Great view from the rooms and from the balcony. Interesting design. Very good breakfast. But just a few power sockets - very inconvenient.

My partner and I had an incredible stay at A Boat House. If I had to limit myself to commenting on one thing (which is very difficult), it would be that the staff are beyond compare. They are all so courteous, friendly, helpful, etc. They were very accommodating to all of our requests, helped research and arrange transfers for us last minute to explore Cape Point (where they looked into at least 4 providers and gave us detailed quotes), and were just all around great people. The property and room itself is amazing. It is well decorated and exactly what you picture when you think of Simon’s Town / a seaside town. Breakfast is phenomenal with a great continental spread paired with tasty hot breakfast made on request by some lovely ladies. I would recommend staying here a thousand times over and will definitely do so again if I am ever in the area. Thank you!

Stunning views and excellent service!

This is a wonderful B & B overlooking the harbor. Walking into the B & B is like walking in on a gangway and being aboard a yacht. Essentially the rooms are crew quarters and the décor has the feeling of a ship. Look out harbor and see the naval yard and yacht club. The breakfast is made to order. Engage with the host and hostess and they will give you an orientation of the area and suggest places to go in town or around the area. There is a pool and recreation room with a pool table. The wifi is strong. You won't be disappointed staying here.

This is one of the nicest hotels that I have stayed in - from start to finish every tiniest detail was covered. The staff were brilliant, the views were stunning and we felt that we were VIPs. I won’t give any spoilers as you should go and experience this special place for yourself - you will not be disappointed! 10/10
