Whale View Manor… distinctive and sumptuous…. a jewel of a guest house located in historic Simon’s Town and close to Boulders Beach that is world famous for the African Penguins. Whale View Manor is situated directly opposite a picturesque and secluded beach. The uninterrupted, breath-taking views, at the southern-most tip of Africa enhance the unique experience of this accommodation. This gem also has a backdrop of majestic mountain vistas. As you step into the eclectic reception area, you are treated to an extravaganza of the senses. Extraordinary artifacts and collectibles greet and welcome you. Susan Smyth, the owner, travels extensively and her keen eye selects remarkable objet d'art that she lovingly brings home to Whale View Manor. Visual delights are further accentuated by subtle fragrances wafting through the reception, by bougainvillea petals floating inside from the charming courtyard and by the gleaming smiles of the dedicated staff. Exemplary service defines Whale View Manor. The team will go to any lengths to create a memorable, magical experience for their valued guests – from set ting up a breakfast table on the beach to arranging a tantalizing high-tea in the garden. Flexibility and creativity allow for the team to cater to your dreams. Accommodation:Six of the rooms have spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean, while four have beautiful garden and mountain views. All the rooms have newly appointed en suite bathrooms and satellite television. Breakfast & Dining: Breakfast is served in the restaurant overlooking the ocean. Scrumptious freshly prepared meals are served with the aroma of freshly ground coffee filling the air. Our restaurant is open for lunch and dinner - booking essential. The meals are quite delectable.

We had booked a couple of rooms for the evening and arrived around 4.00 pm. After gaining access, call from the bottom of the driveway, we were greeted by the staff. Though slightly disorganised, they helped as best the could. The hotel is small but the rooms are comfortable and

Lovely, smaller hotel with helpful and friendly staff and the best view you can wish for! A little south of Simon’s town but a perfect stop on the way to or from Cape of Good Hope. Really good breakfast too 👌🏼

I didn’t actually stay in this hotel but had to leave a review for the lovely Julia at the spa. I had the most amazing pedicure and facial, the perfect remedy for a rainy day. The hotel was beautiful and I left feeling totally relaxed and recharged. Julia really knows what she’s
