We stayed here 3 nights on a birding tour. It was perfectly located for seeing the penguins on Boulder’s Beach and a day trips to The Cape of Good Hope NP. Our beautiful, spotlessly clean room had a fabulous view of the ocean. The breakfasts were scrumptious, and they accommodated my gluten allergy perfectly. We felt warmly welcomed and well cared for. Definitely recommend!

If you want to stay somewhere close to the penguins, as someone else said, it doesn’t get any better than this. And that was what was most important to us. Even if the beaches are closed, you can see the penguins on the walkways that connect them. You are literally staying next to the entrance to Boulders Beach. You can pretty much see penguins at any time of day. If you want a good nights sleep you may want to bring ear plugs. The penguins woke us up at 3:00 am. But we didn’t mind. It was all part of the experience. It is a short walk to Simonstown which we did as well. We spent most of our time enjoying the penguins because that’s what we came for, and it was fabulous.

There is no where else in Simonstown I would want to stay. From the moment I walked in, I was greeted with such warm hospitality. Nikita the Manager is wonderful and so kind - she made me feel right at home. The views were breathtaking... waking up and opening your curtains to this view of crystal blue water that went further than the eye could see, it was just magical. The owners have put so much thought and detail into making your stay as comfortable and as memorable as possible. Thank you Nikita and Amanda for such an incredible stay!!! I didnt want to leave! :)

Wow! Immaculate inside and out.... the rooms are spacious, modern, equipped with everything you could wish for and so tastefully decorated. The breakfast selection is superb and they'll tailor it to suit. Amanda and Nikitta are so welcoming, knowledgable and helpful- nothing is too much trouble. They're passionate about the Cape and want you to have the best time. If you stay here, you will. Can't recommend it enough. I'll definitely be coming back! Thank you!❤👍😘
