Our visit coincided with the breeding season and penguins were incubating eggs on the terrace right outside our hotel room door, taking turns to go to sea to feed. Change over was fun to witness. The hotel room was clean and comfortable and the restaurant had a decent, if limited, menu. The restaurant terrace had a very nice sea view as well. It would have been nice to have had a lounge area to sit in from time to time. There was a small area for sitting but not very comfortable and it felt more like a waiting room. The selling point for the hotel has to be its proximity to the beach where the penguin colony is located. It's a lovely, sheltered beach, good for families and especially good for seeing the penguins close up. It was also a good base for exploring the cape peninsular as well as being not too far from the airport for our return flight. We had a pleasant, 2 night stay at Boulders Beach Lodge at the end of a 3 week tour of Cape Town and The Garden Route.
