Boulders Beach Lodge is the best stay to see and visit the african penguin. Room and Breakfast were good. It is quiet. During night you only may hear the ocean and the penguin. Simons town center is very close. You need less than 5 minutes to drive there.

Beautiful location by the beach. But you can't get to the break at dawn or dusk which was why I chose this lodge because it is locked. Rooms tired, damp walls. As soon as the sun goes down the cockroaches come out. Fortunately not in the rooms but outside and in the restaurant. Hotel closes at 9pm and there are... More

Perfectly placed for access to the Cape Peninsula and viewing the Penguins before the crowds arrive. A spell on the beach swimming with the Penguins is a must. The food in the restaurant is top class. Rooms are very comfortable - I liked the fact they are set around a courtyard. Excellent value.

A nice and quiet place (well, the penguins may be noisy even during the night) near the Boulders beach and penguins colony. Enjoy the breakfast and other meals eventually in front of the sea. Simon's Town offers also nice restaurants.

The room is quite big and comfy. It is clean as well. Warm welcome by the tenants, and there is a car park in front of the hotel. We stayed in room 12, which has a direct view on the penguins colony( but we did not hear them during the night, as we read in previous reviews). The restaurant is... More

Very much 'by the sea' and the penguins - one came up during the evening to my daughter's and my delight. Courteous, flexible and responsive staff - added a day and upgraded our room to a self-serve facilities without asking. Georgeous sun and views from the restaurant. On the other hand, some maintenance challenges - lights, peeling paint, that should... More

This was my husband and I’s 8th wedding anniversary and we traveled with two of our friends and visited South Africa, Zambia, Botswana, and Kenya. We ended up booking our entire stay with the exception of Cape Town through AfricanMecca whom I will review separately. I chose Boulders Beach Lodge because of the resident penguins. After a bit of back... More

We stayed here for one night solely because of the penguins. We were not disappointed on that front as the hotel is adjacent to boulders beach and there were even a pair or two of penguins in the courtyard. Beware - during mating season (maybe all the time) the penguins are very loud, including at night. Besides the penguins, our... More

Nice hotel, great location. Biggest downside is that at night the penguins are LOUD! When I stayed at the hotel, a pair had taken up residence on the hotel's patio and the braying was super loud. It's cool to be kept awake by a penguin, but still I was kept awake....
