We are within walking distance to the central of Simon's Town where guests can experience the country's finest restaurants or cafes and a leisurely stroll through town experiencing the wide array of shops and vendors offering something for every personal taste.

The guest house offers six spacious bed and breakfast rooms and two self-catering cottages, each individually furnished and decorated with high quality percale linen and featuring a wide range of modern amenities. Each of our accommodation options feature stunning sea views.

Delicious homestyle breakfasts are served on our deck overlooking False Bay.

Area Information:

Simon's Town is situated 40 kilometres from Cape Town City Centre and is the last village before Cape Point. Situated on the slopes of the mountain on the coast line of False Bay this tranquil haven offers much for the discerning traveller. Simon's Town, a popular tourist destination with a rich naval heritage is home to several historical buildings. Perfect spot to explore the Cape from.

The village with its cobbled winding roads are a hive of activity with shops, restaurants, vendors, stalls and tourist attractions. Simon's Town has some of the very best seafood restaurants in the country and has become a firm favourite amongst gourmands. Interesting antique, clothing and bric-a-brac shops will keep you browsing for hours.

The African Penguin colony at Boulders Beach are a 'must see' for the visitor to Simon's Town. Possibly the only beach where you get to swim with African Penguins.

Property Facilities:

The Grosvenor facilities include an outdoor swimming pool for guests to enjoy a leisurely swim after a day of activities, a braai area, lock up garages and secure off street parking, airport transfers on request, laundry service on request, and a lounge/entertainment area leading onto the patio overlooking False Bay. Guests can enjoy a sundowner from the honesty bar in the dining room.


The many attractions and activities in the area and surrounding include the African penguin colony, great white shark diving, whale watching, bird watching, historic sites, water sports, hiking trails, swimming beaches and Cape Point Nature Reserve. Our water sports are great fun including water bikes, kayaking, SUP boarding and wind surfing. Visit Cape Point and Cape Point Ostrich farm and reptile park as well as the famous Scone Shack for tea.
Work from "home" in this beautiful environment is the biggest attraction of all.

My 2 teens (14 and 12) and I desperately needed this personal getaway and most importantly, quality time. Despite living only 25km from this absolutely amazing guesthouse, it felt like we were in a different part of the country altogether. We visit the West Coast annually; however the Covid19 pandemic and Lockdown L3 restricted us from our familiar pleasures.
Our Suite with a kitchenette had the most Amazing view of False Bay and the Naval Harbour, our own balcony with much needed privacy. The guesthouse dressed with the swimming pool's sapphire blue waters, spacious outdoor lounging areas and coupled with cleanliness, I consider as simply the best! The best! Unexpectedly so, as the pictures we see on the site, does not do this venue justice.
The Sunrises will sweep you off your feet. And the Sea air will take your breath away!!!
Simonstown offers so much to see and do; plan accordingly to make the most of Boulders, paddle bikes out to sea, Cape Point around the corner... Activities and attractions are plentiful! On that note, we got to enjoy the Ostrich Farm and Reptile Tour – my Tweens and I thoroughly enjoyed this!
Sue, Debbie, Paddy and Jonathan are remarkable hosts; welcoming, super friendly with warm hearts - we need more of you kind Souls in the hospitality industry. Thank you for sharing your Love. May the Universe pour out its positive energy to you fine people. We’ll definitely see you again soon rather than later.
Well, that said, I leave it to you viewers to experience. Tell me how YOUR stay was ;)

What’s not to LOVE My sister and I spent a perfect 3 nights at the Grosvenor which is immaculately maintained, beautifully furnished, in a great location with a pool and ocean views. Yummy breakfast served on the balcony which is situated off the intimate but spacious visitors’ lounge. Our bedroom/sitting room was so luxurious and comfy with en-suite and balcony. Sue, the manager, James and Jonathan whose warmth, kindness and happy smiles really made our holiday so special. We were lucky enough to meet Blessing & Grace who quietly and efficiently keep everything sparkling. Thank you all Diane & Jean

A lovely, welcoming guest house just off the main coast highway. Convenient, lovely and friendly, helpful staff. Highly recommend. I was traveling alone and I felt safe and comfortable at all times in this guest house.

After months of gloomy Cape Town weather and in need of some much-needed RR with the wife, I remembered that I had a received a gift to stay at the Grosvenor Guest House. With both our birthdays being in September we booked for the weekend of mine. On arrival we were warmly welcomed by Sue who managers this gem of a guest house and Jonathan the chef and multitasker A bottle of bubbly accompanied us to our very spacious; airy and comfortable suite. My wife immediately went to the balcony kicked off her shoes and took in the magnificent views of this naval town. The Grosvenor is quaint with that old school charm, warm and inviting with all your modern amenities needed for a very comfortable stay. Jonathan whipped up breakfast in the mornings and Sue gave us the rundown of what’s hip & happening in the naval town. It was the weekend of the Simons Town regatta, so we had a wonderful view from our balcony to take pics and view at our leisure. Simons Town was alive and bustling, the weather perfect for walks to go experience the local fare and we even managed to add in a day drive to Cape Point & surrounds. We absolutely loved the experience of coming “home” after having dinner in town, having our coffee on the deck overlooking the glassy ocean. I would highly recommend popping out to the Grosvenor Guest House in our Naval town for a very relaxing, refreshing little break. On our doorstep but like taking a leap into a hassle free, arty, historic and chilled environment. A huge thank you to Debbie Smuts and her team for a wonderful experience & stay at a real gem the Grosvenor Guest House.

Lovely, helpful people (James, Jonathan, Blessings, Sue) and great view from this guest house. We stayed in Room #2 with windows facing the harbor. Firm bed, spacious room, good breakfasts, and helpful suggestions about things to do on the southern cape. We'd come back!

It really is a must see town, there is a scratch patch with the most beautiful stones. Boulders beach is a fantastic spot to relax and enjoy the penguins and plenty of shops to browse, plus a very nice yacht club with plenty of spots to choose from to grab something to eat.
