I stayed only one night here with my 85 year old mum, and we shared the most wonderfully appointed twin room on the ground floor. The service was amazing, the house is old and grand and well maintained with a lovely garden and the breakfast was perfect in a gorgeous glassed room with even more perfectly fresh croissants. But the...

Carmichael guesthouse is an excellent place to stay when you are visiting Cape Town. A warm welcome, excellent service and breakfast. Comfortable rooms and a small swimming pool. If you want to run the TOM in 2018 this is a very good place to stay!

Stayed here to be near UCT while visiting daughter on semester abroad. Great location for visiting greater Cape Town area, however, as centrally located between downtown, winelands, Hout Bay and airport. Beautiful old house with huge rooms and great decor. Breakfasts were made to order and delicious. Owners were super friendly and provided many recommendations on sites and dining recommendations.

My husband and I traveled to S. Africa earlier this month. We had never been there but were delighted to have the good fortune to book a most wonderful B&B. It truly surpassed prior experiences in B&B's or Airbnb's in the USA. It is a richly updated Cape Victorian house that is beautifully appointed with classic art and furnishings. Our...
