Our daughter is studying at University of Cape Town (UCT) for the semester so we ventured to SA to visit. We spent our first few nights at the Carmichael which is in close proximity to UCT. It was well appointed and the owners, Yves and Valerie, could not have been more friendly and welcoming. They were always there to offer... More

Very nice owners. Very clean. Our room was very spacious . The owners , Val and Yves were very helpful and helped us arrange many things during our stay. We had a few rainy days and they had lots of ideas for us on how to adjust our plans on account of the weather. Very pleasant!

Carmichael Guesthouse responded exactly to what I was looking for. A homy and friendly admosphere with a personal touch. Nicely furnished with some antique. Large rooms all very nicely decorated. Beautiful garden. The owners are clearly passionate in running their guesthouse and leave no stone unturned to make their guests feel comfortable and at home.

Dear Peter, Thank you so much for having taken the time to write such encouraging review. Even though your stay was short, you still noticed some fine details that usually most guests take a good 3 nights to start noticing. Hopefully we'll get to host you in the near future. In the meanwhile, keep well. Best regards / Yves More

I used the Carmichael Guesthouse to accomodate a young female relative from overseas and it was just perfect. She was overwhelmed by the kind reception she was met with and the quality of the place, a bigger and better room than she has at home, and also a larger and better bathroom. So from her perspective - and from mine,... More

Excellent location for students and parents that want to be close to UCT lower campus and the Jammie route. Helpful and friendly Management The rooms are large and super clean The only slight problem we experienced, is the noise experienced in the downstairs bedroom due to the wooden floors one hears the upstairs guests moving around and talking

We stayed for two nights before leaving Cape Town after our holiday and were really pleased we did. We were originally looking for somewhere on the airport side (and this is certainly ideal, an easy 15 minute ride) and spotted this place and the excellent reviews it was getting on TA. I think we had one of the smaller rooms... More

5 mins walk to UCT Lower Campus. Delightful, helpful hosts. The property is a beautiful old house, so a little noisy with the wooden floors, but still stunning. Breakfast excellent. Will definitely be back.
