              Fantastic hotel”

              Great hotel, clean spacious rooms, perfect location on harbour front. Fantastic large balcony with beautiful views across the harbour, we really enjoyed sitting there after the days sightseeing eating our fish and chips. The hotel is well placed for boulders beach and cape point. Free car parking just be careful where you park or the car will be totally covered in bird droppings.

              We decided to visit our favourite Seaside Town for perhaps the last time before we emigrate to the UK! The Quayside Hotel is the perfect getaway Spot in Simonstown, and the view over the harbour are exceptional! This is definitely one of the places we will miss the most when we leave SA for good! Thank you to the Aha Staff for making our stay memorable! Our room was Beautiful, and clean, and ever so comfortable! Breakfast at the Saveur Restaurant was Awesome! Situated so centrally to all the great Locations like Boulder's Beach, Cape Point, Scarborough, Kommetjie, Fish Hoek & Glencairn, with the Naval Dockyard and all of it's comings & goings - This Little Hotel is a Jewel! Don't Miss It! Thank you Aha and the Quayside Staff and Management. Gary & Mandy Thomson Table View

              Perfect location”

              This hotel is in a perfect location on the quayside of Simon's Town. The room we had was a superior room and was well spaced with good furniture, the bed pillows were too hard for me but this is a preference and not for everyone. The room air conditioning works well and is an individual unit per room, therefore the heat exchange unit is on the balcony and a bit noisy. We did not use the breakfast facility as we left earlier than it started. There are a few restaurants below the hotel which serve good food and the quayside is full of boats offering good boat trips. The staff are excellent and the lovely girl who helped me print my flight vouchers was wonderful, perfectly suited to her job. I would certainly stay here again.

              Comfortable bed, fantastic ocean view and close to nice restaurants and cafes

              It was lovely! The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful in helping me to make my transport arrangement and carrying my luggage up the stairs as there is no elevator. We booked a room with Ocean view and it was the right choice. We get to enjoy the wonderful view of the Simon's Quayside with all the yachts and boats. The room is very clean and the beds are comfortable. The only surprise was the non availability of towels in our room, at the time we checked in. The staff said there was a unexpected delay from the laundry. Fortunately, the towels arrived when we get back to hotel in the evening.

              Hotel is in a great position to see the Cape Peninsula. We had a great view of Simon's Town harbour. Walking distance to several restaurants and coffee shops etc. Staff very friendly and helpful. The only downside is if you are directly over the restaurants on the harbour, it could be nosey at night.

              Nice view over the Marina”

              We stayed at Simons Town Quayside Hotel for the one night whilst visiting Boulders Beach and Cape of Good Hope. The hotel was well situated in the centre of town and the staff and cleanliness were also good. Breakfast (buffet) was very nice although a little chaotic as I felt that they were one member of staff short with a large trip also staying there. We would have preferred to have had a double bed as opposed to twins pushed together with separate mattresses, but not sure I will mark it down for this. Charging for Wifi seems a little more common in SA than I had expected, but I would have expected this to be free baring in mind various local restaurants offer this. There wasn’t much to do in Simons Town and would probably stay in Fish Hoek if I returned to the area, but the view over the harbour was lovely and the local restaurants were also very nice too. Proximity to Boulders and Cape of good hope and the free parking also excellent.

              Getting to this hotel was difficult and we got stuck in traffic due to the road works. It would have been nice to have been notified about this in advance possibly with alternative routes to the hotel. The room was big and clean enough however the wifi was poor. During the night there was a power cut in the town, which meant the additional wifi I had purchased could not be accessed and the warm cooked breakfast that we had paid for was cold. While I don't blame the hotel for the power cut, I was disappointed that no compensation was offered for not providing a warm breakfast or electricity in the room and no apology was made either. This hotel has very poor customer service.

              Our room was overlooking the harbour and we enjoyed watching the activities from our nice terrace. The room was bright and large, a nice treat. There were many restaurants within walking distance and we could park our car. The area attractions were easy to reach, Boulders penguin colony and the Cape of Good Hope, both a must. We would recommend this hotel to others, a nice change from staying in Cape Town and not difficult to reach the airport.

              The view from the room and the balcony, the staff and the proxim ity to restaurants and attractions

              I had a wonderful and relaxing stay and could have easily spent a few more days there. The hotel is a wonderful fiond for thoise who do not know about it. The view is one of the highlights - looking out at the quay and the yachts and boats is very special and the staff were warm and friendly and helpful. And just metres away are a great selection of eateries. Among the many attractions, highly recommended, is the tour of the submarine just across the bay at the naval base - most fascinating and at a mere R40 an hour very well spent. Delightful volunteers (all former naval officers) offer wonderful anecdotes and information. - Orielle Berry
