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 is a guest house you cannot miss out on! From friendly smiles on arrival, to inspiring decor and fresh open spaces, this guest house definitely ticks all the boxes.

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

We stayed for 2 weeks in the honeymoon cottage and loved it. It was clean, comfortable and had amazing views. The staff were very nice and professional. We'd like to say a special thank you to Sue for everything she did for us especially her company and sharing her favorite pub and restaurant. We'd recommend Grosvenor House to anyone.

I travelled with the wedding party to Simon's Town and we literally booked out all of the rooms. I did not deal with the staff of the guest house at all as all our room keys were handed over to the groom-to-be who directed us to our rooms. My room is high up in the top manor house. The Twin...

Thank you for your review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Grosvenor House. You are right, parking is a challenge to us as we are situated in a residential area.

Staying in the delightful, cosy 2 bedroomed cottage over the road from the main house, we immediately felt right at home - a warm welcome and a tea tray with homemade rusks - it's that sort of place. The cottage is very private, well appointed, very clean and has all the comforts of home (it also has a bath). Decorated... More
