Made to feel special from the very beginning. The staff are simply superb and very accommodating. Perfect location for Penguin admirers. So very peaceful and the views from the balcony are superb. Each room has a quirky appeal and can only be described as a feast for the eyes. Perfect start to our honeymoon. R&A.

The guest house run by a lovely couple, extended their help above and beyond and their hospitality towards your needs, make this a place to...

I recently stayed in the Cheriton gueste house I would defnitely recommend it. My room was cosy and comfortable. I could start every day with a balanced breakfast. The staff was friendly and the service efficient. A bonus point is that it is within walking distance from everything in Simonstown.
