Reviewed yesterday NEW

Wonderful reception (incl a bottle of champers in the room). Hosts Jonathan and Sue were very friendly and welcoming. Very comfortable room with exquisite views over the Bay. Breakfast on the veranda was top class with the best views (north facing) in Cape Town. Thanks Grosvener for a happy anniversary experience

Grosvenor Guest House was great, very homey and the owners were great and accommodating. They offered us champagne with breakfast which was delicious and fresh made. The rooms were clean and tidy, however was just hot at night - if you are a picky sleeper, there is no air-con here.

We lived in Appt. 4, which has a large terrace and so makes it possible and enjoyable to spend time "at home". We liked the personal, relaxed atmosphere and the friendliness of the manager and her staff.

We were lucky enough to spend the weekend at the Grovenor. We had such a delightful time from the moment we checked in. Sue & Jonathon are such wonderful hosts and made sure we were happy and comfortable at all times. The breakfast is to die for!!! Just kept going back for more. Rooms super clean and well decorated :)...

Very pleasant stay, but absence of air con could be a problem in hotter months. Good view. Convenient for penguins and cape. Attentive staff and good breakfast. We only stayed one night. There is not a lot to warrant a long stay.

Great friendly guest house. Great views of False bay and the Naval Base. Even more pretty at night with all the lights. Sue and her team work hard to make you welcome and they succeed. Rooms are light and airy and newly decorated. Clean and modern with a nautical twist. Beds very comfortable and linen good quality. Breakfast to order...

We stayed here for 3 nights and we were very impressed. We had room 1 which was a large room, decorated very tastefully with lovely views of Simons town harbour. The 2 men that work there, Johnathan and James were great. They were very helpful and very friendly, especially James. Breakfast was lovely with a large choice. There's an honesty...

Very big and beautifully decorated room with a cute garden. Room had all we needed and more and it was nice and relaxing place to stay. Quiet yet central location and had rooms on both sides of the road. Excellent breakfast with nice ocean and harbour views.
