Verified reviewexcellent

This establishment deserves 4 stars because the service here is friendy and amazing. The rooms are simply luxerious and you feel as though you are spending the night in a truly unforgettable place. Wonderful beds, an old style honesty bar for you to enjoy and an awesome jacuzzi! For breakfast you can enjoy a full english breakfast [none of that cereal ony nonsense], whilst using using their telescopes to view the lighthouse from the Cheriton. If you like visiting museums, Dirks collection of all thing challenges many of the museums in Simons town. Im not giving any more secrets of the Cheriton away, you have to experience it for yourself! I really recommend this place and in winter you can enjoy the jacuzzi,even in the cold!
