Loved this place. Simple, no common parts like bar or restaurant, just reception with some chairs, but the rooms are spacious and clean, good bathrooms, and location is great. So much to do explore outside the door. Good bars & restaurants.

What a view! Clean rooms. Only negative is the lack of covered parking. Walking from the open parking to the hotel, informal traders were harassing us. The location and views made up for this. Will stay there again

We enjoyed our stay at Simon’s Town Quayside Hotel very much. A great location and we had a room with a great view! The people at the receptionist were very friendly. Good restaurants near by and the penguins at walking distance!

Staff not interested in providing any level of politeness. No hotel services, no breakfasts recommended Betty’s next door for food which was equally poor. Room was clean and great view. But reception rude and disinterested.worst place we stayed in 10 daus

Quayside is always pleasant, from the personal welcome to the peaceful rest times. Ideally situated in the quaint public square of Simon's Town, clean and spacious, calm and relaxing. Breakfast at Bertha's Restaurant was a bonus.

The room was dirty, dusty with spider webs. Complained about the dirtiness of the room, nothing was done. Instead, the supposedly clean towels now had hair follicles on them. The sheet on my bed had a stain which was not washed or changed for the duration of my stay.
