“Tip Top Accommodation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

This is a guest house you cannot miss out on! From friendly smiles on arrival, to inspiring decor and fresh open spaces, this guest house definitely ticks all the boxes. If there ever was a home away from home this is it. You can always see straight away when the owners of a guest house really take pride and pay careful attention to every detail, this is not a hobby for them, it's a lifestyle. This was my first visit to this beautiful part of the world and one to remember, thanks to everyone involved for creating this wonderful experience.

Kind Regards

Room Tip: The rooms are all sea facing, you can't go wrong.

Thank you for your fabulous review. You are so right. False Bay has so much to offer everyone. Be sure to watch out for the music festival in Simon's Town in September. We look forward to welcoming you back at the Grosvenor soon.

I stayed for a night at Grosvenor Guest House and it was utterly sublime. I stayed in the self service apartment during winter. It was warm, beautifully and tastefully decorated and clean. The people ho ran the guest house are friendly, welcoming and fun. you can tell it is a family run guest house, as you immediately feel at home on arrival.

Oh and let's not forget the beautiful views!

It is definitely my go to spot in Cape Town!

This delightfully furnished, spotlessly clean and well-equipped guest house provided a perfect getaway in our own city for me, my girlfriend and a couple of our friends. The views across False Bay are spectacular, and can be enjoyed whilst munching on a delicious breakfast on the balcony. Our rooms were clean, comfortable and luxurious; the biggest issue was forcing ourselves out of bed in the morning! Situated near Fish Hoek beach, and a short drive to Kalk Bay and Muizenburg, Grosvenor Guest House is the perfect place to stay to enjoy all the hidden gems of False Bay!

Room Tip: Ask for one of the rooms with balconies overlooking the Naval Base and Harbour!

Thank you for your wonderful review. We look forward to welcoming you back soon so that you can discover more about False Bay. Perhaps a great white shark dive or a snorkel with seals?
Look out for the Simon's Town music festival in September. Should be great fun.

We stayed for 2 weeks in the honeymoon cottage and loved it. It was clean, comfortable and had amazing views. The staff were very nice and professional. We'd like to say a special thank you to Sue for everything she did for us especially her company and sharing her favorite pub and restaurant. We'd recommend Grosvenor House to anyone.

I travelled with the wedding party to Simon's Town and we literally booked out all of the rooms. I did not deal with the staff of the guest house at all as all our room keys were handed over to the groom-to-be who directed us to our rooms.

My room is high up in the top manor house. The Twin room was relatively small, with a private patio area at the back and a sliding door leading from the room to this pretty little patio. The bathroom was also relatively small with only a shower. All was very clean, tastefully decorated and comfortable for two strangers sharing.

The large lounge area of this top manor house has the most incredible sea views that just made the stay so amazing. It is an open plan living area and kitchen. The filter coffee is great. We did not have time to enjoy the breakfast the next morning, but other guests said it was really great, fresh and tasty.

Parking was a bit of an issue as there is no real parking lot, you park in the street in front of the guest house.

Room Tip: Rooms in the top Manor House has spectacular views with private patios. Parking is very limited! O...

Thank you for your review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Grosvenor House. You are right, parking is a challenge to us as we are situated in a residential area. We usually organise a shuttle service for larger parties who attend weddings etc in the area. Guests catch the train to Simon's Town and then HGT tours collect and transfers to the guest house and the wedding venue.
Thank you again for taking the time to review the Grosvenor House and we hope to welcome you back soon.

Staying in the delightful, cosy 2 bedroomed cottage over the road from the main house, we immediately felt right at home - a warm welcome and a tea tray with homemade rusks - it's that sort of place. The cottage is very private, well appointed, very clean and has all the comforts of home (it also has a bath). Decorated in stunning Design Team fabrics, it has comfortable beds and great linen. We enjoyed the great view over the bay from the large balcony which runs off the lounge room. The next morning we wandered over to the main house and sat out on the sunny balcony to enjoy a delicious hot beakfast and that spectacular view. Lots to see and do in this beautiful area. Thank you for a great stay - 10/10
