Excellent property with great hosts and fantastic home cooked breakfast each morning. The rooms are spacious and beautifully appointed. One thing to be mindful off is that this property has a large amount of stairs to climb, but if you are able to do this, then this is the place to stay. Highly recommend and would stay again.

The single, most important, feature of Grosvenor Guest House is its Manager, Sue and, then, because of Sue's influence, her staff. Sue went 'beyond the call' in her endeavours to make sure each guest had detailed information about, or directions to, activities to suit their personal interests. We thought this was unique and we were pleased to have met Sue. The suite we were given was charming and characterised the "Romance Suite" perfectly (we counted nearly 90 hearts in one form or another). All was discreetly presented and the room was very comfortable; the terrace and garden were perfect for lazing in. James and Jonathan, the two staff members we had most contact with were extremely helpful and delightfully informal, without being intrusive in any way. We read somewhere that the breakfasts are legendary and we absolutely understood why. We looked forward to them every day and thoroughly enjoyed them in the covered terrace, overlooking the Naval Base and to the sea beyond. We stayed for two weeks and would happily visit again if the opportunity arose. Thank you, Sue, and your staff for a lovely stay in Simon's Town, giving us the peace we so needed when we arrived.

サイモンズタウン駅から徒歩で20分程度、ペンギンのボルダーズビーチまで10分程度です。兎に角、景色が最高です。朝食も最高に美味しいです。チェリー酒も無料サービスで頂きました。次回もぜひ泊まりたいです

Die Unterkunft lügt günstig zu Kap Horn. Ein verschlafenes Örtchen. Der Ausblick von der Terasse ist ganz nett. Wenn da nicht die Werft wäre, wäre der Ausblick perfekt. Leider ist öfters Stromausfall in Südafrika gewesen. Das Notstromaggregat von der Werft ist hörbar. Das Personal ist liebevoll. Wir fühlten uns da sehr wohl. Für längeren Aufenthalt von mehr als 1 Woche könnte es zu langweilig dort werden. Nach Kapstadt benötigt man mit dem Auto ca 45 Minuten. Als Ort ist die Pinguin Beach sehr empfehlenswert.

Lovely B&B in nice Simon's Town. The room was spacious and the bed very comfy. The manager Sue, was super and very helpful and she arranged things for me. Jonathan, James and the girls were fantastic. The did everything to make you feel good and satisfied. Breakfast was included, but unfortunately not many options for vegans, no plantbased milk or yoghurt to the cerial. The had a big fruit bowl though, that I appreciated. I would highly recommend this B&B, I hade a wonderful stay and will happily return. Lisbeth from Sweden
