About Cheriton Guest House B&B

Cheriton Guest House offers cosy accommodation with warm, friendly service in a century old home overlooking False Bay and the historic naval town of Simon’s Town. The well preserved, elegant Victorian house dates back to 1898.

Our tranquil garden offers abundant birdlife with over 30 different species visiting frequently. We are within easy walking distance of the penguins at Boulders, Seaforth Beach, restaurants and all the conveniences of the town.

The strong maritime theme throughout Cheriton is particularly noticeable in the ‘Just Nuisance’ pub. This honesty bar which is packed with naval artifacts is for the exclusive use of our guests. Attached to it is a room called the 'snug' which is stocked with various collections and board games for chilly winter evenings. Free Wi-Fi throughout the guesthouse.

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!
