We enjoyed the personal touch, which makes it a fun and welcoming B&B. Very friendly owners who obviously care a lot for the place. The rooms are not fancy but clean and full of character and attention to detail. Good English breakfast cooked to order. Small things like the self-service bar, game room and DVD library are nice extras. Only... More

Thank you for your lovely review. Our closest restaurant is about 10 minutes walk from our B&B. You are correct in stating that the restaurants in town are a bit further, like a 15 to 20 minutes walk and 1 or 2 minutes by car. But remember for that you also have the absolute peace and quiet at our B&B,... More

When visiting Cape Point, this is definitively the place you want to stay. It is very close to Boulders Beach. We've rented mountainbikes, to go to Cape point. An amazing trip and the best service from the hotel. They offer a backpack and make sure you have some cool water on the bicycle.

Stayed here for 5 nights. The pictures on the hotel website say it all. Absolutely crammed with naval memorabilia, which gives the place a real charm. Room was great: clean, comfortable and quiet. The Cheriton is a (safe) walk back from the center of Simon's Town at night, albeit up a steep incline for the final part. There are a... More

The only disappointment I feel is to be leaving this place after only three nights. The accommodation is excellent and the hosts are outstanding. The rooms are full of character and not your standard sterile hotel room, also clean and spacious. The cooked breakfast will set you up for the day! The penguin colony is just a short pleasant walk... More
