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

Very clean, well-appointed (perhaps too much so!) rooms, nice public areas, great breakfast on balcony overlooking bay, efficient and helpful staff. Walking distance to Simon's Town, beaches and penguins (although single and female guests might prefer driving). Small but pleasant pool.

Grosvenor guest house is such an incredible home away from home. After taking the beautiful scenic drive out to Simonstown, we were met by friendly staff with welcoming smiles. The place is neat, tidy, and well-decorated, yet very homey. The views of the harbour and the whole of False Bay can be enjoyed with a drink in your hand from... More

Another phenomenal weekend away, this time even better than the last! Came down for a wedding on top of Redhill, and were blessed with the most phenomenal weather on Saturday and Sunday, barely a breath of wind and temperatures hitting 28-30 degs! The guesthouse was immaculate as always, and the much needed R&R was deeply appreciated! The views from the... More

Thanks very much to our delightful hosts and their fantastic staff - we had a wonderful stay. Beautiful and spacious bedrooms with great views over the harbour. Enjoyed a scrumptious breakfast on the veranda - can't wait to come back.

We had booked a twin room here and were given a two bedroom cottage instead since the guest house had a group of people staying and the manageress thought we would be more comfortable on our own. The cottage was really lovely with 2 good sized double rooms (each with bathroom) and a fully equipped kitchen and sitting room together... More

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

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!
