The service and breakfast is excellent. The hospitality is excellent with a excellent Navy theme in the house, accommodation, private pay as you drink bar. You have a choice of over 200 DVD's to chose from and view in your own room. Some rooms also have underfloor heating which makes this a must stay in winter.

Its been a week since our stay. I always write a review a week later because then I feel to be the most honest. My husband and I had a fantastic stay.

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...

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,...

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...

We stayed at the Cheriton for 5 nights in early February and wish it could have been longer. Denise and Dirk really care about what they do and boy does it show.
