Guest Book

Our family (5) visiting from the US stayed at the Carmichael Guesthouse while in Cape Town. Hotel staff were very professional, helpful and organized from our initial booking and throughout our stay. Hotel organized a driver to collect us from the airport. Room was very nice and comfortable, very good breakfast, hotel was quiet and in good location. Recommend and would definitely stay here again.

Thank you again for a great stay. As usual professional and friendly service by the team! You will see me again. The victorian style guesthouse is beautiful. Rooms classy and comfortable. Breakfast is perfect. Host and hostess (owners) became friends.

We very much enjoyed our stay at Carmichael Guesthouse; the room was spacious and comfortable, the breakfasts in the sunny conservatory excellent. This is close enough to the center of the city to be convenient, away from the noise and bustle. We were able to walk to an excellent restaurant and the guesthouse is near to the Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden.

A wonderful 3 night stay! Valerie, Yves and staff were most friendly and welcoming. Our room was spacious and immaculately clean. The breakfast was healthy and delicious with exemplary presentation. Each morning Valerie would help plan our day in CT. The ambiance throughout the guesthouse was warm with an historical feel. Many thanks. Highly recommend.

All one could wish for in a guesthouse: wonderful hosts (including Joslin); beautiful home with super spacious rooms and a lovely garden; delicious breakfasts; and a good location (very good in relation to the university).

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.
