Very big and beautifully decorated room with a cute garden. Room had all we needed and more and it was nice and relaxing place to stay. Quiet yet central location and had rooms on both sides of the road. Excellent breakfast with nice ocean and harbour views.

Thoroughly enjoyed our short stay. Our room was large with a great view of the bay. They have a cosy common room with a nice deck overlooking the town and naval base. The staff were excellent and serve up a cracking breakfast. Sadly the current drought stopped us from enjoying the pool. Will be back!

We hired the 2 bedroom self-contained accommodation for our family of 4 (2 teenagers) for a week . The Unit, or shall I say house, was beautifully styled, clean and was very comfortable for the 4 of us. It had everything you would need for your time away, right down to the washing powder and coffee for the plunger. The...

From the moment of arrival I felt at home amongst friendly people that really cared about making your stay as comfortable as possible. The view across the False Bay is awesome and having the substantial breakfast enjoying the view is the best way to start the day.

We stayed for 2 nights at The Grosvenor and had a wonderful time. Jonathan and Sue were fantastic hosts and really friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The room we stayed in was lovely and spacious and the view from the balcony at breakfast was super. The food was really good with a great selection.

The Grosvenor Guest House is a fantastic place to stay. The view is breathtaking, the accommodation great and the people are fantastic. We stayed in a 4 bedroom house but there are single rooms as well.

Very much enjoyed relaxing on the balcony of room 4 - great views. Good breakfast in the morning. Sue and Jonathan were able to arrange an early breakfast on one occasion. The steps up form the main road are quite steep for those on foot.
