I stayed here for shark diving. The location is great for diving...the tour operators are right down stairs which makes early mornings easy. The hotel is very dated and a bit run down but the place is clean and comfortable. My room had great views over the bay and marina. Service was good. Did have some trouble with the Internet.

A very welcoming check in from Pearl. Comfortable room with a stunning view over the harbour. Breakfast in a bright welcoming dining room, with friendly staff. Ideally suited for wandering around Simonstown. Lots of places to choose to eat and interesting shops to browse in. A pleasant walk to the penguins at Boulders Beach. We really appreciated the little touches,... More

I really enjoyed my stay. The personnel are very friendly at the front desk and the cleaning services ladies are always keeping the place beautiful. I must say that the Chef is a very loud person and quite bossy to the personnel around the kitchen. I am sure that the General Manager will address this issue.

This hotel is very well located and within minutes of everything in Simon's Town. My room was very comfortable and spacious and had a lovely view of the harbour. I had a room only rate, and had breakfast at the hotel only once. The breakfast was average, but there are plenty of other options in close proximity. In general a... More

We had the MOST beautiful room with stunning views over the harbour. The breakfasts were lovely and all the staff could not have been more helpful. They helped us to make alternative choices when a great deal of roads were closed because of the fires. Only one thing stops this being absolutely perfect - no free Wi-fi. In this day... More

We booked in at the last minute and the staff could not have been more helpful and welcoming. They found us a harbour facing room which they made ready for us in super quick time.
