Charming and cozy
I had a wonderful experience at Carmichael Guesthouse and would stay here again. The staff were very helpful before I arrived with helping me to arrange tours. I loved being away from the hustle and bustle of downtown in a quieter neighborhood in a charming house full of history. I felt very well taken care of and hope to come back someday.

Home from home
We loved every minute of our stay at Charmichael Guesthouse!!! Every detail of the property from the gardens to the guest rooms were perfectly thought out and exquisitely decorated in a Colonial yet modern style. Our room was absolutely massive with a beautiful high ceiling, it had everything you’d need and we have nil complaints about it! Breakfast was awesome - full continental spread which was divine along with a cooked breakfast of your choice - class! Finally, our hosts were amazing!!! They are a lovely couple who can’t do enough for their guests - sometimes hosts are overbearing or completely non-present, but these guys struck the balance just right! They helped us book tickets for table mountain, sorted us dinner reservations and even checked us into our flights and printed off our boarding cards so we could have an extra half hour in bed - I can’t speak highly enough of them! I’m sure you get the drift, but if you stay here I guarantee you won’t be disappointed! We’ll definitely be back!!!

Fantastic if only...
The guest house is old and beautiful and it was a pleasant experience all around if only the queen bed was more comfotable. The matrass was so hard we rolled around for 2 hours before falling asleep. Change that and I’ll give it full marks.
