The venue is beautifully decorated. The host, Andre makes you feel at home the minute you get there and provides very helpful advice in terms of activities and restaurants to visit. Overall a lovely experience.

Rooms were generously sized and comfortable. The bathtub and kitchen appliances were on the basic / ageing side but apart from that the views and balconies were fantastic, and the bed and couch were very comfortable.

We enjoyed 2 nights in the beginning of January in beautiful Simon's Town. In the Albatross Guesthous, we found a generous appartment, run by a very friendly family. The outlook from the appartment and the terrace is fantastic! We had a perfect stay!

Comfortable, clean and well appointed with stunning views over False Bay. Ideally suited for a family stay, especially as there are two bathrooms and a very comfortable lounge area. Spent a lot of time on the verandah watching the sea :-).

We stayed two nights in December. The view was amazing the beds comfortable and the hosts very helpful.

The location is terrific for exploring Simons town, Cape Point... More

We stayed here for two nights. The apartment had a nice view but it felt cluttered and dusty, especially the bedrooms. I thought it was overpriced for what it was and for where it was. It's not somewhere I would choose to stay again.
