Only 1 channel on tv and wifi didn't work, a lot of people staying and hanging around outside our room but apart from this I can't speak more highly of the staff who were very kind and helpful to us.

We stayed the night at Simonsberg after a wedding we attended. The owners were so hospitable and the room was great. We were accommodated with all requests. The breakfast in the morning was more than sufficient and very tasty.

The guesthouse is located in a quiet neighbourhood. The hosts were extremely welcoming, we felt at home from the first minute, best hospitality we've seen in SA! The room was excellent with a great shower, lovely decorated. Just excellent!

The breakfast and the rooms were top quality. The staff was also extremely helpful and friendly when we required any form of assistance. The location was not a problem as it was 5km away from the wedding's venue we were attending and Melody even helped as in re-ironing our outfits :)
