“Very luxurious guesthouse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2014

We spend two days in this guesthouse that you can compare with a 4/5 star hotel. Large, good beds, excellent free wifi in your room and a spectacular view. Is situated a 5 min drive from the center of Simons Town and up on a hill so a car is very useful if you are going to stay here.

Luxurious and spacious rooms with see view. Very good breakfast.
Very helpful staff, specially Lynn :)
The guesthouse is located between Simons Town and Fish Hoak, very good starting point to visit the Cape of good Hope or the penguins at Boulders.

Me and my husband stayed in Simons Town Guest House in February and we were looking for a quiet place but not far away by car from lots of good restaurants and tourist attractions. We had an amazing stay at Simons Town Guest House. The drive to the house is itself exciting. The house is on a hill and you get the best views of the Bay. There are plenty of restaurants in the area which Amanda and Lynn will be happy to recommend to you. Staff are so friendly and helpful that we were made to feel at home there. We would definitely recommend stay at Simons Town Guest House to our friends.

We stayed here over 2 years ago so I am a little late in this review but the visit was so wonderful I still think about it. There was not a thing that Amanda did not take care of for us. She has a truly beautiful property with views that are outstanding but she is what makes the place outstanding. If you are looking for a place to stay look no further because I cannot imagine it getting any better than here.

My husband and I stayed here in September of 2012. (Yes its taking me this long to write a review so sorry!!) We loved it! The room had incredible views and the mattress was so comfortable after long days of sight seeing. The room was very clean as well. But mainly,, the owner Amanda was wonderful!!!! We loved her and still think about how nice she was to us. She helped me with car rental, booking a shark dive, winery tours etc.! Our flight was delayed and she had to get up very late to let us in and she was very pregnant at the time. We felt so bad but she never seemed like she was bothered. She even packed a lunch for us the morning of our Shark dive. She was truly invaluable help. Thanks for making our trip even more amazing and comfortable. We can't wait to come back.

A very well run guest house with personal attention. Rooms are spacious, clean with wonderful views of the sea below and with special photographs of animals on the walls by the owner.
Well thought out layout of guest house.
Parking good and easy access by car to beaches and nearby towns.
Definitely a place to stay as you get what you see online and more.

Room Tip: All have sea views I believe. I cannot imagine that any room may be a bad choice. I stayed 6 nights...
