The Grosvenor is a brilliant guest house in an elevated position above Simon's Town with views of the naval base - so there is always something interesting to look at. The room and bathroom were both excellent but I couldn't find a channel on the TV and the free wifi allowance was inadequate. Sue and her team were delightful -... More

The guest house is in a very good location to visit Boulder's beach and Cape Point, will need a car to get around. The accommodation is excellent, clean and spacious and well provided with amenities. The pool is sufficient for a dip after a hot day of sight seeing, hiking.

An excellent Bed and Breakfast that easily exceeds most hotels that I have stayed in. It is within a 5 minute walk from the Town. The rooms are clean, large and have great facilities. The breakfast is faultless and caterers for any diet. The main reason for the Grosvenor’s success is the staff that cannot accommodate you enough. Nothing is... More

I had a lovely stay at Grosvenor, the house is comfortable and immaculate with amazing views of the habour and a swimming pool! Johnathan was very helpful accommodating early breakfast. The hotel is an excellent base for the Cape Town Pelagic Cruises, being less than a ten minute walk from the harbour.
