Hotel staff were very friendly, room & rest of hotel was excellent. The view from the room, and breakfast area was fantastic - slightly steep (but fairly short) walk up from Simon's Town (and Boulder's Beach penguins - also 10 mins walk away) given that, but worthwhile.

Excellent spacious room with a comfortable king bed with a balcony overlooking the water. The guesthouse is perched on a hill so the views are completely unobstructed. Great common area with a reasonably priced cash bar where you can hang out and enjoy the view. Included

Hi there, yes, the Family Unit is ideal for families like yours. The rooms are spacious and inter-leading, each with its own facilities. We can easily add an extra kiddies-bed for your 3 year old. You are welcome to add on breakfast. Your 3-year old will eat for free. For the rest of the family it will be R130 per person for a full breakfast, which I can assure you is worth it! :) Kind regards, Liesel Owner - Mariner Guesthouse

Is the Executive king room air conditioned?
Hi there, The Executive rooms are not air conditioned, but they have panel heaters and ceiling fans. These rooms also have sea-facing balconies with a cool breeze that is normally present. Simon's Town has very moderate temperatures, so depending on the time of year you are planning to visit, this might be a consideration. Our Sail Rooms and Superior Room all have air conditioners. I will tell you more in your next question. Best regards, Liesel Owner - Mariner Guesthouse Simon's Town

"Best views at front, built on different levels so there are stairs."
"ask for front deck room"
"Room #1 is nice (with a kitchenette) and right off the common area, but it was also quiet."
"Ask for a room with the best view"
"Ask for rooms that face the bay."
