A super location overlooking the harbour and bay. You can walk into the town but there are streep steps or road to negotiate however a couple of minutes by car and parking by harbour. Very comfortable bedroom with super large bed. Our room had two comfortable armchairs where we could sit with a drink overlooking the bay, also tea/coffee facilities and TV. Breakfast is served on a terrace, great choice of hot and cold choices. There is a lounge and also and outside seating area and small pool. Car parking available. There are a number of steps up to reception but help is given with luggage. Thanks Sue and Jonathan for making us so welcome.

The Grosvenor was great. It's close to town and the beaches as well as being a good value. The room was very clean and comfortable. The staff, especially Johnathan were incredibly helpful and friendly.

I cannot say enough good things about our stay at Grosvenor Guest House. Sue, our hostess, was warm and welcoming. Rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. The veranda, where a delicious breakfast is served each morning, has a beautiful view! It's a fantastic choice and location. Loved our stay there!

We had a stop in Cape Town on our way to a Safari and our travel agent selected the Grosvenor for us. We had a 4 night stay there. Debbie, Sue and the entire staff were very pleasant and accommodating. Each room was a little different and were very clean and spacious. The views to False Bay were spectacular and having breakfast each morning overlooking Simon's Town and the Bay was one of the highlights of our trip. Boulder Beach (penguins) was only a 15 minute walk away and Cape Town and Cape of Good Hope were each about an hour drive so the location was fantastic. Highly recommend the Grosvenor for your next Trip to the Cape Town area!

We received a warm welcome from Johnathon when we arrived. Centrally located. Beautiful views out over Simons Town. Very clean and comfortable. Big spacious rooms with big en suite bathrooms. Well equipped for self catering. Has a gas top stove and lights for load shedding. I would definitely stay here again.
