Khanye: The experience was lovely. The room was nicely decorated with antique furniture and the food was lovely. Mrs Barbara welcomed us like family and embraced us with open hands. It felt like a home away from home, only higher quality and no consitant reminder of the errands I forgot to run. I definitely wouldn't mind living with a person...

3min drive from Simon's Town, Barbara will host you like a friend. The nicely decorated room had a a view on the bay. A full breafast tailored to your taste with a long list of choices (you can have all of them) and an absolutely reasonable fare.

My friend and I were meeting in Cape Town as a convenient point between his gap year in the Zambian bush and my home in London. Cannon House fitted the requirement perfectly. The place is compact but perfectly formed, being comprised of only 3 guest rooms. Two have a (partially shared) balcony with the third having a patio alongside the...

We decided on a small mini weekend trip away with the kids in Simons Town and were fortunate enough to stumble across Cannon House. Perfect for our needs. We occupied the two rooms next door to each other. The kids in one room (twin beds) and us in the other, each with en-suite shower, basin and toilet. I enjoyed having...

We stayed at Cannon House for two weeks over December. The room was large and comfortable with an en-suite bathroom (shower, basin and toilet). There were coffee-making facilities in the room as well as a small television set. There was sufficient cupboard space in the room. Shower gel was provided as well as fresh towels every day. A hair dryer...

We had a lovely room with a small patio overlooking the bay, Cannon House is situated in a quiet location up on the hill. Barbara's breakfasts were great and she she gave advice on what to see and do in the area. Thanks for a great break, see you soon.

There is a friendly couple running this B&B. The breakfasts were great. We had booked a specific room, but on arrival found that it had been given to someone else. We had to spend the first night in a room that did not meet our needs. That was corrected for the subsequent nights, but that entailed packing up again and...

We stayed with Barbara at Cannon House for a week in late December 2011. Our room and the view of the harbour was breath taking. We had breakfast bought to us on our own balcony every morning which was lovely. Barbara was extremely helpful and friendly, giving us lots of local advise and information. We even had free wifi access...

We stayed in November and had a room that opened onto an amazing view of the bay which we admired as we had breakfast out on the balcony on each day. Cannon House is in a peaceful location so is perfect for chilling, enjoying the penguins at Bolders and venturing out to the Cape of Good Hope. There are plenty...
