If I was ever going to open by own B&B - and the thought crosses my mind every time I'm stuck on the subway - I was use Mariner's as a example of how to do everything just right. The attention to detail and customer service was exemplary. This hotel was chosen for me by the agents at African Eco-Shark... More

It was really a great experience to stay at such a gem. It was very tranquil and relaxing. We only realised there were other guests the morning when we went for breakfast. Thank you Tania for making our stay so special.

As a guesthouse owner not far away we decided to get away from our own guesthouse for the weekend with our children. We were highly impressed with the staff, fabulous breakfasts, lovely comfortable rooms and sensational views! Well done on a wonderful guesthouse, we will certainly recommend you to all

We try get to this establishment once a year when we can, like always we enjoy the service, view and tranquility of our stay. The view over the Simons Town Naval base whilst having breakfast is awesome as well as the ocean beyond that.

Very well kept and fabulous location. The view was great. Parking was a bit of a problem when the place was full. It was nice to sit out on the balcony but that could do with a bit more weather proofing, though we are sure it will be great as it is in the summer! Nice attention to little details.... More

Found the staff extremely friendly and helpful. The location is amazing up the side of the hill - we saw whales from the breakfast table, and its about 40 mins into Cape Town. The bedroom was large, very nicely furnished and the bed comfortable. Breakfast was fantastic, choice of cooked courses as well as the usual cold choices. Frankly I... More

While the location on a hill is a little challenging for those with limited mobility - the views it offered were excellent. Staff and accommodation was top notch. Food was fab and the standard of rooms was very high
