Mariner Guesthouse offers great rooms with breathtaking views over the town and False Bay. The quality of the service is great and the staff is friendly. an other advantage is the shuttle service to the waterfront

I've spend 7 nights in the "Mariner Guesthouse" in April 2017. Service and rooms are great and the view over "False Bay" is just awesome. There's absolutely nothing I could complain about and if I go back to Simon's Town, I'll stay at the Mariner Guesthouse again.

Close to everything in ST. Good room layout. Private enough even when fully booked. Friendly and good service for both local and foreign visitors. Kid friendly. Can definitely recommend. Great views and in quiet road.

What a wonderful stay! We arrived and we're greeted in such a warm and friendly way and shown our bedroom which had a gorgeous view. We not only had amazing service but the breakfasts were truly a treat! We felt so relaxed and spoilt after we left! Will definitely be back!

Location guarantees easy access to Boulders Beach and Cape of Good Hope. Parking lots are somewhat dangerous because of no securization of steep slope. Friendly Service and the complimentary transportation to the restaurant area at the habour are the "plus factors " of this guesthouse.

We had a wonderful stay in the guesthouse. The view is great. We loved the breakfast, first of all the "summer special". The service is excellent, all are so friendly. We can highly recommend this guesthouse.

The room I had was simply fantastic - impeccably clean, spacious, very well designed and, of course, with an incredible ocean view. The bed was so comfortable, the...
