The best B&B I've been to in CT. I loved everything about Rocklands Bed & Breakfast. From where it's situated (away from hustles and buzzles of cities/towns) - a nice quiet area, the friendly staff, the beautiful colours and artwork in the rooms, the magnificent views through the windows and from the decks, the spacious rooms, the bathroom...on my goodness! The kitchenette, the TV (lots to offer for couch days). This is place I would love going back to. It was absolutely perfect for our quiet anniversary celebration. Thank you, Erica, for your kindness in giving us the best room. You made our stay amazing.

Wonderful uninterrupted view and saw a few whales to. Could get used to waking up to that every morning. Breakfast was the best we had on our travels in South Africa. Truly awesome experience and loved every bit of it. Definitely going to go back, for sure.

We loved this location! It was so perfect for sunrise viewing! The staff were friendly and helpful. We enjoyed having breakfast on the deck overlooking the gardens and False Bay. The gardens were beautiful. This location was great for access to other scenic trips. We would highly recommend this property.

We stayed in a small apartment with a perfect, beautiful view over the coast. It was clean, beautiful decorated and the host was very friendly. They served us a really tasty breakfast in the apartment so we could have breakfast with a look all over the coast. The apartment ist a bit too small for 4 people. We are a family with two almost grown up sons, so the sofa where they slept was a bit small and uncomfortable. But nevertheless it was a perfect stay for us for one night. A nice pool area with a view to the sea, and a green, pretty arranged garden makes this guesthouse complete and perfect! Thank you!

Thanks Katrin for this very useful review, after your stay with us I have changed the room to accommodate only 2 adults and 1 child as I could see that it was not ideal for your two boys. Thanks for staying with us!

The owner of this apartment is super unfriendly - I’ve never been this disappointed ever … we arrived and were supposed to pay several hundreds of euros extra so we can sleep in two separated rooms (which we booked anyway - We even called before to make sure!). Confused person.

This reveiw is factually incorrect: Firstly I have never spoken to this particular person so he's opinion of me being unfriendly is unfounded. Unfortunately the guest who did the booking booked a family room for four adults, as soon as I received the booking I tried contacting the guests whose telephone details were incorrect. I then made numerous attempts to contact the guest via the booking forum Expedia. There was no reply from the guest. Knowing this was not appropriate i closed an extra room for them however on arrival the guests refused to pay the vastly reduced rate I was prepared to give them. My staff and I actually went out of our way to ensure our guests would be happy!

We stayed one night at Rocklands while visiting Simons Town on our tour round South Africa, I have to say it was probably my favourite place we stayed. We were in the Dolphin room, which had lovely sea views from two sides, we slept with the curtains open and woke early to a beautiful sunrise coming in through the window. The breakfast was excellent, the mushrooms were absolutely to die for, the nicest I’ve ever had! The staff were friendly and very helpful, nothing was too much trouble. I would definitely stay again, probably for longer next time and would definitely recommend Rocklands to anyone wanting to stay in Simons Town. Thank you for your contribution to an excellent first time visit to South Africa.
