I stayed at the Grosvenor as part of my package with Apex Shark Expeditions and I could not have enjoyed my stay more.
The house has amazing views of the town, its docks and the sublime False Bay and each member of staff made me feel so at home, helping me out in every way possible.
Facilities are very modern with an old fashioned twist of a local theme decor which all adds to the beauty and my room was very very spacious, spotlessly clean and kept.
Wi-Fi is available at a reasonable price and speed is good too and the large modern kitchen facilities are open for everyone to use no matter what basis you are staying on.
There are several supermarkets close by and it is only a 10min walk from the town and harbour. There are several great restaurants and food options are plentiful from Fish&Chips at the Salty Seadog on the pier, a takeaway kiosk, 2&6 bar for lively atmosphere and a train station within 20mins walk links to Cape Town and the False Bay coast at a very cheap price.
A must to visit is Boulders Beach and the Penguin Colony there. 15 mins walk gets you to one of the most spectacular beaches in the WORLD and the scenery is beautiful. It is made all the better by the penguins that live there and you can get very close to the little guys.
The only down side was the walk up the stairs to the hotel each day as it is a way from the road up a steep hill; but this certainly keeps you fit and the view from the balcony is worth the hill at any cost.
Highly recommended and I cannot wait to return. Thank you all
