The room was very comfortable and clean. The hotel has a penguin nest right under the steps for the rooms in the second floor rear. The hotel owner is very concern with the preservation of the penguin. The parking lot in front of the hotel is next to a penguin breeding conservation program. One can get to see the penguins...

I really liked this hotel: it was situated right near the penguins, which is great. It's also well managed and checkin / checkout was made very easy. The place was clean and comfy, and reasonable value. The included breakfasts were also quite good. I would recommend to others.

This lodge is literally on top of the Boulders Beach Penguin colony. There were penguins nesting under the stairs leading to our room. This is the place for the die hard penguin lover. The lodge rooms are rustic beach style. room 15 has a view of the ocean. this is not a luxury resort by any means, but who cares... More

It was amazing to see penguins whilst eating breakfast, and I also had a laugh seeing one of them run across the Lodge patio - barely half a metre ahead of me! They truly are adorable. This said, I am not overly enthused about the Lodge. Annie was extremely flexible, as I encountered some issues conducting the payment online so... More

This is a quaint little place that is very peaceful. Great stay! Great food! Great people!. If you need a driver to take you around, as to use a guy named Morey, he was not only a driver, but a great tour guide also.

Awesome location and very economic nightly rate that incuded a full cooked breakfast. Simons Town is a great launch pad for Cape Point and this hotel is situated on the south of town, with special visitors even meeting you in the car park at night (local Pengins). Some reviews were critical of the facilities...I've paid a lot more in other... More

The rooms are simple and basic but clean and the bed was very comfortable. Boulders Beach is one of our favourite spots in the world and... More

Great location, just a bit noisy in the early hours of the morning from the penguins. The Restaurant service was good and the staff were friendly and efficient. The food was tasty and well presented. Parking is a problem as the parking area is a public parking and the Lodge does not have its own reserved parking for living in... More
