Well located guesthouse with great views and friendly personalized service. I stayed overnight, but had to leave before dawn the next morning. They went out of their way to prepare a takeaway breakfast pack.

Mariner Guesthouse was beautiful, clean, and very welcoming. We asked for a room with a view and were not disappointed. Breakfast was delicious! I loved the french toast. The morning we left we had to leave early and the staff prepared a breakfast for us and had it ready the night before. There was a little kitchenette outside our room,... More

Can't beat the views from these rooms! Exceptional service, adorable room, and the most amazing hot cooked breakfast. The perfect location, super close to Boulder's Beach to see the penguins! The most friendly staff and beautiful setting you can imagine.

Can't recommend this place enough. Great staff, beautiful location. A 10-15 min walk from main town centre, but owners run a dinner shuttle which helps those without vehicles. One of the highlights of the trip.
