Lovely guesthouse
This hotel was great. The only thing missing for us was a bit more hospitality. Everyone was very kind, but we often wondered if anyone else was actually around or in the house. Additionally, the WiFi is very spotty- only an issue if you need to do any work or hop on the internet for some reason. Overall a very nice, clean, well-located guest house.

Nice Hotel, but Remote with Difficult Access
Nice and stylish hotel, but the location is removed from anything but the beach requiring a drive to get to Simon’s Town. Access to the hotel is somewhat difficult since the only access is via the very steep driveway (i.e. no pedestrian path). Parking is limited and tight. The hotel has a fantastic view of the ocean/beach from the front veranda. The staff are very nice and accommodating. The WiFi is absolutely the worst. It is weak and keeps logging out. The beds are nice, but the pillows are very firm. I assume that they could have been switched out, but I only realized this late at night and didn’t want to wander around looking for staff to address the issue. The breakfast was fantastic.

We stayed for 2 nights at Whale View Manor Guesthouse and the service and breakfast were very good. We watched two whales float past when sitting on our bedroom balcony. The hightlight of the whole holiday.

Stayed at the Whale View Manor Guesthouse which was very relaxing. The service and breakfast was was great sitting outside in the morning sun. We watched 2 whales go past the hotel while we sat on the balcony.

The hotel itself was beautiful, staff was also extremely helpful and welcoming. We even saw whales one morning while eating breakfast. I only really have two complaints- noise travels very easily so once any guest is up you hear them. Made it kind of tough after long travels. The other thing, they serve breakfast but that's it(this may have been our error as well) but it's difficult to get a ride around that area and there's not really anything to do except boulders beach. After that, unless you have your own transport- you're just kind of stuck at the hotel- hungry. But again, if we would of had our own car this would have been different.
