“Don't miss this one”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

Great position, great offering. Enjoyed a wonderful one night stay at Rocklands Seaside B&B – too short, but what a visual treat. Mother Nature wildly played her wind song while we enjoyed a superb home-cooked breakfast. Good value. Only downside was lack of an operating wifi facility (explanation given when asked was that signal only works in main house), and next time, would prefer to stay in main building and not the annex.

What a wonderful place! If you are looking for a place with a view, this is it.
It's a very welcoming place and well-run by a friendly couple.
The décor in the dining area is something to note and I took away some ideas :)

Excellent place, near the pingouins of Boulders; very beautiful view on the sea. Delicious breakfast (mushrooms, tomatoes, cereals, fruits salad ...) in front of whales !. Thanks to Erica for your smile and your good mood.

My wife and I spent 1 night at Rocklands, which is on the edge of Simon's Town, a small sea-side village some 40 mins from Cape Town. We watched the full moon rise over the bay, reflecting off the sea - it was really special. The room was clean and adequate. The hosts and breakfast were lovely.

We had a very nice welcoming. The room is really beatiful as well as the whole house and has a very good seaview, with a bit of luck you can see the whales while you are laying in your bed. Breakfast was accurate and big enough. You need a car to go to the city.

Rocklands B&B was fantastic. In a good, quiet location in Simon's Town. Close to Boulder Beach and the penguins!

The rooms are beautiful and have everything you need! Wifi in rooms too!
The staff are so friendly and go out of their way to look after you! The breakfast is fantastic, the girls know how to cook!

Room Tip: The three rooms down the stairs are great. Beautiful views and private!

we stayed 2 nights at Rocklands in August. The view from our room was breathtaking over the sea with an amazing sun rise.The breakfast was excellent with a good choice of cereal, croissants,fresh fruit and yoghurt, full english cooked breakfast and a choice of hot and cold drinks all included in the room price. There was a fridge in the room stocked with soft drink and wine which could be purchased if required and tea and coffee facilities. the room and en suite were spotless and the breakfast room also overlooked the sea. the harbour did whale and shark cage trips and bolders beach is within walking distance to visit the penguins. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.You really need a car for transport as buses are not that frequent but we were recommended to use a local tour guide who became our personal taxi as the village restaurants were a good walk away as it rained most of the time during our visit but we would still return again. Thank you.
