My daughter and I recently stayed in the Mariner's Guesthouse in Simonstown for 8 nights and it was simply lovely. Our room had an antique four poster bed as well as choice antique pieces. The private seating area looked onto our balcony, which in turn overlooked the Simonstown Naval Base and harbour. It was spacious and well laid out. The... More

Based on the excellent reviews on Tripadvisor, we booked our annual anniversary stay at Mariner Guest House in Simon's Town. We stayed in the superior room with an amazing view from the private balcony over the harbour. From the personal greeting at our arrival to our last enjoyable breakfast, we were made to feel special. The accommodation and service was... More

Awesome view of the ocean out of the rooms and a very nice living room area. The staff was really friendly and the breakfast very tasty with different options to choose from including french toast - would recommend it to everyone!

Excellent all round. Very clean, comfortable and people were great. Would recommend this guest house to anybody traveling to simonstown, there are loads of stairs so just be aware of that if mobility is a problem.

Decided at the last minute that we needed to chill. Stayed in the honeymoon suite. Nice view, beautiful room, balcony a great place to share a bottle of wine. Charming hostess, wonderful breakfast, great braai facility. One night too short. Only drawback was the inevitable Simonstown wind.

My family from UK visited and we were staying at the Mariner. Outstanding was the hospitality & professional approach. The picnic breakfast basket for early morning was excellent as well as the breakfasts everyday! Truly the best place to stay.

This place is nice. Not very centered but offering beautiful views. Rooms are big and clean. We could hear a baby crying in the room next door though and there was also a bad noise coming from the bathroom air system which we did report to reception when checking out. We had asked for 2 single beds (2 friends traveling... More

Efficient and friendly service, great views from the communal space and room, healthy and tasty breakfast. All good really. We had a one week stay for a dive trip with Pisces Divers and would definitely stay again. Recommend hiring a car as it's tricky to get around otherwise.
