Carmichael Guesthouse

Reviewed November 19, 2011

I have just returned from my third extended stay in Cape Town in recent years, three weeks this time. Each time I have stayed at the Carmichael Guest House - it really feels like a home away from home. The house is magnifcent and the rooms have character with high ceilings, fireplaces and polished wooden floors. The garden is very pretty and peaceful. The guesthouse is really well situated to take advantage of the excellent Cape Town road system yet only takes 15 minutes to reach from the airport. Perhaps best of all Yves and Valerie are attentive but unobtrusive hosts. I can't think of anywhere better to stay in Cape Town.

Yves and Valerie certainly made me feel relaxed. This old Victorian house has so much character and is well positioned for trips to Kirstenbosch, drives round the mountain, beaches a or Cape Town, golf courses not far. A very good breakfast set me on my way. To be able to talk in French was a real plus.

Yves and Valerie were the best hosts you can imagine. Everything was perfect: the hospitality, the food, the rooms, the location. It even has a nice little pool!

We received a warm welcome and superb hospitality from Yves and Valerie who own this comfortable old home, full of European style. The breakfasts were excellent as was the dinner they cooked us one night. The house is spacious and our bedroom was huge. It is also very well located for exploring most parts of Cape Town and its surroundings, especially Kirstenbosch just a few minutes away.

We loved it and would definitely return.
