“The perfect base for the Cape Peninsula”
Reviewed 1 January 2014

Its hard to add anything original to all the praise that this amazing place has rightfully received. We were spread over three rooms - including the one with the en suite (and remarkably well stocked) pub - and the quality of the accommodation was more than matched by the wonderful way in which we were looked after. I cannot recommend this highly enough!

We have been staying at The Cheriton for eight years now - from when our children were very young and shared our room in bunk beds - complete with soft toys and an advent calendar to welcome them - to recently with our now teenage children in their own room and us across the passage. The welcome is always warm and friendly, the breakfasts delicious and the attention to detail in the rooms phenomenal. The view over False Bay is breathtaking and the garden full of diverse bird life, relaxing and rejuvenating. We also enjoy the sparkling pool and the jacuzzi, and have no hesitation in recommending The Cheriton to anyone looking for a calm and welcoming bed and breakfast in a beautiful location in historic Simon's Town.

If we do not see your family at least once a year, we will think that we have lost the plot. It has been so interesting seeing your children grow into such lovely, well brought up teenagers.

Wish we had spent more than 1 night in this wonderful establishment. We had the charming Queen Room which had private use of the much mentioned pub in other reviews. Great place, great hosts and great breakfast. Everything perfect. A definite 5* establishment! Thank you so much and apologies for the delay in making our review.

Room Tip: Queen Room (the one which opens on to the Pub)

We are glad you enjoyed the bedroom with the "Pub" en suite. Some guests get a bit nervous when they hear there is a pub till they walk into it and see our wonderful collection of Navy and maritime memorabilia. Our pub works very well and is for our B&B guests only. Thanks for your kind words. Cheers.

This is not a house but an art, filled by flowers, historical pictures, and delicate ornaments and the hosts are so nice. An unforgetable experience is enjoy the delicious breakfast in the cabin room viewing the Indian ocean under sunshine. I love this house so much!

This is a truly unique and very cozy place to stay. The owners make you feel very welcome and it seems like you have rented an entire house instead of just one room. The view from the breakfast veranda is amazing and the hosts offer a computer and Internet for free. Can highly recommend it and would stay there again anytime.

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.
