We had the unequalled pleasure of enjoying a weekend at this impeccably styled guesthouse. With elevator access, level floors and spacious rooms, my wheelchair-bound son’s movements throughout the guesthouse were effortless. Our room was luxurious and inviting, with the most exquisite view from our bed of the early morning sun shimmering across a vast blue ocean. Lynn’s warmth and hospitality...

The guesthouse is modern and immaculately maintained. Our room was great and we enjoyed the view. Breakfast was very good. Lynn was wonderfully helpful - she was able to check us in early and was a great help in assisting with organizing our activities in the area - making suggestions on where to eat and what to do. Thanks Lynn!

We did have a fantastic stay at the Simon's Town Guest house and were welcomed warmly by Lynn. She helped us with whatever we needed. The room was very nice, stylish and clean on the ground floor with a lovely ocean view. Breakfast was great as well. We can only recommend a stay there!

Amanda has created a beautiful guest house that has the highest quality finishes and views to die for; she and Lynn really make you feel at home here. Early morning starts to see the sun rise across False bay are worth the trip alone, and watching the moon rise in the evenings is equally stunning. The hill is definitely a...

This guest house is wonderful. My family recently stayed in two rooms here, both were immaculate and the beds were comfortable. The rooms have a great ocean view and are beautifully decorated. A wide variety of delicious food was served for breakfast. And the complimentary wifi internet worked well. I highly recommend this guest house!

We spent 4 nights at Simons Town Guest House. From the moment we arrived we felt special and cared for by the incredibly helpful and friendly staff. They made us feel relaxed and pampered before and after our big day and no request was ever too much trouble for them! The views were spectacular and what was a real novelty...

We found this guest house through Trip Advisor and were BEYOND happy with it! The room was super spacious, clean, comfortable, and had an amazing view. Amanda, the owner, was super helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. She tried so hard to organize a Great White dive trip for us, but the weather made it difficult. When...

We had a lovely room with an absolutely magnificent view over the Indian Ocean for our three day stay.There are loads of things to do from Cape Point to Cape Town via the penguin colony at Boulders, which adjoins Simon's Town. Incredibly helpful owner and staff who, apart from booking decent restaurants, also arranged a visit for us to Cecil...

We were originally recommended to try another Guest House in Simons Town; that proved to be full and they advised us to speak to Amanda at the Simonstown Guest House, this was very good advice. We only spent one night here as a stop off on our way from Cape Town, down to Cape Point and from there back up...

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at Simonstown Guest House for three nights on our most recent visit to Cape Town. Simonstown is a different animal from our usual haunts around Camps Bay or downtown Cape Town. Quiet, a bit windy and with limited dining options, still it's an area we really enjoy and the nighttime quiet...
