Great spot, penguins on site and just a short drove from the Cape of Good Hope section of the national park. Friendly helpful staff and reasonable rates. The best option if you want to see and experience the penguins.

Dec: From a location prespective, this place is unbeatable. It is right outside the penguin viewing place. Since we went there during the holidays, it was difficult to get parking but the lodge managed. The rooms are very basic. We had to request for table fans as the nights were very warm. However, if you manage to stay awake late... More

The perfect spot in Simonstown to visit the Penguins. Staff were very friendly and helpful and helped to arrange transportation for me. As I was travelling alone I took an uber to Simonstown from the airport which cost around 445R. But well worth it for the amazing spot right next to the penguins. The restaurant does close early at 1700... More

Everything perfect, the only thing we did not like was the fact of the restaurant closes at 17.00 and they told us at 16 that it was already late and we could not have any food at the restaurant. Very disappointing.

I went here to be close to penguins. This did not disappoint there are penguins nesting on the property including right by my ground floor room. They are loud! I did not mind I love them. It is nice to get up early to visit the beach too penguins are all over the parking lot and wander down the paths... More

The lodge is 1 minute by walk from the beach, room are so nice and elegant, we had the mountain view room and it was stunning. Breakfast is included in the price and the restaurant is such a good place to go to eat with a great terrace with ocean and beach view. There is no wifi, no tv ,... More

We just loved our stay there! The location is great, right next to the penguin beach. We even had a penguin nest with two babies right in front of our room and could watch them form our room. The rooms and furniture was a little bid older but I honestly don't care because we came for the penguins. We had... More

Apart from location a bit dissapinted. A tiny strip of sea visible from one corner of a quite delapidated "balcny with seaview" apartment. Did not really seem prepared for dinner (we had to eat early, staff need to go home) so went somewhere else. Lovely breakfast though. And loved the stray penguin's noise outside our room the night.

No parking for the car. Poor service. The lodge is in desperate need of renovation. And very expensive for what you get. The location is great and the penguins are really close which is nice. But in my opinion is just not worth it.
