We spent two nights here while visiting the cape/Simon's Town area and really enjoyed Whale View Manor. It is in a great location right across from the beach and is up on a small hill so it has a beautiful view. It is walking distance from the Boulders Beach Penguin Colony. It is just outside the shops/pier in Simon's Town... More

The views are stunning, regardless of if you have sea or mountain view and I wish I had been able to spend longer in the beautiful gardens. The Manor has stunning décor and the many small touches lent to a very homely feel. Staff... More

Spent two nights here- very quiet spot with a wonderful views of false bay, and a do-able walk to Simon's Town itself. Room was a decent size, queen bed, plenty of storage, tv, free wifi, little balcony with lovely views. Bed was very comfy, room had adequate heating. Bathroom was good size- my only issue would be with the height... More

April 2014, spent few nights with my wife and parents. The rooms are not too large but pretty nice, the view is also very good. small restaurant and lounge, but very well decorated. Will be glad to stay again. do note this is a half "do it yourself" inn.

We had our wedding here in April 2014 and wow, what a wonderful weekend. The location is just perfect, with the most amazing views.
