Thank you for your review and very happy you enjoyed your stay with us here at A Boat House, Simon's Town. Another glorious July day overlooking False Bay today, feels like summer.

Very nice location, with excellent views of Simonstown and the Cape. Friendly services and very helpful staff. Wonderful breakfast and easy parking access. Would stay there again in the Winter because of the north east facing sunshine and warm rooms.
