Lovely location and view. Large room with comfortable bed. Good breakfast.
Bit tatty around the edges. Too many bits and pieces in the bedroom and bathroom. Greeted on arrival by a pleasant manager. Someone else was around at breakfast who may have been the owner but no introduction.
Had a wonderful stay. The staff were excellent, friendly and efficient - nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was beautifully presented and plentiful. We had a wonderful bedroom with an amazing view of the harbour. We would highly recommend this B&B to friends and family. FAB-U-LOUS!!!
Everything was perfect.
We had a lovely stay at the boat house. Everything was perfect and we loved every little detail. Staff was super friendly and helpful, our room was awesome and the view at breakfast stunning. We highly recommend staying at A Boat House when in Simons Town.
Everything was perfect! We only regretted that we only stayed for one night.
The Boat House is very beautiful with great views overlooking Simon's Town. The room is very nice, comfortable and clean. The breakfast is just amazing. Very good service and super delicous. Thank you for hosting us.
Everything was perfect.
- nice B&B with view over the navy marina & the bay - awesome view from breakfast deck - good breakfast and very friendly staff - close to the penguins - well furnished and stylish - free orange or carrot cake and whisky at the shared guest space as well as free coffee & tea, kettle and fridge in room - spacious room and bathroom
- we had the captains room, as it is located directly under the kitchen we had some noice from the movements upstairs starting at 6:30/7am in the morning from the venue staff preparing breakfast (so if you plan to sleep-in better choose one of the other rooms) - no restaurants or shopping opportunities nearby, you always need to take the car as the venue also sits on a hill
