We'd been recommended this by Travelbyjo a local agent, whose judgment I respect. Perched against the mountainside this imposing white double storey offers superb views of False Bay from the terrace and the bedrooms with balcony. It is elegantly and tastefully appointed to a high standard throughout; the dining room is a splendid almost formal affair in which to enjoy... More

I really wanted to stay here and have spa treatments too. I also found the page on Facebook and was accepted as a friend. I sent a message and got no reply and had to book elsewhere ... We saw the place of the main road and excitedly buzzed on yesterday approximately 5.30pm. I tried to explain we'd come from... More

A beautiful hotel, close to a small beach. Great staff, great service, lovely rooms. The bar operates on an honesty policy and is a very relaxed way of spending an evening and the breakfast is perfect, especially as you overlook the ocean. Beach towels are available for the short walk down to the beach. Recommended.

Located on a slope overlooking the beach, the Whale View Manor is a great hotel, with beautiful interiors, Each room was differently decorated. We were lucky we had a room with a balcony overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and a small beach. Our room had an Afrikans interior. Quiet hotel, near the Simon Town's centre with the restaurants and a museum.... More

We fell in love with Whale View Manor the moment we walked into the entrance lobby. The place was more than just exquisitely decorated. It had the priceless quality about it which I can not put words to,simply it had heart & soul. The service provided by Dominique and her team was the best we had ever received. Discreetly, somehow...

This was our second year in a row that we stayed at Whale View Manor for 2 weeks. It was amazing! The Manager, Dominique, together with her outstanding crew of staff (same faces as 2013 and so welcoming!) ensured that our every whim was catered to. When we arrived, the team had remembered that in 2013, we spent every morning... More

We had chosen to give the city hotels a ditch and stay near the quiet Simons town for 3 nights. Ideal location from Boulders beach and Cape of Good hope. The hotel is very tastefully done and every aspect is attention to detail, the lounge area, the dining room and every bedroom is unique and romantic. Undoubetly the sea view... 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
