    Fabulous place! Book a sea view.
    This is a fabulous place. I stayed in a huge room with a large balcony with gorgeous water views. The whole inn is lovely, and the staff is super accommodating and so nice. I would surely stay here again.

    Loved it!
    Great small hotel, furnished tastefully, gorgeous room with gorgeous view, friendly, accommodating staff, good breakfast. Note that you have to pre-reserve dinner a day in advance, since they come to the 'house' and prepare it in front of you in the kitchen. A bit of a walk to Simon's Town historic mile (up/downhill).
