    Wonderful B & B. Owners and staff couldn't do enough for us, booked restaurants and gave advice about area. Excellent location, excellent breakfast and carrot cake at teatime! Like a 5 star hotel. Would stay there again. Highly recommended.

    This was our first time to overnight in Simon's Town. We received a warm welcome, fresh accommodation and a wonderful breakfast. Can confidently recommend the Boat House. The Captains Cabin is the room to book.
