This is a great bed and breakfast with some amazing views of Simons Town and the surrounding area. Great service, the rooms are just what you need and easy access to all things in the area. Great staff and extremely helpful. Enjoy your stay.

Room Tip: The rooms all have sea views.

This is a b&b with a difference, not only because of the fabulous setting, high on the hillside overlooking False Bay and Simon's Town. The owners have taken hospitality to a whole new level with touches you would only expect at a boutique hotel. Their staff are wonderful and clearly have been very well trained - they make you feel very special. We would not hesitate to recommend The Boat House as a base for exploring the region or simply for switching off with a good book on the private balcony watching the activity on the bay.

The Boat House NYE 2016/2017

One of the few places which allowed us to book one evening only during the peak season. :)

We booked the "Chart Deck" room which was neat and cosy. Unfortunately there is no airconditioning in the room.

At A Boat House you will get value for money, be in a great location & receive warm friendly service. Lovely breakfast too! (loved the Caribbean muesli)

Only 1km away from Boulders Beach! There is also a small indoor heated pool.

We will visit again.

We often stay in small hotels and guest houses
This was the best service, setting, decoration, food, detail and owners got it right.
Staff well trained.
Will visit again.
Only comment is not enough outside lights outside upon arrival.
And deck could have a bit more privacy from other guestis
