I had my wedding at this place. Stayed for two nights. Beautiful place, great view, very friendly and helpful staff members, except for the manageress - very difficult to co-operate with, pushing her opinion on how my wedding was supposed to be... Being rude to the service providers I chose over hers. She made an impression as if she was... More

A fabulous little gem. Lovely rooms overlooking the sea. Definitely go for breakfast. If your thinking of staying here... Just go for it. You will be in for a great stay. Not far from Simons town. Comfortable rooms with big beds. Spotlessly clean and friendly staff.

Staff were great, and like a lot of the small hotels we stayed at in South Africa they have... More

We spent two nights at the Whale View in early January and loved it. The view, the sound of the waves, the service, the relaxed atmosphere - even the challenge of getting unparked and down that driveway - were absolutely delightful. Jim & Andrea, Toronto, Canada.

The room is perfect with good linen on the bed and spotlessly clean. The view is amazing and the beach across the road is perfect. Breakfasts are delicious and beautifully presented. The... More

My husband surprised me with a little getaway to this lovely hotel for our 1st anniversary. Lovely view from the bedroom and such friendly staff. Great spot! With a beautiful little beach right across the road front the hotel. Great falling asleep to the sound of the waves crashing!
