We stayed in room 5 just nuisance. Everything was amazing, the staff take super good care of you. They are friendly and helpful. We went back with the kids a weekend later and stayed in room 1 lady emma hamilton. We stayed some hours extra no extra cost and booked in earlier the next weekend and will definitely stay longer sunday to enjoy the sunday braai again. The bar area, food, rooms everything is just great. If you visit simons town this hotel will be nr 1 on my list. I will go back there everytime im in simons town. If you visit here, dont forget to ask about the Ghost walk with Andre.

Small hotel with restaurant in the center of a small historical town. The interior of the hotel refers to the old times, everything is clean and stylish. The staff is friendly, the beds are comfortable, but try to avoid sleeping in rooms with windows to the street, it can be very noisy.

Lord Nelson Inn was one of the best hotels on our South Africa trip in December/January. The service was brilliant and we felt heartly welcome. Great room with balcony and a view on the bay. The breakfast was delicious and the building has a lot if historic charme. It is a great place to stay for visits at Cape of Good Hope and the penguin colony. Thank you for hosting us!

Decent pub in the main street in Simon's Town. Pub was affected by the electricity shortages but the landlady found some candles for us! Reasonable pub bar with sports TVs. We went out to eat so the only food we had was a cooked breakfast which was good. plenty of interesting nautical memorabilia around the pub.

We enjoyed our stay. Loved the location not far from Boulders beach and the room was clean. Breakfast was good. Although at first we were not comfortable with parking outside, we were comforted that the location was safe.
