Located on the sea front with views across the marina, I cannot paint or draw but the view tempted me to learn. The hotel does not have its own restaurant but is surrounded by a fantastic selection of places to eat, if you like seafood this is the place for you. There is a good selection of shops in the...

Located in a great part of ST basically in the marina near many restaurants and right above Apex Shark Expeditions (the reason we were in Simon's Town). The staff was great and the room was nice, but the shower was awful. The first day we did not have hot water. Every time we used the shower after that, the water... More

I will always return to Quayside as the friendly staff and presentation of everything is amazing. I have recommended many friends. I will return with my children as I love that side of the city. I do however wish to book on the ground floor as I have not had a room with balcony before.

We stayed in a road-facing room (at the front of the hotel) for two nights. The room was small and simple, but very clean and comfortable, and the staff couldn't be more pleasant and helpful. It is a great base to stay if you are planning to try and see sharks, as the boats set off pre-dawn and the hotel... More

The hotel is really clean and comfortable. It's located at the pier which we can just simply walk there within 2 mins. If you go diving with APEX Shark Expedition, it's perfect location. Staffs were really helpful and nice. Bed was really comfy.

I had an awesome stay at the Quayside Hotel in Simon ' s Town (good service, food clean accommodation). Everything is in walking distance, great view over the bay and lots of history. Whales in the bay was an extra bonus.

After our first stay at Quayside was so wonderful we wanted to go back! The hotel is charming, the staff are friendly, they accommodate all your needs, great restaurants nearby (Bertha's is a winner!) and the scenery is so lovely! The only disappointment were the Harley riders revving in the Harbour on arrival of their breakfast run on the Sunday... More

Brilliant location, situated on a working harbor with great views of the yacht basin. The hotel could do with a better pub. The staff made it feel like the pub was there domain and we should stay in the restaurant. The location makes it special

We had a very pleasant stay at the Simon's Town Quayside Hotel, and were sad that we were not staying longer! Very clean, with helpful happy staff, picturesque views of the bay, and the Cape mountains, good food, an overall pleasure!
