Mariners Guesthouse was the perfect spot to spend a few days in Simons town. The views are exceptional, the superior room was perfect and the friendliness of the staff great! Will recommend this guesthouse to anyone wanting to get away for a few days.

My wife and me stayed for one night at Mariner. Everything was of a very high standard. The rooms was was appointed and the breakfast enough choice and originality. But it was the staff\s smiles and pride in their establishment that impressed us most.

Don't bother looking any further. I've stayed in most of the other places in Simonstown, and this is by far the best. Super friendly hostess, very helpful staff, lovely meals and service and all the facilities you need to relax after a day of exploration along the coast. Nuff said.

This hotel has a beautiful view of the harbour and of False Bay. They supply shuttle service so one can go to the restaurants in the evening and return safely. The common areas are spacious and comfortable. You could order suppers and eat in with advance notice.

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. We were made to feel right at home as soon as we walked in the door. Great location, beautiful views, and FANTASTIC staff. We stayed for two nights and have no complaints. The breakfasts were wonderful, we greatly enjoyed having coffee on our balcony in our room. We would definitely stay here again.
