    Stayed two nights at Mariner, where everything was wonderful. The room was spacious and the balcony offered us a great view. Breakfasts were amazing and selection was beyond what we needed. Two great nights, we absolutly loved it.

    The Mariner is a fantastic guesthouse with friendly staff, excellent breakfast, great view and nicely done up rooms. We enjoyed the two nights and will come back if we visit South Africa next time. Many thanks for the stay.
