“Canadian Travellers Experiencing South Africa”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

The B&B manager (Marika) ran this business as if it were her own. Kodos ! Rooms clean, breakfast plentiful, staff friendly and willing to help. We needed some medication and the staff told us where to go, where to park and whom to ask for. Dinner recommendations were excellent. Our room was next to the guest entry/exit gate and was therefore noisy early in the morning.

Thank you for taking the time to tell us your impressions especially as we were away at the time. Marietjie is a very good locum but may not be aware of the possible problems of noise at the front door. Your review has reminded us to tell her about it. Sorry about the inconvenience.

After being drawn to the Cheriton via the website, what a fantastic choice of guest house. Dirk, Denise, Margaret and the rest of the staff made us feel like part of the family from the outset. They catered for our every need and ensured that we had a great time. Their knowledge of the area and its history was second to none, and their information ensured that we maximized our time during the stay to full effect. The location was superb with fantastic views over the bay, appreciated over breakfast served on the "Bridge". All rooms were decorated and cleaned to a high standard, and the communal bar area (Just Nuisance) was unbelievably quaint and homely. The hot tub and garden pool were available during our stay, but the weather was a little cool to full appreciate these amenities. If there was a disappointment, it was that we had to leave after such a short week, but we have made the promise to return in the future. This guest house is fully recommended and worthy of at least 5 stars.

We often remark on how lucky we are that you chose us from all the sites on the internet. Don't forget your promise to return - especially when we are playing rugby. (not Wales).

It was a walk-in; I didn't reserve ahead. The couple who owns and manages were very nice and welcoming. The whole establishment is marine-themed, in a colorful and jolly way. The room very good, great breakfast, and very reasonable rate.

Our family of 5 had turned up without reservation to Cheriton B&B, and was warmly welcomed. We were given a tour of the place before commiting... and we instantly knew that this was THE place to be ! kids , teenagers and adults : all thought it was here and nowhere else we should stay. Interior is cosy, authentic, with a feels like a museum with many interesting objects to discover (in this regards it makes perfect sense they have a few surveillance cameras !) Had breakfast with breathtaking views ! Rooms are cosy, and ikt felt like our hosts thoughs of every little details to go the extra mile ! (binocculars, etcà) We did not use the pool which was being made ready for the season... also noticed a stylish bar which I expect to attend during our next visit to SImon's town.
We were indeed very lucky, excellent value value and such good vibes !!

From the bottle of Old Brown that greeted us on arrival to the last bite of Margaret's wonderful breakfast before we departed, Dirk and Denise made us feel right at home at this wonderful establishment. We stayed in the en-suite pub--a marvelous concept--which not only took care of our beverage needs but also gave us a nice sitting room. The room was quiet and the bed was comfortable. We slept very well. The collections of naval memorabilia, old cameras, and vintage posters are wonderful and worth a visit to the pub even if you're not thirsty. The view at breakfast is magnificent and the garden is very nice. Unfortunately it was too cold for us to enjoy the hot tub or pool. The location is a short walk (15 minutes) from Boulder's Beach and a 15 minute drive from the entrance to the Cape.

Very very very nice room we had indeed! All decoration and things around the house is remarkable collection of life :) We had the room downstair with honesty bar attached and that was just something, all small little things tells a story.
Breakfast was super with sea-view and the little garden the house has is just beautiful!

We stayed for two nights at Cheriton and really enjoyed it. Denise and Dirk were really welcoming and the breakfast was top notch with a great view of the sea. We stayed in the double room just outside and it had an honesty bar attached to it - you really must see this for yourselves, they have built the bar brilliantly. The best local attraction is the Penguins at Boulders Beach. We would definitely stay at Cheriton again.

Room Tip: Choose the double room outside - simple great experience.
