I had a very pleasant stay. The house is bright and cheerful as is Yvonne. She also went out of her way to send a ring I left behind to New Zealand for me. Thank you so much Yvonne, it is much cherished. I wish you well with your business and happily recommend it to all :)

Travelling for work and the mariners guesthouse was recommended by a colleague who stayed recently. Its very clean, quiet and comfortable with a great brekkie, so much better than staying in another faceless hotel. Rooms are well equipped and spacious. Yvonne is a delightful host, very warm and friendly and made sure we were well fed before going to work...
