We arranged for a late check in and our room was open and ready for us when we got there. I knew there would be African Penguins - but I was happily surprised there was a pair with three babies in down living under the steps up to our room. They are rather loud and you do smell bird poo...

The room was very comfortable and clean. The hotel has a penguin nest right under the steps for the rooms in the second floor rear. The hotel owner is very concern with the preservation of the penguin. The parking lot in front of the hotel is next to a penguin breeding conservation program. One can get to see the penguins...

I really liked this hotel: it was situated right near the penguins, which is great. It's also well managed and checkin / checkout was made very easy. The place was clean and comfy, and reasonable value. The included breakfasts were also quite good. I would recommend to others.

The lodge rooms are rustic beach style. room 15 has a view of the ocean. this is not a luxury resort by any means, but who cares...

It was amazing to see penguins whilst eating breakfast, and I also had a laugh seeing one of them run across the Lodge patio - barely half a metre ahead of me! They truly are adorable. This said, I am not overly enthused about the Lodge. Annie was extremely flexible, as I encountered some issues conducting the payment online so...

This is a quaint little place that is very peaceful. Great stay! Great food! Great people!. If you need a driver to take you around, as to use a guy named Morey, he was not only a driver, but a great tour guide also.

Awesome location and very economic nightly rate that incuded a full cooked breakfast. Simons Town is a great launch pad for Cape Point and this hotel is situated on the south of town, with special visitors even meeting you in the car park at night (local Pengins). Some reviews were critical of the facilities...I've paid a lot more in other...

What a fantastic spot! A 2 minute walk to the beach where you can sunbathe next to a penguin! The kids loved it. The staff where very friendly and helpful and the food delicious. The rooms are simple and basic but clean and the bed was very comfortable. Boulders Beach is one of our favourite spots in the world and...
