Overlooking the Simonstown Harbour and with a 360 degree view of the Bay and the mountains behind you. A comfortable place to say and the owner takes pride in her "House". Lovely morning breakfasts and other meals if you so wish - if not she will guide you to the best restaurants nearby or further afield. Sit back relax and enjoy a glass of the Capes finest wines......

The guesthouse is in a good location with a lovely view. Unfortunately there was a gale force wind on one of the days of our visit (late February). This made exiting the guesthouse and getting into and out of our car tricky. Excellent, friendly service and comfortable, attractive accommodation. A warning for the elderly - there are lots of stairs. A convenient location for exploring the vicinity - but, be warned, on sunny summer weekend days Seaforth and Boulders beaches (including the penguin reserve) become very crowded.

Tucked away high up on the Simonstown hills it was quite difficult to find initially, but that was partly my fault, I never read the directions thoroughly, and as BOTH sides of the road are 'even' numbered added to the confusion. The room was comfortable and clean and the balcony view over the bay was lovely. Liesel was the perfect host. Nice to see a chalkboard choice of cooked breakfasts. was my first ever stay in Simonstown so can't compare the guesthouse with any other in the town, but in general it was up to expectations.

Our two night stay at the Mariner Guesthouse provided a peaceful haven from which we could explore the historic naval town and coastline along False Bay. The sumptuous breakfasts gave us a perfect start to the day. The room was comfortable and well equipped with all we needed. Friendly and efficient staff easily make the Mariner Guesthouse a favourite for anyone needing a delightful place to stay when visiting the Cape Peninsula.
