We stayed for 2 nights at The Grosvenor and had a wonderful time. Jonathan and Sue were fantastic hosts and really friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The room we stayed in was lovely and spacious and the view from the balcony at breakfast was super. The food was really good with a great selection.

The Grosvenor Guest House is a fantastic place to stay. The view is breathtaking, the accommodation great and the people are fantastic. We stayed in a 4 bedroom house but there are single rooms as well.

Very much enjoyed relaxing on the balcony of room 4 - great views. Good breakfast in the morning. Sue and Jonathan were able to arrange an early breakfast on one occasion. The steps up form the main road are quite steep for those on foot.

The Grosvenor is a brilliant guest house in an elevated position above Simon's Town with views of the naval base - so there is always something interesting to look at. The room and bathroom were both excellent but I couldn't find a channel on the TV and the free wifi allowance was inadequate. Sue and her team were delightful -...

The guest house is in a very good location to visit Boulder's beach and Cape Point, will need a car to get around. The accommodation is excellent, clean and spacious and well provided with amenities. The pool is sufficient for a dip after a hot day of sight seeing, hiking.

An excellent Bed and Breakfast that easily exceeds most hotels that I have stayed in. It is within a 5 minute walk from the Town. The rooms are clean, large and have great facilities. The breakfast is faultless and caterers for any diet. The main reason for the Grosvenor’s success is the staff that cannot accommodate you enough. Nothing is...
