Perfect weekend getawayPosted Mar 18, 2016 on Hotels
Long weekend during business trip. Perfect place to relax and close to all amenities/ local restaurants/ lots to do in Simon's Town if you can bear to tear yourself away from the large, stylish and very comfortable suites with amazing views. Immaculate home from home, exceptionally friendly and helpful staff, no detail left to chance. Experienced chef should you wish to dine in with notice. Will definitely return if there is opportunity to do so.

Great boutique hotelPosted Mar 8, 2016
This is a modern boutique hotel that really works. The friendly professional team pay attention to every detail and have an evident pride in what they do. The hotel offers real quality while being totally unpretentious. The location, high above Simonstown, offers superb views over False Bay. The setting is peaceful. The rooms are light, spacious, very well appointed and comfortable. Dinner , tailored to individual needs, was perfectly cooked and presented. Excellent value for money.

Excellent placePosted Feb 23, 2016 on Hotels
Excellent place. Reasonable sized room. Aircon and overhead fan. Good staff. Good breakfast. Nice view over bay. Did not sample the evening meal. Quite a reasonable choice of restaurants within 25 minutes walk. The only downside is that if you do walk down into the town it is quite a climb up from the main street. Quite handy for an early start down to Cape Point/Cape of Good Hope to beat the day trips from Cape Town. Penguin colony just down the road.

Great staff and a lovely luxurious hotel.Posted Feb 3, 2016 on Hotels
We wanted a high quality room in Simons Town for four nights. Whilst on the outskirts of town all amenities were within a 10 minute drive and the quality of the hotel more than made up for this. The staff were wonderfully engaging and even went out of their way to provide me with an early breakfast (outside of normal times) to enable me to leave early for game fishing. I highly recommend this lovely hotel as long as you do not expect to be right in the centre of town. Would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful modern boutique hotelPosted Jan 29, 2016 on Hotels
Magellan’s Passage is a modern boutique hotel perched on the hills above Simon’s Town. This eco designed property is not to be confused with other hotels in this area. It has superior accommodation and that all important personal service that is only found in top end boutique hotels. All rooms are fabulously appointed with a combination of minimalist design and high end bathrooms. Facilities provided in our room were well thought out and fully functional. We even had a turn down service each evening. The views are stunning from the adjacent nature reserve, downtown Simon’s Town and over False Bay. The in house catering was exceptionally fresh and of a very high quality. This complimented with a fully functioning bar set Magellan’s Passage out from the competition. The most impressive aspect of our stay was the exceptionally high level of customer care delivered by our host Darwin and his well-trained team. Their service was relaxed, attentive, and seamless and what you would hope for in a high end establishment. Nothing was too much to ask for with advice that was both thoughtful and informative. Overall with its close proximity to Cape Point and the attention to detail provided by the front of house team, “Magellan’s Passage” is one of the best properties to stay when touring the Cape Peninsula.

Loved it!Posted Nov 29, 2015 on Hotels
Great small hotel, furnished tastefully, gorgeous room with gorgeous view, friendly, accommodating staff, good breakfast. Note that you have to pre-reserve dinner a day in advance, since they come to the 'house' and prepare it in front of you in the kitchen. A bit of a walk to Simon's Town historic mile (up/downhill).

Wonderful hotel on hillside near penguinsPosted Nov 13, 2015
Pros: Everything - location, condition, service
Location: Short walk to Boulders Beach. Easy drive to the Cape. Long walk or short drive to Simons Town and the harbor.
We loved this hotel. The location is about a 5 minute walk up the hill from Boulders Beach where the penguins are. We had a seaside room and the view was terrific. The room was spacious and super-clean. The staff was wonderful from when we arrived to when we left. Breakfast was great. Parking was convenient. We would absolutely look to stay at this hotel again.
