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.

Dear Janine, Thank you for you kind review. Needles to say that we are looking forward to host you in the near future.

We spent three days at the Carmichael Guesthouse. The owners, Valerie and Yves, clearly have a passion for their house and its guests. It is a classic building, with spacious rooms, that have been updated with very nice contemporary bathrooms. The gardens surrounding the house are attractive and a nice complement to the breakfast room. The breakfast is tasty and... More

Dear Sanet, Thank you for having taken the time to write this kind review. At Carmichael Guesthouse, we made the choice not to have aircon units for two reasons: 1- it would go against our quest to be as environmental friendly as possible, 2- in large Family Suites with such high ceilings it would require enormous units which would deprave...

We were a group of 5 friends renting three rooms in Carmichael house in January, for two nights, and the stay was pleasant. It is an old colonial house that has been very well kept and can provide an idea of the life in a rich family during the XXth century. The rooms are generally large and well decorated, with... More
