4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

A very nice place with helpsam and kind owners. The breakfast was very good. The guesthouse is located a little bit off, with 30 minutes walk to the railway station and than more than an hour by train to Cape town. So you had better have a car.

A very unusual and wonderful guest house. We were in the room that next to the (honesty) bar and both room and bar had a wealth of largely naval memorabilia. You really have to visit to understand this, it was a small museum. Breakfast was good taken out on the balcony. Dirk was talkative and helpful. We were able to... More

Hugely friendly and helpful hosts, cracking breakfast with beautiful views over the bay, comfortable rooms and plenty of quirky character, these are just the sort of things I want from a bed and breakfast. It is a little out of town and a fair walk from the train station if you don't have a car but Dirk was kind enough... More

We were made to feel at home as soon as we walked through the door. It was our first trip to Simon's Town and we were there to see the Sharks. This meant early rises and sadly missing out on the wonderful breakfast Dirk and Denise put on. Fortunately for us they were very accommodating and provided us a take... More

We selected this guest house from the excellent reviews and the location close to the penguin colony. We were not disappointed on either count. Our hosts gave great advice on where to go and what to see and they could not do more to make our stay memorable. The penguin colony is within easy walking distance. In fact some penguins... More

We stayed here for four nights at the beginning of our trip to South Africa. Excellent location for Cape point and just a short drive from the centre of Cape Town. The rooms were all clean and the owners were friendly and helpful. Highly recommend the Emily Hobhouse room with the ensuite bar that opens directly on to the patio... More

Very welcoming and helpful. My room's ventilation wasn't great but with a fan it was fine as outside wasn't too hot although our other room was very airy. Nice atmosphere & amazing views from balcony and lounge.

Thank you for your review. You are absolutely right regarding the ventilation in your room at the time. Please let me explain why we had to keep the windows closed. We had a serious fire a few weeks ago and the South Easter has been blowing for a while. To keep the black dust out, we have to close the... More

Beautifully decorated with a naval theme, full of 'collectibles', the Cheriton is really a one-off. The hosts have really thought of everything in the room; eg complimentary sherry, microwave, ironing board, toolkit (yes, a toolkit), adaptors. We had a very comfortable stay. Wifi was very fast and reliable. Honesty pub a unique experience. Its location is 400m from the beach... More

Denise and Dirk are remarkable hosts; super-friendly and totally hospitable. They offer a world of good advice for the surrounding areas and Cape Town, as well going out of their way to ensure a friendly and delightful stay. The rooms are excellent and the 'ensuite bar' is always a great place to end a busy day. We will be recommending... More
