Your hospitality, and everything was fantastic, a 100% referral to everyone i know. The only tiny problem was that the TV remote did not work so well. I love your place and will come back again. Thanking you for a fantastic weekend. Kind regards, Paul & Aiden.

Mariner Guesthouse has everything required for a business traveler and I am already planning to take my wife there for a weekend of relaxation and exploration. The rooms are excellent and the breakfast was delicious. The staff were well-trained and professional. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

A really pleasant stay (on business). The staff are very friendly and welcoming, without being obtrusive. Wake up to a fantastic view across the bay and enjoy the eggs royale. The house is clean and modern with all the facilities you would expect (and more).

We really enjoyed our stay at the Mariner Guesthouse. Every attention to detail was taken and everyone was very welcoming. We even left our passports in the safe and they kindly held them safely until we could return the next week. We highly recommend it!

The hotel has the most incredible view - the moment you open the front door you walk into the lounge with huge fireplace, fruit basket, hot coffee, fresh cookies and the balcony overlooking False Bay. Beautiful hotel that feels like your own private luxury villa away from it all. Have a drink on the balcony in the evening and listen... More

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
