“A real 5-Star treat !”
Reviewed 10 April 2016

From great breakfast to great hosts to great views across False Bay, Gilian and Glen and the rest of the family ensured that this was our finest B&B experience ! A 100% recommendation for anyone touring the Cape Peninsula...

This place oozes class! It is situated in an elevated position overlooking Simons Towns bay. It has decks that provide beautiful vistas of the bay right over to Cape Pointe. Most of the rooms open onto the deck are spacious and nicely furnished. Breakfast is served on two large communal tables and are a real sociable affair. The place is run by 2 sisters who are very easy to talk to and provide a host of information.
The whole house has a feeling of quality and class. If you stay here you will not be disappointed!!

This is our second stay at Moonglow and we will be returning. Gillian is a lovely host and the guest house is fantastic. We had dinner in a very good fish restaurant in nearby Simonstown, recommended by Gillian.

Thank you for your warm hospitality. You made me feel "home" - away from home and I enjoyed the breakfast chats. You have a beautiful place with great views overlooking the ocean and i will come and visit again.

Moonglow Guesthouse is an exquisite establishment, well situated up on the hills with an amazing landscape of the bay from the balcony. Our rooms were very clean snd very nicely decorated. It seems there was given attention to every little detail in the property. Breakfast was delicious. Gillian and her sister are super kind!
Me, my sister and my brother enjoyed our stay very much and hope to come there again!
