“Amazing!!”
Reviewed 16 October 2013

Had a lovely time at this hotel. The rooms was always cleaned with fresh towels everyday! Breakfast was gorgeous and they made your eggs and bacon to how you like.
I really didnt want to leave this hotel and had the best time!!
The location was good, but to go into Cape Town centre you had to catch a train which was about 45 minutes to 1 hour long! But still worth staying here!

Perfect location for early morning shark excursion departures. Just 5 minutes from the dock. Very clean with nice linens and ocean/beach decor. Great views from the rooms facing the marina. Helpful staff.

Room Tip: Room facing the marina are quiet, sunny and offer good views.

My husband and I spent one evening at Quayside and really enjoyed their hospitality and superior location. The hotel is situated directly on the water and is close to all the downtown shopping and eating in Simon's Town. If you happen to be Great White diving while there, the location is perfect because you are within steps of where you launch from. The room was very clean and everyone at the front desk was so friendly and accommodating. I would not stay anywhere else while visiting Simon's Town!

We stayed at the Quayside for a week in late June. We chose the Quayside based on its location to the pier as we were doing a week of shark cage diving and it was barely a two minute walk to the pier, so the location is fantastic if you're diving. Based on the photos from their website I was expecting a very nice hotel. The ceiling was cracked, the door to the mini bar was broken and the bathrooms needed some work. The front desk staff was good although twice they missed giving us messages and one message was to say our dive had been cancelled for the following day due to bad weather and we got up at 5:30 am for nothing.

The breakfast buffet was okay, if a tad pricey, with a good selection to choose from. The Bertha restaurant just below the hotel is very good and the prices are reasonable, as is the Seaforth restaurant by Boulders Beach. The Meeting Place across the street is also nice but the best value is the Salty Sea Dog, right by the pier. Excellent food and good service.

Make sure to ask for a room with a balcony because the views are fantastic. We would stay here again just based on the great location.

My wife and I stayed here 2 years ago and loved it. Its always a risk going back but it was a risk worth taking. We loved it again! We stayed in a balcony room and loved every moment. It was great to see Pearl still here on the front desk she is always friendly and welcoming.
We will be back again the next time we are lucky enough to be in South Africa!

A few years ago, I stayed at Quayside for business. I remembered it as having a quiet charm and outstanding staff. I just had the pleasure of returning on vacation and I was not disappointed. The view of the marina, bay and mountains across the bay was breathtaking. I remembered it being a bit awkward to use the breakfast vouchers while there before and was pleasantly surprised to find that they now have their own breakfast buffet with a wonderful buffet spread as well as an omelette station. The nice extra touch to the rooms is that they have in-floor heaters so that your feet stay warm when getting up in the middle of the night. Unfortunately, it wasn't installed in the bathroom as well. The only complaint that my companion had was that the hair dryer wasn't up to her standards. I would definitely consider returning there on any occasion.

Room Tip: Get a second floor room if possible. The views are phenomenal!

I scheduled a small conference with colleagues at the hotel during the week but was so impressed with my room, the view, the staff’s attitude and behaviour that I phoned my husband inviting him to rather join me for the weekend instead of going back home. Our room and view from the bed overlooked the mountains, ocean and yacht club. The hotel is located very central and walking distance from restaurants and shops. Take the train from Simon’s Town to Kalk Bay (the current stop and go traffic with road works in the main road to Kalk Bay can be a bit of a nightmare!) for an alternative experience and enjoy travelling along scenic road!
