Dirk and Denise Brinkman run an exceptional guest house. Their attention to detail made the start of our holiday fantastic. The drawer in our room contained all the little things you need - even a small pair of pliers! The atmosphere relaxed, the breakfasts delicious, the room spacious and clean. We would love to visit again.

We have just stayed in this wonderful place and cannot recommend it highly enough. The owners Denise and Dirk are so friendly and helpful, especially good with restaurant recommendations and things to do in the area. The room was very nice (next to the quaint private house "pub" bar) and very comfortable and there's a beautiful little pool with a...

A delightful small guest house, spotlessly clean, pretty rooms and a beautiful, small, outdoor area in the beautiful garden with pool. The owners were pleasant and welcoming and Dirk delighted in showing us his many collecdtions of memorabilia around the property. Breakfast was outstanding. I would hesitate to recommend this to others and will always go back and stay there...

Thanks you for your kind words. We are very glad that you enjoyed your stay.

Staying over for just one night but felt very welcome nevertheless. Decorated in a naval style with little thingies everywhere adding to this special atmosphere. The brown sherry in the room is a treat for a nightcap-wonderful idea! A wonderful and opulent English breakfast was a great start into the day. Don't miss the opportunity to be one of the...

So glad we booked this place for our one night stop-over in Simon's Town. Looking at it from the street (quiet location up a very slight hill just a few minutes walk from the beach) you get no idea what's behind the front door! When we arrived Dirk gave us a choice of two rooms, the Protea & the Outeniqua....

We stayed here for 4 nights whilst touring the Cape Peninsular. Throughout our stay we received superb service from Dirk and his staff. Our room was a bit cramped but other than sleeping in it we spent very little time there. The guest house is quite spacious with a large lounge, indoor and outdoor eating areas, a honesty bar and...

What a lovely place. Lot to explore and a $1Mio view. We enjoyed the stay as a family. Our daughter loved the pool. My wife admired the flowers and different angle of the garden.

We have just left The Cheriton with more than a tear in our eye. It was my 5th visit to Simons Town and I could very easily book other accommodation, but, WHY WOULD I? The location is superb for most attractions. An easy walk to Boulders Beach and the restaurant there. A slightly longer walk to Simons Town and parking...

We loved it here, the room was perfect, the garden and pool a delight, and between observing the plethora of maritime souvenirs, objects and sculptures, the tropical birds in the garden and the stunning views from the deck, there is always something new to discover. The atmosphere is homey and relaxed, and Dirk and Denise are great hosts. As if...
