We enjoyed our stay at Simon's View guest house. The facilities were clean and well maintained. Eleanor was wonderful host picking us up from the train station, offering an assistance when needed, and immediately addressing our needs. The accommodation was comfortable and convenient for our needs, with of course amazing views. The only challenge was it was quite drafty in the Sail Loft when the Southeasterly blew, but Eleanor fitted us with a new heater that worked great. Overall, we had a great experience.

All the wonderful things to see and do!! We stayed at Boulders Beach Lodge where, from the deck, we saw penguins walking in the car park!! Really awesome stuff!!! Boulders Penguin Colony is something else. Do yourself a favour and get there!

Then there's the Jubilee Square Craft Market and the Harbour (we liked Fran's Place and her story), we visited the Toy Museum, danced to live music at 2 and 6 Pence, enjoyed the elegance of the Lord Nelson Inn where we had pizza and watched the Champions League final, spent a laid back afternoon sitting at the Black Marlin having wine and oysters and just watching the boats down below and then views, views and more views!! Absolutely breathtaking!

We'll be coming back to camp at Smitswinkel Bay (bucket list stuff!) and at another time at Miller's Point, can't wait!!!

P.S. Was surprised and sad to see that the British Hotel is closed. I really wanted to have a sort of tour of the inside if they'd have allowed me. I would appreciate it if you could let me know what is happening there?
