The hotel is located right at the harbor and therefore the center of Simon's Town. Shops and restaurants are nearby (try the Salty Sea Dog!). The room was quite spacious and had a nice balcony overlooking the harbor. Facilities were a little dated though. Staff was friendly and helpful with all inquiries and questions.

On the harbour you have picture view of the harbour, mountains and false bay. Rooms was spacious and well laid out. With a balcony to enjoy the view. Service was very good. Really value for money. Simonstown is a quiet but beautiful town.

Our drive to Simon's Town from Cape Town took us down the western side of the Cape Peninsula through Clifton Beach, Hout Bay, Fish Hoek, to Simon's Town. The drive was so breath-taking, with the road carved out of the rock cliffs. When checking into the Quayside Hotel, Kiernan helped us to up-grade our room to look over False Bay.... More

Good day, What a delightful review, thank you for taking the time to post it. The drive along the coastline from Cape Town to Simon’s Town is a little bit longer than using the freeway, but o so worth it, those views are just amazing. Even as a local you sometime forget how breath-taking they actually are. We are delighted... More

My family stayed here for 2 nights. Our rooms had a great view of False Bay and were very clean. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is surrounded by restaurants and shops. Perhaps the downside are the limited parking space and free wifi. Also, from one of our rooms, you could hear the noise from a nearby bar.

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.
