Is there anyway I could give 100✨✨✨ to Mariners Guest house?? We were warmly welcomed by Nandi who gave us an overview of the beautiful Guest house. The views from our bedroom were undisturbed and flawless, by far the best address in Simonstown. 👌👌 The breakfast was absolutely delish👌👌😜😜and filling. Clean and beautifully appointed lounge and breakfast rooms, classy to the maxxx. Thanks so much for a much needed time to unwind.
