing bay and the town centre. (Beware, though, if you're not good with steps.)... More

Check in was quick and very friendly, room very spacious, clean and with awesome view over the harbor and the bay. Breakfast was okay. Perfect for a stay on your way to or from the Cape. Simon's Town is safe and you can easily walk to the harbor front for a dinner in one of the restaurants
