This a fabulous place with a large living room complete with a fully stocked bar on an honor system. The room was very comfortable. We had cold weather during our stay and our host provided electric blankets. Staff was extremely helpful with luggage and very courteous. A selection of hot breakfast items were available and very generous portions were served.... More

From the very start we were made to feel special and welcome by the excellent team at this small hotel. We had a beautiful ocean view and we saw whales from the balcony! The room was very comfortable and the house staff were in frequently to ensure the bed was made and we had fresh towels and sweets etc. The... More

Great location with views of the sea (and whales) from our balcony and at breakfast - which was delicious and creative. All public areas were attractively decorated and welcoming. Our room including the bathroom was spacious and clean and the bed was very comfortable. But we were staying in winter and it was cold at night. The blinds were not... More

The location is perfect with stunning views of the water & beach and a sea view room is perfect bliss. The hotel is very tastefully decorated and the rooms & bathrooms of good size. The breakfast is of a very high standard in quality & quantity.

We stayed at WVM for 2 nights as my husband and I wanted to renew our vows for our 20th wedding anniversary. Dominique organised a full package and literally put everything together for us including a great photographer, beautiful dinner with champagne, hairdresser, a fabulous Reverend and even spa treatments. We had a wonderful day and we would definitely return... More

We have just completed a return trip to whaleview manor after a break of nine years. The magic is still there. Wonderful views over False Bay, fabulous and friendly service. The breakfasts are fantastic, the staff friendly, helpful and always smiling. We enjoyed two evening meals at the guesthouse and they were outstanding. We also enjoyed our spa treatments. A... More

Tremendous service and a delight to stay. We arrived very late due to a Mango flight delay but the staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. Breakfast was delicious, prompt and just what I needed on a busy business schedule. The sounds of the ocean were also a delight! Bright, airy spacious room (No 3) exceptionally clean and well appointed with... More

We loved our three night stay in the whale view manor! The view, as earlier reviewers also stated, is simply breathtaking! Our room was lovely and clean, but it is both the service and the food that made our stay one to remember. Upon arriving, we asked whether we could have dinner that night, and boy, what a brilliant decision... More

This hotel faces one of the spectacular beaches of Simon's Town. The views from the dining room, bedrooms and front door were jaw dropping. It was the perfect location for sunrise runs. It was within walking distance of the Boulder beach penguin colony, local restaurants and shark watching expeditions. The hotel staff were helpful and welcoming. The rooms were beautiful,... More
