We found the owners to be very friendly and helpful. Room was beautiful and we had a great view of Simon's Town . The breakfast was good as well. The family droom we stayed in was so spacious. Perfect for a family with smaller kids.

15 On Penguin Guesthouse? A great home away from home! The wife, our 2 children [aged 23 and 17] and I had reserved a spacious family room for 2 days. Wonderful accommodations: spacious, comfortable, well-equipped with the necessary mod-cons. Apart from the TV with satellite channels, we plugged in our HDMI laptop and were able to watch our favourite series...

We reserved two nights. Counted on advertised $58 a night. Arrived on day 2 due to flight change. Owner charged us just one night but it was still $100 or so. Not quite sure about this. Staff and owner super nice and gracious. Need a car or uber to get there.

After spending a lot of money on a 4 day Safari at the Kruger Park we needed to find accommodation that was reasonably priced, clean, in a great location with helpful staff and 15 on Penguin was everything we needed and more.
