It's been a while since I was here, but I thought I should take the time to finally write my review.
I loved the nautical theme of the hotel. The room was excellent. I had a nice little balcony with a couple of chairs overlooking the harbor, it was fantastic. The staff were very helpful, setting up my car rental, always giving me great advice on where to eat and what to see.
The location was perfect. You are within walking distance of Boulder Beach, where you can see African penguins, that was great...not to mention it's a very scenic stretch of coastline. I rented a car one day and took a drive down to the Cape of Good Hope and practically had the entire place to myself on a gorgeous day, it was something I'll never forget.
The area around the hotel is nice, with a wide variety of restaurants and shops. Simons Town was very quaint and picturesque. I ate breakfast every day at Bertha's, directly below the Quayside, and it was pretty decent. If I had one negative thing to say about Simons Town, it would be that the food was generally not very good. But I'm reaching there. I don't remember there being a gym at the Quayside, maybe there was, but if so, I missed it.
I had a great time in South Africa, and the Quayside Hotel had a lot to do with it. I'll always have very fond memories of enjoying a glass of South African wine while sitting on the fantastic little balcony and staring at False Bay.
If you're in Simons Town, this is the place to stay.
