Loved this very curio hotel- collections abound. Every thing well thought out and immaculate. Owners interesting and would definitely return. Can't imagine a better place to stay in Simons Town. Take the boat ride to Cape of Good Hope. Again, a major highlight. A gem of a place.

Our third visit in seven years and it just gets better. The rooms all have a naval theme and are clean and well appointed. Breakfast is perfectly cooked and more than enough for even the hungriest visitor, the "Just Nuisance" honesty bar is a delight to visit (and it has a good selection to choose from). The Cheriton is in...

Having come from Sydney I was taken by the tranquility and quaintness of this beautiful guesthouse. The attention to detail is evident across all aspects of this guesthouse and the hosts Dirk And Denise are wonderfully hospitable. I have no hesitation in recommending this as a must stay location if you are in Simons Town.

It is the little things that define a stay, and having spent a week at the Cheriton it is impossible not to be captivated by the panoramic and breathtaking views. Denise and Dirk go that extra mile to ensure that that nothing is left unattended. They are friendly and full of handy facts for the traveller. A real winner!

Excellent Staff, superior Service, very nice rooms 10/10 Points. If you want to see the Penguins and learn the nice culture in Simons-Town this is the place to stay. Stunning view of the entire Bay. Each room has a different Story to tell.

Having stayed here on business for 2 weeks in the last months both Denise and Dirk have been excellent in accommodating us even at short notice. And even being as good as finding us alternatives when there had no availability

Denise and Dirk make you feel beeing part of the Family. They are very friendly and if you Need any Kind of Support, you can ask them for help. During breakfast on the Captains Bridge they came around and e.g. told us stories about the countryside and when ist the best time to go and see the penguins. We stayed...

we like cheriton very much.this B &B is on a very quiet street and a bit far from the center of Simon town, so you had better have your dinner then come back to hotel, this is the only shortcoming. Dirk is very helpful and humorous and the hotel is decorated so beautiful and it looks like a museum. we...

Denise and Dirk B, Owner at Cheriton Guest House B&B, responded to this review

Thank you very much for your kind words, this is very much appreciated. You are correct that we are about a 10 minutes walk or 1 minute drive to Town. Our big advantage is that we are the closest B&B to the penguin colony and Boulders beach. One off our best restaurants is just a short walk down the road....

Dirk and Denise Brinkman run an exceptional guest house. Their attention to detail made the start of our holiday fantastic. The drawer in our room contained all the little things you need - even a small pair of pliers! The atmosphere relaxed, the breakfasts delicious, the room spacious and clean. We would love to visit again.

We have just stayed in this wonderful place and cannot recommend it highly enough. The owners Denise and Dirk are so friendly and helpful, especially good with restaurant recommendations and things to do in the area. The room was very nice (next to the quaint private house "pub" bar) and very comfortable and there's a beautiful little pool with a...
