My husband and I spent one night of our anniversary weekend here! We loved every minute. Rika was very gracious and ensured we had everything we needed. Beautiful room, breathtaking views and especially enjoyed our delicious breakfast outside with views of the sea! We would recommend this guesthouse as the attention to detail ensured that we had a wonderful stay!...

This guest house has not only a beautiful view to the seaside, but also an excellent service. That started already when booking: detailed and very friendly information via email about when to come and where to go. A very warm welcome and an outstanding breakfast made the stay a pure pleasure.

Tucked away on the hillside is this little gem with beautifully appointed rooms. Beyond excellent staff and the breakfasts are wonderful. A cute patio for breakfast starts the day well. Convenient to Simons Town and Fishhoek beaches.

Nice facility but a little back from the road and way up a hill. Nice view if the smoke is not obscuring the water as it was when we tried to visit. Amanda (the owner) was very pleasant but after watching a constant parade of firetrucks coming from the Cape Town direction offset by a parade of boats on trailers...

Had three nights here and the room was very good with views to sea. Breakfast was excellent each morning and the service from Amanda and her team generally was very helpful and friendly. Quiet at night. One word of caution is that the steep hill up to the property is well....very steep. It does provide a nice view though. Simons...

Beautiful location, lovely rooms with sea views, scrumptious breakfasts plus a welcoming host. The highlight of my stay was sitting in the bath watching the moon rise over simons town beach. This is a really great place to stay and our experience was faultless... just perfect. This is definately in my personal top 5 places to stay in South Africa....

Was nice and they went out of their way to help us. Rooms were comfy and clean. Close to the sea for walks. Roads are very steep. Breakfast decent. Tv was sub standard with very limited channels and poor quality.

We only spent two evenings at the Simonstown Guest House but loved our room and the beautiful view. The rooms are decorated in more of an African than beach-side theme. The bathroom had a lovely bath with sea views - and candles were left out for an evening bath. The bathroom was spacious and very modern. The breakfasts were delicious...

Stunning views and rooms! My wife and I are quite fussy when it comes to good accommodation. This was outstanding with regard to the beautiful clean rooms with stunning ocean views, execellent hospitality from the staff (Especially Rika who accommodated our every need) and the overall Guest house itself. 5 out of 5 - Will definitely be returning!

I wanted to stay somewhere quiet outside Capetown for one night and to enjoy the coast. Rika has a lovely guest house, the rooms are spotless, newly decorated and a good size, and the views a fabulous. Really good quality breakfast too. Highly recommend this as a place to stay.

Thank you so much for your thoughtful and positive comments and recommendation. A good hearty breakfast is always a good way to start the day which is why guests can have not just one, both both a Continental and a Cooked Breakfast if their appetite allows :) We hope we can welcome you back here again some day in the...
