the bath seems to be slippery. Need a rubber mat or something that can enhance the grip when you taking a shower. otherwise there a risk of slipping and falling while bathing. Will always call again or recommend to a friend.

Thank you for your feedback. I hear what you are saying about the shower over bath being slippery. For hygienic reasons, we prefer not to add the rubber mat to the bath. The modern design of the bath with it's larger "shower" section and "opening" class door, as well as the ripple under the feet is meant to be comfortable... More

Staff and owners are so welcoming and helpfull, it is really refreshing. The house and the rooms are beautifull, the views are spectacular. Breakfast is fantastic. The mattress is too big for the bed, which is a bit uncomfortable on the sides.

Thank you for your review. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed your honeymoon stay at Mariner Guesthouse! Yes, the antique four poster bed in the Honeymoon Suite, as beautiful as it is, is unfortunately not a standard size. Because it's between a King and Queen size, we haven't managed to find a mattress to fit exactly. It's on... More

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.
