In need of an upgradePosted Feb 17, 2015
Pros: Good views over Simonstown
Cons: The property needs updating.Others have mentioned this.
Location: You need a car. The property is set high up above the town.
We stayed 2 nights. As other guests have mentioned the apartment is in need of an upgrade.Old furniture, carpets worn, in need of painting and TLC. An odd setup. To access the apartment you walk through a room where the maid does the ironing.You then enter through another door into the lounge area. We were not given the key to this door which means that members of staff can just walk into the apartment.There is a further door off the lounge which is an office.We were sitting in the lounge and the owner came from the office, walked through and walked back through the lounge later on. Considering the price we paid we were disappointed.

Fantastic viewPosted Nov 11, 2013
Views to die for, but bit of a steep walk back from town, and room had a slight damp smell. Hwever the host was wonderful and very helpful. And breakfast was excellent.

Magnificent viewsPosted Mar 9, 2013
A superb venue! The view from the lounge and the bedroom was amazing. The bedroom was delightfully furnished and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious and well presented. The owners made us very welcome.

Hard to beatPosted Feb 19, 2013
Pros: The view and the layout
Cons: Lots of steps and double locking gates
Location: Great little town in a sheltered location. If you love The Cape Peninsula there is no better location.
Great views from sun trap balconies, sheltered position in summer, superb towels and daily linen change, lovely breakfasts. All round a remarkable bargain. We were two couples and had rooms off a dedicated lounge which was absolutely ideal. The only downside is endemic in the advantages, it is very high making a car pretty well essential and the access is labyrinthine even with Google mapping.

Excellent B&B in Simon's TownPosted Dec 17, 2012
Pros: Clean, spacious and terrific hosts.
Cons: Having a fabulous view requires a long hike up from the shore, which we underestimated...
Location: At the end of a beautiful series of switchback roads above the harbor
A beautiful b&b with beautiful views of the harbor. Owner & staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Room was spacious & breakfast was terrific. We had to depart early in the morning but they happily accommodated us by serving the full breakfast 1.5 hours ahead of "official" starting time. Helped arrange transportation & were just genuinely nice folks. Would definitely stay again.

THE ULTIMATE BREAKFAST VIEWPosted Mar 6, 2012 on Hotels.com
Albotross house is up on the side of the mountain over looking False bay. An excellent place to base yourself to visit the Cape/ cape point. Leon and Sandie where excellent hosts their knowledge and info of the area helps to make up your mind on what you want to see and do. Breakfast was outstanding with the view as well it one of thoes places you will always remember.

Zu empfehlen - mit kleinen AbstrichenPosted Nov 11, 2011 on Hotels.com
Ausgezeichnete Aussicht. Sehr gutes Frühstück. Auto unbedingt erforderlich, um zum B&B zu gelangen. Kompliziert in die Zimmer zu gelangen aufgrund höchster Sicherheitsvorkehrungen.
