This place is what a b&b should be! The breakfast was excellent, my food was ready as I sat and it was all so fresh! They were so helpful in booking an awesome tour of the area and security was top notch! Jackson was particularly friendly and had a great personality! Chatting with him was the highlight of my trip... More

I took my wife to Whale View over her birthday weekend. It was also the first time we had gone away with our baby since she was born. We were therefore a little apprehensive taking everything plus the kitchen sink with us on our first weekend trip out. The staff very kindly organised a baby cot for our room. The... More

We booked at the Whale View Manor in July this year for 3 nights and liked it so much and extended our stay for a extra 2 nights. The interior of the Manor is stylishly decorated. The rooms are lovely with beautiful views of the Ocean. We watched the sunrise from our room every morning and we enjoyed the fire... More

Our stay at the whale view manor was blessed with a beautiful whale sighting just in front of the hotel which directly faces the open sea. The service was personalized, friendly. A stunningly decorated quiet retreat with all the charms of the Cape Peninsula. Thank you!!!

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

I recently overnighted at the Whale View Manor in Simons Town and will highly recommend it. 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

I stay nearby Whale View Manor and today I thought I would try out their spa for a nice treat. I'm a huge sucker for a good view and the spa prices were so reasonable! I showed up about a half hour early to watch the sun dance upon the water and try my best to spot a whale spout... 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
