Absolutely beautiful view of Simon's Town. Clean spacious, and quiet. Will recommend for anyone that doesn't have knee problems, steps a bit steep for older people, but other than that it was perfect! Thanks a lot

Rooms comfortable, clean and spacious, view excellent from balcony overlooking the town and bay. Nicely furnished with good facilities for self catering. A bit tricky to find in the warren of streets above Simonstown but once located is in a great spot.

It's a great location and the views are awesome. The accommodation is spacious and in a great position for easy access to the town. The rooms feel a little dated and a number of little things that could have made it memorable were missing, like the bed isn't comfortable and the fan noisy( no aircon).

The sizes of the rooms were good. There were two bathrooms for two bedrooms wich was also enough. But it should be all a little bit cleaner. For example: The Toiletpaper roll was placed on the toilet brush an it was sprinkled in yellow coulor. So werden were not actually absolutely happy with this accomodation!

Rooms were generously sized and comfortable. The bathtub and kitchen appliances were on the basic / ageing side but apart from that the views and balconies were fantastic, and the bed and couch were very comfortable.

We enjoyed 2 nights in the beginning of January in beautiful Simon's Town. In the Albatross Guesthous, we found a generous appartment, run by a very friendly family. The outlook from the appartment and the terrace is fantastic! We had a perfect stay!
