Went to see penguins and we were not disappointed. Excellent location, walking distance of town, restaurants and penguins. Lovely views from hotel, with beautiful décor in rooms. Could not have been looked after better by Sue and the staff. Hope to return!

Wonderful reception (incl a bottle of champers in the room). Hosts Jonathan and Sue were very friendly and welcoming. Very comfortable room with exquisite views over the Bay. Breakfast on the veranda was top class with the best views (north facing) in Cape Town. Thanks Grosvener for a happy anniversary experience

Grosvenor Guest House was great, very homey and the owners were great and accommodating. They offered us champagne with breakfast which was delicious and fresh made. The rooms were clean and tidy, however was just hot at night - if you are a picky sleeper, there is no air-con here.
