My original booking at another guesthouse was messed up, so I was referred to Carmichael Guesthouse. As I didn’t really have any alternative, I accepted the booking with a little apprehension. I was pleasantly surprised at the beautiful house that suddenly came into view as I opened the front gate. I was warmly welcomed by owners Valerie and Yves, and shown to a very spacious and comfortable. room. The breakfast in a their conservatory gives you the feeling that you are sitting in their garden, Having stayed in literally dozens of guesthouses over the years, this has to be of the best I have experienced. Will I return? Hell Yes!!!
Did some lectures at UCT for a week, and stayed at the Carmichael. Excellent in every way – good rooms, good breakfast, helpful and amiable host, reasonable price, good location. Would stay again, and would mention it to others as well.

I stayed with three colleagues on a work visit to Cape Town. The Carmichael Guesthouse offered us a peaceful base for a very hectic week of meetings. The breakfasts were fantastic and the hosts warm, generous and very welcoming. I particularly enjoyed the fresh grapefruit juice from the tree in the garden!

I stayed at Carmichael guesthouse for 3 nights during a business trip. The accommodation was superb and breakfasts absolutely delicious. They also went out of their way to accommodate my unforeseen late check-in. Would definitely recommend this guesthouse.
