We booked two rooms for two nights and we couldn't have been happier. From the moment we arrived, we were not only made to feel like valued guests but also "old friends." We were greeted by two precious doggies and the owner, Gillian and after being shown to our rooms, we were asked to join her for a welcome drink in the bar area. We sat and enjoyed a glass of wine and chatted about the area. Three of the four of us were going on a cage dive with sharks the next morning which meant a very early departure. Gillian made the three of us a "to go" breakfast and gave it to us to put in our fridges for the morning....which brings me to the room....each of our rooms had a fridge stocked with various drinks and a list of prices, lovely furnishings, comfy beds with big fluffy duvets, a very nice upscale bathroom (en suite), hair dryer, a fan for when it's toasty and access to a beautiful balcony to watch the sun set, the moon glow, the stars shine, and the sun rise! After returning from dinner, we were once again greeted by Gillian and invited for a night cap. She really made us feel welcome and at home. Breakfast the second morning was wonderful ... in addition to a nice selection of fruit, cereal, and yogurt, we were each offered a hot breakfast including made-to-order eggs. Delish! We really couldn't have asked for a better accommodation. Some people were just cut out to be in the hospitality industry and Gillian is definitely one of them!

Room Tip: I think all but maybe one of the rooms has access to a balcony.....make sure you get one of the balcony rooms! We spent a lot of time out there enjoying the beautiful view!

I spent two nights at Moonglow during February 2014. The rooms are excellent, well appointed and comfortable. The bathroom was excellent. The view was absolutely spectacular. From the balcony you can see most of False Bay and all of Simons Bay and the harbour and town of Simonstown. Breakfast was excellent and everybody was friendly and helpful. I will be back to stay there when I need to travel to Cape Town.

We, two friends from the UK, and my husband and I stayed here for four nights.As we live in the heat of the winelands it was wonderful to stay in Glencairn where it seems the wind blows most of the time keeping it cool. The guesthouse was all we wished for - near Groot Constantia, Kirstenbosch, Boulders, Hout Bay and Kalk Bay with all its excellent restaurants. The sea facing rooms are lovely and waking up in the morning with the sun shining on the sea and sitting on the balcony sipping the very good coffee is something we will remember.Great towels! And good beds and breakfast excellent with a welcoming and friendly hostess.

What a stunning place. Beautiful view of False Bay and very relaxing. We felt very welcome and the room was clean, bathroom lovely. The balcony was a lovely extra and we had spent a wonderful evening enjoying the views. Breakfast the next morning were very good and the host was very kind and we felt so at home.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony

We loved staying here. The rooms were great value for money, especially the ones with a balcony. The beds were really comfortable with crisp linen, stunning views, great hospitality and breakfast. Highly recommend. Very clean and well looked after. Great to have a fridge in the room too! And and wonderful bathroom!
