The guesthouse is up the hill from the main town, probably only a 5-10 minute walk but we had a car and it was very easy to drive back and forth. There is parking at the Grosvenor. We went out diving early one morning, but the next we were able to enjoy breakfast on their terrace... delicious and a fantastic... More

Lovely, relaxed place to stay with beautiful view over the bay. Was great as a base for activities, but also felt we could stay in and take it easy. When our shark dive was cancelled due to weather, they called around and found a last minute cancellation for the next morning. Some luck involved, but wouldn't have happened without service...

We visited Simons town in order to go in the cage and scuba dive. We stayed in Debbie's guest house and it was amazing! Even better than it looks in the pictures, especially the view from the balcony! The manager Sue, and her staff went above and beyond what would be expected. Especially when we had difficulty renting a car.... More

The guest house was not clearly marked and so a bit difficult to find, we weren't sure if we had found it and had to ask a guest to help us on arrival. Lugging baggage up several flights of stairs from the parking was quite arduous. The room was fine, comfortable, night staff (cant remember his name) was very helpful.... More

A quick walk to the quaint seaside village of Simonstown. Breakfasts served on an outside patio by the attentive Jonathan and a well appointed kitchen for all other meals. We will definitely be...

This is our 3rd stay and there is a reason we keep coming back. Amazing views across the harbor, good beds and linen, immaculately clean and wonderful staff. Breakfast is served on the veranda overlooking the sea. It's such a restful place to be. We love it.

Wonderful views of the sea. Friendly staff and management. Safe location it's away from the usual busy city and it gives you a chance to drive round the cape. Close to fish hoek and cape point. Homely
