Luxury accommodations in Simon's Town

Posted Jun 13, 2017
Pros: The room was quiet, spacious, and very comfortable. Large modern bathroom. Staff were very professional and friendly.
Cons: No suggestions.
Location: Stroll beaches and watch surfers. See penguins on Boulder Beach. Visit Cape of Good Hope and Cape Town. Visit Robbens Island.
Luxury accommodations in Simon's Town, South Africa, on False Bay and about an hour's drive south of Cape Town. Fantastic views of bay and surrounding mountains from our balcony. Easy and fascinating drive to Cape of Good Hope and other beach towns on the Cape Peninsula. Quite, spacious, very comfortable room. Staff were very friendly, attentive, courteous, prompt, helpful, and informative. Good restaurants in Simon's Town, but upon request Magellans Passage will also prepare a customized dinner that is excellent. Spent five nights there and highly recommend.

Excellent hotel beautiful views

Posted Mar 7, 2017
If you don't like walking up hills take an uber! Hotel is set high up with a remarkable view. Excellent service from Darwin and his team especially James who couldn't do enough for us. 5*food, spacious accommodation, impeccably clean and stylish. Only a few rooms so very exclusive. We stayed 3 nights, could've stayed another week. Handy location for the penguins and the Cape. Thankyou for a memorable stay!

Nice quiet hotel with great views of the bay.

Posted Feb 9, 2017
This is a very nice, quiet, layback hotel. While the rooms are very comfortable, the staff really sets this place apart. They make you feel like you are the most important person to them. They were more than happy to fulfill any request we had. They even provided suggestions on driving routes & things to see. This hotel was the perfect place to wrap up our trip to Africa.

Perfect weekend getaway

Posted 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 hotel

Posted 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 place

Posted 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.
