We stayed here with a group of pupils on a recent visit to Simon's Town High School. The rooms are excellent, the view and breakfast superb and we were made to feel very welcome. The minibus into town and back for our evening meal was also most welcome. Would highly recommend.

We stayed at the Mariner guest house on a visit to get to know Simons Town . We were welcomed to a very clean comfortable guest house with really good views over the bay. We had a lovely large room with a big 4 poster bed which was lovely as it was Valentines weekend! The room had a microwave and... More

This is a lovely, clean, modern guesthouse overlooking False Bay. We were in an Executive Twin Room, so the ensuite is small with only a shower. More shelves and hooks in there would be welcome. The breakfasts were excellent with the added bonus of overlooking the bay each morning. We were able to sit on the terrace one morning and... More

I am happy you enjoyed your stay at Mariner Guesthouse. I appreciate your advice on adding extra hooks to the bathrooms. The Twin Room bathrooms are smaller than those of the other rooms with full bathrooms, so we will definitely add extra shelving as well. Kind regards, Liesel :) More

Lovely modern guesthouse way up on a steep hillside overlooking the port and bay. Large rooms with great views, large comfortable beds and plenty of facilities. Excellent breakfast and charming hosts. Good base for penguins at Boulders beach and for Cape Point.

We loved all aspects of our stay: our room and the breakfast were excellent, so was the friendliness of our hosts. Lovely attention to detail in the room and bath room. Stunning views over False Bay from the breakfast area and balcony.

We stayed in the family room (the one under the roof). Unfortunately that night, the wind was very strong, and the noise in the room was such that I only slept very little. The Manager was extremely sorry about the disagreement and offered us a serious rebate. The quality of the breakfast, served on the terrasse was such that we... More

Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback on your stay at Mariner Guesthouse. December/January are our windy months and we had an exceptionally windy January this year. I am once again very sorry for the disturbance this caused. We are in the process of putting more insulation to these ceilings to minimize the sound of the... More

Your hospitality, and everything was fantastic, a 100% referral to everyone i know. The only tiny problem was that the TV remote did not work so well. I love your place and will come back again. Thanking you for a fantastic weekend. Kind regards, Paul & Aiden.

A really pleasant stay (on business). The staff are very friendly and welcoming, without being obtrusive. Wake up to a fantastic view across the bay and enjoy the eggs royale. The house is clean and modern with all the facilities you would expect (and more).

We really enjoyed our stay at the Mariner Guesthouse. Every attention to detail was taken and everyone was very welcoming. We even left our passports in the safe and they kindly held them safely until we could return the next week. We highly recommend it!
