We stayed over a weekend in a triple room. The staff were attentive to our needs. Great location if you want to explore Simonstown. The rooms are basic. The decoder system and channels need some attention.

We stopped in for lunch on our way back to the train. The service staff was attentive. The food was very good. We had the Hake and the ribs. The hake was moist and the ribs were not overly sweet or sauced. They had a limited but good selection of wines.

I didn't stay in the inn, but I did bring my dad here for Sunday lunch. It was a lovely old school meal, a proper three course Sunday lunch with soup,Yorkshire pudding, roast beef and bread pudding. Delicious! Dad loved it!

We had a one night stay in Simonstown at the Lord Nelson inn. What a charming hotel and great service it was! Nice and comfortable beds with beautiful ocean's view, satellite TV (sports channels :)) and a perfect wifi connection. The breakfast was also very tasty and more then enough. Thanks and we will be definately back again when visiting!

A nice pleasant stay with friendly staff. Very close to the Naval Museum which was very handy as time was short the next day. The Hotel was close to the restuarant in the town whichwas handy as we were tired having only just arrived that morning from the UK. Pamela & Ralph.
