We have stayed here 5 or 6 times. The accommodation is superb, with a lot attention to detail. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The views of False Bay are stunning. I would recommend this B & B to anyone. This B & B is not really suitable for young children.

A wonderful, clean, neat and very comfy place to stay over, the hosts go out of their way for you too and as for the views..... ah well ! The road is not well signposted so it's a little difficult finding it at first. Parking is not covered but its safe. The indoor pool is most welcoming on hot days.

We had the most wonderful stay at The Boat House. Theresa made us feel welcome the moment we got there and the accommodation is absolutely beautiful. We looked forward to breakfast every morning as the view from the dinning room is stunning and Theresa always bakes something special to go with your breakfast.

An absolutely delightful stay. The Boathouse decor,attention to detail and comfort is impeccable. Housekeeping is spotlessly taken care of. Every detail to ensure our comfort was thought of, items such as a well stocked fridge, quality coffee and snacks. The breakfasts where substantial with ample options, beautifully prepared and presented. Views over the bay are stunning and the hosts are really lovely people. Overall highly recommended and value for money.
