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

Loved the 4 nights we spent at Whale View Manor. 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 unfortunately did not... 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

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at Whale View Manor. We knew we had made the right choice the moment we pulled up on the drive. We were met by Jackson taking the cases from our car and Dominique was inside to greet us personally. We were given drinks whilst we sat on the balcony taking in... More

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 ...
