Simon’s Town is a small seaside village on the southern tip of the Cape Peninsula. It is significant to South African history because it is the site of one of the country’s oldest operational naval stations.
Named after Governor Simon van der Stel, Simon’s Town was a Dutch naval anchorage beginning in 1741, and its harbour served as a refuge for merchant ships and whalers. It was the headquarters of the British South Atlantic Naval Squadron in 1814, and the jurisdiction of the naval facilities was transferred to South Africa in 1957.
Expect to see many monuments, memorials and statues dedicated to past seafarers and pioneers when visiting Simon’s Town. A statue dedicated to Just Nuisance, the only dog ever officially enlisted in the South African Navy, stands just outside the Quayside Hotel.
Able Seaman Just Nuisance served between 1939 and 1944 in Simon’s Town. The beloved Great Dane died in 1944 and was buried with full military honours, a Royal Marine firing party and a lone bugler.
The Quayside Hotel is positioned on the water’s edge of Simon’s Town Harbor with breathtaking views over False Bay.
Its unique location provides guests with spectacular views of yachts and naval vessels, which no other hotel in the area can compete with.
