Lovely place. Staff are friendly and keen to please. Nice breakfast cooked to order. Set on a steep hill in a residential area, the large windows make the most of the great view and give the place a spacious airy feel. Clean and tidy with self catering facilities (which we didn't use). This was one of our favourite places and... More

We spent eight nights at Mariner’s to take advantage of shark touring. Our room was comfortable and although we had an opportunity to relocate due to unrelated circumstances, we chose to stay. The location is somewhat remote, too far for us to walk into Simon’s Town, but that didn't bother us. The views from every room are superb, overlooking False... More

Would highly recommend the Mariner Guesthouse, the room was absolutely fantastic, bed was so comfortable, breakfast was delicious and the hospitality was very friendly and welcoming. Daleen kindly took care of bookings for our day trip and even lent us some rand as we had just arrived.
