Had a drink before visiting the penguins and went back for lunch as the food being served looked good, but we were fooled. Food was OK, but not special. First meal in Cape Town area that disappointed. Fish and seafood was frozen. Felt like tourist food for guests who were passing through. Toilets can be a guide to an establishments...

This is just steps away from the Penguin beach hence 4 stars. However, the beach is not open 24 hours so you can't walk to beach before 8am to see penguins. You might see a few penguins in the parking lot or boulders nearby. The accommodations are fairly dated. The floor, walls, beds etc. are very old and could use...

From our room could see the sea - just . Room just ok...small....ripped curtain...hole in bath panel....old bathroom fittings. Worst of all is that the restaurant is closed .at 5 pm..which means a trip into Simonstown we did find a good fish and chip shop there but prefer to eat close to where we are staying. Breakfast is adequate but...

I had thought that we more or less would have penguins in our room with "sea views from the balcony". They sadly failed to mention that you had to look across a street and a parking lot in order to see the sea!! I had expected something more after having stayed at some really cheap but wonderful places ahead of...

This guesthouse is not recommendable. Our room was old. plaster falling down from the walls and a strange odor in the air. Breakfast was rather poor (if you want a second cup of coffee or a juice you have to pay extra!!!). Price is much too high for such a poor quality.

Had a great stay with Boulders. This is the closest hotel to the penguins. Highly recommend staying here and as a bonus there is a man that sells hand made beaded animals which are amazing and great value just next to the hotel entrance. Our room was very clean, a little outdated but that didn't matter because it suits the...

We were on a business trip with meetings in Muizenberg and decided to stay here because of the location. Early morning walks were really special. The accommodation is okay. The only service we got was via email before we arrived as there are only staff on duty from 08:00 to 18:00 As we arrived at 19:30. Same when we checked...

With the kids otherwise occupied for once, we took the opportunity to spend two days at our favorite corner of the peninsula. Ike many who visit the beach, we have stopped at the Lodge for lunch and speculated abut staying over. It more than met our expectations. The service was warm and efficient, the accommodation comfortable and very convenient for...

Perfect location, right beside the penguins. Rooms are old school but very cosy. Restaurant caters for everyone's taste and the staff are very professional and friendly. The owners, Frans and Zaria really make you feel at home! Try the Belgian Waffles!!!!! Many people complain about the restaurant closing time, but I think that gives you a perfect opportunity to take...

Front desk person on arrival was unfriendly and provided limited information. On site restaurant closed even though their hours said they would be open. Breakfast service was slow and order was messed up. Had to ask repeatedly for coffee. No reserved parking for hotel guests. Competing with beach goers for parking spot. View from room was lovely but room small...
