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).

Awesome and amazing!
I went to Cape Town for a solo getaway. I stayed at this hotel for 11 nights, and couldn't have asked for more. The hotel is run by 3 guys, Darwin, James, and Sam. They will look out for you and your every need. They made dinner reservations for me and looked up and printed out info for some of my every day adventures. I also had the chance of meeting the owners, who are a lovely and warm couple. Included breakfast each morning was delicious. Room was super comfortable. And the view, breathtaking. I ate all my meals on the terrace :) It is about an hr from the airport and city centre, but honestly, wouldn't have stayed anywhere else. Driving here is easy (even for those of us used to driving on the right side of the road), and makes everything accessible. Would recommend this place to anyone, and hope to stay here again on my next visit.

Outstanding View & Service
Outstanding view of the ocean side, bay and waves coming ashore on the beach. Simon's Town just down the mountain side where the naval base, beaches and coastline can be seen. Breath-taking whether on the sea view side or mountain side. My daughter and I stayed during the winter month (July) and fortunately had the "house" to ourselves. Darwin and Samuel far exceeded their need to please with casual comfort, recommendations and personal service. Choose this place over transiting from Cape Town. We stayed two nights in order to go on a shark cage dive. Well worth the cost because we were treated as if royalty. If driving (we had rental car) there is ample parking. Hotel/Inn located in residential housing so ask for directions, yet you will experience the most awesome view. Several tiers/floors where MP offers a bar, computer, TV, restaurant (pre-order), and in room fridge-coffee service. Splurge on the sea-view where we drank early morning coffee overlooking the bay/sea view. This is a small Inn and personal service is fantastic. Book early and often. We plan to return. Darwin, GM, is also a chef so plan to ask him to prepare a special dinner!!

Little hard to find it, but worth every penny...
Top notch service, beautiful view of the bay and clean, modern style. We loved the appearance of the hotel from inside and out. The building is new, very clean and furnished comfortably with modern amenities. The open concept combined with comfortable seating and great views of the ocean and harbor were just the beginning. James and Darwin were incredibly welcoming to my wife and I. Warm and friendly, they showed a great enthusiasm for making their guests at home. Darwin made us an incredible dinner and breakfast on site in the sleek and modern kitchen which is open to the lounge area, so it feels like you are being catered to at a friend's home. A very modern and fancy home that is. We would recommend staying on the property for meals as well if you are there as a getaway. The food is great and eating on the patio is fantastic. All in all, this place is a great value. IF you get a chance, the luxury suite on the top floor is fantastic with a private balcony overlooking the ocean.
