We only stayed one night, but we were very satisfied! The hotel was very beautiful in a prime location, very close to Boulders Beach. The room was perfect and breakfast was delicious!! Wish we could've stayed longer!!

Nice stay by the sea. Book a sea view room with balcony. Breakfast was terrific very personable staff. Need a vehicle to access hotel. Difficult to walk to. Basement rooms are quite dark. Gorgeous pool and view fro shared spaces.

Stayed here the night of our wedding. So lovely!! Buffet breakfast was lush and the staff friendly. Stunning views. Simon's Town is one of my favourite areas on Cape Town. Loads to do but in a relaxing way.

Gorgeous property, great value for money. Perfect Location with amazing views of the ocean and mountains. Staff was very warm and helpful. Extremely clean property, we were 100% satisfied. The small blankets on the veranda was a nice touch:)

High against the mountain above Simon's Town, overlooking False Bay, is nestled one of the most beautiful guest houses in South Africa. From the minute we stepped into the lounge and patio area, my wife and I were in awe of the views. Our room (Sunrise Suite) has its own patio next to the rim flow pool. The room is...

The location and the house itself is very beautyful. The view from the bedroom "Moonpath" and from the poolarea was breathtaking. Breakfast was standard. The negative was that a woman (didn't know her name because she didn't introduce herself) demand our payment very briefly. Didn't ask how our stay was and we didn't recieve any "good Bye".

This property is not suitable for a handicapped person. There is very limited help with carryimg the luggage on steep outside stairs. There is no safety reeling. There is no fridge in the room for a chilled glass of wine. Glasses are provided . There is a lot of attention to superficial detail in the decor. But the layout and...

If we had known how spectacular this accommodation is, we would have stayed longer. Unfortunately we had already booked our next B&B. Aqua Terra is pure luxury: the room with balcony, the living-room with fireplace and the pool (which we didn't use because of our short stay) and sun room. Everything was perfect: breakfast, the service. I was given a...

We loved the Aqua Terra, lovely rooms. The breakfast was wonderful, so fresh and smartly presented. Loved the views from our balcony and also from the B&B lounge and dining room. Efficient friendly staff.. Able to walk each morning along the sea front from this location, past the golf course to boulders beach, Penguins and huge boulders, fantastic.

We arrived and waited for over three hours as the B&B was closed and the manager was out. She said we had cancelled and wasn't expecting us but Booking.com confirmed we had a valid booking. There was no acceptance of any mistake on the managers part and her attitude was very cold and indifferent. After another hour or so and...
