Property was quaint and pleasant, we arrived during loadshedding so there was a little delay checking in. Room was good, however the water pressure was a little low and it took a while to get warm (but considering loadshedding, I wasnt to phased). Receptionist was helpful and lovely, pleasant experience all round.
What a great place to get away from it all. Staff are so friendly and helpful. Rooms are basic with everything you need, really comfortable bed and excellent wifi. Such a cool spot, with the most beautiful beaches right on the doorstep.
Staff very friendly. The rooms if possible can do with a bar fridge & a microwave.also guests should have reserved parking. Overall enjoyed our stay. Taking a walk everyday day to watch the penguins was priceless..
Beautiful hotel! The views are beautiful over the ocean. Check in and check out was quick and efficient. The Restaurant is closed at the moment, but you can still eat your take aways there, which was really nice. Especially on the deck. There are penguins everywhere. Definitely a highlight! If you like a small bite to eat and coffee there is a deli.
We stayed at Boulders Beach for 1 night in the 5 person room. It was an absolute delight. The room facilitated everything we needed and the coffee shop below is excellent for a light meal and a delightful coffee with the most amazing view. Boulders has spectacular sightseeing opportunities along the walkway with open views across False Bay, it's defiantly one to add to your calendar.
We really enjoyed our stay at Boulders Beach Lodge. Staff were helpful and friendly. Our room had everything one needed for a comfortable stay. Overnight the location was quiet and peaceful. View from the hotel verandah overlooking the sea was amazing.
There is no place like Boulders Beach Lodge in Simon's Town. It really felt like home away from home. The communal areas are inviting and guests make use of it without being in each other's way. The Lodge was fully booked, and there was a special birthday celebration the evening of our stay. I would also like to host family and friends there sometime in the future to share this unique experience.
We stayed at this hotel just over a decade ago, and loved it. This time around their appeared to be no management. On the 1st night there was no hot water - we were told to wait an hour as a recently departed family looked like they all had showers... On night 2, the water cut out half way through my shower... Night 3 was better - plenty hot water! I borrowed a hairdryer from reception and while it worked, the repair to the wiring (decorators making tape) left much to be desired. The sink had a crack in it as well - but the deal-breaker was the poorly masked and mouldy sealant around the Bath. There was a burglary on our last night - and no sign of any 'management' on the following morning to reassure patrons. Indeed, we had no choice but to leave cash and our key at the desk before check out - telling one of the girls who was in the hotel's employ that we had done so. The best thing about this hotel is the location. This re(visit) to that premises was a mistake. It eroded the pleasure and nostalgia associated with our previous trip there. …
Stayed here before in 2010 and gave it a great review. No air con or TV but we knew that. It had a great restaurant then but we knew it had closed. Great location 50 yards from the Penguins. We stayed for three nights. Check in was OK on arrival, we were early and room wasn't ready, no problem. We could leave bags in reception. We had no vehicle ( you really need one if staying here) but the Lodage had no arrangement with any local taxis ( use Uber Ok) . It has menus from takeways in reception but didnt know if they delivered to the hotel. The Hotel could provide beer or wine but you had to ask receptionist a couple of hours before so they could put it in the fridge. Hotel locks up at 8pm but you can still access rooms. So the rooms were as expected in you have 10 , 11 or 12 be prepared to climb steep wooden steps with no rail on one side and be prepared to hump your own bags. Rooms were as advised except for bathroom facilities, cracked sink and hot water was a gamble. On first night there was none. Reception said just wait an hour as other guests must have used all the water. Second night it ran out during my wife's shower. Seemed to have real plumbing issues with airlocks etc as well. Management were uninterested. Breakfast we were told to order the night before so we did, Yoghurt, muesli and fruit for my wife and scrambled egg for me. Arrived at breakfast and no-one new. Ok so after 5 minutes we reordered, it took 20 minutes for tea and coffee to arrive in cardboard cups and another 20 for breakfast. Scrambled egg was tepid and rubberised, the fruit in the other was 3 slices of tinned peach. On last night a guest below was burgled and had two laptops and handbag stolen by an intruder. Someone burst into our room at 1130pm to check if Ok, not sure if guest or management. Following morning nothing, no contact from hotel checking we were OK , nobody to checkout so just left cash estimate for beers. The on site cafe is run by keen youngsters but they have no structure so its a bit haphazard and menu is very limited. We avoided breakfast after that and had excellent breakfasts at Cafe Penguino a 10 minute walk away…
We spent the last night of a three-week tour of South Africa here. It was the perfect spot to relax and take in a last sip of South Africa’s amazing wildlife and beauty before our 34-hour journey home. Our hotel room was perfect for us: spotlessly clean, excellent bed, with light and airy older world charm. The hotel offers comfortable indoor lounge areas and a big covered verandah where guests can enjoy coffe or breakfast accompanied by an unobstructed wide view of the Indian Ocean. Best of all, if you walk out the front door you’re steps away from the Boulders African penguin reserve, which allows you to walk along boardwalks and down to sheltered coves to see penguins, hyrax and the giant boulders of their beach habitat. If you get up early, you can beat the visitor crowds and enjoy a quiet swim in the cove with curious penguins checking you out. I wish we’d had more time here, and we’ll definitely stay here next visit. Highly recommend!…
