Beautiful location, lovely rooms with sea views, scrumptious breakfasts plus a welcoming host. The highlight of my stay was sitting in the bath watching the moon rise over simons town beach. This is a really great place to stay and our experience was faultless... just perfect. This is definately in my personal top 5 places to stay in South Africa....

Was nice and they went out of their way to help us. Rooms were comfy and clean. Close to the sea for walks. Roads are very steep. Breakfast decent. Tv was sub standard with very limited channels and poor quality.

We only spent two evenings at the Simonstown Guest House but loved our room and the beautiful view. The rooms are decorated in more of an African than beach-side theme. The bathroom had a lovely bath with sea views - and candles were left out for an evening bath. The bathroom was spacious and very modern. The breakfasts were delicious...

Stunning views and rooms! My wife and I are quite fussy when it comes to good accommodation. This was outstanding with regard to the beautiful clean rooms with stunning ocean views, execellent hospitality from the staff (Especially Rika who accommodated our every need) and the overall Guest house itself. 5 out of 5 - Will definitely be returning!

I wanted to stay somewhere quiet outside Capetown for one night and to enjoy the coast. Rika has a lovely guest house, the rooms are spotless, newly decorated and a good size, and the views a fabulous. Really good quality breakfast too. Highly recommend this as a place to stay.

Thank you so much for your thoughtful and positive comments and recommendation. A good hearty breakfast is always a good way to start the day which is why guests can have not just one, both both a Continental and a Cooked Breakfast if their appetite allows :) We hope we can welcome you back here again some day in the...

We stayed for three nights and can highly recommend this beautiful place. Nothing is too much trouble and the hosts are wonderful. Lovely breakfast and outstanding attention to detail in the rooms. Only negative: not walking distance from the beach, no pool or sun beds to tan, no balcony. We will come back again for sure!
