Had a great time at The Mariner. Great living area with fruit and beverages available at all times. A hot fire for the cold evenings and a fantastic view. The rooms are big and clean. The breakfasts excellent and the staff very friendly and helpful.

I stayed at The Mariner in Winter and was fully taken in by the amazing view across Falsebay on my entry AND the homely fire in the lounge's fireplace. I learned that the view was available everywhere, even from my bed. My room was great and modern with a lot of light (thx to the view) and had a fancy... More

This was our first time staying at a guest house and we now have a new found respect for them. The place was clean and service from the cleaning staff and managers were awesome. The rooms were spacious beds were comfortable. The breakfast was lovely and was prepared to perfection. I will definitely recommend a stay here.
